For those of you who are martial arts aficionados, or aficionados of martial arts movies, I can do no better than point you to Jet Li's Fearless, now in theaters. This movie is really great. In the tradition of Hero, and Romeo Must Die, there is real character development (rare for action movies I suspect); it also has a good message. There is forgiveness for real wrongs, letting go of vengeance, recognition of true valor, honor, letting go of self. While these concepts are not anchored in a Christian worldview, I was very impressed with the values in this film. There is no nudity or sensuality (there is a romance of sorts, but remarkably tastefully done), no language that I can recall. There is a great deal of violence, to be sure. But it's violence with a point, that point being to show how it is the last resort to solving problems. This movie is based on a true story. You can look it up on Yahoo Movies to get an idea of the plot. Highly recommended!

In Christ.

Yup, another martial arts movie. This one, though, is Jet Li's last martial arts epic, if you believe the reports. He might act in other movies, I suppose. He's probably getting too old for such things, since he does all his own stunts (probably breaks at least three bones per movie, if Jackie Chan is anyone to go by). Please let me know what your husband thinks of it, if he does go watch it.

In Christ.
