Trivia

In the scene where Ah So, Leung Fu and Mass Tar Wong attack the temple, Mass Tar Wong attacks a perverted monk on behalf of Wong Fei-Hung, Miss Nine and Beggar So. When asked by the perverted monk who Beggar So is, Mass Tar Wong says he doesn't know. Beggar So was originally one of the Ten Tigers of Canton along with Wong Kei-Ying and he is often associated with the Chinese fighting form "Drunken Boxing". See more »

You will BELIEVE a centipede can somersault sideways!!
5 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

My introduction to kung fu movies was Jet Li's "Fong Sai Yuk", which blew me away, and I'm happy to say that "The Last Hero In China" is every bit as great as the former. Lots of good jokes (incl. bad guys with infectious fits of hysterical laughter), lots of impressive fighting - even if it's wire-aided -, lots of enjoyable acting, and an uproarious climactic fight scene at the end; rooster vs. centipede!

The story, starring the legendary kung fu doctor, Wong Fei-Hung, is an old-fashioned romp which is perfectly suited to Jet Li's acting talent and charisma. The rooster costume he dons at the end, and the fighting style he invents, are hilariously entertaining, and he pulls it off with flying colors. This is the sort of thing Jet Li does best.

8 out of 10.
