So, since Jet Li is a “true” martial artist he is only capable of portraying “martial artists” on the big screen? And since none of you seem to remember that Chow Yun-Fat WAS in a movie in the very early 80’s that displayed his martial arts prowess, he can’t display ANY skills - so as NOT to “insult” Jackie Chan and Jet Li? Incredible.
I don't see any of you complaining about Keanu Reeves, Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, and other actors who are currently displaying some martial arts "abilities" (for lack of a better word) on the big screen. Two of my favorite actors are Chow Yun-Fat and Tony Leung. These guys got presence, acting ability, and can switch from suave romantic lead to tough-action guy in a second. And have done it. In other words, they're versatile. Just like Jet Li and Jackie Chan have got to be.
Mustang: Yeah, I figured as much. It just stupifies me as to why THIS guy and not another more capable actor. Maybe he'll surprise me?
