Once Upon a Time in China is a 1991 Hong Kong–Chinese martial arts film written and directed by Tsui Hark, starring Jet Li as Chinese martial arts master and folk hero of Cantonese ethnicity, Wong Fei-hung. The film is set in Foshan, China sometime in the late 19th century during the Qing dynasty. Liu Yongfu, the commander of the Black Flag Army, invites Wong Fei-hung on board his ship to watch a lion dance

In addition to the various individual DVD releases, the first three films in the series have been released in a number of collection box sets. On 17 July 2001, Columbia Tri-Star, Sony released the films in the US in a two-disc box set, with the second disc being double-sided, containing Once Upon a Time in China II on one side and Once Upon a Time in China III on the other. As imitation was relatively common in the Hong Kong film industry, Once Upon a Time in China quickly gained mimics.

Another Morriconean trait of this section is its reliance on a melodic figure known as the turn, which involves beginning on a note, rising a step and returning, then falling a step and returning. As for the musical excerpts, there is a great three-volume set of Morricone’s film music arranged for piano called The Best of Ennio Morricone, of which the first volume has the Once Upon a Time in the West themes. Unlike many anthologies, they’re very well done in that they avoid the easy piano temptation and go for a more intermediate level, leaving in just the right notes to make it sound like the film score.

Once Upon a Time in China (1991). Image via Golden Harvest. Director: Tsui Hark Starring: Jet Li, Yuen Biao, Jacky Cheung, Rosamund Kwan Who’s the hero? Fei-hung, a Chinese folk hero who’s a doctor and a kung fu master. What’s his style? It’s Jet Li, so graceful, wire-assisted and supernaturally powerful.

The music score was very nicely done and complemented the film well. At times, the movie evoked as much emotion as the characters themselves. The only problem with this film may be its overly ambitious goals of trying to tackle everything at once. There was the sentiment of saving China from "foreign devils" as well as the sentiment that China was rotting and corrupt at its core, with the Chinese betraying the Chinese. Overall it is a very original film, and is set among the interesting clash of the British and Chinese cultures. Slightly "magical" kung-fu sequences may turn Chan fans off, but otherwise it is mostly engaging. after i watch this, i realize this movie is different from the once upon a time in china that i've seen before. I'm expecting jet li to fight the evil cult and donnie yen. 0. justin89 December 29, 2018 at 10:24 am.
