well none of his films are "critically acclaimed" so he prolly need a little spending moolah.

"hero" was well liked by the critics right?

01-28-2005, 09:19 AM
Yeah, I'm pretty sure that did well critically.

Did anyone see that? Any good?

was he in that one? don't even remember...

Yeah, I believe his type of role in that film is usually referred to as "starring in".

I know that "Hero" is starting to dig cited by HK critics... they said it only appeals to Hollywood.

I think Hero is an outstanding film. The shots are amazing, and the use of color is excellent. I also like the style of the whole film as mostly being stories told. It's definately a better film than I was expecting...one of those "looking for a $5 in your wallet, but finding a $20" moments.

Hahaha. That is very funny, government... I think we should point out that that isn't actually Mr. Li in the banner, and your statement was farcical lest anyone think otherwise.

I agree with pianorain. I saw Hero and thought it was very, very well done. Imported movies that do well here tend to be geared toward a Hollywood audience and not one of Hong Kong. I actually like such films much less than "real" Chinese movies, but this and House of Flying Daggers were very well done, for American Chinese movies (with Hero being the better of the two by far).

I didn't care for Hero that much to be honest. It had some beautiful shots in it but I dunno, it just didn't click very well for me. I thought Flying Daggers was far more interesting with some shots that were equally if not more beautiful. And of course neither come close to my favorite movie of all time, Crouching Tiger ;)

Did anyone see [Hero]? Any good?
Hero is the best movie I've ever seen, as well as the most beautiful, and I've seen a few. It's worth seeing for the use of colors only, but the fighting scenes are outstanding, as well as the music. The story is somewhat non-linear, but quite easy to follow.

Flying daggers is very good, but it doesn't equal Hero.

well none of his films are "critically acclaimed" Heh. :rolleyes:

Look and enjoy:
