Jet Li's Fearless

Jet Li's Fearless is a 2006 film based on the life of Chinese martial arts hero Huo Yuanjia (1868-1910). The Younger Son picked this. He had seen it before, but neither The Husband nor I had. We all enjoyed it. Good story, beautiful to watch.


Slant Magazine closes by saying,
Beginning as a polished, visually ravishing capper to Li's illustrious action career, it ultimately sermonizes itself into something of a bloodlust-denigrating wet blanket.
Salon.com says, "This martial-arts epic is one of the most beautifully made pictures of the year." It gets a score of 73% at Rotten Tomatoes. Metacritic gives it 70 out of 100.
