Movies reviewed this week: Once Upon a Time in China II and Once Upon a Time in China III.
11/25/2021: Once Upon a Time in China II (1992): ****
The phantasmagorical invasion of the consulate, horses and all, is stunning.
11/28/2021: Once Upon a Time in China III (1992): ***
Still visually stunning — I mean, the Beijing locations! But I’d rather watch a climax with Jet Li going one-on-one with an equal than the lion dance themed climax here, cool as it was.
