Two master warriors (Chow Yun Fat and Michelle Yeoh) are faced with their greatest challenge when the treasured Green Destiny sword is stolen. A young aristocrat (Zhang Ziyi) prepares for an arranged marriage, but soon reveals her superior fighting talents and her deeply romantic past. As each warrior battles for justice, they come face to face with their worst enemy — and the inescapable, enduring power of love. Set against 19th-century China’s breathtaking landscape, CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON is the action-packed, box office smash from acclaimed director Ang Lee. Just as Michelle Yeoh is receiving some of the highest accolades of her career with the Oscar-bound EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE, this stone cold classic returns to theaters nationwide for another fresh look.
“The 4K restoration looks pristine. It not only highlights the film’s groundbreaking wire-fu martial arts sequences and stunning vistas, but the movie star performances from Yun-fat, Ziyi and especially Yeoh as well. Any Yeoh fans, whether multiverse-inspired or longtime appreciators, should check out Lee’s masterwork on the big screen.” —Logan Butts, Nashville Scene “The picture is more fun than it has a right to be.” —Elvis Mitchell, New York Times (Oct 9, 2000) “Magnificently nonchalant about its magic…. Lee has made more than an exotic yarn. He has liberated conventional moviemaking.” —Desson Howe, Washington Post (Dec 22, 2000) “There's so much dreamy beauty in CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON that it's almost like a narcotic.” —Stephanie Zacharek, Salon “CROUCHING TIGER is contemplative, and it kicks ass. Or put it this way: it's a powerful film and a terrific movie.” —Richard Corliss, TIME
