The Lady Hermit

Cheng Pei Pei is great in the excellent swordfighting movie about a master in hiding who takes on a young apprentice with the hope that she'll help defeat her arch enemy. It's beautifully shot and has a nice love triangle sub-plot to appease girly Crouching Tiger fans. The martial arts are not the greatest ever filmed, but it more than makes up for it in gore and crazy miniature effects. Temple of Doom owes much to this movie's rope bridge scene.
