What ???

We just watched one of the worst movie we have ever seen. It caught us by total surprise. Here is the box take:

Master filmmaker Quentin Tarantino presents (a key word, I guess) HERO - starring martial arts legend Jet Li in a visually stunning martial arts epic where a fearless warrior rises up to defy an empire and unite a nation! With supernatural skill ... And no fear ... A nameless soldier embarks on a mission of revenge against a fearsome army that massacred his his people. Now, to achieve the justice he seeks, he must take on the empire's most ruthless assassins and reach the enemy he has sworn to defeat. (here is the scary part) Acclaimed by critics and honored with numerous awards, HERO was nominated for both an Oscar and Golden Globe !

This was one of the slowest, dumbest, most boring movies I have ever had the extreme displeasure to watch. Tarantino needs to lay off the ganja when importing movies. (standing corrected)

Just because a movie is all in subtitles does not give it class. The entire movie was in Chinese. If I wanted to read a movie, I would have rented a book.

Then there was the flying, deflecting arrows with the sashes, running and fighting on the surface of a lake, and the 'leaf' fight. Puh-leeeease. Artsy does not make it a good movie.

After the movie was over, we jazzed up the night by watching paint dry.
