3.0 out of 5 stars
Good without being excellent, 21 Jan. 2008
I had high expectations for this soundtrack I love the movie and I really wanted to like the music. It contains some good music but overall it is too patchy. It's as if the composer ran out of ideas midway through the project. The last two tracks are okay but totally out of place on a Chinese movie soundtrack. The 'Couching tiger, hidden dragon' soundtrack while not great contains much stronger material. Viewed as a movie soundstrack with some Chinese inspiration, it's okay. However, as a showcase of good Chinese music, it falls far short of the mark.
