What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is the multiple Oscar-winning movie from 2000 directed by Ang Lee. Unsurprisingly, this movie features martial-arts violence and battles. Most of these battles are bloodless, but one character is killed when a blade is hurtled into his forehead. Major characters are killed, and one death could be interpreted as suicide. Although the women are treated with complete equality and are equal to or superior to the men in judgment and combat, one female character expresses bitterness that she was not permitted to train as a warrior. A female lead character is called a "little whore." In one scene, sex is strongly implied between two characters, although there is no nudity. In another scene, a woman's nipples are exposed through her wet shirt.
