Wo hu cang long

Ang Lee China, 2000

Yeng Hang's rating of the film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

This film is pure story. It never takes a break to give you some action. The action sequences are actually acting scenes! How they fight reveals who they are: the methodical calm of Li Mu Bai, the wild hubris of Jen Wu, the clumsy missteps of Bo. A grand masterwork unequaled in wuxia.
