Hero (2002) – Imprint Asia #5

Jet Li stars in this modern wuxia classic, a visual spectacular and historical epic set in Ancient China from legendary director Zhang Yimou. 

Limited Edition 2-Disc Hardbox featuring both the Theatrical and Extended Director’s Cuts, plus extensive special features.

With supernatural skill, a nameless soldier embarks on a mission of revenge against the fearsome army that massacred 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. 

Released to worldwide critical acclaim and becoming the first Chinese-language film to top the US box office, Hero was nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. 

Also starring Tony Leung Chiu-wai (Chungking Express), Maggie Cheung (Chinese Box) and Zhang Ziyi (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), the film was ‘presented by’ Quentin Tarantino, who campaigned for its US English-subtitled release.

1500 copies only.
