There was a series of books and this is based on one of them... the last one, so it's not like they pulled it out of their asses. Even Ang Lee wanted to make the other books.

I did forget that the original was in Chinese though.Just got used to the story.

The trailer seems to be presenting a film that completely misses the point of the movie - star crossed lovers. Nevermind that Ang Lee wanted to make the ultimate 'kung-fu' movie.

Nevertheless, it's great seeing Michelle Yeoh doing martial arts - though the CG stuff is less than stellar. Does the wire rigging that they used in the first movie cost too much for this film's budget?

Loved the original ...but ONLY in Mandarin. ONLY EVER in Mandarin!! I'll watch this on Netflix when it comes out. Why not? Michelle Yeoh is awesome.

She's awesome. So awesome that she learned to speak Mandarin for her role in the original!

Did it have to be in English? I like my wired-kung fu movies as much as the next fan....but English. And why do I feel like something off with this.

Because something is very off about it.
