This is an action movie, and people don't come to be preached to; the "Terminator" flicks also favored world peace but didn't pause the action for nearly an hour to rub it in.

What are critics saying?
Manages to pack a satisfying emotional punch.
Li's performance is stronger here than it has been in previous films.
It's as subtle as a spinning kick, but some films aren't built for subtlety.
One of those corny, lusciously mounted, almost predictably thrill-packed action movies you can't help but like.
Fearless sustains the tradition of ethically inflected Chinese action movies.
It's handsome, well-populated and offers beautiful scenery and settings. But "House of Flying Daggers" it ain't; maybe "House of Fallen Arches"?
As the very traditional hero, Li keeps us riveted through the fisticuffs, and he also carries off the film's heavier dramatic moments well enough -- though, as always, his lack of a strong personality prevents the movie from ever genuinely catching fire.
