Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

Soar like an eagle, strike like a scorpion.

The warriors at the heart of Ang Lee’s tale of honor and redemption are not held back by the laws of nature, instead flying through the air, bouncing between trees, trading hot steel with each other.

A supremely-beautiful film in every aspect, it weaves tragic love stories, bold action sequences, and deep philosophical moments together, creating a memorable tapestry.

Vital to Tiger’s success is the wire work choreographed by legendary Yuen Woo-ping, which creates a mesmerizing, otherworldly experience.

Many films have copied it, but few have any hope of matching it.
