The point of the film is kung fu. But, sadly, it doesn't deliver.

It's unfortunate that so much of the running time has been given over to the plodding plot about a war between two gangs...

slick, Joel Silver-produced action movie with a borderline straight to video feel.

Guess what, kids! Your average Jet Li film is a LOT better than your average Jackie Chan film.

A nifty little package that should allow Jet Li to get a solid hold on American actioners.

It's not Shakespeare a la Kenneth Branagh, but it's not bad either.

What impresses me about this film is its consistency in terms of characterization.

Our star-crossed lovers are so emotionally off-channel, it's easy to forget the origin of the film's title...

The director gets carried away with his quick-cutting technique, to the point that it interferes with the viewer's ability to appreciate the fantastic choreography.

Way too much time is spent exposing the boring, conventional plot, with all its predictable twists and double-crossings.

It's funny and violent and occasionally quite entertaining, even if there's not a single convincing moment.

The movie barely manages to keep you awake, much less quicken your pulse.
