    it is NOT a QT film. All he did was produce it, and that doesn't mean anything either, because he had NOTHING to do with the chinese version, his production credits are for the american release only, he had nothing to do with the film other than that.

    edit: scratch that, I was misinformed about the CTHD connection.

  9. Ummm...
    Old news, folks. It came out in Hong Kong in December 2002, which is when I saw it.
    And actually, one of my friends' uncles was the producer. ;)

    i loved it when I saw it about 2 years ago. Great visuals, very aesthetic - excellent movie.
  11. Yeah, I saw some of that version with english subtitles, but decided that I would rather see the english version and spend the night talking, playing LOTR Risk, and answer guy/girl love/dating/attraction questions-with a group of friends that I don't get to see much-most once or twice a year. I had a great night/early morning :cool:

    Oh and I do intend to see the movie :D

    I want to wait to see the Director's cut that can be bought from China. Region free. I personally refuse to support Miramax on this one.

    I saw it. I loved it, it's such a great movie.
  15. In all honesty...
    The cinematography was amazing, but other than that I thought it was actually kind of...well, a little bland to be honest.

    Now Infernal Affairs, that was an excellent film. I hear Leo DiCaprio and Matt Damon are slated to be the leads in the American version, but I don't think that's been confirmed yet. Either way, I can tell you now that the American version will not be nearly as good as the original.

    i was about to say...

    i dont even think he's even a "producer". more like the guy who just happens to love it sooo much, he was able to talk whatever distribution to bring it over to the US. so, i guess "executive producer", which really doesnt mean jack. :smug:

    but all in all, Hero is pretty unreal. literally makes Crouching Tiger look like a small art house film. in this case, well... like an Ang Lee film. :meh:

    Anybody know what kind of instrument is the old man playing during the battle with Sky?
