Fearless is rumoured to be superstar Jet Li’s last martial arts film. Even if it is not, the dynamic and breath-taking action sequences alone already provide a good reason to watch it. The movie also features famous Japanese actor Nakamura Shidou (Be With You), who will have some spectacular fighting scenes with Jet Li. Li also demonstrates top-notch martial arts when fighting with Thai Olympic boxing champion Somluck Kamsing and the 7′ tall Australian wrestler Nathan Jones (Tom Yum Goong). Director Ronny Yu (Freddy vs. Jason) and action choreographer Yuen Woo Ping (The Matrix), who have both become hot properties in Hollywood in recent years, join forces to offer a film which will not disappoint action movie fans for sure.
Fearless follows the life of Huo Yuanjia (1867-1909), founder of the Jing Wu Sports Federation. Apart from the gripping plot, partly historical and partly fabricated, the film also demonstrates great creativity in its action scenes. Rarely does a movie show contests between Chinese Kung-fu and Japanese Judo or Thai boxing, but Fearless will show you all these, with every scene carefully choreographed, plus more! The film’s exploration into the spirit beneath Chinese martial arts, which is as significant as the stunning actions, distinguishes Fearless from ordinary Kung-fu movies. Jet Li will show fans the real meaning of Chinese martial arts, and why true heroes are Fearless.
