People should give this movie a chance
Hero is the story of a not so nice man that performs an extra-ordinary act of courage. He rescues a crashed plane full of trapped passengers. And after he does, he disappears into the night, never to be seen again—that is until a T.V. station offers 1 million dollars for the man to come forward and identify himself. Someone else takes the credit through a funny series of events that should remain unsaid.
This film is a true treasure. It not only examines fragile human issues like family responsibility, love, our stigmas that we set upon heroes and morality, but it is a damn entertaining movie. It is also a tearjerker. Not many people gave this film a chance but now that it is out on video, check this one out. You will be glad you did.
Hoffman has a style
like all the great ones, Hoffman has a style. Hard to put a finger on but he portrays a life style of take care of yourself and life is not that big a deal. When he’s standing on the bridge and he hears the passengers screaming for help he says “what’s your problem pal”? I mean isn’t that a bit facetious? Pretty obvious they have a problem. Great line. Great writing. This movie is funny, witty with several heart felt moments like when Chic the bartender asks him if he has a kid? When his ex has to admit in times of adversity Bernie Laplanta forgets about his own safety and rises to the occasion or when Gail Galley asks him if he was the one who pulled her out of the plain. I’ve watched this movie so many times I could watch it with the sound turned off and know every line. Got a really good feeling for Geena Davis in this movie. She shows so many different emotions in a really great acting job I forget it’s a movie. Hoffman at his best only in this one he’s better.
