About the Movie
Named "Best Picture of the Year" by over 100 critics nationwide! Two master warriors (Chow Yun Fat and Michelle Yeoh) are faced with their greatest challenge when the treasured Green Destiny sword is stolen. A young aristocrat (Zhang Ziyi) prepares for an arranged marriage, but soon reveals her superior fighting talents and her deeply romantic past. As each warrior battles for justice, they come face to face with their worst enemy - and the inescapable, enduring power of love. Set against 19th-century China's breathtaking landscape, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is the action-packed, box office smash from acclaimed director Ang Lee (Sense and Sensibility, The Ice Storm) featuring stunning martial arts choreography by Yuen Wo Ping (The Matrix).

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Chow reveals astonishing depths. But the revelation is Yeoh.
Fresh: High art meets high spirits in a rapturously romantic epic that really kicks butt.
Fresh: Crouching Tiger doesn't so much break new ground as reconfigure the genre with the pomp and ceremony of Western production values and psychological nuance.
Fresh: A near-masterpiece, replete with marvelously fanciful images and a touching love story.
I'm so glad this is the Subtitled version of one of the greatest (maybe the greatest) Martial arts movies of all time.
To tell you the truth.... I hate martial arts movies... but my brother made me sit down and watch it and I fell in love with this one! It's not one of those fake, cheezy action movies that you end up laughing at. It actually has alot of action and has a good story line. So if you don't like martial arts movies... don't judge this movie by its cover... you should actually watch it.
Can be judged by how much it is copied and replecated, and this movie has set the standard for modern martial arts films. A wonderful experience to watch.
