 Hero Movie Review - MovieWeb
Actually I have still enjoyed quite a few of his American movies, such as the highly stylish Romeo Must Die, but no matter how much I enjoyed them I couldn't bring myself to award any of them a 4-5 star grade.
Despite the name he's not a hero in the Clint Eastwood mold, where he looks tough and fights, he's a person who is doing something he doesn't necessarily agree with but believes it to be the right thing.
Slow motion is used at key points in order to highlight a particularly heroic moment, such as a scene where 2 of the characters join together to deflect the kings arrows.

Movie Plot:Stephen Frears' Hero is a contemporary re-working of a Frank Capra-styled fable about a two-bit criminal named Bernie (Dustin Hoffman) who saves several passengers from a plane crash and leaves the scene without being identified, leaving only a lost shoe for identification.
One of the passengers happens to be news-reporter Gale (Geena Davis) who is intent on finding her savior, and offers a million dollars to the "hero" of the crashed flight.
Hero manages to be quite funny and satirical while sticking to a story that is essentially a Hollywood fable.

Gale turns the absent hero into a media celebrity, offering a million dollar reward to the man who can prove that he is the hero by producing the match to a shoe found in the mud outside the plane.
Bernie, who considers himself "a cash kind of guy" changes his mind about the virtues of anonymity, and he tries to prove he is the real hero and claim his reward, while John begins to feel pangs of guilt over his deception and Gale begins to have feelings for the hero she created.
This fast paced social comedy brings to mind Capra heros from the past such as Longfellow Deeds and John Doe, ordinary men who became overnight media sensations and national heroes.

Easy is an authentic movie hero who is serious about doing the right thing - but only because he's forced into it.
With so many recent movies playing violence as if it were cartoonish and of no consequence, it's refreshing to find that a knife or a gun are true threats in this movie.

John Ritter plays an unsuccessful actor who takes a job posing as comic-book hero Captain Avenger at comics stores and conventions.

 Accidental Hero (Hero) (1992)
    Andy Garcia is very good as the false hero, and the ever-lovely Geena Davis is excellent as the news hound chasing the story of the man who pulled her from the wreckage of the plane.
The only letdown was the lack of shadow detail; there were many times during this movie where I would have liked this aspect to have been better handled though it never really got in the way.
It would seem that we are blessed with a movie not yet available in R1.

 What a Hero! (1992)
Fans of Andy Lau or Maggie Cheung may want to check this out, but "forgettable" would be the best word to describe this movie.
Andy Lau stars as a silly cop who must win a kung-fu competition vs. bastard cop Roy Cheung or the end of the world will occur.
The saving grace of this movie is Maggie Cheung, who manages to be compelling and believable even in total crap.

Definitely, "Night And The City" is not a classic, but it is a funny movie, recommendable for all the fans of the great Robert De Niro that are trying to see the entire Robert De Niro catalogue (like myself).
I am a big Robert DeNiro afficionado so this movie was a big letdown for me. I am sure people are going to vote against this review, but I am being honest here and I don't believe in voting on reveiws.
This movie is violent and has bad language, especially against women and I found those words to be offensive.
