  1. It is not merely a thriller but a shocker. It will separate hard-core Jet Li followers from the fair-weather fans.
  2. Kiss of the Dragon is a straight-ahead star vehicle for the trim and terse Li, whose steady gaze and fist-flying ways are tempered by a gentlemanly mien.
  3. 75
    The Hollywood action genre, sliding into a lazy dependence on computer-generated fakery, needs this authentic kick to the head delivered by Jet Li.

    What goes on when Li isn't fighting the bad guys isn't worth discussing; it's that stupid.

    It's one thing for a script to set the framework for an action film -- it's quite another when the script gets in the way.

    As though fatalistically compelled, all three leads self-destruct: Li is as flat, colorless, and stiff as a panel of Sheetrock, Karyo plays his every syllable in overdrive, and Fonda seems trapped in the midst of a failed screen test for Pretty Woman II.

    If you're into action packed films with lots of fighting and a weak plot then this is the film for you.
    I wasn't to keen on this film but I know many men who like it so I'm thinking it might be something to do with it being full of fighting which I'm not too keen of. It's also something for 'Jet Li' fans as he is the main character in this film so appears in it throughout the whole film. I'm giving it a five due to my opinion of that type of film not the film itself. So others are bound to disagree with me.
