Product Description

Hong Kong wuxia films, or martial arts fantasies, traditionally squeeze poor acting, slapstick humor, and silly story lines between elaborate fight scenes in which characters can literally fly. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon has no shortage of breathtaking battles, but it also has the dramatic soul of a Greek tragedy and the sweep of an epic romance. This is the work of director Ang Lee, who fell in love with movies while watching wuxia films as a youngster and made Crouching Tiger as a tribute to the form. To elevate the genre above its B-movie roots and broaden its appeal, Lee did two important things. First, he assembled an all-star lineup of talent, joining the famous Asian actors Chow Yun-fat and Michelle Yeoh with the striking, charismatic newcomer Zhang Ziyi. Behind the scenes, Lee called upon cinematographer Peter Pau (The Killer, The Bride with White Hair) and legendary fight choreographer Yuen Wo-ping, best known outside Asia for his work on The Matrix. Second, in adapting the story from a Chinese pulp-fiction novel written by Wang Du Lu, Lee focused not on the pursuit of a legendary sword known as "The Green Destiny," but instead on the struggles of his female leads against social obligation. In his hands, the requisite fight scenes become another means of expressing the individual spirits of his characters and their conflicts with society and each other.

The filming required an immense effort from all involved. Chow and Yeoh had to learn to speak Mandarin, which Lee insisted on using instead of Cantonese to achieve a more classic, lyrical feel. The astonishing battles between Jen (Zhang) and Yu Shu Lien (Yeoh) on the rooftops and Jen and Li Mu Bai (Chow) atop the branches of bamboo trees required weeks of excruciating wire and harness work (which in turn required meticulous "digital wire removal"). But the result is a seamless blend of action, romance, and social commentary in a populist film that, like its young star Zhang, soars with balletic grace and dignity. --Eugene Wei

5.0 out of 5 stars Finding Oneself Amidst the Chaos June 15 2006
Format:DVD
Quite the perfect film ... So many elements combine to keep the viewer mesmerized. The exotic scenery of ancient Chinese cultural life hook the imagination. The forces of good and evil battle directly in society and within the souls of the characters. There are underlying esoteric elements which make the story mysterious and provide for surprises and unexpected but deeply satisfying viewing moments from beginning to end. The yin-yang conflicts between various characters provide the romantic see-saw that captures the reader's interest. A highly regarded warrior who defends against evil has reached a point in his life where he relinquishes his famous and feared sword, "The Green Destiny" to discover and explore deeper aspects of himself and life ... At some point, he had gone into a deep meditation and arrived at a place his master had never mentioned nor described. Later, his master had been murdered and the warrior could not ask him to explain this experience. He has a female protaganist who is also a warrior and accepts the solitary nature of this fighter but clearly they share strong emotional bonds. This repressed chemistry promises their paths will continually cross as they explore the depth and meaning of strong feelings throughout the film. She delivers "the Green Destiny" as a gift to the local magistrate/governor of the province for safe keeping. The magistrate has a daughter who is being prepared for an arranged marriage ... to consolidate the interests of two ruling families ... Hidden aspects of the daughter's character provide for unexpected adventure and romance ...

Secretly, the daugher had learned warrior skills and longed to express this independent aspect of herself ... but she lacks the personal understanding of the esoteric nature of this lifestyle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly stylistic Chinese fantasy! March 1 2013
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Crouching Tiger,Hidden Dragon(released July/00),stars,among others Chow Yun-Fat as Li Mu Bai,Michelle Yeoh as Yu Shu Lien,Zhang Ziyi as Jiao Long,Chang Chen as Luo Xiaohu,Cheng Pei-pei as Jade Fox and Sihung Lung as Sir Te.This is the English dubbed version of the film that won four Academy Awards in 2001,and deservedly so.It is a highly artistic,stylized fantasy film and a visual feast,with gorgeous cinematography and intricate choreography.It runs the gamut of emotions throughout from pathos to humour and back again.I thought this year,being director Ang Lee's year once more,with Life of Pi and its bevy of awards,this would be a good time to revisit one of his classic films.
The story finds Yun-Fat as a warrior who has been trying to avenge his masters death for the past 10 years,and has failed to find the culprit.He wants to turn in his famed Green Dragon sword to his friend in Beijing,Sir Te,and start to concentrate on that that he has neglected for far too long;his love for Yeoh.It is a love that has for the most part been an unspoken one.But now and throughout the film,the two start to work together and reconnect.For once the sword is in Beijing it gets taken by a local thief.While Fat makes his way on his own to Beijing to visit his friend who was given the sword,his lady love Yeoh tries,in the meantime,to get the sword back.She in fact has brief skirmishes with the thief which is traced back to the Governor's mansion.She tries to walk a fine line to get the sword back without disgracing the house of the Governor.
One night a policeman and his daughter who have tracked the thief finally confront her.However she has help.We learn the thief is the Governor's daughter and her aide is the thief's governess who is also the killer of Fat's master 10 years before,called the Jade Fox.

5.0 out of 5 stars a favorite March 9 2006
Format:DVD
Brokeback Mountain has nothin' on Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The best Ang Lee film to date; an utter masterpiece and compolation of mesmerizing drama, strong performances, stunning visuals and pictoral poetry. One word to describe Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon? "Grace". A feast for the eyes, the ears, the mind and the heart. Magic. Moving. You will never forget this movie. It leaves an imprint on your soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Mesmerizing March 21 2006
Format:DVD
What strikes me most about this movie is the story behind the majestic cinematography....it is about Ambition, Hidden Love, Destiny, Action, Reaction, Consequence and so much more...the storied layers keep revealing themselves to the viewer in the midst of film scenes and sequences that are completely other worldly...a great film because you leave your immediate world to become a part of this one...

1.0 out of 5 stars Huge disappointment June 10 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Jesus H. Christ. I can't believe this movie was even nominated for Oscar. What a joke!
I'm a big fan of both Chow Yun-Fat and Michelle Yeoh, but COME ON! I've watched almost every movie that Chow Yun Fat was in since "Better Tomorrow" (own lots of them in my video library) and seen many movies of Michelle Yeoh, but this one is a joke. It's just another movie with great actors in it with story line goes nowhere. Movie starts with one crazy%&# woman is killing people and stealing sword and at the end having a sex with a minor character with whom she's not even love with and ends up comitting suicide. That's right. The whole time you'd be sitting in front of your TV saying "So what's going on now?"
This movie is for Chinese martial art freaks who don't know between real and fake, possible and impossible, to pull a few bucks out of their pockets 'cause they all believed childishly in these kinds of crap if they ever really existed in China.
It's a shame for my star Chow Yun Fat played in one of Chinese cheap senseless thing called martial art movie. Point made here is if they could give this movie an Oscar they better make sure to prepare to give next year's Oscars to the same millions of Chinese martial art crap movies!

5.0 out of 5 stars A love story with action and wicked, though meta-physical fight...
It's a bit intense at times but good intense. It's the cinematic/drama coming out as an actual thrilling moving made with a slow budget. Read more
