Audience Reviews for The Legend of Hero

½

Unfortunately Netflix only had Disc 1 of this, so this review is only of half of the story. This is a condensed version of a TV miniseries giving us a sort of "greatest hits" of The Legend of Hero with only major plot points and fights, and none of the character development. I had seen the movie version of Legend of Hero (starring Ekin Cheng) ages ago, and was hoping this adaptation of the comic would be slightly better. My main complaint was just the format of a condensed series, that you lose a lot of development of the characters and plot so a lot of scenes are rushed and unclear exactly WHY these guys are fighting. The action is top notch though, from the same action director (Ching Siu Tung) of Shaolin Soccer and Hero. This does make me want to see the TV series so at least it accomplished that. The only caution would be the camera work is typical of Chinese TV series and therefore the style is like an American soap opera and may put off some viewers. Worth watching for the story and action but leaves you craving more.
