Starring Jet Li, Tony Leung, Maggie Cheung, Zhang Ziyi, Donnie Yen

Set before China was a unified country, a nameless hero is granted an audience with the emperor after defeating the three most dangerous assassins in the land. The emperor demands to hear Nameless’ story of how he managed the feat, and as the hero tells his story, we, like the emperor, begin to suspect hidden motives. Time has dulled some of the film’s technical marvels, but not its ambition, scale, and beauty. It’s a sweeping tale of mythmaking and nationalism.
