Fong Sai Yuk 方世玉 (1993) – Hong Kong

[] Fong Sai Yuk (1993) – Hong Kong

Made at the height of Jet Li’s rise to fame after the Once Upon a Time in China series. Li wisely teams up with action director Corey Yuen for this Hong Kong martial arts classic. A much lighter version of folk hero than Wong Fei Hug, Fong Sai Yuk is every part playful, enjoyable, melodramatic and plenty of brilliant fight scenes. Josephine Siao plays the mother and together with Li shares a wonderful chemistry on screen as mother and son. It is the central core to the success of the film. We also see the introduction of martial artist Vincent Zhao who plays the lead villain with menacing effect. His fights with Li remains one of those many 90s martial art cinematic moments. Michelle Reis appears in a flower vase role. If there is a favourite Jet Li’s movie, this one easily qualifies due to its immense fun, timeless enjoyment and terrific fight sequences to boot. Hong Kong cinema at its greatest pride. Happy new year!
