Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon brought this genre to the masses in the USA, and for a good reason. Hero has more style and better presentation. These movies are just about even when it comes to story and action. My edge goes to Hero.
Definitely Crouching Tiger.
Hero is the masterpiece here.
Slight edge to Crouching Tiger...the women had the much cooler fight scenes.
I found Crouching Tiger's story to be much more engrossing, its characters to be much more believable, and its action to be much more impressive. Hero looked prettier, but that's about it.
Ahh, it's cute that some people prefer Hero (or even liked it). I'm usually all for personal preference, subjectivity in art and entitlement to opinions but sometimes you just gotta notch up the condescension and slam down some black & white. Pffft I say, pffft.
I love both films, from thier plots to thier action scenes. But I like Hero more if only because it deals with a concept I love; what defines a hero?. Crouching Tiger may have the better fight scenes, but Hero has one of my favorite plots ever.
Love CTHD. Not that into Hero. CT is romantic, it's got wonderful choreography, but above everything else, it's got Chow Yun-Fat. Hero's choreography doesn't compare, which is a shame because I'm usually a fan of the choreographer's work. And I'm REALLY not into the message it sends. And I've seen Zhang Yimou do better.
Hero, easily better, though CTHD was great when it came out i watched it recently and it has not aged well. The fighting is great and all but the young chick who happens to have the most screen time is too unsympathetic and then when she is given a chance to change she kills herself and wastes the time of the other leads. Hero's story is so much more relevant and does more to better you as a person and i also like it's use of mise-en-scene so much more
Hero betters you as a person?
I'm all on board with Hero
"Hero betters you as a person?" Yeah, wut?
You mean you guys didn't start volunteering at soup kitchens immediately after you finished watching it? Weird...
