Jet Li's Fearless

Allegedly, Jet Li's final martial arts film (say it ain't so, Jet!), this historical kung fu film was a major hit in its native China. Li plays the legendary Chinese martial arts hero Master Huo Yuanjia, the founder and spiritual guru of the Jin Wu sports federation (basically, the first organization to pit fighters against one another in one-on-one bouts). It ain't a whole lot different than his other historical fight films (like Once Upon a Time in China). But the occasionally witty fight choreography keeps things punchy. In English, Japanese and Mandarin with English subtitles. 104 minutes PG-13.
