What are people saying?

Although its nothing like your typical Hollywood combat movie, it is so much better: elegant, visually stunning, and awe-inspiring. The mix of martial arts and mortality creates a cinematic dream that will be left in your mind for weeks to come.. Despite the cinematography's central role, the character development does not disappoint, as the lines between good and evil are blurred. A must watch for any foreign film fanatic.

What are critics saying?


Village Voice by Amy Taubin

Crouching Tiger's dramatic line is so blurry that the central character is only a bystander to the climactic fight between forces of good and evil.


Baltimore Sun by Chris Kaltenbach

Rarely has combat been portrayed as beautifully as in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Taiwanese director Ang Lee's thoughtful meditation on menace, mortality and the martial arts.


Slate by David Edelstein

My first viewing left me dazzled but slightly confused; a second deeply impressed; a third rhapsodic. I wish I hadn't needed to rediagram it in my head to turn it into the masterpiece it so obviously wants to be.


Rolling Stone by Peter Travers

Ang Lee, a world-class director working at the top of his elegant form, has done something thrilling. For all the leaping action, it's the film's spirit that soars.


Variety by Todd McCarthy

Brilliance of the action and effects are supplemented by a consistently superior and resourceful score by Tan Dun.
