Product description

Product Description

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.

From Amazon.co.uk

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

An okay watch but the chicken fight shown on the cover is pure silliness. Not a classic by any means.

This film demonstrates fantastic martial arts skills and has a quite good story line. The synopsis says he has to fight for his honour and this doesn't become apparent in the final battle. He fights alone, the cover of the dvd may give the impression he fights in an army. The cause for the final battle isn't as heroic as the synopsis claims. The film has english subtitles which in my opinion can often be frustrating but creates a more realistic martial feel to the film. This is good fun to watch although it isn't Jet Li's best film. That in my opinion has to be Twin Warriors with Michelle Yeoh. Good but not brilliant, should be bought at a cheap price. SN

As always Jet Li displays a tremendous amount of grace and precision in all his fantastic martial arts fight sequences. Although the action is mainly traditional and he is dressed in a bird outfit at one point - the film still delivers an awesome closing fight scene. There are various styles of fighting, bird, centipede and shaolin - but the film is worth watching alone for the finale. Reminiscent of the old chinese movies / styles this film is very enjoyable and comical at times.

Jet Li brings all his skills to bear in this highly entertaining finale of the Wong Fei Hung series of films. if you suspend belief in Li dressed as a chicken fighting a plastic centipede and just enjoy the ride of what is a very under-rated Jet Li movie.
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.

I'd have enjoyed this more if I could have read the subtitles which were mostly white text on a white back ground and whizzed off the screen as quickly as they appeared.

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.

Jet Li reprises his role as Wong Fei Hong, who is a legendary teacher of martial arts. Upon relocating his school he finds the neighbouring premises are a brothel and this pleases the students and the brothel master who wants to study martial arts under Wong Fei-Hong. Hong’s troubles have only just begun though and in true martial arts movie mode he soon ends up battling corrupt policemen, slave traders and a the suppliers of a medicine which causes deafness.

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.

I have to say that if you like Jet Li you'll love this, the Jet Li collection DVD is in very good quality and the subtitles are easy to read. This is part of the Once upon a time in China series which is mostly great and this is kind of like a spin off to that series. I really enjoyed this film, the story involves a corrupt evil goverment who keep woman hostage and sell them as prostitutes, Wong Fei-hung and his Kung fu protégés take on this goverment, Hung is originally defeated by people dressed as a centipede when he loses his hearing but he later recovers it. In the end he defeats the main villain dressed as a chicken, this happens because earlier in the film he sees chickens killing a centipede, despite the silliness of it, the end fight is very entertaining as Hung gets drunk and fights the villain. Overall I found the film to have a perfect blend of humour and seriousness and it really worked on the whole, this film deserves nicer reviews, hats off to Jet and the rest of the crew, good film!
