Hero cover art question.

On the DVD cover of Hero you see Jet Li holding a sword.
On the back of the case, you see him holding a different sword. The one pictured on the back of the case is the one I remember seeing him use throughout the movie.

In which scene did he use the sword he is holding on the front of the case?

MiramAxe has one of the best teams that produce horrific DVD cover art, especially with art that has nothing to do with the movie, or altering faces/heads/arms for no apparent reason.

Given their history, it's a relief that MiramAxe didn't chop the film or make it a dub only. Although the Hero cover is not the most desirable, it's still way better than the crappy Infernal Affairs.

That's pretty lame for them to do that.
There's so many awesome poses/stances Jet Li performs throughout the movie and they have to come up with a fake one for their DVD cover.

I thought MiramAxe (as several of you are calling it ) did a decent job with the Iron Monkey cover.
