First we get Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, then Hero, then House of Flying Daggers and now Fearless. I love these epic martial arts dramas! They end up having a great story to tell with interesting characters as well as top-notch martial arts mayhem. This, however, is the best of the bunch in my opinion. No crazy wire-fu stunts add to the coolness of the awesomely choreographed fights (by The Matrix Trilogy's Yuen Wo-Ping), and it features a great story about a real life martial artist who founded a still popular school for Wushu martial arts back in the early 1900s. Jet Li gives the performance of his career, and while this is his last film of this type, I can't wait to see what he has in store for his fans in the future. My favorite film of the year so far!

5 out of 5
