Shadow ★★★★

Yin as the uncanny shadow under Yang

Obviously there's a lot of yin/yang symbolism here, and while I'm not really the one to unpack it, I can say that Jing learning a feminine fighting style from a Princess (Yin is traditionally characterized as feminine) in order to defeat the masculine Commander Yang is definitely some structural metaphor I can get down with

Oh and yeah it's all ridiculously beautiful
