  1. Much of the film's virtue lies in its straight-ahead narrative and uncomplicated morality. That and the undeniable charisma and virtuosity of its star.
  2. Though it somehow manages to be a movie about inner peace with crazy, incredibly staged fight scenes every 10 minutes, it is, first and foremost, a movie about inner peace.
  3. 75
    Despite some amusing jabs at America's influence on traditional China, this film leaves even this American viewer feeling oddly patriotic (or maybe just wishing she lived in China.)
  4. The theme behind Fearless is utterly simplistic, but universal: violence begets violence. It's a never ending cycle that becomes more and more vicious, until someone decides to stop it. It's a worthy final installment.

    Manages to pack a satisfying emotional punch.
  6. 63
    A lavish biopic that gives Li one of his juiciest roles but is relatively light on the action his fans have come to expect.
  7. 50
    The truth is, Jet Li has gotten soft in his old age. While fans of the "Once Upon a Time in China" star will be pleased to learn that at least half of Fearless is action, what they may not realize is just how mushy everything else is.

    Good sendoff. Storyline can be cheesy at times but everything comes together in the end. Another good hero story.

    Yes this movie is very good...I thought it was rather excellent until I realized that it lacked the proper closing. If they came up with a Yes this movie is very good...I thought it was rather excellent until I realized that it lacked the proper closing. If they came up with a better ending than it would have been the best martial arts movie hands down! Expand

    At first I thought it was just another 'fight, fight and fight some more' film, but it take a more artful turn at the midpoint. Not At first I thought it was just another 'fight, fight and fight some more' film, but it take a more artful turn at the midpoint. Not as emotionally powerful as some other genre films, like HERO, but a good film with a respectable message about rejection of violence. Expand
