October 9, 2020
An unusually balanced, satisfying martial arts extravaganza - and one of Li's greatest American endeavors.

Jet Li's true masterpiece of the 2000s is a blitzkrieg of crazy, hard-R martial arts. Forget the need to always know who's beating whom or why in a narrative that's basically negligible. "Dragon's" gritty, giddy grindhouse thrills trump logic.
