Very humorous in places- also being a spoof of the Once Upon a Time in China series in general. When he returns 35 years later our view of the bridge is from under a freeway -- the world has moved along, but the bridge and Noodles are just as they were. It is like trying to understand a jigsaw puzzle with half of the pieces missing. Thus, the American workers' hatred towards the Chinese immigrants is high. When the bridge is just pilings and incomplete towers, Noodles is just forming his future.
The action and stunt-work in this film is almost the eighth wonder of the world. What is it that makes this movie a masterpiece?
