A bad moon rises in the Netflix trailer for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 2

12.07.2015

It's been 15 years since Ang Lee's CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON swept up audiences, and now Netflix is returning to that world with CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON: SWORD OF DESTINY. This film, directed by acclaimed action choreographer Yuen Wo-Ping, tells an epic story of lost love, young love, a legendary sword and one last opportunity at redemption, set against breathtaking action in an epic martial arts battle between good and evil that will decide the fate of the Martial World. Get a taste of the action with the trailer below!

I suppose we can chalk this up with the sequel that may deliver too little too late, but I'm always down for some kung-fu action, even if the story doesn't quite deliver. This trailer doesn't really give us much in the way of drama, so maybe Yeoh and Yen have some goods to show off in that arena. If not . . . well, it's cool to see Jason Scott Lee getting some work!

CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON: SWORD OF DESTINY will hit Netflix and select IMAX theaters on February 26, 2016.

This looks absolutely nothing like Crouching Tiger, but it could still be a fun Michelle Yeoh / Donnie Yen actioner. I seriously question the use of English dialogue, though.

Yuen Wo-Ping + Donnie Yen + Michelle Yeoh = I'm so there!

Yuen Wo-Ping is probably the best martial arts choreographer in the business, and a really good director (IRON MONKEy). If nothing else, the fight scenes will kick serious ass.

Yuen Wo-Ping is probably the best martial arts choreographer in the business 10-15 years ago.

In your opinion, maybe. Even if he's no longer #1, he's still in the Top 5.

I'll watch any movie he choreographs. SNUFF BOTTLE CONNECTION, SNAKE IN THE EAGLE'S SHADOW, DRUNKEN MASTER, MAGNIFICENT BUTCHER, LEGEND OF A FIGHTER, ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA and IRON MONKEY are all fucking classics.

Bad trailer...

Apparently whoever made this didn't even watch the first movie, cause it feels way off. The music, bad CG and english dialog should stay far away from anything to do with Crouching Tiger.

I'm looking forward to the sequel, but there's two things that bother me: it looks like it's in english (I loved that the original was in mandarin), and some not very good CG action scenes (I don't think the original had any CG characters or action scenes).
