Overview

Synopsis

The New Legend of Shaolin
This Hong Kong martial arts film that is chock full of colorful, nonstop action starring superstar Jet Li. Hong Xiguan learned kung fu at a Shaolin temple. He joins rebels to try to usurp the oppressive rulers. Unfortunately, a fellow student squeals upon him and Hong's family is slain, except for his son whom he trains. The duo live with Ma, a wealthy, but idiotic fellow who wants to learn kung fu. He also accepts poor Red Bean, into his home as a slave. Red Bean is ostensibly trying to earn enough money to bury her dead mother. But her mother isn't really dead. It is only part of a scam. Red Bean herself is an excellent martial artist and when not sparring, she and Hong become mutually attracted. They join forces, along with her mother and his son to defend the Shaolin temple from invaders. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Once Upon a Time in China
Though generally unknown to Western audiences, Tsui Hark is considered a giant among Asian filmmakers and this exceptional epic, combining hard-hitting martial-arts action with romance, comedy, history, genuine poignance, and sharp insight into the effects of the century-long encroachment of Western civilization in Asia more than amply demonstrates why. The story centers on the exploits of Master Wong Fei-hung (a familiar figure in Hong Kong cinema) a 19th-century doctor, Confucian, and exceptional martial artist. As the film begins, he has just opened a new clinic in Canton Province. To help him with patients, he hires a few apprentices including Porky Lang (the comic relief) and Buck Teeth Sol, who was raised outside China and barely can speak the language. Wong is platonically involved with the lovely, worldly Aunt Yee, who has been abroad most of her life. Wong soon gets in trouble when he begins using his skills to protect and assist the poor and helpless in his community. As a result, someone torches his clinic, forcing Wong and his compadres to set off and get spectacularly staged revenge. They also try vainly to stop Western culture from changing traditional Chinese ways, but they soon find that they may as well be shoveling sand against a rising tide. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

The Medallion
Though it's an English-language film, the fantasy action comedy The Medallion is one of the highest-budgeted movies to come out of Hong Kong. Cop Eddie Yang (Jackie Chan) and his partner, Interpol agent Arthur Watson (Lee Evans), are in pursuit of international human-smuggling crimelord Snakehead (Julian Sands). The partners get seriously wounded and a mysterious ancient medallion transforms them into superpowered warriors called Highbinders. The two halves of the medallion are supposed to grant eternal life when joined together by a powerful young boy who was born during a specific time in the Year of the Snake. The villainous Snakehead wants to gets his hands on both the child and the medallion, and the heros try to stop him. Aided by special effects and action choreography by Sammo Hung, Chan fights his way toward a violent conclusion with Snakehead that takes place in mid-air.. Claire Forlani plays Jackie Chan's love interest, the Interpol agent Nicole. Also starring John Rhys-Davies as Commander Hammerstock-Smythe. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
