CD Reviews

Disappointing selection of music
Patricia E Lin | Houston, Texas United States | 07/21/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I love the Once Upon a Time in China series, I love the Swordsman series, I love Jackie Chan's movies. But somehow this cd doesn't do it for me. The song selections are peculiarly slow, not at all the heart-pumping action-packed music of Hong Kong's most famous martial arts movies.The best pieces are the selections from Once Upon a Time in China and The East is Red, but they're slower versions of the themes. It's as if someone bought the OUATIC soundtrack and chose only the slow songs off it to make a new compilation. Likewise, the selections from The East is Red don't even include the Hero of Heroes song that is the basic theme to the whole trilogy. If what you're looking for are the rousing themes from these movies, you'd better keep looking for the movie soundtracks."
Super CD

"A very good CD! It's one of the best Soundtrack CD's I've ever heard. The shipping was very fast. Really good service."
Once Upon a Time in China

"If you want to feel the pulsating rhythm of a gloriously done Hong Kong movie, then this is the soundtrack to buy. The music is a great blend of percussion that makes you want to kick and punch something and tender string instrumentals for those tender moments. If you have seen the movie and are a fan of Hong Kong Martial Arts movies, then this is a must. Some of the best Chinese music artist do their finest."
