anticipates the genre to hold its staple. However, in Hero, it just finds the exemplary idea of heroism and the ideal easy-going lifestyle vanishing into the sentiment, the emotionless fight duels, and adjustment to an untested and unproven harmony. Hero gives a novel tool for addressing and reflecting East Asian culture, and simultaneously, it encapsulates the quandary of limits forced on traditional writings when crossing between cultures. The essential discourse framed by a paired development of East versus West isn't decisively reasonable in Hero, because this is movie is targeting a global audience. While this discourse started with the nature of East Asian heroism and its dichotomy, it ends this by revisiting the new outlook of movie ecology and recorded points of interest in a cross-cultural examination. Certainly, the expression "cross-cultural" itself infers a genuine or envisioned limit via which critics ought to discuss their positions with different practices and notions. Through the notion of movie ecology, a new phase of cross-cultural examination can be realized. A phase in which Western hypothesis might take a far-reaching perspective in considering the traditional and historic particularity of East Asia, East Asian movie producers, and East Asian audience ( Sundararajan, 2015) . A methodology that will empower researchers to better comprehend different societies as well as their own.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
