To say that Oscar-winning director Ang Lee’s martial arts action drama Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was considered a success upon its 2000 release would be something of an understatement.

As we dive deeper into the fall awards season in 2014, more prestige films are suddenly being unveiled.

Directed by Roger Donaldson (Species, Cocktail), it tells the story of a retired CIA man (Brosnan) forced back into action when an important asset (Olga Kurylenko) is threatened.
