Once Upon a Time in China

Martial arts superstar Jet Li stars as true-life legend Wong Fei-Hung. This smash hit from 1991 is one of the most copied kung fu films of the modern era. In it, Li stars as the late 19th-century hero who is called upon to fight off evil Western forces plundering China's riches. The imaginative setpieces (including the legendary ladder fight) are worth the price of admission. This one spawned a surprising five (!) sequels. In Cantonese with English subtitles. 134 minutes
