Charlotte Observer
Li plays haughty, brilliant wushu master Huo Yuanjia, whose recklessness leads to tragedy after he becomes a champion at the end of the 19th century.
Philadelphia Inquirer
With the exception of one sequence, this PG-13 movie is so youth-friendly that I thought I might take my 10-year-old. But that sequence, upsetting for those of any age, makes the movie better suited for mature 12-year-olds and older.
New York Daily News
Li's performance is stronger here than it has been in previous films.
Chicago Tribune
One of those corny, lusciously mounted, almost predictably thrill-packed action movies you can't help but like.
Call it "Jet Li's Wushu Retirement Party."
The final scenes pack a surprising melodramatic punch.
Despite some amusing jabs at America's influence on traditional China, this film leaves even this American viewer feeling oddly patriotic (or maybe just wishing she lived in China.)
The Hollywood Reporter
Witty choreography juices the pedestrian plot of Fearless, an earnest and technically accomplished biopic in which action star Jet Li flexes his limited dramatic muscles to portray kung fu master Huo Yuanjia.
New York Post
A lavish biopic that gives Li one of his juiciest roles but is relatively light on the action his fans have come to expect.
The movie is an enjoyable but flawed attempt at an epic story, with too much of the best action concentrated in the beginning.
