Jet Li's Fearless (Huo Yuan Jia) (Legend of a Fighter) Reviews

It's not that the film isn't entertaining, it's that it's simply nothing special.

Like so many biopics, a blind devotion to the subject renders the film a little stale at times.

While you're waiting for Jet Li's high-flying (and tricked-up) fights, I'm afraid you'll have sit through director Ronny Yu's lowbrow lunge at serious drama.

Becomes sedate and spiritual without losing its power.

Jet Li has to be commended for his performance, playing the full range of this dynamic character well. He makes you care about his character as the film builds to its climax.

Did anyone else notice that Jet Li has made two martial arts films named after the two competing airplane crash movies of 1992?

Fearless is a visual juggernaut.

It takes time for the film to bounce back to the heights of its opening scene, but about midway it does.

Every so often there is a hand-to-hand fight scene to cut the boredom -- the best is set atop a precipitously high wooden tower in a village square -- but even these don't set themselves apart from anything we've seen before.

Jet Li movies are still pretty cool, but they appear to be heading in an unfortunate direction.

It boils down to a simple but elegantly told morality tale with beautiful sets and scenery and plenty of bracing action.

A movie that condemns the tendency of global culture to intrude everywhere while embracing the very things that kick multiplex doors down around the world.

Maitland McDonagh
TV Guide's Movie Guide

An air of melancholy permeates even Yuen Wo Ping's dazzling fight sequences -- which rely on wire work and computer enhancement much less than most contemporary martial-arts films -- and the final scenes pack a surprising melodramatic punch.

The wushu philosophy offers a welcome alternative to the ideas that motivate too many movie heroes and too many real-world personal and political transactions.

An entertaining and admirably ambitious movie that promises a feast of martial arts combat, which it delivers along with a poignant message of peace.

If this really is Jet Li's last martial arts film as the marketing materials claim, he's going out on top.

If you're going to retire from the biz, might as well do it with some style.

It also seems fitting that Li, one of the world's great martial arts stars, wraps up his career by playing one of the founding fathers of modern martial arts.

[Li] may be serious about this retirement nonsense; for an athlete, he is at the outer reaches of a career. And yet one hopes this is not the case. Fearless represents such an apex that it leaves one wanting more of the same -- much more.

| Original Score: 3.5/4
