Wonderful film about a man down-on-his-luck who witnesses an amazing airline crash and ends up rescuing every passenger on that flight. Thinking nothing of this, he goes back about his own business until somebody else takes credit for this wonderful feat attracting huge attention from the media as a hero and a saint thus becoming rich. Well, that isnít nice! There are several notable flaws, but Hero succeeds in giving the audience a reality-check that the media may not always be reporting truth. I enjoyed it!
