A supremely satisfying blend of Hong Kong mayhem and Gallic flair that can only bolster Li's escalating reputation.
July 9, 2001
Whack! Thworp! Crack! Sometimes, it's fun to sit back and enjoy the spectacle of bad guys getting their heads beaten in.
July 6, 2001
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.

A disappointing follow-up to Jet Li's Romeo Must Die.

Jet Li film is not for kids.
September 19, 2010
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.

A return to form for Li who dropped all the hip hop crap and was allowed to put his raw skills on display...

The formulaic story cannot weigh down the high-flying, visceral excitement that the film offers in generous doses.

Kiss Of The Dragon, like its title, combines the seductive and ferocious. Not to mention playing out like a chiropractor's wet dream

Li is fun to watch, but the plot is familiar, the characters are static, and motivation . . . what's that?

We are coaxed to rejoice in the name of vengeance.
August 1, 2003
Li has smartly decided to eschew the all-too-fashionable use of wires for the fight scenes in favor of old-fashioned hand-to-hand combat.

Poor Jet Li . . . he doesn't have the comedic timing of Jackie Chan, the looks or charm of Chow Yun Fat, and he certainly isn't the second coming of Bruce Lee.
