Oh, what a difference expectations make. Hero's Blood is a terrible Kung Fu movie, largely because there's very little Kung Fu in it (there's a little wrestling and some sword fighting). Really, it's a Chinese Historical Drama (and not a great one), but there's not a big market in the U.S. for CHDs, so it gets marketed as a Kung Fu movie -- the DVD even has a bonus "Art of Kung Fu Biography" (a short, written history of Kung Fu that scrolls quickly over a picture of Bruce Lee).
And so... it's a perfect Cinema 2.0 movie. I'll be sitting in with the cast again this month as we attempt to make (non)sense of this sprawling mess of a movie. Saturday, Midnight, at the Lake Shore Theater.
