I highly recommend this film. If you love great drama, superb acting, martial arts films and have an open mind to another culture's own fantasy art forms, you will love this film.

Many who have reviewed this film find the "flying" offensive or out of place. But to Asians this form of fantasy is even commonplace for them. It's as if someone from another culture dismissed science fiction movies as an art form because faster than light speed is probably impossible and will never happen. But from Star Trek to Star Gate to Star Wars, they all have faster than light spaceships. We immediately accept this as a part of the form.

So watch this film a few times with an open mind to THEIR fantasy art forms and enjoy it.

This movie could have been so great and amazing, with superb fight scenes and cinematography - but the unbelievable and cheesy "Flying" and specialty moves (almost mystical) ruins it. The story ends quite adequately as well. This movie was blown up too much and doesn't really top the list as the best martial arts movie.

I thought I was going to love this Ang Lee-directed epic, but turns out it's a highly over-rated and over-long affair, saved only by the incredible action scenes, and by the charisma of leading actors Chow Yun Fat and the beautiful Michelle Yeoh. Zhang Ziyi turns in a less admirable performance. Still, there's a great film buried here somewhere.

A truly beautiful film... Chow Yun Fat is superb as Li Mu Bai (a role originally earmarked for Jet Li, who was suitably epic in "Hero"), and the unrequited love between he and Michelle Yeoh is tender and heartbreaking... the blending of history and myth is superbly done... the fight scenes are simply stunning, and Zhang Zi yi is wonderful as the headstrong youngster... superb...

Crouching Tiger: Hidden Dragon is beautifully made but its way too slow so it can get boring quite easily if you are not a very patient person. In terms of the fighting scenes its not actually that good and you can easily find lots of Asian movies with much better fighting scenes.

"Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" is one of the most beautiful and most fulfilling movie experiences in years. I love many films but I can count with one hand the movies that have the subtlety and beauty of "Crouching Tiger". What Ang Lee has made is beautiful, wonderful cinema. I'll start with the action and flying scenes, they were absolutely breathtaking, subtle and beautifully coreographed, the flying was like watching ballet in the air, so magical and the fight sequences have to be probably the best fight sequences to be put in film, they are so well done and the movie is so deep that through these fight scenes the characters express their feelings, they're done gracefully and without gore at all. The romance of the characters is beautiful, vivid and full of emotions, the affair between Jen and the bandal Lo was such a breath of fresh air, the flashback scene was wonderful, and the undeclared love of Li Mu Bai and Shu Lien was so honorable and pure. The cinematography is wonderful, the forests, waterfalls, lakes, deserts, all look wonderful and so beautiful, this is a visual feast for the eyes. The acting and the characters are amazing, from the wild, independent and ingenue Jen, who is an aristocrat young girl looking for freedom and an exciting life wonderfully portrayed by the beautiful Zhang Ziyi, to the subtle and deeply moving Shu Lien performed by the talented Michelle Yeoh, to the sublime and wise Li Mu Bai played by the terrific Chow-Yun Fat. The story or stories are handled so well, from the theft of the sword, to the love story between the characters, to the master-alumn relationships, to the love-hate relationships, and the revenge plot as well, they're all given the same importance and are wonderfully juggled through scenes. Overall, one of the best films to come in years with the two greatest cinematic moments of the year: The treetop scene and the jump, breathtaking, exhilarating, phylosophical and poetic, with a high touch of magic and inmense beauty, vivid romance and blowing martial arts, "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" is an absolute masterpiece and will be remembered for many years to come.

I first saw this movie at the cinemas and was expecting something like other Hong Kong martial arts movies I’d seen. That is to say I was expecting something good but not great. This movie really impressed me, not just with the fight scenes which were exceptional, but with the story, music, acting and layout in general. This is probably my all round favorite martial arts movie.

watch it for those really cool martial arts moves, not a great movie but more like watching cool clips of action, oriental style, though i must admit the bald guy and the woman are pretty good actors, after going through all that in the movie im pretty sure they are qualified martial arists now, LOL.

Legendary martial artist Li Mu Bai is tracking the murderer of his master. The poised and self-assured Li can handle anything -- except his feelings for lithe, pantherish Yu Shu Lien. Jen Yu, the tremulous and spoiled daughter of the Province's governor, is also fascinated by Shu Lien's glamorous life: that a woman can have so many adventures and such freedom is marvelous to her. Though the refined Jen is soon to be married off into respectability, she harbors a sinister plan. By night she transforms into a masked and cunning thief, out to steal the Green Destiny, an invincible blade once wielded by Li. At the same time, Li embarks on his own quest to recover the missing sword, possibly the key to his master's murder. Great movie!
