I want to hurt myself for waiting so long before watching this gem


I bought this movie at the same time as crouching Tiger hidden Dragon which I watched first because of all the hype around it. CTHD left a bitter impression on me but it was not too bad. (Rate it 6.5/10)
Now this one!
Mesmerizing, enthralling, spectacular, stunning, sublime, powerful, dazzling, moving...pick your word. This movie is everything a masterpiece should be. Impeccable on all levels. It's the type of movie that makes me go Wow! And the cast! Andy Lau is becoming one of my favorite dudes out there. Ziyi Zhang and Takeshi Kaneshiro were perfect. Again, Wow! It took everything for me to pause it to get a drink so much It's great. I wish it was longer too so I could stay hidden behind those tall bamboo trees and see a little more of this beautiful spectacle. Instant favourite. 10/10

If you liked Crouching Tiger and Flying Daggers, definitely watch Hero! I, too, finally got around to watching all of these films recently and Hero was my favorite of the three. It's directed by Zhang Yimou (Flying Daggers) and also stars Zhang Ziyi. All are really beautiful films.

I agree Hero is an outstanding movie, a 'must see' in my opinion

I actually started CTHD and couldn't finish it. I've watched Hero once and thought it was well done. But HoFD is a movie that I watch often. I think it's the most beautiful film ever made.
