How a @$$hole can remembered as a hero instead.

Jet Li stars as real-life martial artist Huo Yuanjian who lost everything because of his arrogance including his family and his reputation. But eventually over a self-imposed exile, he returns to the spotlight in 1910 to compete in an international tournament against fighters representing every colonial power of the time in order to help China regain its national pride. My biggest complaint is about its abrupt shift in tone.
I have to admit that the second half really took me by surprise at how dark
and depressing it became. (SPOILERS) So he finds that a student of his was beaten by a rival so he interrupts his rival's birthday celebration and KILLS him during the fight. Afterwards he discovers the rival had a noble reason and in return Huo Yuanjian's family is murdered out of revenge...

Jet Li's: Fearless (Huo Yuan Jia) review

The story of a young and matured Huo Yuanjia (Jet Li). Definitely one of the best fight scenes presented on screen be it with weapons or hand to hand. Best lines that summarizes the film: "The biggest enemy of a person is himself." Another wonderful quote: "One cannot choose how one's life begins. It takes courage to finish the final step." One of Jet Li's best performances, be it in the fight sequences or showing drama and cockiness because of his wushu martial arts. Locations and cinematography was gorgeous while the soundtrack adds to its critical scenes. Minor hindrances were the believability of the fight scenes, which felt like watching The Matrix or Crouching Tiger, though it was aptly displayed from the beginning of the aforementioned films. Fearless is composed of pure emo...

"Fearless" by Yojimbo

Fearless is based on the life of Huo Yuanjia, a martial artist who became the figurehead of Chinese national pride at the turn of the century. The format is all very familiar; a famous fighter becomes drunk on his own success until his arrogance results in tragedy leading to his downfall. He learns what is important in life and overcomes adversity to fight a final battle to restore the pride of his country. Yes, Rocky, The Karate Kid and a hundred others have followed this formula, but the fact that this is in fact based on a true story gives it much greater credibility. I would also have to say that, although I may be biased, the way the Chinese approach the subject matter is something akin to comparing a piece of artful, moving poetry to Hollywood's ham-fisted and tacky greetings card r...
