YesAsia Editorial Description

Winner of a Hong Kong Film Award for Best Picture, Once Upon a Time in China is a kung-fu epic that's wildly entertaining and historically relevant. It is the late 1800s and China is in turmoil. Western influence is threatening the pride and sovereignty of the Chinese people, who are being enslaved for foreign labor, or becoming addicted to opium. It falls upon Wong Fei Hong (Jet Li), a renowned doctor, healer, patriot, and kung-fu artist to stand up and be counted. Charged with protecting the region with his militia, Fei Hong becomes embroiled in political intrigue and martial arts rivalries as corrupt foreigners and corrupt Chinese attempt to gain control of the region. When a rival martial arts master joins the foreigners, Fei Hong faces his greatest challenge yet. Can he save his true love Yee (Rosamund Kwan), as well as right the wrongs against his beloved land of China?

If one were to compile a list of essential Hong Kong Cinema, they would undoubtedly include director Tsui Hark's Once Upon a Time in China. In addition to being a revelatory work that combined kung-fu action, political allegory, and historical drama, Once Upon a Time in China revitalized the legend of Chinese patriot Wong Fei Hong, and launched a new series of films starring a character that had already been the subject of scores of previous films and television serials. For Western audiences, Once Upon a Time in China also provided martial arts superstar Jet Li with his signature role as Wong Fei Hong, a role that Li would reprise in four more films, including the 1997 blockbuster Once Upon a Time in China and America, which featured Wong Fei Hong in the Old West!

Product Information

중국의 근대화 격동기 1875년. 중국 근대화를 추진하는 양무운동이 일어나고 세계 열강은 중국의 항구에 속속 진출한다. 이로인해 서양문물과 보수적인 동양의 사고방식이 혼란을 거듭하여 격력한 충돌이 발생
한다.
청년단의 무술사범 황비홍은 중국의 국토를 수호함은 물론, 서양의 영토까지 점령하겠다는 야먕을 가지고 서양을 두려워하거나 아첨하지 말 것을 주장한다. 그는 중국의 청년들을 미국에 값싼 노동자로 팔아 넘기는 잭슨의 흉계를 알고 이를 저지하기로 결심한다. 잭슨은 서양을 흠모하는 중국인 깡패들을 모집해 황비홍의 청년단을 쓰러뜨리려 하지만 실패한다. 이에 분개한 황비홍은 잭슨과 그 무리를 상대로 격렬한 싸움을 벌여 승리한다.
하지만 싸움의 과정에서 황비홍은 적에 대항하기 위해서 신무기의 필요성을 절감하고 근대문명의 부분적 수용을 인정한다. 그리고 정의를 수호하려는 서양인과 교류를 촉진하고 발전과 평화를 위해 함께 힘을
모은다.

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.)

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.
