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.
