I'm surprised there's not a thread about this movie already. Quickie: Based (moderately) on a true Chinese legend/hero Jet Li's last martial arts flick No frills badass fighting and a good story all the way through Go see it! It's worth your money. You non Mandarin Chinese speaking people will be reading subtitles 98% of the time though. Thankfully, I didn't really have to- and the translations are pretty good. There were only a few spots where 3-4 sentences got condensed down to 3-4 words.
