Ekin Cheng is a terrible actor! This garbage is worse than Storm Riders. Overall, it lacks any kind of soul.

This movie is quite problematic for me. On the plus side Shu Qi is in it, the Shadow character is very cool, the martial arts scenes are pretty good as the stroy but the story is not without its faults. The producers should have hired a historian to get somethings right with the timeline but I'll end my comment here.

Pitkästä aikaa tuli katsottua ja tykkään tästä edelleen. Sarjakuvamainen kuvaus sopii aiheeseen ja trikitkin toimivat minun mielestä edelleen. Ekin Chengistä voidaan olla monta mieltä, mutta kyllä hän tästä ihan suoriutui, vaikka hän ei tahdo päästä irti Namin roolista.

On s'attendra lors des premiers moments a une fresque impressionante, pour finalement ne recevoir que des miettes realisees piteusement et des effets numeriques lamentables, sans imagination et sans saveur.

A good follow up to Andy Lau's Storm Riders. Once again, great special effects and great story.

Good actors, bad special effects, poor direction, bad transitions, no conclusion, and dangling plot threads a plenty. Very disappointing.

I sought this out after watching Storm Riders, but was ultimately disappointed with it. I was unimpressed with the plot, and, while there were a few good action sequences, in the end it didn't meet my expectations.

A man called Hero, un film d'action qui s'avere etre une vraie bombe truffee d'effets speciaux et rudement bien realise. A man called Hero est marque par un visuel fort tant par le soin apporte aux decors qu'au travail de post-production. C'est aussi un film melant Kung Fu, Wu Xia Pian et armes a feux parfaitement integres dans un scenario qui soutient un bon niveau d'action et d'aventure. Un film a visionner et que tout fan du genre doit posseder.

awful trully rubbish, a real dissapointment if your expecting a martial art's movie, CGI boredom.

Very tragic film, I remember being deeply affected by the sacrifice, tragedy, and sorrow of this movie. However, the action sequences suck. Trust me, if you think the fighting sequences are cool here, you clearly underestimate what Hong Kong cinema can offer. Anyway, the characters are great, and the story is truly heartfelt. Just ignore the action, it's cheesy, sloppy, and just bad.
