Back in 2003 Ang Lee was nigh invincible: after directing several critically acclaimed sleepers, he broke out internationally with Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The tragic incomprehensible mess that was The Hulk knocked his career so hard it took two years and a movie about gay cowboys to get it back on track. And he hasn’t done an action movie since.
The trailer was exceptionally well done, as all trailers usually are, taking a steaming pile of schlock and presenting it as filet mignon. Do they give Academy Awards for trailers?
