Just Saw Last Hero of China

Recommended Posts

I simply cant believe how amazing this flick is. When does this thing come out in the states?? It's serious Best Picture material. IMO HERO is Head and Shoulders above Crouching tiger and the other Similar Chinese Period/Fantasy Flicks.

Jet Li was just Wonderful. What really impressed me the most (Understatement) is the Truely Jaw Droping Cinematography and Visuals. I mean Good God!!!

I clearly am going to go see this in the theater if/When it comes out. Im still sitting here Astonished at how Impressive/Spectacular/Riveting/Creative.. *WOW*.

Hey you, how many times do we have to post this : If you're going to post about something worth posting about, at the very least, provide a link, useful information etc etc

So, if this movie is not out yet in the States, how did you get to see it? Last time I checked, Idaho was still in the continental USA. So, did you, uhm, hop over to Asia on your magic carpet, saw the movie and whizzed back home?

From what I understand its going to get released in the US sometime in november so it can make the Acadamy awards. It won best picture for the Foreign acadamy awards.

And most important...

You didn't answer my question. If it came out overseas last year, how come you are able to see it now. And how did you pull that off?

I had heard about it for a while, and Finally broke down and ordered the Subtitled DVD. I Am still going to go see it when it hits the Theatres here in the US. This is Definitly Big Screen Material. Best movie I have seen all year.


Thats better

Historical fiction is far more interesting than fantasy... Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon is more fantasy than realism. Hero is based on some Chinese legends... There actually WERE plenty of assassins trying to kill Emperor Qin (founder of Qin Dynasty) (It's pronounced "chin"). So the storytellers embellished it with kungfu...
