Wong Fei Hung (Jet Li) is a legendary Kung Fu master, waging a one man war against criminals and corruption in the Boxer Society of turn-of-the-century China. He unknowingly opens a martial arts school right next to a notorious brothel, only to come across a kidnapping plot. Much fighting ensues.
In Last Hero in China, Jet Li reprises the role of Wong Fei-hung, a legendary figure in China. Both a doctor and a teacher of martial arts, Wong has just moved his school in Canton, only to discover that the neighbouring house is a brothel. Though Wong's students are delighted and the earnest brothel master only wants to study with him, Wong feels he has lost face. But this becomes the least of his troubles: soon he's fighting a corrupt police chief, a temple of slave-trading monks and a deafness-causing medicine sold to children--and that's just in the first hour. Last Hero in China is a grand melodrama, featuring exaggerated heroes and villains, goofy humour and hyperbolic kung fu action. The plot takes some hard-to-follow turns, but the action is so non-stop it hardly matters. The lion vs centipede dance/fight has to be seen to be believed, to say nothing of the priest with a floating lotus chariot and a flying claw. Jet Li is in fine form, Gordon Liu (as the venal top cop) is maniacal and despicable, and the lovely Cheung Man plays an expert martial artist looking for her kidnapped sister. The character of Wong Fei-hung also appears in the Once Upon a Time in China series (where he was first played by Li) and in Jackie Chan's Drunken Master movies. --Bret Fetzer, Amazon.com

Li plays the hero brilliantly and is ably assisted by an great cast all whom play their part with tongue very much in cheek. From the ladies of the brothel to the wonderful end fight Last Hero in China is a well made film with humor wonderfully mixed with the straight laced Wong Fei Hung.
Something about Jet Li being defeated by an irritating, constantly cackling pantomime style villain, a flying lampshade that snatches women with a metal claw, for some purpose which escaped me, lots of wire work and impossible leaps,a silly sidekick with goofy teeth and a whole rack of gums and humour which, I must admit, did make me laugh at some points along the way.
Good job it was only a few pence, so I don't feel that I've wasted my money. And why was the trailer on the disc dubbed into English, but not the feature?
I like Jet Li, (hence the 3 stars) but this was a struggle.
Yes, the film the film is full of melodramatic twists and turns, ridiculously heroic good guys and villains, some typical humour and yes …. The inevitable kung fu fighting (heck it might not be kung fu, they all look much the same to me but you get the idea.)
The plot is, well how can I put this, somewhat convoluted and unbelievable but there’s lots of action, which of course is exactly what you expect from this genre of movie. The lion versus the centipede fight (or is it a dance?) really has to be seen to be believed.
The film also stars Gordon Liu as a dodgy policeman and Cheung Man as a martial arts master. If you like this genre you won’t go too far wrong with this film.
