Zhang Yimou’s blockbuster martial arts epic finally hits UK screens – and it’s well worth the wait. In his brutal battle to unite a divided China, the King of Qin must rid himself of three rival assasins – Sky (Yen), Broken Sword (Leung), and Flying Snow (Cheung). To claim the bounty for their deaths, Nameless (Li) must recount his feats in defeating them. Cue colour-coded, labyrinthine flashbacks. Sumptuously shot by Christopher Doyle, HERO is one of the most beautiful films you will ever experience.
