Chicago Sun-Times
Transcends its origins and becomes one of a kind. It's glorious, unashamed escapism and surprisingly touching at the same time.
Entertainment Weekly
Soaring and romantic, wild and serene, feminist and gutsy, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is one of the best movies of the year.
Rolling Stone
Ang Lee, a world-class director working at the top of his elegant form, has done something thrilling. For all the leaping action, it's the film's spirit that soars.
San Francisco Chronicle
The class act of action movies.
USA Today
This is a great movie, but it needs a sales job because it's in Mandarin.
Boston Globe
Watching it is a nonstop high.
Philadelphia Inquirer
It is with gravity and levity and incomparable grace that Ang Lee's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon -- by light years the best movie of 2000.
New York Daily News
Handsome, passionate and fun. It's everything we go to the movies for.
Chicago Tribune
Splendid, soaringly ambitious Chinese period fantasy.
New York Post
You have never seen a movie like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon because there has never been a movie like it.
Baltimore Sun
Rarely has combat been portrayed as beautifully as in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Taiwanese director Ang Lee's thoughtful meditation on menace, mortality and the martial arts.
Crouching Tiger's blend of the magical, the mythical and the romantic fills a need in us we might not even realize we had.
