Jet Li


Jet Li was Wushu (a martial art) national champion in China several times. He got his first part as a shaolin disciple in the film Shaolin Temple. His first attempt at directing, Born to Defense (1988) (Born to defend), met with failure. It was good film regardless, because it was the first time Li directed and had more realistic fight scenes.

Personal Quote:

[on Hero (2002)] Usually action films have a formula: good guy gets in trouble, his wife dies, friends have problems, so he goes to the mountain, learns martial arts, comes back, and kills the bad guy. But on this film, we talked about a totally different angle to see my character. See more »

Trivia:
