Review of 'Hero'

hero.jpg A fantastic “sword play” movie telling the story of a “faceless warrior” who works his way through various warriors who threaten the king to finally face the king. A fantastic series of action sequences tell and re-tell the story based upon the deceptions put forward by the characters. Not only tremendous action but also a great story and fantastic drama. This is all supported with stunning scenery and an inspiring musical score. A completely new take on the genre of Chinese martial arts movies.
