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.
