but why can't you just click the button that says "trailers?" Jet li is an asshole, though. This is supposedly his last martial arts film and he's going to retire.

OK, this trailer has got me really excited. Fuck Kong, fuck war of the worlds or whatever big budget "extravaganza" of the past year, this is jet doing what he does best and I am pumped for this! Hurrah!

if you want to do some philosophical shit, i can always write you a script for that but it would have to include kickass martial arts as well because nobody wants to see you in a movie with no fights at all. i know... i'm still shuddering from Cradle 2 the Grave too... but that doesn't mean you stop doing martial arts movies altogether. why not do more intelligent/philosophical martial arts on the level of Hero?

But then again, just because it LOOKS like shit, doesn't mean it HAS to be shit right? Right? RIGHT?? [crickets chirping]. godamnit :(
Jan. 3, 2006, 8:33 a.m. CST
This looks quite awesome, and Jet looks as kickass as ever...

This is indeed the shit! If it is Li's last martial arts film, I suspect it to be a grand finale!
Jan. 3, 2006, 9:51 a.m. CST
just apparentely retiring from action/martial arts films - from what i heard he wants to still make movies - like family movies and crap like that - who knows - maybe they can sign him on for the Pacifier 2: Once Upon a Time in a dirty Diaper...

And I'm glad I didn't. This looks like a serious movie. I've become pretty jaded by the typical sneerworthy asian flying people shitstain movies that make it here to the states(*cough* Hero *cough* Crouching Tiger *cough* House of Flying Daggers). This looks like hardcore serious martial arts - I dare day, almost like a Chinese Cinderella Man. Can't wait to see it.
Jan. 3, 2006, 1:16 p.m. CST
I mean he's not that great an actor so unless he's the most hung asian man on the planet I imagine this will mean retirement, no?

in fact, FvJ is the worst movie in either series. dont argue with me, u wont win.
Jan. 3, 2006, 4:21 p.m. CST
so he'll just go meditating forever, maybe even walk the earth

It is classic, and probably in my top 5 for Asian Swordplay movies. Although the sequil is a steaming pile.

Whatever happened to Brigitte Lin. She was amazing! Someone needs to start casting her again.

in fact wasn't kick boxer a remake of a jet li movie. I wonder if he'll beat the biggest bad guy and everyone will cheer?

Him and Jackie Chan have had one thing major in common lately... to do serious drama roles with no martial arts in them. Period! It's not that Jet dosen't like doing martial arts it's just that he's been making martial art movies since he was just under 11yo. He's what now? 42yo? Means he's been in the martial art film business for 31 years of his life. Thats a lot!! You'd want to retire or move onto something else also. I own ever single one of his original imported films, not the hacked up us releases... so I too don't want him to stop making great action films. Have to respect not wanting typecasted as an actor tho... look at Carrie Fisher.

This movie is actually a prequel to Fist Of Legend. About the man, Master Huo, who eventually became Chen Zhen's (Jet Li) master in Fist Of Legend. Later on to be poisoned and killed through a conspiracy to war the Chinese against the Japanese. He's basicly another Chinese folk hero like Wong Fei Hung.

Especially under the guidance of Yuen Woo-Ping. Thanks for that second trailer, Kampbell-Kid, I liked it way better.

Too bad he doesn't have Donnie Yen to haul a classic out of him. Looks good, thou. Kinda like the original Street Fighter game crossed with Shaolin Challenges Ninja.

I've always enjoyed the solace of a good Jet Li film. Here's to hoping he made his last one of his best. Though Fist of Legend is still my favorite.
Jan. 4, 2006, 1:24 p.m. CST
were going at it it almost reminded me of the Rocky vs Hulk Hogan match in Rocky III
Jan. 4, 2006, 11:55 p.m. CST
That looked kinda cheesy. Hopefully they'll get to make a full length trailer that cost more than a stick of bubblemint. I can't tell from the teaser just how well Yu is at directing action or making it compelling, But Li and Ping, how could you go wrong?

So he's doing a Van Damme Remake? Ha! With a lot of people in Jaa's corner, this one better be good.

Fuck Hollywood, reason number 23: Everything Jet Li did there. Hollywood can fuck up anything, even a man as inhumanly gifted as Li. Only if Li had killed Riggs and Murtaugh would his time in Hollywood have been worthwhile. Hero rocked ass, and I have every expectation this will too. And Hollywood, I want back the years you took out of Jet Li's career.

Almost as good as Fist of Fury (aka The Chinese Connection).

Breaking News: During an interview with Chinese newspaper Nanfang Daily, Jet Li said he would no longer making any more wushu movie because, what he wanted to say about wushu through movies had all been said. There was nothing more to say about wushu, in another word, he could no longer show wushu on a higher level. But, he would continue doing action movies and kung fu movies. So this is his last Wushu film not his last martial arts or action flm he is just not shaving his head nad doing the whole hack philosphy crap anymore.

This and Unleashed were good stuff.
