actor: Jet Li

The Expendables

August 13, 2010
The story isn't bad. A woman is dedicated to her people and she is involved in an assassination attempt against someone she knows very well. We won't plot spoil by saying who it is, but it turns out to be a bit surprising. She is loyal to her country and decides to stay after a failed attempt to [...]

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

August 1, 2008
There's plenty of action in this film for those who enjoy their movies moving along at the speed of light. And yet it slows down long enough here and there to concentrate on the troubles brewing between explorer Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) and his son Alex, played by Luke Ford. Alex is a chip [...]

The Forbidden Kingdom

April 18, 2008
"The Forbidden Kingdom" joins the ranks of films which "almost" received our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal. The language hit a level four and the violence rating hit a level three, which automatically disqualifies it from receiving the Dove Seal. Had these content levels been at a rating of two, we [...]

War

August 24, 2007
When an FBI agent’s partner and his partner’s family are murdered, the agent seeks revenge. At least, that’s what this film seems to be about, until a plot twist is revealed in the last ten minutes that makes the previous hour and 20 minutes seem totally nonsensical. I won’t reveal what [...]

Jet Lis Fearless

September 22, 2006

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Jet Li's "Fearless" contains some violent fight scenes, but also a wonderful storyline of honor, repentance, forgiveness, civility, respect and tradition. The fighting is well choreographed and not gratuitous. The lessons of personal growth and change are profound and appropriate for all [...]

Unleashed

May 13, 2005
This is by far the worst film that Jet Li has appeared in. The story moves along terribly slow, and the action sequences lack energy. I had hoped to see some good martial arts from Li like those depicted in his films “The One” and “Kiss of the Dragon,” but these scenes were derisory. The [...]

Hero (2004)

August 17, 2004
Hero is not your typical martial-arts film. While there is a gratuitous amount of violence with people impaled by swords, only two instances show any blood. There is a sword fight between several male combatants in a water garden, which is artistically breathtaking. A sexual encounter where a man [...]

The Enforcer

April 25, 2000
This slow-paced movie seemed to repeat itself. The acting cold have been a lot better. It was a movie in a different language put into English so it seemed fake. It had a large amount of violence with fighting, shooting, and men getting killed. An undercover cop hides his job from his family and [...]

Romeo Must Die

March 22, 2000
A cross between the amusing Jackie Chan and the more serious Bruce Lee, Jet Li speaks more softly than Mike Tyson, but carries a big kick. With the aid of special effects, daredevil stunts, piercing sound effects, and a pulsating rap score, the film and its star are highly energized. [...]
