Great to have this lost gem back!
4 October 2002 | by (Vancouver BC) – See all my reviews

Having just seen a new print of this at the 2002 Vancouver international film festival, I must say that it has been hidden away for far too long. A splendid cast delivers a great action flick that simply does not seem 37 years old. If films of this quality had been circulating in recent years, "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" may not have been such a revelation. I am looking forward to many more restored classics from the Shaw brothers archive. A great night at the movies!
