Feat. Jet Li


Aroview: Lively martial-arts epic which is reportedly Jet Li's final offering of screen 'wushu' (traditional Chinese fighting) , retells the story of legendary Chinese fighter Huo Yuanjia, who at the height of his celebrity in the late-19th century was widely believed to be unbeatable.

Covering his growth, training and development, the film swerves into darker territory when a drunken brawl has devastating consequences. Although the plotline and pacifist themes are strictly rote, the wittily intricate choreography (courtesy of Woo-ping Yuen) is excitingly stripped-back, while Li contributes his usual warm presence.
