      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Paling in comparison to its predecessor in every conceivable way, Sword of Destiny is a lazy sequel that never justifies its own cynical existence.

      Phil T Loved the film, the sword fight on the ice was divine. A film full of passion. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/14/24 Full Review Jedi D Great choreography and wire work, outstanding cast, and visually beautiful, but missing all the romance and character development of the original film. If it had been a kung fu film made with the spirit of anime and not a sequel to a masterpiece, it would have been better received. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/19/23 Full Review Madeline V Okay, just lacks the action and choreography that the first film is known for. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/10/23 Full Review Dan S It's a lot better than the reviews say it is, if you enjoyed the first one you will enjoy this one. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 08/18/23 Full Review Minh N The magic that Ang Le made with the original story written by Jin Yong, a Hongkonger novelist, is gone with the sequel. Too much fighting and not much storytelling, it's so boring. The impressive cast could not save the movie. With Ang Le's original, I am glued to the screen but not this one. It became ridiculous with all the fighting scenes. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 06/18/23 Full Review Greg M This film holds absolutely zero percent of the magic and storytelling of the original. It reduces all that was great about the first film into a laughable pile of canned kung-fu Sunday afternoon special BS that we all remember as being too awful to watch. Now, this is a more modern effort, looks better than old kung-fu tv, and the fighting is clearly choreographed better. But that doesn't help a whole lot. It still lingers in the shadow of a masterpiece it can't live up to. And ultimately delivers just another punch up brawl that is virtually too cliche to even bother discussing. I don't recommend it if you like the original. But if you don't care and just want to watch a kung-fu brawl, then this will probably fit the bitt well enough.

      Roxana Hadadi Chesapeake Family Magazine The Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sequel Sword of Destiny isn't as thoughtful as its predecessor, but its fight sequences will hold your attention. Rated: 2.5/5 Aug 2, 2016 Full Review Grady Hendrix Film Comment Magazine By the climax, the action has been reduced to interminable sequences of people banging their swords together and occasionally being ejaculated into the air like digital snowflakes. Mar 17, 2016 Full Review Tasha Robinson The Verge Sword Of Destiny suffers endlessly by comparison to Ang Lee's groundbreaking 2000 film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, for the comparative smallness of its vision, its visuals, and its budget. Mar 2, 2016 Full Review Dominic Griffin Spectrum Culture It's said Zhang Ziyi didn't want to come back for the sequel unless Ang Lee returned as well. We can see why. Rated: 2/5 Jul 17, 2019 Full Review Andrew Daley One Room With A View We're all here really to see if Sword Of Destiny was worth the decade-plus wait. It totally was. Rated: 4/5 Apr 10, 2019 Full Review Emmet Asher-Perrin Tor.com Directed by Yuen Woo-ping (who choreographed the fights for the first film), Sword of Destiny feels westernized in every sense of the word.
