Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Stars ìììì

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon—
a highly sculpted, cultural filmeasily earns its four-star rating. A 'not-to-be-missed' movie, it captivates international markets, dominates box office sales, and wins four Academy Awards. The story takes its audience through the angst of unfulfilled love, the passion of fulfilled love, the bitterness of ill-used power, and the betrayal of friendshipall against outstanding Asian scenery.
