Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon the second fight between these two. Very technical fight. Slightly better than a couple of the fights in Fist of Legend. Woo-Ping Yuen is the king of choreography.

I love how she finally beats Zhang by using the superiority of Green Destiny against her. It's almost poetic seeing as in most traditional martial arts they talk about the notion of using your opponent's strength against him instead of opposing it. After struggling to beat the sword Yeoh uses the Green Destiny's superiority against its own wielder by taking advantage of her own sword being cut by it to slip to Zhang's throat.

Definitely agree. I mean altogether Michelle's character had 3 opportunities to kill her but forgoes it to try to teach her a something.

Cooler than any European swordfight I've ever seen. I like it because of it has lightning speed, not just the power behind the heavily armoured knights.

+Le Batteur Most interesting... Thank you

Neither. Neither form is superior or inferior and they should not be compared. All they are is technically different. They were designed with different types of weapons against different types of armour in different environments for fighting. There is no comparison to make.

OKAY!!!!!  You may have a superior weapon, little girl, but, YOU are not worthy.

0:32 Michelle only lost because she was being too lenient with Zhang's character. The fight should've ended here. And the results wouldn't have been pretty. :S

Amazing fight scene.  I can only imagine the hard work Woo-Ping, Yeoh and Zhang put into this scene.  Splendid scene.
Great scene, I wonder how many hours of choreography was put into making this scene. Amazing, it is time for another similar movie, tale, or adventure...Cant wait!!!
0:32 if the character Michelle was playing was trying to win the fight the girl would have lost half her arm right there.
