Does the World Need a Hero? The title of Zhang Yi Mou's latest film Hero purposely emphasizes the singularity of its title. Yet perhaps it can be said that if the movie is indeed centered solely on just ONE concept, notion and example of the divine Hero that could be deduced, then its scope may be a bit too narrow-minded. One can say that the movie depicts various heroic virtues, but exactly whom one...

To Fragem.
This movie is a wuxia genre so therefore it would DEFINITELY involved flying martia art scenes. No one goes and watch a supernatural film an d criticized the characters superhuman abilities.


This movie is asolutely fantastic and beautiful.

Many people I know didnt like this film. However the meaning entrenched in it was the factor that really got to me. It was one of those films that leave you satisfied after watching it and feel like it has given you something beyond entertainment.

This movie was ok but I just have on beef about this movie. The fight scenes. All of them were unbelievable. I don't care how skilled you are in martial arts, you dont move and fly around like birds.

How can I identify with the characters if all of them have superhuman capabilites. Like the ablity to take on 100's people at one time. Or jump 50 to 70 feet in the air and fly around like a bird

Question - did Sky (Donnie Yen) die in the film? I didn't think so, because he staged his death with Wu Ming in front of the royal guards.. and when asked how he is doing later on in the film, Wu Ming said he is "recovering." So that tells me he wasn't quite dead.
