Yes, there was a new kung fu movie out this past weekend and I went to it. I’ve become a sucker for kung fu movies, mainly because they are almost always entertaining. They may not be great movies, but they entertain.
This one was no different. Fearless, staring Jet Li, in what he calls his last kung fu movie, is a good movie. The kung fu sequences are phenomenal and there is a captivating story (something lacking in a lot of movies) that links the action sequences.
Regardless of whether you like kung fu movies or not, this movie is worth watching, whether you catch it in a theatre or later at home, watch it.
It tells the story of the Chinese Martial Art Master Huo Yuanjia who becomes a symbol to the entire nation, and one worthy of being a model for how everyone should live their lives.
I want go into details of the story other than to say it worth watching. If this is indeed Jet Li’s last movie, he definitely ended on a high note.
