ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA 2
WONG FEI HUNG II: NAM YEE TUNG CHI KEUNG
1992, Golden Harvest, 113 min, Hong Kong, Dir: Tsui Hark

Jet Li returns as Cantonese folk hero Wong Fei-hung in this second installment in one of the greatest martial arts series of all time. The year is 1895, and turmoil is flaring up throughout the countryside. As western colonizing powers force unfair treaties upon the nation, underground revolutionaries like the White Lotus Cult respond with extreme xenophobic violence. It’s up to Wong to protect the innocents caught in the midst of this violence and to restore order and balance to his country…through a series of increasingly mind-blowing martial arts acrobatics.
