Kevin Almroth’s review published on Letterboxd:
"Martial arts and music share the same principles. Both wrestle with complex chords and rare melodies."
Despite having some outdated CGI, Hero delivers highly entertaining wuxia and "wire fu" action with gorgeous cinematography and large-scale production. Noteworthy for fans of In the Mood for Love as both films often emphasize the color red while featuring Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung as a couple.
