Hero

Hero ★★★★½

I've decided I'm a Maggie Cheung fangirl, and one her great partnerships is with Tony Leung. In this, they play two assassins on the lam in a calligraphy school, and while they weren't exactly the main characters, I appreciate that they had a lot of screen-time.

Also, there are a lot of beautifully filmed fight scenes (my two favorites are Maggie/Zhang Ziyi and Tony/Jet Li, although a lot of people rave about the Jet Li/Donnie Yen rematch), so if that's your thing, you might want to check it out. I just had to ding it half-a-star because the wire work is really out there at times and it sort of took me out of the movie.
