The modern action-packed fable features rising martial arts star Philip Ng (Young and Dangerous: Reloaded) as a country bumpkin who moves to 1930’s Shanghai in the hope of becoming rich, but ends up honing his kung fu skills to become a lethal fighting machine.

After a series of eye-catching small roles, Philip Ng finally is given center stage with this rebooted look at the hero Ma Yung-Chen, who was immortalized in the 1972 Shaw Brothers film Boxer from Shantung and in the 1997 Hero. Ng, a master of martial arts, trained in Ving Tsun Kung Fu under the late Sifu Wong Shun-Leung and is also a 6th generation disciple of Choy Li Fut Kung Fu, training under his father, Sam Ng. Ng also excels in Hung Gar Kung Fu, Tae Kwon Do, Jiujitsu and Escrima.

Synopsis: Everyone wants to make their fortune in Shanghai, and Ma Yongzhen (Philip Ng) dreams of making an honest living – not with his fists. But the town is torn apart by rival gangs and when Boss Long Qi (Andy On) learns of Ma’s formidable martial arts skills, he’s brought into the family. Opposed to drug trafficking and leaking government secrets, Qi makes powerful enemies. And soon, Ma won’t have a choice. Fight or lose everything - including his friend (Sammo Hung) and his love, Tie Ju (Michelle Hu).

Bonus materials include the behind-the-scenes featurette “The Making of Once Upon a Time in Shanghai.”
