Will probably feel the wrath of many people for this one, but I rented Hero last night and was VERY disappointed considering its rave reviews. I think that it just tried too hard, and was very 'showy'. It looked too much like a colouring book with all that tacky colour and it just seemed to be a series of set-pieces strung together. Too much slo-mo and wind blowing in peoples' hair. Characters standing in the middle of nowhere wearing nice costumes - does this make a film stylish? I think every character in the film had a single tear run down their face at some point or other. I saw Zatiochi recently and it was far far superior. Any thoughts/anyone agree?
