...playing a guy who can't talk, only understands simple commands at first, and whose only marketable skill is kicking people's asses.


Not exactly Oscar-worthy, know what I mean?


If you want to see Jet Li act, Fearless (Huo Yuan Jia in China) is a much better example of his ability to portray a more complex character.

I like Jackie Chan.  When they show the outtakes at the end of some of his movies, you can see how skilled and crazy he is.

One other thing I want in their movies is not to second guess what they are saying.  I will watch it subtitled to get what they are saying sometimes.  With Jet, I understand more, dont know if its because he has very little lines or the 4 hours a day english tutoring he has.   ;)

It's Jet Li for me.  He seems so much more intense.
