I am still waiting to see Zhang Yimou's "Hero", but unfortunately I live in US It originally came out in 2002 and it has basically come out in every corner of the world except in US (even on home video). It is so sad Miramax controls this movie and so many more and just butcher them. I was so excited in 2002 waiting for the movie to come out. By the time it really will finally be released here it will probably feel like an old washed-out movie on one of the tv channels. I am wondering what the marketing logic is here?
