Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon Review


Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was a fantastic film directed by Ang Lee.  The film was very entertaining from beginning to the end.  After viewing many of King Hu films, it made me appreciated Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon a lot more.  I realized where Ang Lee got his inspiration from when making Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.  This film was greatly influenced by King Hu, from jumping off buildings to buildings, fighting in a bamboo forest, and having characters fight in an inn which were the styles from his films.  If King Hu had wiring for his characters in the scenes of the high jumps, his film would have been more realistic.  King Hu films were ahead of its time in creating a motion picture capturing the kung fu technique of fighting.  Overall Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was a great film to watch.  Watching this film would give the audience a good idea of how this film evolved from a King Hu film.
