Zhang Ziyi has been a leading martial arts star for over a decade, and in her latest, Wong Kar-Wai's The Grandmaster, Zhang gives her stongest performance yet. After breaking onto the scene in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Zhang has steadily starred in a string of epic kung fu tales, including Zhang Yimou's Hero and House of Flying Daggers. Even when she's not flying through the air with a sword or kicking multiple men at the same time, she rules the screen with just about everything she does. Here is the proof, in GIF form.

In Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Zhang proves that she can hold her own with a much more experienced kung fu master.

Just throw that sword sheath casually to the side, NBD.

This girl likes her swords sharp.

In Hero, she takes on Jet Li. When this much fierce comes at you, you best get out the way.

Multiple attackers are no match for Zhang.

In Rush Hour 2, Zhang knows martial arts and how to shoot a gun. Be afraid, be very afraid.

Even when she gets stabbed, she makes it look kind of cute.

Zhang's beauty is mesmerizing, especially in black and white.

She's even beautiful when she's somber and saying some really depressing stuff.

House of Flying Daggers showcases Zhang's dance skills in a gorgeous brothel.

But that doesn't mean she doesn't also have amazing kung fu skills.


Via

Even though she plays a blind woman, Zhang can still fend off bad guys while balancing between two bamboo trees.


Via

Sometimes she can be pretty tricky with her assassinations.


Via

In Memoirs of a Geisha, she has one fierce head-turn.

Here she is fighting in The Grandmaster, in which she is a total, utter badass.
