Watch this if you liked: “Once Upon a Time in China”

The Good, the Bad and the Rising Legend

• A fairly entertaining reboot of the 90s film, "Once Upon a Time in China".

• Though main actor Eddie Peng did a good job in portraying folk hero Wong Fei Hung, it is still a far cry from the Jet Li character in the 90s.

• The choreography for the fighting scenes looks original and realistic, despite the wirework.

Look Out For

• Eddie Peng's sexy body with his manly oiled up pecs and fabulously rippling abs.
