황비홍 黃飛鴻 Once Upon A Time In China (1991)

1875년, 청조 광서제 시대. 근대화 격동의 물결 속에 청년단의 사범 황비홍(이연걸)은 단순하게 무술만을 익히는 것이 아니라 중국 본토를 지키기 위해 온갖 힘을 기울인다. 중국의 젊은이를 샌프란시스코에 값싼 노동자로 팔아치우고 있는 잭슨 일당의 나쁜 행위를 알아낸 황비홍은 이를 저지하기로 결심한다. 잭슨은 서양인에게 아부하는 중국 건달들을 모아 청년단을 없애버리려 하지만 의지의 청년단을 꺽는 데는 역부족이다. 황비홍은 중국의 젊은이들이 잡혀있는 잭슨의 배에 쳐들어가 악덕 상인과 잭슨의 무리를 상대로 격렬한 싸움을 벌인다.

중국 민청 시대에 지희 태후는 쇠퇴해진 국력을 일으키기 위해 백성들에게 쿵후를 장려한다. 이에 총리 대신 이홍장은 사자왕 대회를 개최, 쿵후의 고수를 뽑기로 한다. 이때 황비홍(이연걸)은 아버지를 돕기 위해 양이모, 양관과 함께 북경으로 온다. 당시의 북경은 폭력이 난무하고 피비린내가 끊이지 않는 음산한 분위기였고 사자왕 대회에 서로 참가하려고 세계의 화관들이 싸움을 벌이고 있었다. 이런 세력중의 하나인 조천패는 사자왕 대회에서 승리하고자 도깨비발이라는 쿵후 고수를 고용한다. 황비홍은 사자왕 대회로 인해 민심이 흉흉해지고 싸움이 난무해 이홍장에게 이 대회를 취소시킬 것을 상소하나 거절당한다. 조천패는 황비홍에게 자기와 합세할 것을 요청했으나 거절당하자 도깨비발을 보내 결투를 하게 한다.

Professional Review of "Once Upon A Time In China Trilogy Box Set DTS (Korean Version)"

April 2, 2008

This professional review refers to Once Upon A Time In China I, II, III (DVD) (Digitally Remastered) (Hong Kong Version)
Jet Li stars as Huang Fei-Hong, a doctor whose knowledge of kung-fu and dedication to the "little people" made him into a folk hero in China. The film takes place during the tumultuous times before the Chinese revolution in 1918, where an influx of foreign powers was beginning to split the Chinese into factions. Some want to embrace the newcomers, while others want to push them away and keep China "pure" -- some just want to make as much money as they can. Huang finds himself caught in the middle between greedy foreigners, corrupt officials and naïve countrymen. As head of the local militia, Huang must decide what side to align himself with in order to keep China safe.

My little plot summary doesn't really do this film justice. It is quite a complex plot and trying to boil it down to a couple of sentences is next to impossible. In fact, the plot is so complex that those people who don't have some knowledge of Chinese history will probably be lost (think how someone watching a film about Paul Revere might feel if they didn't know about US history). But the script is solid enough so that the film doesn't become too complex as to lose the viewer.

At its heart, though, what propels Once are the action sequences. Suffice to say Jet Li has never looked better literally. Of course, his martial arts skills are great and he's convincing as a kung-fu master. The fights in Once, which range from brawls between dozens of people to intense, high-flying one-on-one battles, are expertly choreographed and performed. But, perhaps more importantly, director Tsui Hark, one of the most powerful people in the HK film industry, spared no expense on this film (at least in terms of the Hong Kong film industry, where budgets are miniscule compared to Hollywood's). It simply looks better than most any other HK kung-fu film before or since, even newer special-effects laden movies like The Stormriders. Once's camera and editing techniques in particular are phenomenal and play a vital role in separating this film from others of this kind. Even the burly Kent Cheng (who plays Porky, one of Huang's students) looks like a kung-fu powerhouse in front of Tsui's lens.

The other members of the cast, including Jacky Cheung (as a Chinese/American doctor named So) and Yuen Biao (as Fong, an acrobatic actor who turns against Huang) put in good performances as well. It's a pretty rare occurrence when an ensemble cast could perform within a martial arts movie, but Tsui manages to put a good balance between all the characters, so none of them seem superfluous or unnecessary. Also, it was really nice seeing a romantic subplot in a movie that didn't overpower the scenes around it. The scenes with Huang and Aunt Yee (Kwan) are actually handled with tenderness and care, unlike the hammy melodrama present in most other films.

Once Upon a Time in China is simply one of the best martial arts films ever made. If you haven't seen it, you're missing out on a special treat that showcases some of Tsui Hark and Jet Li's best work.

RATING: 9.25

King of the early 90's Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
This trilogy revive the entire period kung fu genre in the 90's. It was not a easy task but because of the vision of Tsui Hark and the talent of Jet Li it worked. We can even assume that it influence Jackie Chan to produce in 1994 one of his greatess films and also one of the best period/Kung fu film of all time: Drunken master 2. The first film has a solid story and the other two tend to rest more on kung fu action, wich is great !!! This edition has a very good image and bonus but lack the english soundtrack.

Jet Li at his best... Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
This trilogy looks nicely packaged and put together. Unfortunatelly, I found some issues with the dvd quality transfer, as I guess it's expected for films from the early 90's. DVD video quality transfer is overall okay, with the most flaws coming from part I (scratches, burns, etc). The same can be said about the sound/audio from part I, as it's the weakest in terms of effects and transfer (everything sounded FLAT).
Part I has the most fights, but at times, the story is long and drags a little here and there.
Part II is the best of the three, in terms of how it's all put together to be cohesive in story and fights.
Part III is my least favorite one, probably because of the "grand" finale dragon dance. It's soooooooooo long (besides, there are other dragon dances earlier in the movie, thus, I think, it's DRAGON DANCE OVER-KILL!... I've never been a fan of dragon dances that are "mish-mashed" into fights). Story is VERY WEAK too! Also, the Cantonese voice actor for Jet Li is not the same one from part I & II. Found the "new" voice to be all wrong in tone (did not sound "noble" enough).
For action/martial arts fans, this set is nice to have, direct from a HK or China distributor.

THE BEST MOVIE EVER Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This movie is the best of all Jet Li's movies. "ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA" is better any martial arts movies I've ever seen. How part 1&2is different is that part 1 has more action than talking,part 2 has better sound effect and more talking. Number 1 has better music but very little sound effect.

An All Time Classic Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
Once Upon a Time in China has become an absolute classic with some of the best martial arts wire work seen on cinema, and without this film being made the Matrix just would not have happened, and the sequels that it spawned is far superior to the Wachowski brothers efforts. This really is one of the two Jet Li's rare finest moments, the other being Fist of Legend, and if you can ignore some of the poor jokes in it- then you really will find this a classic treat!
