In ancient China during the Warring States Period, a nameless prefect of a small jurisdiction arrives at the Qin state's capital city to meet the king of Qin. The king has just survived an attempt on his life by three feared assassins (Long Sky, Flying Snow and Broken Sword), and has taken precautions to protect himself, including forbidding visitors to approach closer than 100 paces to his throne. Nameless claims that he had slain the three assassins and he displays their weapons before the king, who is impressed and allows Nameless to sit progressively closer to him and tell him his story.

Hero is one of my favorite movies since I was 7. When it first came out my dad was the one who rented it and I saw it with him. The brilliant acting skills of Jet Li were a great advantage to the movie. The awesome fighting scenes were beyond words. They leave you speechless. I love the use of vibrant colors and how the story is given by having Namless be the one to tell the story. I keep rewatching this movie every once in a while since I was 7. When I was young I just liked how it had so much action and the colors since I would not finish reading the subs fast enough. And I would see it more I would love the movie more and understand better. The music as well is so calming and thrilling and adds to the spectacularness of the film. I couldn't have thought of another ending for this movie it suits it.

1-The reason i watched this : i was randomly going through Tv channels and i accidently found it, at first i wasn't interested then i just couldn't get my eyes off the screen.

2-Storyline/Plot : Totally loved it, i mean there were an unusual story; it's true that it's a historical-action story but it got a lot of twists, feelings of love, hate, betrayel, injustice and many other things that keep you hooked up for the hole time and what i mostly loved about the storyline that it got a lot of versions for the same story; just so creative in my point of view.

3-Acting/Cast : I liked it somehow and of course Jet Li being the lead male is the strength point that made me watch this; i just love his acting even others were cool, not bad i guess.

4-Music : the normal historical music that you find in chinese movies.

5-Rewatch value : I guess it won't be that good to rewatch it since you already know all the important twists that made this movie intresting.

6-The ending : Didn't like it but didn't hate it either, i just kept watching silently without any reaction, i guess i was expecting that kind of end from the moment i started to watch the movie.

7-Overall : A nice movie that deserve to be watched specially if you're action-romance-historical fan. I have no regrets even though it wasn't Jet Li's best movie but like i said it worth watching.
