Fresh: Ravishes the eye without quite touching the heart. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Aug 5, 2013

Fresh: It's not too much to say that Hero is one of the most ravishing spectacles the movies have given us. – Charles Taylor,, Aug 5, 2013

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. – Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Aug 5, 2013

Fresh: Bursting with luscious color and stunning visual effects. – Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Beautiful Movie

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.

Film Language

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.
