MOVIE REVIEW:Wong Fei Hung
Auhtor:

   

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I'll admit I only watched 15 minutes or so cause I realized if I went
straight to the box office I'd probably get a refund. it's a "goofy"
very low budget movie which, if you're not seeing it for free, should
be viewed from a seat in which you can make a quick getaway for a
refund. You'll have to be a real Jet Li or Hong Kong completest to
stick it out for any length of time, I think.

I saw it on a program of "sergio Leone influences hong Kong" double
feature and the other film from 2006 called "exile" was the HK
submission for the Oscars and it was really excellent.

my 10th line: and they said "hong Kong Odyssey 2002 was "stupid""!! I
enjoyed that movie but this one, no thanks!

oh and I suppose I need to explain at LACMA (LA county museum of art)
in this instance the 2 films on the program had separate admission
charges, the first one (exile) was $5 and such a deal the 2nd, this
one, was 10 bucks and I felt anything else I might spend 10 bucks on,
say, a baja fresh burrito, would be a better use of the money. mmm mm
good!

Jet Li's done some exceptional work in China. I have not been impressed
by anything he did in America. Tsui Hark's 'Wong Fei Hung' has already
been stretched into several sequels of which I have only seen the
first. 'Wong Fei Hung' has all the ingredients to make it an enjoyable
epic movie. There is a story with a heart, some very well crafted
choreography, good acting, and enough action and culture. It's set on a
historical backdrop of a pre-Communist China. The characters are very
well written (with the exception of the non-Chinese who act like
caricature villains). Jet Li, Biao Yuen, Rosamund Kwan, Jacky Cheung
and Kent Cheng all act well. It also presents some taboo elements such
as Wong's affection for his 'aunt' (it was taboo during the time) but
this is all skillfully underused which prevents the film from appearing
too preachy. The film has several layers but it tries to tackle too
many things at once and becomes unnecessarily complicated at some
point. The film slightly drags in the first half and the choreography
of the action scenes without the main cast looked a little shoddy. Yet,
the characters are very likable and the story also offers a lot to
enjoy that I am looking forward to its sequels. In my humble opinion,
it's certainly one of the better martial arts films and has a lot more
substance than pretentious films like 'Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon'.
the only other Tsui Hark film I've seen is the magnificent 'Chat gim'
and I've liked what I've seen so far.

If you've only watch one Eastern, then it's possible you haven't
watched this masterpiece yet. But if you're a fan of Eastern movies,
than it's mandatory to watch this. Wong Fei Hung played by Jet Li,
who's just great, is one of the best known character in the Eastern
cinema!

If you're aware of the Eastern cinema, than you kind of will expect,
what you get here. If not be aware, that the fight scenes might not be
realistic, but that's not the point here. I heard people laugh in the
theater when "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" was shown. Why? Because
people were flying will fighting! If that sounds funny to you, than
this movie might not be right for you. That is if you want an action
movie, that you can enjoy!

I enjoyed it very much (and the sequels that came) and I hope my
description will help you decide, if this is a movie you want to watch! )

A traditional kung fu movie with elements of the Wuxia sub-genre, Once
Upon A Time In China is considered by many to be one of the finest
martial arts movies of all time; I don't rate it so highly, preferring
my action to be a little more realistic and a tad more
'bone-crunching'.

Set in a troubled 19th century China, where centuries of tradition is
being threatened by an influx of foreigners, this historical epic is
directed by Tsui Hark and stars the incredible Jet Li, ably supported
by Rosamund Kwan, Biao Yuen, Jacky Cheung and Kent Cheng. With a
pedigree like that, I was expecting something truly astounding, but
what I got was an overlong, over-stylised and definitely over-rated
film. Saddled with a dreadfully dull story and some particularly poor
comedic moments, it does not entertain as much as I had hoped.

Li plays Wong Fei Hung, martial arts master and all round good guy,
who, along with his students, battles the foreign invaders who are
plundering China. Kwan plays his love interest, Aunt Yee, who has
recently returned from America, and who tries to educate Hung about the
wonders of the Western world. As the troubles mount, Aunt Yee becomes
the target of unscrupulous traders who try to sell her into
prostitution, leaving Hung and his men no option but to pit their
fighting skill against guns in a daring rescue attempt.

Although the movie admittedly features some well choreographed fight
scenes which will undoubtedly appeal to fans of Crouching Tiger, Hidden
Dragon (as will the breath-taking cinematography), the action relies
too much on clever wire-work and skillful editing for its impact, and
the whole affair left this particular viewer rather disappointed.
