The Best 2000 Action Film

 My Rating: 8/10
Legendary martial artist Li Mu Bai (Chow Yun Fat) tracking the murderer of his master. The poised and self-assured Li can handle anything — except his feelings for lithe, pantherish Yu Shu Lien (Michelle Yeoh). Jen Yu (Zhang Ziyi) 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. (source)

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is a Wu Xia film. Wu Xia evolved out of popular Chinese fiction, mythical beasts, honorable warriors and powerful swords. I am not a fan of Chinese films, except for Jackie Chan’s movies, but this one is different. It strikes me like no other Chinese movies did.

When I watched this movie, I was totally captivated by its precise choreography. The martial arts are excellent and the actors played their characters perfectly. The cinematography was fantastic and the special effects were beautifully done. I also love the romance between Jen (Zhang Ziyi) and Lo (Chang Chen). Everything is stunning! Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is the most exciting and the best action film of 2000.
