"Герой" (Hero) - фильм на китайском языке, который полностью снимался в Азии с лета 2001 года по 2002 год. Сюжет основан на историческом факте убийства важного политического деятеля. Действия происходят в эпоху первого императора Китая Ши Хуанг Ди (Shi Huang Di). Создатели пытаются исследовать и лучше понять чисто китайскую концепцию героизма, а также предвзятые мнения о подвигах и героях.

В Период Воюющих земель Китай был разделен на семь царств. Долгие годы эти царства боролись друг с другом. В результате, десятилетиями страдали и гибли люди.
Царство Цинь было настроено решительнее всех. Царь Циня мечтал завоевать весь Китай и стать его Первым Императором. Долгое время он был мишенью для убийц из других царств, но самый большой страх внушали три легендарных воина "Сломанный меч", "Летящая снежинка" и "Небо".
Тому, кто сразит этих трех воинов, царь Циня пообещал большую власть и горы золота. Но победить их было практически невозможно. За десять лет никто так и не приблизился к обещанному вознаграждению.
Но вот во дворце появляется некто "Безымянный", который преподносит царю оружие трех убитых воинов, и царь с нетерпением ждет его объяснений. Находясь во дворце, всего в десяти шагах от самого царя, "Безымянный" рассказывает свою необычную историю

While i enjoyed this movie very much, i believe Hero will get the kinds of reviews and responses that Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (CTHD) did, and still does, ie. either you liked it very much, or you couldn't see what the fuss was all about. This dichotomy of opinions makes for interesting study because it seems to cut across cultural and intellectual differences. Everywhere the film is shown, there will a segment of the audience that will love and rave about it, and another segment that will be wondering if they had been watching the same movie. I can't explain why this is so, but i suspect it has a lot to do with a viewer's initial expectation of the movie, and then his perception and appreciation of the nuances in the telling of the storyline.

Hero is a film that is beautiful in many aspects. The direction and photography is artsy without being pretentious. Every shot is worthy of being a work of art in itself. The language spoken is traditional mandarin, but oh, so easy to the ear, even though i couldn't understand every word. (I don't think Tony's and Maggie's voices were dubbed, but i could be mistaken). The main characters were very well acted out, especially that of the role of the Qin Emperor. Zhang Ziyi's character was largely insignificant though, so i think she's been put in to add some star power to the production. The fighting scenes are unusual by most standards, employing an interesting combination of CGI and real action. Some of the powers that the characters possess appear too amazing to be true, but remember that some of the fights only took place in the fighters' imagination. The music, though quite similar to that in CTHD, is appropriate, and sticks hauntingly to the back of your mind long after the movie is over.

I went to the cinema having heard some of the hype leading to the movie, but with no real knowledge of the storyline, and not expecting a lot. I think that helped me enjoy the movie more, because the way the story unfolded actually set me thinking and anticipating in a manner that i could not have had i known more about the storyline. The message at the end of the movie is simple, but certainly open for debate. In fairness, i don't think the director attempted to provide an answer, as to whether the decision made by the Nameless One was the correct one or not, but rather to ask questions. I'd better not give out too much here, but it certainly set me thinking about things for a little while after the show had ended. These days, any movie that can get me pondering after the credits go down has got to be pretty good.

Overall an excellent movie. I'm sure some areas could be better, but i can't think of any right now. Highly recommended.
