In early 20th century, Master Wong Fei Hung (Jet Li) teaches martial arts at his Po Chi Lam clinic in Guangzhou. One of his disciples Bucktooth So (Chan Kwok Pong) has established a branch in San Francisco to promote kung fu in the West. Together with 13th Aunt (Rosamund Kwan) and disciple Clubfoot Seven (Xiong Xinxin), Wong travels overseas to visit So, but an accident upon their arrival in America culminates in Wong falling down the canyon and losing his memory. Rescued by a Native American tribe, Wong is eventually reunited with his compatriots in a town ruled by a treacherous sheriff who has ties with ruthless Mexican bandits.

황비홍(이연걸 분)과 제자 중 한 명은 중화무술을 해외에 전파하기 위해 캘리포니아에 무도관을 차렸다. 황비홍은 무도관 시찰차 십삼이(관지림 분)와 또 다른 제자 귀각칠(웅흔흔 분)과 동행하여 캘리포니아로 건너간다. 미국에 도착해 무도관을 찾아가는 도중에 십삼이가 불의의 사고를 당하게 되고 그녀를 구하려던 황비홍이 폭포 밑으로 떨어지며 사건은 시작된다.
황비홍은 구사일생으로 인디언 독수리 부족에 의해 구출되지만 기억 상실증에 걸리고 그들과 함께 유목생활을 하며 방랑하게 된다. 한편 십삼이와 일행은 황비홍의 행방을 찾는 도중 중국인을 학대하는 악지적인 미국인 면장을 만난다. 하지만 총을 가진 그에게 저항 할 수 없었다. 그러던 중 독수리 부족과 아파치족 사이에 전쟁이 일어나고 치열한 격전 속에서 황비홍은 잃었던 기억을 되찾게 된다. 동양의 신비로운 무술로 독수리 부족을 도와 아파치족을 퇴치한 황비홍은 독수리 부족의 영웅으로 추대받는다. 전쟁이 끝난 후 황비홍은 일행을 찾기 위해 독수리 부족과 헤어진다. 그런 와중에도 악질적인 면장은 자신의 이익만 챙기고 주민들과 중국인 노동자들의 안전에는 관심도 없다. 마침내 황비홍은 맨손으로 총잡이들에게 다가 가는데...

Professional Review of "Once Upon a Time in China and America (Blu-ray) (Scanavo Full Slip Limited Edition) (Korea Version)"
This professional review refers to Once Upon A Time In China & America
Jet Li and Sammo Hung's first bona fide hit in years, Once Upon a Time in China & America proved handover audiences were still hungry for the further adventures of Wong Fei-hung. In this, the crassest movie ever made, Wong Fei-hung (Jet Li), Aunt 13 (Rosamund Kwan) and Clubfoot (the delightfully lopsided Xiong Xin-xin) materialize in America for the opening of Bucktooth So's Po Chi Lam Clinic, stateside version. It's the late 19th century, and yes, that means they're smack dab in the middle of the Wild West. Heaven help us.
The plot involves Wong Fei-hung getting amnesia and joining up with a Native American tribe who sensitively rename him "Yellow", and are delighted to see that he can kick the stuffing out of tribal enemies. Wong dons Native American garb, but the Native Americans are mostly played by white and Hispanic people pretending to be Native American, and when they get in fights suddenly they're Chinese stuntmen. It's a free-wheeling racial conversation with stereotypes, caricatures, fight-the-power moments, and bad impersonations all existing side-by-side. Wong Fei-hung and company run riot over American history, with Billy the Kid performing good deeds and getting elected mayor, the nation's first Chinatown being established in the middle of the desert, and Native American tribes attacking wagon trains one minute, and cashing checks at the local bank the next. Everything is fair game for mockery, and even the hallowed Quest for Chinese Identity is burlesqued, but Wong Fei-hung manages to keep more of his dignity in native garb than Jackie Chan would the following year in Who Am I?
Production was, by all accounts, total chaos. Shot in Texas, with up to three camera units filming at once, the conditions were grueling. Food was filled with the ever-present sand, it was freezing cold and the plot revolves around falling into a river not once, but multiple times. The strain barely shows, however, and so the series ends in pretty good condition after five sequels, reprising the original lion dance that kicked it all off seven years earlier. Dance finished, superstar Jet Li, actress Rosamund Kwan, and former stunt double Xiong Xin-xin pile into a carriage and ride off. Maybe the series will be mothballed again. Maybe they make it back to a destabilised China, maybe they get lost in the wilderness on the way. But they don't need to ride off into a sunset, because come what may, these heroes will never get old. As long as we need them, they'll be around.

|A strange, playful installment to Jet Li's portrayal of Wong Fei Hong. A delightful encore of highlight fights from the previous movies all in an attempt to have Wong Fei Hong regain his memory, but nothing spectacular in the way of fight choreography considering all who's involved. The stereotyping falls into the amusing just short of eye-rolling disbelief just short of insulting.|

|This installment of the popular Wong Fei Hung series isn't great but at least it is better then the 3rd installment(Once upon a time in China 3).|
