Hidden Dragon: Legend NEW!
As the inhabitants of the House of Te mourn the loss of their dearest companions, Snow Vase explains her connection to Wei Fang's past. His birth mother was the legendary swordswoman Han Mei. However, as a baby, he was swapped for the infant Snow Vase by her mother, a concubine. Han Mei raised Snow Vase as her own daughter, but never stopped looking for her son. Eventually finding him at West Lotus, she was mortally wounded by Hades Dai and, as she died, implored Snow Vase to find Wei Fang.
Hidden Dragon: Legend
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 2 is the tale of "one 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."
Lee's films all deal with what is below the surface. He's interested in people who have to hide their true selves or their true feelings. That's true in The Wedding Banquet, which is about a gay man getting into a marriage of convenience to please his parents. It's true in Brokeback Mountain, in which the men in question are drawn to each other despite wishing they weren't. It's true of Hulk, who has always been a metaphor for hidden anger. Sometimes these emotions are hidden because of family or class considerations.
Lee says in his films that nothing can remain secret forever, and you can only repress emotions for so long. They always emerge eventually. Every character in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon has hidden feelings or secrets, and they all wind up being harmful. Li Mu Bai and Yu Shu Lien go years without acknowledging their feelings. Jen Yu hides her abilities from Jade Fox and yearns to find a way to be true to herself.
Just as the description reads, the hidden dragon perk can be used on any unsuspecting enemy when attacking from above. It can be a bit confusing to implement, however, because there is on-screen indicator or prompt that lets you know when you can use it. Instead, you have to position yourself over an enemy, whether it's on top of a beam, railing, crate, etc.., and while their back is turned and they aren't alerted to your presence, jump directly on top them (on head or shoulders) and the attack will initiate on its own.
The plot, which is lost in the first half-hour, revolves around the only returning actor from the previous film, Michelle Yeoh, on true autopilot mode as Yu Shu Lien. Here she guards the legendary sword still, protecting it from those who would seek its power. She entrusts it to, and trains Snow Vase (Natasha Liu Bordizzo), who strikes a fickle romantic rapport with Tiefang, a tricky thief she captures and conveniently cages in the courtyard where she trains. 041b061a72
