Editorial Reviews

This Good Guy has some Bad Moves... International martial arts sensation, Jet Li, brings razor-sharp action to the screen in this classic Kung Fu tale set in turn-of-the-century Canton! Dr. Wong Fei-Hung (Jet Li), his assistant, Foon, and his beloved aunt arrive in Canton for a medical conference in which Wong is to demonstrate the art of Chinese acupuncture. Unbeknownst to them, however, the city is on the brink of revolution, as pro-democracy rebels and anarchists alike threaten the stabilityof a crumbling dynasty. Justice his only allegiance, Wong joins forces with a brave revolutionary, Sun Yat Sen, when a religious terrorist group - The White Lotus Clan - initiates a campaign of violence against all foreigners in an attempt to preserve Chinese culture!

In my humble opinion, this is the best one of the OUATIC movie series.
Wu Yuan
And you can hardly find a fighting scene as well choreographed as the one between Jet Li and Donnie Yen, both being "real" masters from Shaolin.
Amazon Customer
Everything in this movie is great from the great cinematography to the music to the acting and the incredible fight scenes!

JET LI & DONNIE YEN! (need I say more!)
...actually I could go on-and-on about this movie, but I'll try to stick to the essentials. Personally, I think this one's the best of all the other OUATIC sequels. Yes, they're all excellent films, but what makes this outstand; well it has two of the most gifted martial artists of all time.
I still get goose-bumps everytime I watch the dramatic scene where General Lan (Donnie Yen), is shown in an eerie-evening setting, and demonstrates his amazing skill and grace using a wet cloth-stick. Its an exquisite visual with glowing lanterns hanging everywhere...and then the scene explodes into a fierce and thrilling all-out battle with Wong Fei Hung (Jet Li) using bamboo sticks. (Talk about tension!)
Of course the entire film is done equally impressive; a powerful story about the political turmoils of China. Here, Wong Fei Hung is caught in the choas while visiting Canton for a medical conference. Although the scripts are brief and simple, the story in itself is very dramatic with much credit to the stunning cast performaces. Not to mention, a chilling soundtrack/effects that captivates and brings out the mood of the story. Truly a high-quality film, directed by Tsui Hark, and put it together with the brilliant Yuen Woo-Ping as the action choreographer, well you got one of the best films ever made.

Format: DVD
In the second film in this series, martial arts film legend Jet Li stars as Dr. Wong Fei-Hung, a real life folk hero of 19th century China. Combining solid martial arts action (as you'd expect from a Jet Li movie) with an equally solid storyline which delves into actual historical elements, this movie is a winner all-around, thus justifying the Hong Kong Film Award that it received.
THE STORY:
It is 19th century China and Western influence is growing in China bringing with it both good and bad elements. Dr. Wong Fei-Hung, a noted martial arts instructor and doctor, as well as his countrymen must contend with the expanding influence of the West and its impact on Chinese society. The country is in turmoil. An anti-Western extremist reactionary cult, the White Lotus Society, has arisen with a maniacal following bent on destroying all things Western, including Chinese who have begun to adopt Western ways. It is up to Wong Fei-Hung and his loyal followers, his loving "Aunt" Yee and his student Foon, to stop the ruthless destruction of the White Lotus. In addition, the film delves into history further as Wong and his companions meet and aide Dr. Sun Yat Sen, the famous Chinese revolutionary. There are tons of battles as the White Lotus, The Chinese Government, the British forces and Dr. Sun Yat Sen's revolutionaries all battle against each other, with Wong Fei-Hung and his followers all caught in the middle...
THE COOL STUFF:
If you love martial arts action you've got TONS of it here. The fight scenes are NUMEROUS and ELABORATE as you'll be treated to tons of fighting set in 19th century China is tons of marketplace settings as well as vintage Chinese dwellings and buildings. The sets and costumes are just awesome.

Very,very good movie, on top of that it's a great

martial arts flick. Any Jet-Li fan needs to have

this in their library.

A different reversal of roles, he plays a doctor

who looks like a monk helping people and fighting

occupation over territories in China.

His character Wei-Fong is well layed out, he has

some flaws, but he is great when the time comes.

The martial arts stunts are really top notch,

I can even list all the stunts but the fights

with the White Lotus bunch is outstanding.

Pretty good acting too all around.

This movie is a great continuation of the OUATIC series. It picks up some time later after the first one, with Wong Fei Hung, his asst. Foon, and Aunt 13 travelling to Canton to attend a medical convention. Unfortunately, Canton is in the midst of riots brought on by a nationalist group, the White Lotus, whom take an immediate disliking to Aunt 13 for her western ways.
Great fighting, better than the first. The storyline is also a very interesting continuation from 1; while in 1 we saw the western influence and exploitation seeping into turn of the century China, here we glimpse the other side of the coin, non-exploitative foreigners being persecuted by patriotic groups.
This movie is for anyone interested in Chinese history, Jet Li, martial arts or period pieces. Once Upon a Time in China continues to be quite the epic story.

In my humble opinion, this is the best one of the OUATIC movie series. The movie is not only great for the graceful fightings. It also strongly shows the feeling of the hotblooded patriots to find a way out for China during the time of chaos at the beginning of this century.
The best Kungfu movies never emphasis on violence and this moive is indeed a good example. There are many good fighting scenes which well reflect the characters and are beautifully choreographed. I am especially fond of the fighting scene between Wong Fei Hong and the offical, in which when Wong Fei Hong went to ask the offical to give refuge to the children, the official raided him aggressively and they fighted with staffs. The sentiments from both sides, villainy and righteousness, are poetically presented though their movement. So much better than those meaningless violent fightings.
OUATIC I and II are truely great movies, while the rest of the series, though pleasant to watch, are not as good. The movie shows the best of Jet Li along with fist of legend. Pity he acted in some really lousy movies too, especially some (all) of those he made in Hollywood.
