Once Upon A Time In China V    (1994)
Tsui Hark makes a new instalment of the Wong Fei-hung saga that was widely acclaimed early nineties. The last episode is far from the ambitious first three. The saga has now turned into a mere commercial exploitation. Entertainement is therefore the priority here. But Tsui Hark doesn't totally forget his obsessions, with for instance the description of the control of the local authority by the pirates, a situation that refers to other movies from the Film Workshop Company. There isn't, however, any single sea battle, considered generally as the greatest moments of pirate movies. A shame!
