This is the best action-adventure-comedy that Tsui has ever made, hence one of the year's most exhilarating entertainments.

John Hartl

Giving it a title that suggests an Eastern version of a Sergio Leone epic raises expectations that can't be fulfilled.

Fred Topel

Great follow-up to OUATIC. More of a political conspiracy plot than a cultural one, but still has great fight scenes.

Stephen Holden
New York Times

A splendid if frankly fake-looking spectacle.


For sheer excitement, virtuoso fight sequences and extravagant special effects, Hark's film is hard to beat.

It is a great-looking film with top-notch martial arts sequences and high production values.

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.

Rob Thomas
Capital Times (Madison, WI)

Much more than just another martial arts movie.

Apollo Guide

With its ability to maintain a balance between a high standard of intense action and thought-provoking storytelling, Once Upon a Time in China II accomplishes something very few sequels achieve: it outshines the original.
