    More concentrated and svelte than its precursor, Once Upon a Time II also has the benefit of fights staged by Master Yuen Wo-Ping that show Jet Li -- another camera-age hero -- to even greater advantage.

    I still think the first is the best in the series, but I'm in the minority: Number two has a stronger following among the legions of Hong Kong movie buffs.

    Far better than the first installment. The replacement of foon has been a huge improvement in my opinion. The story is also well elaborated. I guess the occurrences depicted in this movie might have been incidents of great historical importance to china. The fights, OMG, is frikking AWESOME. Jet Li at his best. So fast, like lightning. The scenes are well directed. Brings out the thrill tenfold. More people should watch this, seriously. Expand
