Eureka Classics retells the ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA TRILOGY (review)

The 4K restorations of Tsui Hark's epic series on Chinese folk hero Wong Fei Hung from Eureka Video's limited edition ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA TRILOGY are back on Blu-ray in an economically-priced standard edition.  Jet Li plays the traditional doctor and martial artist whose code of honor is tested by foreign powers, violent isolationalist sects, corrupt officials, and true love in the series first three films and the Sammo Hung-directed sixth entry (Li having sat out the fourth and fifth entries).  Rosalind Kwan also stars.
