Jet Li's Shocking Appearance Has Fans Worried About His Health
International action star Jet Li made headlines over the weekend after the actor was photographed after an appearance in Tibet, because the actor is practically unrecognizable.

The fight scenes start out violent and blood-stained but gradually progress into grand artistic spectacles – some of the best you’ll ever see.
