Once Upon A Time In China III    (1993)
Underestimated by the Anglo-Saxon audience for its supposed lack of pace, this third instalment is a new departure from the first two movies. Taking a break from crazy action scenes, Tsui Hark focus more on the couple Wong/ Aunt Yee, develops his reflection on cinema by introducing a camera within the movie, and deals with Chinese traditions such as the Lion Dance. Even if Fei Hung doesn't fight a worthy enemy, and even though the kung fu scenes are less realistic, but still breathtaking and hysterical, a wonderful character emerges from all this. Clubfoot (Hung Yan Yan) is a humiliated fighter who put his tremendous kicking skills at Fei Hung's service. Far to get exhausted, the Once Upon A Time In China saga has matured thanks to this new episode.
