Li's physical performance is terrific, as usual, and it's with wistful feelings that we watch him put a final whuppin' on his last adversary.
[Li's] pandering to the domestic (Chinese) market with a tired, formulaic martial-arts melodrama dressed up as epic.
| Original Score: 3/5
Though always charismatic, Li's most expressive when he lets fists fly.
| Original Score: B-
The movie turns into an inspirational, uncomplicated biopic in which, yes, a series of awesomely violent fight scenes indicate that our worst enemy can be found between our ears.
| Original Score: B+
A pretentious biopic about a Chinese sports legend.
| Original Score: 2/4
A lavish biopic that gives Li one of his juiciest roles but is relatively light on the action his fans have come to expect.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
This is one of [Li's] best movies, and is definitely a must for even those who are not chopsocky fans
| Original Score: 3.2/5
In Ronny Yu's sweeping film based on the life of wu shu master Huo Yuanjia, the retiring action star manages to tug a few heartstrings while breaking plenty of bones.
| Original Score: 3/4
As a way to go out, I can't imagine anything more beautifully appropriate.
| Original Score: 4/5
The action scenes are disappointingly conventional, constrained for the most part to one-on-one ring matches with inferior opponents.
A rather hokey script weighs down Jet Li's final Wushu (martial arts) movie.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Too often it seems to be just another action fantasy that teaches pacifism while indulging in brutality.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Perhaps predictably, the final work in Li's on-screen martial-arts career won't be the film to remember him by.
The 43-year-old actor claims that this will be his last martial arts epic. That's too bad when movies like this and 2002's Hero find him just hitting his stride.
This is clearly Yu's best work since his 1993 Hong Kong hit The Bride With White Hair.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Boldly conceived and handsomely produced, Fearless emits the kind of idealized glow that used to define Hollywood movies.
| Original Score: B
a brisk and handsome, if not exactly groundbreaking, high-end martial arts movie
| Original Score: 85/100
A subplot involving his attachment to a blind village girl doesn't go anywhere, nor is it necessary; the real love affair here is Li's passion for the sport.
While showing his 43 years, Li is still capable of ripping his way through an ornate restaurant or clearing out 15 challengers in as many seconds.
