Filmfest 2009

HERO (ACCIDENTAL HERO, UK TITLE) Frears already has demonstrated the wonders he can accomplish with an ensemble cast, and the performances he gets here, both from his three stars and the oddball collection of supporting players, are blissfully playful and loose... It's cagey, funny and vivaciously smart. It may also be one of the worldliest fairy tales ever made, and that rarest of all things, a family film with real meat on its bones. Hal Hinson, Washington Post, 10-2-1992
