Fearless

I went to see the new Jet Li movie this afternoon, Fearless, and found it an engaging and thoughtful film. Warning, it's a Chinese film, so it has subtitles. If you are not discouraged by having to read and watch at the same time, though, I highly recommend it. It's based on a true story about a Chinese martial arts master who, for the sake of fame, loses all that is important to him. The film speaks of the need for repentance, healing, forgiveness, restoration of what has been broken (particularly broken relationships) and finding a new and better way of living. The cultural context may not be Christian, but all the themes are. Aside from that, the photography of the fight scenes, and scenes of rural landscapes are breathtaking.
