We have finally managed to watch the Chinese movie Hero and what a treat it was. Seeing it was like marveling at a piece of art. Or as the husband said : “It played like poetry”.
From an aesthetic point of view, the movie was beautiful. However, it was a bit low on martial arts fights. There were some, but they were neither as abundant nor as vibrant as those found in the movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
Overall, the movie is an outstanding work of art that’s worth both your money and time. Two thumbs up!
