Import Blu-ray/Region A pressing. 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 Hung (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 Hung 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 Hung 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 Hung, 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 Hung, 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 Hung in the Old West!
