Storyline

A spoof of the legendary martial arts icon Wong Fei-Hung, this action comedy finds Fei-Hung (Alan Tam) being challenged to duels by the crafty Ken Shek (Tony Leung Ka Fai). However, Fei-Hung is actually a cook and has not mastered any martial arts move and, therefore, relies on his "disciples" Porky Wing (Eric Tsang), Leung Foon (Simon Yam) and So (Man Tat Ng) to train him. Meanwhile, Shek has purchased opium from shady businessman Indiana Jones (Paul Fonoroff) and plans to rule the town with the profits he gained from selling the drug. Written by Oliver Chu

A wonderful parody to a wonderful movie.
6 October 2001 | by FujisawaSee all my reviews

It isn't very often that I see a good HK parody. The main character, Wong Fei-Hung is a no-talent martial artist who's secret is kept by his 3 servants who promised Fei-Hung's father that they'd teach him in the ways of Martial Arts, Medicine, and Love Making, all of which have failed miserably. To add to this misfortune, Fei-Hung's arch nemesis "Bad Egg" Ken Shek is plotting to defeat Fei-Hung, the only thing holding him back is his fear of the "No-Shadow" kick, that has a reputation of defeating any enemy.

The show itself is a blend of some western humor as well as the obvious Once Upon a Time in China references. The english title for this movie is aptly named "Once Upon a Time a Hero in China." The slapstick humor and parodies of several familiar characters made this movie worth watching over and over again. If you can get your hands on it. I'd suggest buying it.
