On the Big Board
Position Staff In Brief
45/159 David Mumpower Jet Li is the anti-Robin Williams. Every project he chooses is excellent. If this is truly his last martial arts epic, it's a fitting send-off.
48/200 Max Braden The drama is mostly better than the fight sequences.

Digg Button  
As is clear by this film's title, Jet Li heads up the cast for this martial arts action-epic. That Jet claims it is his final film in the genre makes Fearless something of a curiosity; however, it certainly seems unlikely that this alleged retirement will remain in effect for an extensive period of time.

For Fearless, Jet is reteamed with producer Bill Kong and action director Yuen Woo-ping, with whom the star worked on Unleashed. Ronny Yu, perhaps best-known for directing horror flicks like Bride of Chucky and Freddy vs. Jason, is at the helm. Jet portrays real-life martial arts legend Huo Yuanjia, a man who became China's most famous fighter around the turn of the 20th century. Although this hero dealt with enormous personal tragedies and suffered terrible losses, he was able to fight through the grief and troubled times. In the end, he was best remembered for his victories at a tournament where he competed for his country and the soul of martial arts itself. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
