Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Review by Wraith6
Rating: Imperial Star Destroyer
Martial arts big man Chow Yun Fat, who also played a romantic king in Anna and the King, teams up with Bond cutie Michelle Yeoh (Tomorrow Never Dies) in a old world fantasy about a legendary warrior with an even more legendary sword. He is trying to retire from fighting, but is dragged back in when his sword is stolen by a thief who had stolen from him before and had killed his teacher.
This is a fantastical masterpiece which shows a beautiful side of China that few could have ever imagined existed. And the surprising part is it ends up as a love story worth of a "date movie" that pleases both sexes. It is subtitled, but you barely notice it.
