3.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for Beggar So...none for Wong Fei Hung December 10, 2001
Format:DVD
This another portrayal off wong fei hung righting wrongs in his home town, and now he has a partner Beggar So(Donnie Yen) to help him.Let me just say that Donnie Yen is magnificent in this movie and all his fight scenes are great to watch.I place him up there with the magnificent four alongside Bruce Lee,Jet Li,and Jackie Chan.He's just so fast and I've never seen anyone kick as fluent and consistent as he does.The film...well, the plot is the usual Wong Fei Hung trying to rid of foreign opium traders and opium all together while a corrupt official tries to prevent that...Beggar So gets thrown in the middle and becomes an addict himself by the official, who wants to use Beggar So to kill Wong...plan fails, So gives up opium, and he join sides with wong..the movie's best fight scenes are only the ones with Donnie Yen...The actor playing Wong is kind of weak...not only that, but this movie gave a really bad portrayal of Wong...First off, Wong does't kill women regardles of whether they're bad(he killed 2)...Second, he doesn't look to kill willingly...In this movie, it seems like if someone needed to revenge his/her masters death against some official, Wong says, "No prob...Don't worry"...huh?...historically, Wong is not this kind of person...and lastly, no one ever takes Wong's fights...although i was glad Donnie came in to interfere and fight the last guy, the real Wong doesnt allow that...stick with Jet for Wong Fei Hung portrayals...nonetheless, Donnie was great as usual, but what kept this far from 5 stars were the inconsistency of Wong, some bad acting, and a lot of nonsense moments...there tend to be fights for no reason at all...also, theres a really ugly and annoying bucktooth girl plus some guy with a mohawk haircut...

3.0 out of 5 stars Really A Four Star Movie, But... July 23, 2004
Format:DVD
I bought this movie without ever having seen it which is always risky. I am not disappointed. It is not the greatest ever but definitely worth seeing, especially for fans of Donnie Yen. A simple, yet good story and fairly realistic fighting, aside from the giant leaps around the room or one man holding a table top above his head while two men fight on it, will keep your interest.

Donnie Yen stars as the over confident and somewhat naive young man who thinks he can do no wrong. He goes through his ups and downs and learns an important life lesson: DON'T GET HOOKED ON OPIUM! His kung fu is still full of flare and power as he takes on everyone he meets and actually shows a bit of acting range. There are some great match-ups for fight scenes, it just needed a couple more fights overall to make this one of the best. He still throws a better kick than anyone, and you can't argue with that! Maybe you can, but it will fall on deaf ears. I'm not listening!

As for the DVD itself, the picture is good and sharp and is widescreen. The audio is done well and the sound is clear. The dubbing is average, no better or worse than most movies made around this time.

This movie really deserves four stars but the comedy relief by the woman who plays his aunt is terrible! It really takes away from the otherwise highly entertaining film. Just try to ignore it. You don't watch these films for superior acting, but for the kung fu wizardary, and this one will not let you down.

4.0 out of 5 stars More Yuen Woo-Ping June 4, 2000
By BJ
Format:VHS Tape
This is more of the same from the master Yuen,and is a movie that goes by his movie making guidlines which is throw together a mess of a movie and have some great fights in between,but hey I love most of these, and with Donnie Yen at the lead it's well worth checking out with Donnie Yen pulling off more amazing tricks like only Yuen can make him do.The fights are all pretty good,but nothing classic except for maybe the last fight with the bad guy played by xiong xin-xin (club foot from ounce upon a time in china) where Donnie Yen uses his own version of the drunken style which looks amazing.It's too bad Yuen can't make every movie as good as Tai-Chi Master,Fire Dragon,or Iron Monkey,but alot of his silly "throw together a bunch of good fights movies" can still blow most anything else out of the water, even with a good story because no one can top his choreography.So if you like Donnie Yen and don't mind sitting through some silliness then definitley pick this one up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definately "5"! February 2, 2001
By Seal
Format:DVD
Heroes Among Heroes seems somewhat of a secret sequel to the Once Upon a Time series; it contains the same motives, almost all of the same exact characters who even looked very similar to the actors. However, you'll notice the difference with Yuen Woo Ping's touch of amazing visuals, classic humor and great action.
In this film, Donnie Yen plays Beggar So, a rich, righteous, and rebellious son who prefers hanging out with the beggars. The conflict centers around the contraversal use of Opium, and eventually, Beggar So runs into heated conflicts with the villagers, gangs, government and drugs. The best action scenes are towards the end (watch Donnie Yen's very cool "drunken style" very unique, he is so graceful and super fast).
I got a kick out of this movie, it goes on top with my other favorites like Iron Monkey. Good quality fighting. Good acting. Lots of action and comedy. Just try not to think too much of OUATIC, instead... keep your eyes on Donnie Yen...it worked for me!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fist of The Red Dragon
This movie appeared to be o.k. A lot of action. Story's seemed to be confusing. Donnie Yen has recently become a rising kung-fu star. I enjoy his movies. It's fun and entertaining.
