This is an amazing movie. I thought it beat out Crouching Tiger in terms of visuals. Just a beautiful movie in that respect.

Not sure that the fighting choreography was as impressive, but meh, still good.

This has been out on video for a while so you can check it out now if you care to.

umm.. i did a review .. awhile ago.. this movie was quite stupendous.. it was here

it was pretty damn kickass, and yeah it wasn't as good fighting as crouching tiger... but how can you compete?

My bad

I guess I missed out on that train.
Sorry y'all.
Maybe it is being rereleased, as it was on . . .

Let me make up for my ignorance with these little ditties:

hero was released in most asian countries in 2002 where it received wide acclaim ...

If you go to a good video store (suspect, queen video in toronto), or just about any chinese video store (which you can find in a lot smaller cities than Toronto) they will have this movie...

It is NOW being released in North America because it has Jet Li, it's KICKASS, and it has a theme that will be widely understood and accepted by North American audiences...

nszyngie - this stuff happens all the time, i think that we'll see the amazing Ong - Bak ( ) released widely in North America next... which me and miguel should really do a review for...

While Hollywood remakes remakes... and dredges just about every comic book title for something somewhat original to turn into a movie.. Asiain cinema is producing real good quality movies that simply rape the competition... i highly HIGHLY suggest you rent the following.. found in most video stores (blockbuster, rogers)

It's called VERSUS and it is AMAZING... check it out.. you won't regret it...

nszyngie don't worry about not knowing about this movie.

It's coming out in theatres this summer, and that's where I'm going to see it. I will go with you if you're interested.

First time I'd heard of it was at the preview for Kill Bill 2. I was there with Miguel, and he told me that it was awesome, as he's a movie buff and had already seen it.

However, if you're not a big movie buff, or don't know of any cool alternative video places, you'll have to stick to the more mainstream movies.

Which really aren't that bad. In fact, they're good.
