ProFight choreography, story

ConsDubbing

I am forever in awe of the discipline and morality that seems to come with martial arts, the true meaning behind what we see as just 'fighting' on the whole. Jet Li has starred in many a film featuring different types of martial arts, and here he stars in a true story about a martial artist who...

“Fearless - Jet Li”

published 22/10/2007

ProGreat story, Exceptionally choreographed and shot.

ConsLack of special features (and for some it's subtit...

The cinematography in Jet Li's final martial arts film is astonishing, as are the martial arts scenes. However it's not just your typical martial arts flick where there are hundreds of baddies and they mysteriously attack once at a time, the protagonist is unfeasibly talented and the antagonist...

Good

ProFun kung fu stuff

ConsA little long

Rated 13 Suitable for kids and up RuN-TiMe 103 Minutes It's fair to say that Jet Li is huge in the Far East and pretty big in America, but in real life rather small. It's an oddity but cinemas greatest martial arts stars, like the worlds all time best footballers, have all been comfortably under...

ConsNeeded a alternative ending.

Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. Released in 2006, this is about the best story that I've seen in his solo base career as a fighter. The story begins in the early 1900's where his father ran a self defense school for wushu style fighting. Wushu technique...

“Truly Fearless”

published 07/09/2007

ProGreat fight scenes and a very endearing storyline

ConsNot quite gripping

Fearless is a Jet Li film, and it is his last wushu ("a type of martial arts that focuses on self-defense rather than actual fighting") epic. The film is based around story of the real life chinese Wushu hero Huo Yuanjiam played by Jet Li. The story is a major selling point for the film and I...

Cons If you don't like subtitles.

The story revolves around a man named Huo Yuanjia, which starts right near the end of the film, where he is fighting four opponents from different martial arts styles. What I like about this is how it goes back in time to show the reason why he is fighting these people in this contest. It also...

“Amazing!”

published 17/03/2009

ProLooks great & is very watchable

ConsNone at all really

I'm giving this film 10/10 and it earns every single mark of it. It was sheer brilliance from start to finish as I genuinely expected a film with overdone wire work but this was a good film that was made even more watchable by the fact of it being based on a true story. Jet Li plays the man who...

Conssubtitles

Kung fu films are known for their action and choreography with little in the way of plot, Fearless, (choreographed by the guy who did all the matrix scenes). Is a story of 'Never give up'. It tells the story of a Wushu master and the journey he takes to becoming a true master of his art. With a...

“Fantastic martial arts”

published 27/01/2007

ProAction-packed martial arts epic

ConsIf you don't like subtitles

I bought 'Fearless' without really knowing much about it and was merely one of those recommendations made by amazon, as I enjoy martial art films. 'Fearless' is an action-packed martial arts epic with amazing fighting sequences, equally balanced by a riveting story of a wushu fighter battling...

Product Information : Fearless (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

Following the death of his father in combat, Huo Yuanjia (Jet Li, HERO) vows to become a great martial artist and starts establishing himself as one of the greatest fighters in Tianjin, China. After a tragic incident that results in a number of deaths, Huo flees the region. When he returns to Tianjin he finds that the place is teeming with foreign merchants and soldiers. Huo challenges famous American wrestler Hercules O'Brien (Nathan Jones, WARRIOR KING), resulting in the Foreign Chambers of Commerce challenging Huo to take on four foreign fighters. Billed as Jet Li's final martial arts epic, FEARLESS sees the Chinese superstar play the legendary martial artist Huo Yuanjia, the most famous Chinese fighter in the early 20th century. Yuanjia was the founder of the Jin Wu Sports Federation and challenged foreign fighters to bouts. As with Jet Li's ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA films, Li plays a character that stands up for the Chinese people at a time when Western influence was having a significant impact on China. FEARLESS benefits from the teaming up of Jet Li's dynamic skills with Yuen Woo-Ping's inspired martial arts choreography--the pair had worked together with similar effect in the first two of the ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA films--to create a stunning action-packed film that serves as a fitting finale to Jet Li's epic martial arts film career.
