Fearless Opens Wide: Friday, August 4 After he survives a plane crash, Jeff Bridges begins to reevaluate his life with the help of fellow survivor Rosie Perez. Wait. Wrong "Fearless." In this one, Rachael Leigh Cook plays a government agent without the gene to feel fear. Wait. Wrong "Fearless." Seriously, folks, would it kill you to put a little effort into making your movie titles a bit more original? This particular "Fearless" is a martial arts epic starring Jet Li. Yuen Woo-ping ("Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon") choreographed the fight scenes for director Ronny Yu ("Freddy Vs. Jason"). The 43-year-old Li has promised that this film -- a longtime labor of love -- will be his final martial arts movie, which doesn't necessarily mean it's the final time he'll use martial arts in a movie. Don't get the distinction? Go ahead. Pick a fight with Jet Li about it. He dares you. We dare you.
