Just a year after raking in healthy box-office receipts with Once Upon a Time in China, Li returned as the legendary Wong Fei Hung in the first sequel -- and managed to outdo the first installment, grossing over $30 million during its Hong Kong theatrical run. Like the first chapter in the saga, Once Upon a Time in China II combines eye-popping martial arts action with a lesson in Chinese history; this time around, the storyline is based on events that transpired around the Boxer Rebellion that took place after the first Sino-Japanese War. Don't worry, though -- even if you slept through your world history courses, you'll still be able to enjoy watching Li whoop copious amounts of bad guy butt (including HK superstar Donnie Yen). "More concentrated and svelte than its precursor, Once Upon a Time II also has the benefit of fights staged by Master Yuen Woo-Ping that show Jet Li -- another camera-age hero -- to even greater advantage," wrote J. Hoberman of the Village Voice.
