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.

The main problem with the the story: it's very weak, and seems to exist mainly as a vehicle to attach all the fight scenes in a string.

Li's fight scenes are amazing and there honestly shouldn't be anybody going to see this film for any other reason.

You certainly could do worse than this very loose and limber action-thriller.

The best scenes mesh together the kind of super-gymnastic moves and dotty fun which would make Jackie Chan go green.

The reason to sit through [Romeo Must Die's] uninspired, formulaic moves ... is its half-dozen spectacular fight sequences.

A charming (yes!) action movie in which a familiar gang-war scenario gets juiced up with innovative, wittily choreographed fight scenes.
