Description: Legendary martial artist Li Mu Bai is tracking the murderer of his master. The poised and self-assured Li can handle anything -- except his feelings for lithe, pantherish Yu Shu Lien. Jen Yu, the tremulous and spoiled daughter of the Province's governor, is also fascinated by Shu Lien's glamorous life: that a woman can have so many adventures and such freedom is marvelous to her. Though the refined Jen is soon to be married off into respectability, she harbors a sinister plan. By night she transforms into a masked and cunning thief, out to steal the Green Destiny, an invincible blade once wielded by Li. At the same time, Li embarks on his own quest to recover the missing sword, possibly the key to his master's murder.
This movie came out in the US several years ago and was really popular. An American-Chinese-Hong Kong-Taiwanese co-production. The actors/actresses did an outstanding job in their characters. The special effects and fight scenes are phenomenal. This is an amazing movie. The Storyline is interesting, definitely a good/evil side to the characters, I was fascinated by the story, keeps you interested til the very end. It won 4 Academy Awards for Cinematography, Art Direction, Original Score and Foreign Language Film in 2001. I highly recommend it.
