From Amazon.co.uk

A moving and inspiring story of redemption and personal triumph in the face of great odds, Jet Li's Fearless is the based-on-facts story of Chinese folk hero Huo Yuanjia (Jet Li). The son of a martial-arts master whose greatest strength was his restraint, Huo grows into an unbeatable fighter whose pride and thoughtlessness lead to a chain of tragic losses. After a classic wanderer-in-the-wilderness penance, Huo reinvents himself as a mature instructor of Wushu, a martial arts system that embraces all forms of fighting without preference or pre-judgement. He also becomes a populist symbol, at the dawn of the 20th century, of China's refusal to entirely capitulate to the boot of Western colonialists. Taking on whatever European, American, or Japanese fighter the outsiders bring in to demoralize the natives, Huo becomes a legend that, in real life, is still revered. Thrillingly directed by Ronny Yu (Warriors of Virtue), Jet Li’s Fearless is a dazzling action movie that transcends its breathless fight sequences with Huo's sportsmanship virtues, i.e., knowing when you've won by example, rather than by the fist. Jet Li is superb in the role. --Tom Keogh

Synopsis

Following the death of his father in combat, Huo Yuanjia (Jet Li, Hero) vows to become a great martial artist and starts establishing himself as one of the greatest fighters in Tianjin, China. After a tragic incident that results in a number of deaths, Huo flees the region. When he returns to Tianjin he finds that the place is teeming with foreign merchants and soldiers. Huo challenges famous American wrestler Hercules O'Brien (Nathan Jones, Warrior King), resulting in the Foreign Chambers of Commerce challenging Huo to take on four foreign fighters. Billed as Jet Li's final martial arts epic, Fearless sees the Chinese superstar play the legendary martial artist Huo Yuanjia, the most famous Chinese fighter in the early 20th century. Yuanjia was the founder of the Jin Wu Sports Federation and challenged foreign fighters to bouts. As with Jet Li's Once Upon a Time in China films, Li plays a character that stands up for the Chinese people at a time when Western influence was having a significant impact on China. Fearless benefits from the teaming up of Jet Li's dynamic skills with Yuen Woo-Ping's inspired martial arts choreography--the pair had worked together with similar effect in the first two of the Once Upon a Time in China films--to create a stunning action-packed film that serves as a fitting finale to Jet Li's epic martial arts film career.

5.0 out of 5 stars Arguably the greatest martial arts movie ever!!! 13 Feb 2008
Format:HD DVD
I grew up in an era of Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris and Jackie Chan (amongst others) churning out classic after classic to satisfy the Kung-Fu-mania sweeping through the US.

However, if there has ever been a movie that more successfully addresses the ethos behind all martial arts, while at the same time, delivering the very highest quality in Hollywood-glossed action, I've not seen it! Jet Li is awesome, as are the rest of the cast.

An absolute classic! If there is anyone out there who was a fan of martial arts movies as a kid and has not seen this, it will make your day! Pay whatever they're asking!

5.0 out of 5 stars Destined to surprise you 21 Sep 2007
By Fantasy Lore TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Even including the vibrant and polished martial arts film `Hero' in which Jet Li also stars `Fearless' is, if not the most exciting martial arts film I've seen in recent years then it's definitely the most original and poignant. The film begins with a tone that's quite playful and humorous as Jet Li's character Huo Yuanjia is a young boy and with aspirations to follow in his father's footsteps and train in the ancient fighting style known as wushu. At that point my expectations weren't particularly high for a film that would offer anything other than the familiar martial arts' surface gloss. Forever accompanied by his faithful friend Nong Jinsun there are liberal doses of comedy (albeit with equal helpings of bloodshed and brutality) and you might begin to wonder as I did if there's likely to be any exploration of a warrior's psyche implied in the film's synopsis, or if it will simply be another empty vessel of high kicks and upper-cuts. But this film is destined to surprise you...

Gradually and grippingly the film begins to build a slightly darker, but also more touching tone, as a tragic fate befalls Huo's family thanks to his arrogance and eagerness to embrace conflict rather than peace. From that point on Huo goes on a journey of self discovery, finding himself in the end in a similar position but with the chance to make the right decision, even if it means making the greatest sacrifice a warrior can make. In fact `Fearless' explores the spectrum of human emotion from humour to grief, honour to forgiveness. If this is to be Jet Li's final martial arts movie, it's easily one of his greater achievements as an actor in this genre. Artfully and poignantly directed, well-acted and beautifully filmed. Stunning and moving.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 30 Jun 2007
Format:DVD
I watched this film about 3 times in a row. It's simply brilliant. A great story line based on a real legend which honors martial artists across the globe. As mentioned the fights are brilliantly done but what i really like about this film is the acting, i found myself really involved with the story and loved the way Jet is able to play a more mature role i was actually impressed by his acting, no offense JET!! looking forward to War. This is a must buy for fans alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars Martial Arts extravanganza 20 April 2007
By Jay
Format:DVD
A Film that I enjoyed very much. It has a very strong plot which is also based on a true story about an martial arts master, Huo Yuan Jia and together with great actors and actresses, a masterpiece is presented. As an Asian, I have already seen too much martial arts movie, however this one stuns me with the story and acting as I have mentioned above, but as well as their visual effects, every movement is shown clearly, one would find their heart beating hard as the fight is going on, the music in the film also fits perfectly with the film. I have to mention that this film is quite Hollywood standard and I believe it is because Jet Li had already learn a few elements to make a good Hollywood film when he was filming some Hollywood films a few years back. As Jet Li has said, this will be his last martial arts movie and wants to make it a good one, I think he has already fulfilled his dreams, because this is a truly Jet Li movie and I think a lot of people would like this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars a simple, great film 20 Sep 2006
Format:DVD
when i went to watch this film, i was expecting something similar to 'Hero' or 'House of Flying Daggers,' where everything is incredibly bright and colourful, and the fighting seems more like a ballet than anything else

with Fearless i was pleasantly surprised by what i saw; the fighting was fast, gritty and shocking, reminding me of the classic 70's kung fu films but with a much more polished, up to date edge. the story was not especially epic, but that's what i loved about it; there was an elegant simplicity to the whole thing that made it easy to connect with and enjoyable to watch. nothing pretentious or over-the-top.

so, if you loved the action in the 70's kung fu films (or just martial arts in general), if you enjoy a good story, and if you have the stomach for some tragic, shocking and violent scenes, then this film won't dissapoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent BD! 11 April 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Very good movie, excellent picture quality and all versions of the movie! One of my favorite Jet Li movies.... so far :-)

For all Germanns: Ihr könnt bedenkenlos zuschlagen. Wie mein Vorredner bereits erwähnte kann man zu Beginn des Filmes alle drei Versionen (Unrated, DC, Kino) auswählen! Leider kein Deutscher Untertitel verfügbar aber das Schulenglisch sollte ausreichen.

Greetings from Lake of Constance

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! 13 Mar 2008
Format:HD DVD
The action scenes are quite simply stunning (if you like that sort of thing) and the story does have an interesting moral to tell, without being patronising or banal. Jet Li is brilliant, but other actors tend to be lost in his shadow and thus are 2-D. Definitely one of the best Martial Arts
