  1. It is not merely a thriller but a shocker. It will separate hard-core Jet Li followers from the fair-weather fans.

    Jet Li and Bridget Fonda form a terrific bond in this action film. And the choreography adds a nice kick, too.
  3. 75
    I like the movie on a simple physical level. There is no deeper meaning and no higher skill involved; just professional action, well-staged and filmed with a certain stylistic elegance.

    Seeing this movie won't get you into MIT, but it's passable fun.
  5. 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.

    Kiss of the dragon has plenty of action, the plot isn't original but it didn't have to be. The movie isn't his best
    movie, but the movie
    comes close to Unleashed on the action level. Expand

    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. Expand
