I like a good martial arts movie. One that has a good story to accompany the fighting, and I am a huge fan of Jet Li, so Once upon a time in China had to be on my favourites list.
The first of a series of films based on the life (loosely) of folk hero Wong Fei-hung, it is a romance, a story of martial art schools and a story of the disruption caused by the arrival of Westerners in China. With a little humour and some great choreography, I’ve found myself going back to it many times.
(If you’ve never watched historically set Chinese martial arts films, you really should give them a try. They have considerably more story than their insipid US counterparts, and a lot of them are very funny.)
