Hero: something that's not anime-fu or Chan-fu

Just to have something else to talk about in this forum.

I've been seeing the trailers for this, and three things immediately come to mind.

1) Jet Li in an American kung-fu movie that isn't going to suck donkey nuts. After having seen Fist of Legend on multiple occasions, I couldn't wait for Li to stop being hideously abused by hollywood (in terms of bad sci-fi and truly horrendous gangster movies).

2) Quentin Tarantino has truly crossed over to the realm of unhybridized action movies, and I don't think he's going back.

3) that movie looks awesome overall. Fuckin' A.

It does look quite interesting. I'm surprised it got a PG-13 rating considering it's a Tarantino film.

I thought that was Wheeled Warriors.On topic:
So Namelessv1 and squakMix
were right -- according to IMDB, this is a recent piece of Hong Kong Cinema. As I said, these were just my first impressions after seeing the trailer.

Still, I think this one would be worth going to see. It's the most expensive film ever to come out of China, and the director is apparently renowned for making thought-provoking films.

it was slow and boring. artful but boring. trying to pull the crouching tiger but i dont think it was a successful attempt at a chinese style american martial arts movie. nice costumes and the chicks are hot. i dont get the ending.

My dad saw it, he likes alot of movies. Unfortuately, he hates this one.

Alex Jones: Do you want the puppet on the right or the puppet on the left? What a bunch of garbage; liberal democrat, conservative, republican. It's all there to control you! Two sides of the same coin. Two management teams bidding for control, the CEO job of Slavery, Incorporated! The truth is out there in front of you, but they lay out this buffet of lies. I'm sick of it, and I'm not going to take a bite out of it, do you got me?
