Outside of great action sequences, the weak sequel fails to keep our attention.
Review by Matt CummingsTo say that 2000's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is still a beloved film might be an understatement. The winner of four Oscars and nominated for six more, the film was a worldwide sensation, proving that Kung-Fu wasn't skin deep and that character dramas could exist quite well alongside insanely good action. But that was nearly two decades ago: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny barely warrants our attention, reminding us that sometimes follow-ups are hampered by the original, and other times betrayed by their own motives.
