Wong Fei Hung is one of the great figures of light in Chinese history. Not only because he became an icon as a kung fu master, but also because he was a healing artist and dedicated his life to the poor, weak and disadvantaged. It is therefore not surprising that there are now well over 80 films about the Chinese folk hero.
This has already been embodied by Jackie Chan («Drunken Master»), Jet Li («Once Upon A Time In China») and «Ip Man» star Sammo Hung («Around the World in 80 Days»). Eddie Peng («Unbeatable») slips into the role of Wong Fei Hung in the visually stunning FSK 18 actioner » Rise Of The Legend «. The film is now available for viewing at no extra charge with an Amazon Prime Video subscription .
