    Once Upon a Time in China starring Jet Li as China's legendary folk hero, Wong Fei Hung. One of the modern classics, pitting kung fu against the seemingly unbeatable Western power of the gun. A great mix of history, martial arts, tragedy and comedy, which includes the big ladder fight the terrible Musketeer copied wholesale (speaking of the West stealing China's stuff). Tsui Hark's direction is very artful, which makes the picture quality on the DVD all the more criminal. Grainy, soft and frequently marred by digital artifacts. 2 years 5 months ago
