Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Ravishes the eye without quite touching the heart.
Fresh: It's not too much to say that Hero is one of the most ravishing spectacles the movies have given us.
Fresh: The result is not so much a historical epic as a kind of highly determined ballet: dreamy with bloodless violence, relying less on shades of character than on magnificence of gesture.
Fresh: So deliriously chockablock with high-flying, color-coordinated fight scenes that non-aficionados may find it all a bit bewildering -- a gorgeous abstraction. It sure is gorgeous, though, and it has a dream cast.
While I do love this movie, it would have been nice to know that the one Itunes sold was the english subtitles. The whole movie was in chinese.
This is such a beautiful story. A visual poem. The costumes and the language are also true to the times. Bravo!
Worth the money
I have seen this movie 3 times and it still captivates me every time. This movie is magnificent. The music, acting, and story are all excellent. Now it is a foreign film so if you don't like sub titles then you might not like that about this movie. I personally don't mind them. I would recommend this movie. Most definitely.
