Watched Hero DVD.

It's askin' too much fer realistic action scenes in a martial arts movie, but two scenes, th' lake scene an' th' scene with th' leaves struck me as o'er-th'-top. Much more interestin' an' excitin' were th' scenes at th' chess house an' match as well as th' whole "red" caligraphy story line. Fire the cannons, shiver me timbers Colour were bein' used effectively t' differentiate betwixt story lines (director Zhang Yimou has always used colour t' his advantage in his movies), an' th' scenery were bein' absolutely beautiful.
