75
Chicago Tribune
One of those corny, lusciously mounted, almost predictably thrill-packed action movies you can't help but like.
75
Premiere
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.)
75
Li's performance is stronger here than it has been in previous films.
70
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.

Variety
Manages to pack a satisfying emotional punch.
70
Fearless sustains the tradition of ethically inflected Chinese action movies.
67
As the very traditional hero, Li keeps us riveted through the fisticuffs, and he also carries off the film's heavier dramatic moments well enough -- though, as always, his lack of a strong personality prevents the movie from ever genuinely catching fire.
67
The A.V. Club
It's as subtle as a spinning kick, but some films aren't built for subtlety.
60
Washington Post
It's handsome, well-populated and offers beautiful scenery and settings. But "House of Flying Daggers" it ain't; maybe "House of Fallen Arches"?
50
Village Voice
This is an action movie, and people don't come to be preached to; the "Terminator" flicks also favored world peace but didn't pause the action for nearly an hour to rub it in.
