Pretty awesome, but I honestly thought it could have been a little better. But it clearly got its point across, and Jet Li voiced a lot of his beliefs through this movie.

First off, even if you're not a big fan of Jet Li because of his horde of horrible American movies (besides Unleashed which is very damn good, not as good as Leon though), do NOT shrug this movie off. This is a very good movie, and I'm not even sure if its American? Its entirely subbed, but that didn't ruin the movie or anything. Also, people who don't like wire-play (Crouching Tiger DBZ flying around way too over-the-top sillyness), well there's not much of that in this movie at all. Its far more realistic and believable than some of Li's past efforts.

All in all, if you're a fan of Jet Li's older (good) Chinese films, Bruce Lee stuff, Tony Jaa stuff, and just overall martial arts foreign films, then definitely check this movie out. I thought it was great.

I'm a big fan of martial arts epics and I've been wanting to see this for some time. I look forward to it in theaters. I'll have to post my thoughts on it once I see it.

I wonder when Li's going to come out with Rogue (no relation to X-Men) with Jason Statham.

He isn't. Fearless is his last action movie. Shame.

It's not his last action movie, just his last Kung Fu epic. Something like Unleashed isn't an epic, but Legend, Once Upon a Time in China and Hero are.

He's still making movies and hell, even still doing fight scenes in them, he's just not doing the Crouching Tiger caliber any more.

I am aware that he wasn't in Crouching Tiger, but since it's the most well-known film of that type in this country, it makes for an ideal example.

Yeah, its kind of a shame if you ask me. But he is getting pretty old isn't he? I'd guess ... maybe 40's even? But he's got that asian touch that keeps him young.

For now I guess we can just revert back to Tony Jaa. I'm loving his movies so far, and he seems to carry on the classic martial arts action in movies (with an added edition of breaking-bones+++).

I'm looking foreward to seeing this and just might fork up the cash to see it in theaters, rather than wait for it to come out in DVD or something. And in any case..I really liked "Hero"... So yeah...

I just saw this one over the weekend, and I was thouroughly impressed. My favorite fight in there was against Master Chin in the restaurant. I read about it a few months ago in the issue of Wired magazine with the pull-out how to guide, and it had everything they talked about.

But I had this kid in my theater that kept on saying stupid crap all throughout the movie. At the end of Huo and Chin's fight, that kid exclaimed, "He broke his chest!" I responded with, "God, would someone shut that kid up!" A bit mean, I know, but it needed to be said.

I want to see this soon! Hmmmmm.... Katana It's decided, we go to the movies tomorrow! YEA 4 Bucks for a movie!! Anyway, you'd best be there, or I'll eat your heart!

So, I'm really pumped to see this! Yea, I'm in need of watching a ludicrous high-flying action martial arts movie! Hopefully with a good story to back it up.

You guys should do an odd double feature (aka sneak into another movie afterwards).

We did this ... the movie we saw after Fearless? Jackass 2. Um, yeah. Didn't do much for me, I've never been a huge fan of the show or anything, but it was entertaining I guess.

I would absolutely NOT recommend seeing something like Jackass 2 and then Fearless. That'll just funk your night up. Do it the other way around, since Fearless is so serious and dramatic, and whatnot.
