Crouching what? Hidden who?

Thus far, Netflix has made good decisions overall regarding the kinds of movies and series that they produce, so when the streaming service announced that they would be making a sequel to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, I was a bit puzzled, but I figured Netflix knew what they were doing. Now that I see this trailer, I’m not so sure. First off, this looks like any number of cheap, generic, modern martial arts movies, and forgoes the memorable wire-fu of the original film in favour of bargain bin CGI. But even worse is the soundtrack – a vocoder version of Creedance Clearwater Revival’s¬†Bad Moon Rising? Who thought¬†that was a good idea? This looks terrible! Thinking about it, though…I do get this free with my Netflix subscription, so there’s still a chance I’ll watch it. Maybe Netflix do know what they’re doing after all.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny comes out February 26, 2016.
