2004/10/11 10:51:00 - There were Heros on both sides...
On Thursday </a></b></a>emperor and </a></b></a>antinomy and I went to see Hero. This is a film in the Chinese "Wuxia" tradition, like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, although it features less implausible "Mystic Wudang Flying"-style feats in favour of implausibly fast swordplay.
The film is mainly shown as a set of flashback sequences during the discussion between two of the main characters and is notable (in my mind) for the use of colour during these sequences.
It was a good film, and lots of fun.
Current Mood: okay
I liked it too. Not sure about the lake fight, but the rest of them were amazing.
Inspiration for Exalted, anyone? I reckon that most of the implausible stuff done there (apart from the walking / jumping on water) is the top end of what you can do with a Stunt. And the army looks pretty like a Legion to me.
