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 --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

This is a story about the Iron Way protecting the "Green Sword of Destiny" from the evil Hades Dai who has the Dragon Sword. In order to protect the sword the owners hire five fighters or so who have Uma Thurman skills so they can defeat a small army. Some have "light body skill" which I guess is the technical term for wearing a wire that pulls you up into the air. There is a story of an old renewed love and of a young love. There is plenty of fighting, minimal blood, and American style humor.

The film is in English, no dubbing. The plot was Chinese, American style. If you are a martial arts purist, this isn't your film as gravity is a law easily broken. The drama is so-so. The cinematography was good. The main characters were a bit bland, while the minor ones took on personality. Themes of honor and redemption.

Soft 4 stars.

No swearing, sex, or nudity. Woman is nude from back in low light with some minor side breast shadows.

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.

Every time i watch this movie. I get the same interpretation and mine is different. I think that the Green Sword of Destiny is a metaphor destiny in general. Chow yun fat was the only one who had earned the right to wield it. Its fated thst he wants to give up the sword. To "retire" and along comes you guessed it. The only individual who he wants to use it against . Before that happens the sword is stolen by someone who wants an "undeserved" destiny and Chou yun fats charachter dies because of it.
the individual who stole the sword Jumps off a cliff and commits suicide because they habe killed the only instructor that they thing is worthy of teaching them
Is that tragic then I must have the correct interpretation
I wondered why Ang lee never made a sequel.
The real tragedy of life is that life is for the living.

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. The director and actors pulled off a million dollar show. Not your "fight club" kind of movie, there's a beautiful story. And that's all this epic is...storytelling at a 4.5 rating.

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.
