You catch Mr. Li in bite-size chunks instead of the family-style helpings in his other work.

Enjoyable.

The movie fills too much of its downtime with silly mawkishness.

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

[Li] shows no screen presence here.

A mess.

It's effective enough.

It's not Shakespeare, but Romeo Must Die is a major kick.
January 1, 2000
The straight-to-video plot of Romeo Must Die may border on the ridiculous, but the fight scenes are knockouts.
January 1, 2000
The film never stops moving, and it's always a pleasure to watch.

Romeo Must Die gets bogged down by looong stretches of substandard, preachy urban violence melodrama.
January 1, 2000
When the film sticks to action, it's on firm ground.
