A must-see movie for all Jet Li fans Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
The first half of "Once Upon a Time in China" practically bursts at the seams with its extraordinarily complex story, a story that represents the complicated times that it depicts. The film is freighted with the conflicting cross-currents of a China being torn apart by German, British, and French colonizers, as well as an American presence and the Mongol Qing rulers in Beijing, of Jesuit proselytizers, of a criminal gang vying with local police for control and influence, of the martial arts school of nationalist hero Wong Fei Hung, and of a new wuxia master in town who seeks to unseat Wong Fei Hung. Add to the mix time spent on the development of a host of different characters and the whole thing threatens to become too dizzingly complex until director Tsui Hark shifts gears in the second half and focusses on a series of eye-popping action set pieces in which good guys Jet Li (as Wong Fei Hung), Yuen Biao, and Kent Cheng take on a host of baddies in order to save damsel-in-distress Rosamund Kwan, quash the criminal gang, and resist the evil foreigners. It's all a bit messy, but utterly irresistible, as its 135 minute running length flies by. Very highly recommended. (Note: I watched a version of the movie distributed by Columbia TriStar that had the original Cantonese dialogue and English subtitles.)

not enough of great character Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
this movie wouldve been a master piece if the fight choreographers wouldve gave yuen biao a proper fighting role, biao wouldve outclassed jet li but when biao got a chance to shine, the fights were to quick. pitty because the film lacks great fights

Why, This! Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Why this movie has to deal with foreigns that try to speak English? That's just wonder me. I think that this movie was alright for me, even though this was in the early 90s'. But what I am concern is that why this movie has to be more about Jet Li and Rosamund Kwan than his students or his Po Chi Lam. Man, this movie needs more action, not about more love.

yuen biao should have got more screen time Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
before filming biao got promised the movie was mainly about hes character, how wrong that was.
jet li was doubled throughout the movie, biao was given a limited chance to show what he can really do kung fu wise, and the fights werent up to scratch, not a classic in my opinion, yuen biao should have got more time, he wouldve outclassed jet li blow for blow if he had done.
