Hero (2002)

Overall, both the action and story of this film was great. I also enjoyed the details in the audio. However, the pace of the movie occasionally felt slow. In the end, I would still highly recommend this movie to those who enjoy martial arts films.

Nameless (Jet Li)

I vaguely remember what happens. But I'll have to wait and see.

Oh, Donnie Yen is Sky. This movie was six years before Ip Man.
The use of water sounds is great.

Broken Sword (Tony Leung Chiu-Wai, center)

"We are both very foolish."

What did she puncture for which she would die so quickly?
