Kiss of the Dragon is very cool! Here’s a movie that gives you exactly what you’re looking for, if all you’re looking for is kickass action, some hardcore stunts and Jet Li slam-dunking everyone in sight!
Kiss of the Dragon also moves fast in nice surroundings (Paris, baby!) and gives us one of the best bad guys that I’ve seen all year; Tcheky Karyo who is the devil incarnate in this film.
He is pure evil. They should have called this movie Bad Lieutenant 2 as Keitel has nothing on this man.
But alas, in what should’ve been the break-out film for Jet Li, how could it go wrong? Many of the story elements of this film are blatant rip-offs of The Professional. Cool cinematic moments do not make a movie.
When will people learn this? But I still thought this movie was pretty good. I enjoyed it. There are lots of bad american action movies, too many people are critical of Asian action movies. Sit back and enjoy the action, a great story is important in any film, but not as critical in action movies. Just watch any of the Van Damme and Seagal movies, etc…
