Post Hero V. House of Flying Daggers

I have watched both of these movies very recently and was wondering which many of you thought was the better movie. Both had their great parts, but I think I'll go with House of Flying Daggers, because it just seemed a lot more believable. Hero had the people able to rebound off of water with their swords which was just a bit too fake for me, that and repelling a whole bunch of arrows.

Both have spectacular stories and both have the beautiful Zhang Ziyi in them. For any who havent seen them I would recommend at least taking a glance at one of them just to see if you like them.

Re: Hero V. House of Flying Daggers

Good debate! I love both of them XD
I'm going to have to say Hero. I loved the way the concept was presented and told - e.g., the way the robe colours changed with each telling. HOFD is still excellent, although it's more a straight martial arts epic.

Re: Hero V. House of Flying Daggers

Yeah that's one thing that Hero had HOFD beat at, was the colors used in it, both were great, but Hero just took it a step further. Now that I think about it I prefer straight martial arts more than all the stuff they do now that makes it just a tad bit over the top. Come on the reflecting off the water with their swords didnt seem a little over the top to you Jaxon?

Actually Diane that movie was Crouching Tiget, Hidden Dragon. Hero has Jet Li in it and he is man who tells the tale of how he took care of those who plotted to kill the emperor.

What can I say, I like far fetched =P
Personally, I think there should be more tree leaping, water dancing and sword running in martial arts movies =D

Re: Hero V. House of Flying Daggers

I like that stuff too and all, but I guess I just wasn't expecting that kind of stuff to happen in Hero as I was watching it. Far fetched is great just felt a little out of place to me I guess.

Re: Hero V. House of Flying Daggers

i have to go with "House Of Flying Daggers" although "Hero" uses colours well i justfeel they are better in HoFD and the fight sequences are also in my opinion better. also i prefer the music in HoFD to that of Hero and also i feel that the story is stronger.
