  1. This was a good movie. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is one of the best martial arts movies I’ve ever seen because the story, characters, direction, action scenes, and cinematography were all amazing so it definitely deserved to win the academy award for best foreign language film as well as best cinematography. Ang Lee was the perfect guy to direct this film and Chow Yun-fat, Michelle Yeoh, Zhang Ziyi were perfect for their roles as the main protagonists. Tan Dun deserved his academy award for best original score because he did a good job composing the amazing film score for this movie. Yo-Yo Ma did a good job with the amazing cello solos for the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon film score. And it’s also worth noting that Tan Dun composed the film score for the Zhang Yimou film Hero that starred Jet Li. I would definitely recommend Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Hero to Wuxia film fans and martial arts film fans. And I would also recommend fans of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Hero to check out both of the film scores by Tan Dun so they can appreciate the musical pieces and musical tracks some more.

  2. It is not a Kung Fu flick unless it has the following: fight in a bamboo forest, destruction of a restaurant, betrayal, redemption, love, loss, and heartbreak.
    This flick has it in spades.
    Be safe and be 😎

  3. Chow Yun Fat said, during the filming of this flick, some tried + failed to seduce him, + it WAS NOT Michelle.
    Zhang has had many scandals over the years.
    She has a sweet face, which fools/ed many people, but she is anything but sweet.

  4. Both Michelle + Chow were FANTASTIC in this magnum opus.
    Chow never had any Martial Arts training.
    They had to learn Mandarin Chinese for their roles + they both said it felt like they were learning Shakespearean English.

  5. During this film, Michelle tore her knee ligament. She underwent surgery + many weeks of recovery.
    In the Li Mu Bai's death scene, Michelle's leg was in a brace, so it had to be propped up.
    After Michelle's poignant + heartbreaking performance(she was also in physical pain), Director Lee was so
    overwhelmed, that he wept privately for 15mins.

  6. For me, when I first saw the film with my wife, the ending left tears in my eyes. Twenty+ years late, it still does the same to me. Zhang ZiYi saying, "make a wish Lo", and he tells her that it would be back in the desert, together again. And like the old myth of the young man who floats down the mountain, pure in heart, gets his wish to come true, Jen/Zhang Ziyi, floats off the railing and flies into the mist. As the movie ends, a part of me always wished she made it to the bottom of the mountain safely and got her wish to come true. But the sadness on Lo's face tells the truth. She will not return except in Celestial Heaven. What a fantastic movie. Well done.
