Posted:Yeah, Spitfire and I both really liked it.

My favourite part- when the 2 women (I can't remember any names- we watched it a while ago) were sword fighting in the forest.
I love the use of colour in that scene- it was beautiful.

Posted:Mmm I love Hero too its my favoruite foreign film, it even trumps Ring which I love (the orrigional)



I like how the story unfolds, you hear Nameless' version which has some spectacular fight scenes in it, my favoruite being Moon (Zhang Zhi Zhi) and Falling Snows battle in the forrest, not only because of the colours but it has alot of emotion attached to it.



Then half way through the story changes and you hear the Emporers version, which includes more fight scenes and more story its a very clever way to tell the story, and it also means you can put in alot of fight scenes and not miss out on plot. Then my favourite scene is the part where they fight in the scroll room, between Snow, Moon and Broken Sword



That film is so lush ubblove

Posted:I think this thread should have a spoiler notice on it now...

But yeah absolutely top film, one of my mates still has my dvd angry *grrr-ness* and I actually found it more enjoyable than 'house of flying daggers'. I think although there are many similarities in cinematic style, 'Hero' was simply more enjoyable for me to watch as it kept a reasonable pace without the plot suffering at all.

Posted:If you are a fan of Asian Cinema (which I'm not clued up in by any means) check out "Zatoichi". It's a Japanese film and again, I think it's brilliant. There is some awesome music in it. They create beats out of the farmers in their fields.

Hero had a plot? I must have missed it the first two times. biggrin pretty fight scenes though. this is like the "gonzo" of kung-fu movies ("gonzo" in the porn sense, not sure if that term's used overseas actually). i like it well enough, but it's definitely the most over-hyped excuse for excessive wirework i've ever seen in a movie (and that's including shaolin soccer). as a benefit, thinking about this movie usually makes me want to watch crouching tiger again. *shrug*

Posted:I love the Director of Hero, and dude...lets just talk about the cimematography of that film. Could it be anymore beautiful?? The cast was great, locations were great (esp. the lake scene!!). One of my favorite movies...just watched it last night!

There is no strong performance without a little fanaticism in the performer.
