I have the honor of introducing Hero at the Battelle Film Club's showing May 23. I'm also doing a Q&A on movies in general at 7:45. The movies opening this week in theaters aren't all that good. Hero -- on the other hand -- is one of the most beautifully done and beautiful movies I've ever seen. It's Jet Li's best film, and to see it on a big screen is not to be missed.
Me and Jet li all in one night. What's not to love?
