I was amazed and entralled all the way through... and very confused. besides being in tears at the the end I did understand alot of it. But probably like most people I had to watch it again to understand it.
to all the people who thought this was a good "action" movie, its not...its a movie about the history of china...i heard there was many mistakes in this movie,(historic mostakes) and many people from china didn`t think it was good. to me it was an excellent movie, well acted. i didnt expect the movie to be poetic, i thought the movie contains lots of fight scenes. but i was wrong, i loved it even though many of the fight scenes were "really" fake. im just saying this movie is a must see. i`ve seen it 10 times lol
like many others, I also thought this movie was very very confusing. but even though it didnt make much sense, I still enjoyed it because of the beautiful colours and leaps and all the other things that looked like poetry. ****
It wasn`t too confusing if you pay attention. Zhang Yimou used a great method in dealing with the chronology of the plot.
I really liked the arrow part when Jet Li and that person were defendign the castle, and when it stopped, the whole place was stuck with arrows lol!
it was very confusing.
I was totally confused after the first 20minutes and therefore couldn`t enjoy the rest.
i like it. it`s superbb. jet li is so handsome. it`s great.
I laugh at the people who can`t read subs in their own language. This is an amazing movie.
Very good film. Jet li and the other actors really made this film extrordinary!
this is one of the best chinese culture ever presented. except the fight scence over the water is too unbelievable
This is one of the finest movies I have ever seen. Breathtaking on many levels. Even though it can be lame, I recommend the over-dubbed version because you don`t want to take your eyes off of the screen. Brilliant.
"A movie to remember for a lifetime" - Hero is spectacular combination of martial arts, drama, and special effects. The movie truly sparks an interest in China`s history and cultures. Although Jet Li is the marque star, the co-stars in this movie set it apart from any other movie in which I`ve seen him. The skills and acting talent combined with a special story filmed with unmatched special effects made this one "a movie to remember for a lifetime."
the best movie ever
one of the best movies i`ve ever seen
There is no country in the world that can produce something like "Hero" except China. It`s a masterfully done movie that hugely enriches "vocabulary" of modern cinema. Looks like a masterrpiece. We`` see about that in 20-30 years, but what we can say know is: "This is something that offer new ways and perspectives to anybody who maes or watches movies.
This is one of the worst movies i have ever seen. The hype was so huge and i was expecting an epic, much like the last samuri. However all i got was a bunch of flying, water bouncing, arrow blocking rubbish.
Like watching a dream...This movie is both mesmerizing and exciting. Unrivaled martial arts action with fantastic special effects and camera work. I had to watch it twice. The imagery is so surreal it reminded me of The Cell and Jet Li is obviously one of the brightest martial arts stars in the world. Maybe people will start taking Asian films seriously and finally dissolve that "stereotypical kung-fu movie" prejudice so many North Americans have.
I sat in the movies til the last credit was shown, went outside and had a coffee and cry then bought a ticket and watched it again. ABSOLUTELY SUPERB!!
Best Movie I`ve ever seen
GREAT GREAT MOVIE I LIKE IT !!!!!
This is a fine movie. The actors, cinematography, the story, it`s good. Go see this flick...
could have been better but overall pretty good
A refreshing change from the visual thoughtlessness so often seen in the cinema. I was so surprised when someone i went to see this movie with said they thought it was poor. I think it was a beautiful, carefully crafted master piece. And whether you like it or not says a lot about your intelligence and appreciation of fine works.
i love it
Hero is an Oscar Winner Movie: Reasons: 1. A philosophical teaching for the troubled world. 2. Teaches what a true hero is 3. Each of us is a hero when we behave selflessly for others` sake.
Visual candy!Every picture, every scene is artisticaly perfect. I have never seen anything so beautiful. Visual masterpiece!
Georgeous cinematography, beautiful acting. I was expecting little more than a pretty-to-look-at martial arts film, but was instead met with an intriguing story. Lots of questions are raised. Best film I`ve seen in a long time.
hero...was a great action movie
One of the best films I`ve ever seen, if not the best.
The most stunning use of color I have ever seen in a film. "Hero" should become a mandatory viewing assignment for all cinematography students.
Awesome. Don`t call the movie boring. Just `cause you don`t understand it, doesn`t mean you can spoil it for the rest of us.

Ahhhh, I`m like slobbering over Nameless` cute body. I can`t believe that people don`t like this movie. You`ve got to be kidding me, because who wouldn`t want to see a body like that. The movie was pretty good; you`ve just gotta understand the movie. I don`t see why other people don`t like this movie. It`s original, and AWESOME. It`s something different. Whoever made this movie, good job at making it, and don`t pay attention to all the spoilers.
Pretty cool movie. I love the cool action. I like how Nameless represents his province. I think he`s very cute and a good actor. Thanks for creating the movie. It`s very original.
Hero, Oscar is calling your name!
This film is a massive propaganda coup for China. This is all part of China`s slow but sure steps to total world domination ... believe it or not but this film illustrates why they will succeed in this.
If I was watching this at home on tv ... I would`ve changed the channel about 5 minutes after the movie started. a waste of 11 dollars. it`s about the same 4 people flying around fighting each other over and over and over again. and yes the subtitles moved way too fast. How stupid
How many times can you see people flying around with swords in hand? Boring! Boring! Boring! The cinematography and costumes were the only saving grace. Subtitles were too fast to read!
Alright. it showed the beautiful landscapes of China, and the marvelous language of Manderin. I was slightly dissapointed that it was all sub-titles (at least it`s better then being doubed), but as I said before, Manderin is a beautiful language.
Awesome. But you can buy it any asian video store because it was released in China 2 years before it was picked up my US marketers.
Americans have no concept of beauty. Thank goodness we have the Chinese to remind us. Beyond the fascinating story and special effects, this film is a series of artworks that delight the eyes, the heart and the mind.
Great colors and choreography - very luxurious. Very enjoyable, not a masterpiece but better than most stuff coming out of Hollywood.
this movie was out in Hongkong like 2 years ago, you guys are cheated LOL, go borrow the VCD at pacific mall !!
This movie was good..however, some scenes were unbelievable..but then again so is James Bond movies..So can`t really complain. Overall I thought this movie was well done and was interesting.
Breathtakingly Beautiful cinematography, interesting twist and story line, powerful/controversial message
if you love crouching tiger, you will love Hero.
