Overview
CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON meets GLADIATOR in this violent and visually sumptuous martial arts epic starring ZHANG FENGYI (Chen Kaige's THE EMPEROR AND THE ASSASSIN and FAREWELL, MY CONCUBINE) and MAX MOK (ONCE UPON IN TIME IN CHINA). Separated from his lover Yiu (Rosamund Kwan) and imprisoned for a crime he did not commit, Tong (Zhang) must kill other prisoners to survive. His gladiatorial skills land him in the "Assassination Factory" that turns men into assassins. As Tong carries out his ruthless missions, his position as top assassin is being challenged by his own best friend Wong (Mok), but all he wants is to be free from the world of cold-blooded killings and return to the woman he left behind.

Filled with astonishing visuals, breathtaking sceneries, and stunning martial arts choreography that are at once beautiful and brutal, THE ASSASSIN is a riveting action saga, and a moving tale of a hardened man in search for his soul and his beloved.
