Another masterpiece from Ang Lee

Ang Lee has given us 'Sense and Sensibility,' 'The Ice Storm,' and 'Brokeback Mountain.' 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' is his greatest achievement. Juggling romance, martial arts, period drama and high-flying stunts, it is an all-around remarkable entertainment.

Not a believable moment in the whole film

From the opening moments of people falling off rooftops to Wahlberg's conversation with a plant, there is not a moment to be believed. It seems to be an environmentalist statement, yet none of the characters was worth caring about. Ranks as one of the oddest "serious dramas" ever, and sadly, one of the worst.

Fun Action Movie

Michael Bay isn't known as a great director, but sometimes he delivers with a fun action movie. This is his best since 'The Rock' (1996). [Followed by 2 sequels in 2009 and 2011]

Familiar biopic is well-acted

The story of John Lennon coming of age in Liverpool and discovering a love of music, while dealing with unusual family issues. Aaron Johnson (from 'Kick-Ass') makes an amiable young Lennon. Period detail is fun to look at and the music is good.

James Franco shines in true story

Aaron Ralston (Franco) is an adventurous type who becomes trapped by a boulder in Utah, and realizes his own vulnerabilities. Superbly told using unique visual techniques that make a claustrophobic setting interesting. James Franco holds viewers captivated with a strong performance.
