Popcorn Culture - Throwback Tuesday: Hero

A true crossover hit, Zhang Yimou's Hero has all the makings of a wuxia classic: stunning sequences, opulent settings and big names. With stars like Jet Li, Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung at the helm, and Rashomon among its influences, Hero set the tone for Chinese cinema in its time. We look back to see if this grand tale holds up almost 20 years on.
