TAS: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000) Michelle Yeoh vs. Zhang Ziyi


This scene is among the best weapon fights put to film. After a quick tussle in the beginning of the film, Shen and Jen decide to settle their differences with a ferocious swordfight. Michelle uses a multitude of weapons; from broadsword to spear to hooked swords to great effect, and dancer Zhang demonstrates an effortlessness to her sequences. Choreographed by Woo Ping, the movements are precise, intricate, well executed and altogether jaw dropping.
