On the surface Once Upon A Time In Vietnam is a big milestone in Vietnam for the post apocalyptic genre but on the technical aspect like directing and writing it a incredibly shallow movie to the point that I don't think no one will want to watch again. Both Dustin Nguyen and Veronica Ngo are two of the best action star from Vietnam and to see them on the same movie after The Rebel sound like a match make in heaven so at first I'm very forgiving with the cliché story " A nobody bring piece back to town" but as soon as it shift into a boring love triangle story and later on a complete mess with another guy who want a piece of Thanh Van ass all my hope for this movie to be just a fun and mindless action movie is gone. The action is actually very good if you got cat eyes because honestly for a movie with the only redeeming quality is the action like Once Upon A Time In Vietnam when something exciting happened the movie look so badly lit that you can't even see what going on and that maybe the biggest flaw that I can find out of this movie
