Last Hero In China

Jet Li as Wong Fei Hung, reprising a role from "Once Upon a Time in China". This is the same character Jackie Chan plays in "Drunken Master 2", and yes, Jet Li does a version of "Drunken Boxing".
The action is fast and furious and wire enhanced..
The humor is misogynist and slapstick and nearly unwatchable because of it...
However, the biggest criticism other reviewers have talked about is Jet Li in a chicken suit. I have to wholeheartedly disagree. Not only did it fit the film, it was a fantastic way to show how various Kung Fu styles were adapted.
This is a younger Jet Li than the guy in Fearless, and it is great to see the action!
