Real Life Hero

I'm finding myself becoming an even bigger Jet Li fan after seeing how much he's doing for the earthquake victims.  He's such a good person!!  He's a genuine Buddhist.  I remember in "The Shaolin Temple" (another influential movie for me), the Abbot of the Temple said, "as Buddhists we must strive to help all people." 

Other cool statements from that movie (but perhaps they sound comical due to the creative English translators) were, "Buddhists and devils will not live together, I will kill you!," and "Kill the devils and enter Buddha!"  Jet's training sequence has always been inspiring:

One of my two favorite Jet Li movies continues to be Fist of Legend (the other one is Tai Chi Master).  It's just the perfect, well rounded action movie to me, and the numerous fight scenes are some of the best I've ever seen (and continue to see).  This movie has so many great fights!!  Here's two of my favs':

This is my all time favorite sword fight:

Of course, how could I forget Black Mask:

I couldn't decide whether to include this Jet Li/Jerry Timble fight, or the ending one in "The Master."  They're both friggin' awesome but this one will have to do:

This scene from "Dragon Fight" is one of my favorites from Jet Li's earlier work:

Jet Li has never looked more like a tough, bad-ass in this clip.  He's actually really convincing as a real, over-the-top, mean guy.  It's a real testament to his acting cause he seems like such a nice guy in real life.  I can't help it, I just love this clip!

God, so many great movies!!  He's had such an illustrious career and here's where it all began:
