title: Hero function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Miramax Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Jet Li, Tony Leung, Maggie Cheung, Zhang Ziyi, Chen Dao Ming, Donnie Yen film release year: 2002 DVD release year: 2004 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Paul Lingas “Hero” was a long time coming to the United States, and it took Quentin Tarantino’s influence to bring it in its original form. “Hero” was actually nominated for Best Foreign Film at the 2002 Academy Awards, which indicates how long it took to bring it to the States. The first action film from acclaimed director Zhang Yimou, who has given us such notable films as “Red Sorghum” and “Raise the Red Lantern,” “Hero” combines his poetic and often painfully tragic storytelling with incredible action. Shot by British cinematographer Christopher Boyle, it is a lyrical, ravishing, exciting and ultimately heartfelt film.

title: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Chow Yun-Fat, Michelle Yeoh, Zhang Ziyi, Chang Chen, Lung Sihung, Cheng Pei-Pei, Li Fazeng, Gao Xian, Hai Yan, Wang Deming release year: 2000 film rating: Four stars sound/picture: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren When movies seem as unusual and innovative as 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,' there's a real danger of overrating them -- and it happened with this beautiful, well-made period adventure. Some critics, like Joel Siegel, went wildly overboard -- he even called it "One of the greatest movies ever made." Though it is a good movie, it's not that good. Assessments like that probably just embarrassed director Ang Lee.

title: Showdown In Little Tokyo function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();  studio: Warner Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Dolph Lundgren, Brandon Lee, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Tia Carrere release year: 1991 reviewed by: Bill Warren 'Showdown in Little Tokyo' has such modest ambitions that you don't want to rag on it too hard. In its own silly, sadistic way, it's goofily watchable, despite some elements in both production and content that induce the occasional cringe.

title: Supercop function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Dimension Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Jackie Chan, Michelle Khan (Yeoh), Maggie Cheung release year: 1996 reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Jackie Chan does not actually turn to the camera at the beginning of 'Supercop' and say, "Hello, I am here to bring you fun." However, that is clearly his mission, and he accomplishes it, as always with supreme grace, agility and an air of blissful friendliness. 'Supercop' is also known as "Police Story III," with Chan as Kevin, a Hong Kong police officer whose good nature co-exists with extraordinary athletic ability. Here, Kevin is asked to work with mainland China's DEA to entrap a vicious drug lord. Kevin's primary colleague is the formidable Chief of Security Yang (Michelle Khan), who can hold her own in a fight. Their adventures include prison breaks, gun battles and a train-top confrontation that ranks with the best.
