Movie Review: Hero
I saw Hero, starting Jet Li, this weekend. This is definitely not typical, mindless Jet Li fare. Hero is story of the first emporer of China and his attempt to unify the country. The film unfolds through a variety of flashbacks recounting several possible assasination attempts. The cinematography is fantastic as are the fight scenes. Director Zhang Zimou will definitely helm big budget American films in the near future. Fans of "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" will especially enjoy this film. Check out the trailer here.
