Once Upon a Time in China and America


Once Upon a Time in China and America Review

Tubby action star Sammo Hung steps behind the camera for this, the sixth entry into the Once Upon a Time in China series, with decidedly mixed results. Hung doesn't have much grasp of cinematic technique, and even his action scenes are hard to follow, as they're invariably filmed from too close to the action. Jerky editing and bad framing makes matters worse. The story -- about Chinese immigrants in the Old West getting in trouble with the nascent mafia -- is nothing to write home about either.
