What can I say that hasn't already been said? Nothing, so I'll just reinforce the points others have made. The fight scenes are well choreographed, and even have some humor thrown in there. It's a great story with rich history attached. If you like kung fu movies, you owe it to yourself to see this movie.

But beyond that there is little insight into his thoughts and feelings and as a result, it's plot is a rather dry and stodgy biopic in which he becomes little more than a living flag to wave; through this you can see "The State's" sticky fingers all over this project. Although Fearless had an aspect of this, it had a heart and soul that gave a human …
