Not only is the finally-about-to-be-released Hero famous director Zhang Yimou's first attempt at martial arts, it also stars: Jet Li, Maggie Cheung, Tony Leung, and Zhang Ziyi. It's a who's who of Chinese cinema.

What would be a comparable lineup of U.S. directors and actors?

Anyway, I'm looking forward to it. Especially because however much I love Chow Yun Fat, he just isn't a martial artist. It'll be good to see a beautifully coreographed and shot martial arts epic starring people who know martial arts... (Though, does Tony Leung actually know any martial arts? I can't remember seeing him ever doing it before...)
