Went and saw ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon‘ last night. I can understand why people didn’t like it, but I thought it was good. Great visuals in both background location and movements during many of the fight and action scenes. Kudos to Ang Lee for keeping the movie in it’s original language. The sub-titles did take a little bit away from the movie, but mismatched lip movement would have detracted much more.
If you can handle the slow progression and enjoy the visual and acting performances, check it out. If you even doubt you will enjoy it, you might want to wait for video.
Also watched ‘Almost Famous‘ on Friday night. Good movie. Recommended.
