Hero is a story about a person (“Nameless”) defeated three warriors, enemy of Qin Shi Huang (who at last would unite China).

But why? What’s his motive?
This movie answers this question from several point of views (Roshomon’s style).

Four things I like about this movie..

1. The Roshomon style.. the same facts are viewed differently by different people…
2. Eyecandy…. each story has different color tone… so many artistic scenes… excellent action sequence.
3. The casts… Jet Li, Donnie Yen, Tony Leung… so-adorable Maggie Cheung, and Zhang Ziyi.
4. The philosophy (especially when you know the story about Qin Shi Huang)…. especially the words : “Tian Shia” (Under Heaven)

I like it more than Crouching Tiger (which I think is overrated). I have watched it several times already.

Title card :
People give up their lives for many reasons.
For friendship, for love, for an ideal
And people kill for the same reasons…
Before China was one great country, it was divided into seven warring states.
In the Kingdom of Qin was a ruthless ruler. He had a vision – To unite the land.
To put an end, once and for all, to war.
It was an idea soaked in the blood of his enemies.
In any war there are heroes on both sides…
