Critic Reviews for Kiss of the Dragon
Whack! Thworp! Crack! Sometimes, it's fun to sit back and enjoy the spectacle of bad guys getting their heads beaten in.
Li jumps into a series of martial arts sequences of flying fists and balletic moves that truly reinvigorate a genre that has gone stale even in Asia.
The characters in Kiss of the Dragon are more cardboard than usual for an action movie.
Kiss of the Dragon offers just about a kill a minute, but less than a thrill a minute.
Kiss of the Dragon does have a sense of its own absurdity, but that doesn't prevent it from cloaking the inherently comic kung-fu genre in a seriousness so solemn that it could be French.
Practical, resourceful and unfussy. That's Jet Li, the Martha Stewart of martial arts mayhem.
Audience Reviews for Kiss of the Dragon
A hard-boiled and and awesome action-packed thriller. A sizzling, sexy, thrilling and explosive shocker from start to finish. The action is fast, relentless and utterly furious. Jet Li packs pure star power along with his incredible skills, he proves that he's one of the greatest martial arts action stars to ever hit the screen. WIth Master Li and Producer, Luc Besson you can only get amazing with this explosive combo. It's filled with adrenaline-charged action that truly knocks you out. Tcheky Karyo is electrifying. Bridget Fonda is fantastic.
Worth watching for Li's martial arts but with a story loosely and formulaicly strung together you can't help but feel guilty while you cruise through this action flick. Oh well, at least it was better than his other film; Unleashed (Danny the dog.)
Not my favorite Jet Li outing, but it is Jet Li, so you know it's gotta be really bad for me to give it any fewer than three stars. I'd want more martial arts and less Bridget Fonda to give it a higher rating.
