Editorial Reviews

Martial arts genius Jet Li explodes onto the screen with an intensity not seen since Bruce Lee. "Kiss of the Dragon" is not merely a thriller but a shocker. (San Francisco Chronicle) China's top secret agent visits Paris on a pleasure trip only to encounter government espionage at the highest level. "Li's action sequences are like an oil fire, spilling from one room into the next and lighing up in the interiors with heat and wreakage"! (The New York Times)

5.0 out of 5 stars Li and Fonda shine in this plot-driven action thriller October 11, 2003
Format:DVD
I find myself finally indulging my long-nascent love for martial arts movies, and this road has taken me rather directly from Bruce Lee and the Bruceploitation films of the 70s and early 80s to Jet Li, whom I consider to be the most worthy successor to Bruce Lee working today. I won't even compare him to the Dragon because he is definitely his own man, one steeply trained in both the physical and philosophical ways of the martial arts. He has a compact yet powerful, no-nonsense approach to his fight scenes, and what you get is pretty much the real deal - no invisible cables, no stuntman, no fakery, and most importantly no cheesiness. Kiss of the Dragon is my first Jet Li film, and I am glad to say that I was in no way disappointed. There may not be as much fighting in this film as you might find elsewhere, but this is by no means a bad thing. This film revolves around the story and main characters, and the forging of such a strong plot- makes the fight scenes, when they come, all the more enjoyable. Long gone are the days when martial arts movies had weak or nonexistent plots serving no other purpose than to move the film from one fight to the next.
Kiss of the Dragon is set in France, which is not your typical setting for kung fu action. Jet Li plays a Chinese cop named Liu Jian, one of China's best, sent to France to help the authorities there nab a Chinese drug dealer. The expected drug bust goes as far removed from planned as can be (at least from Liu Jian's point of view). The whole thing was a set-up by the French police chief (played to the despicable max by Tcheky Karyo), leaving Liu Juan on the run and accused of murder. Liu Juan must evade the authorities and somehow get the proof he needs to put the real bad guy away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid! February 4, 2005
By KDA
Format:DVD
This is the movie that turned me onto Jet Li. Still to this day, I say this is his best movie. Jet has done around 30 films, mostly overseas, but none have displayed the perfect combination of story and action. Jet's remake of Bruce Lee's "Fist of Fury" ("Fist of Legend") has superb straightforward martial arts, but the story pales in comparison to "Kiss." "My Father Is A Hero" had a nice story, but it could have used a few more fight scenes to spruce it up, plus the main villain was cheesy sporting a pair of sunglasses. The recent "Hero" (Not the "Father is my Hero"), well...was beautiful, but was more of an art/fantasy film. "Kiss" is raw and a "heavy-subtle" that balances nicely.

The fight scenes are incredible and full of impact. The story, which carries a very dark tone, never lags. You really feel a sense of hatred towards the main villain and feel for the prostitute. Finally, a martial arts movie where the story isn't ridiculous. There are occasional exaggerated scenes, but in all honesty, they gel well with the flow.

When anyone asks for an action film, I always have recommended this. I also warn them that this action film contains a plot...so don't be surprised. There are not many films out there that pull this off...the one other one that really stands out at the moment is the "Bourne Identity." Only "Kiss" has more martial arts. Love it!

4.0 out of 5 stars WOW, a martial arts movie without wire-works December 1, 2001
Format:DVD
I decided to see this movie when it came out expecting to see what I saw in the usual Jet Li movies, wire-works (some of you kung-fu movie watchers know what I am talking about, but if you don't, wire-works is when the actor or stunt man is suspended in air or swinging on a cable performing unusual fighting moves). Wire-works are cute, but I do not like them because they are slow and take me away from the action most of the time. This movie HAS NO WIRE WORKS in the action sequences. I was so happy, finally a martial arts movie for the new millennium not caught into the new-old trend to hit Hollywood. The martial arts scenes are fast, rough, brutal, and are simply what Bruce Lee fans want to see. There was a fight scene Jet Li had in a dojo that reminded me of Chinese Connection a.k.a. "Fist of Fury".
The story was not bad; it was good for a martial arts action movie. Personally I would have made the movie a bit longer (like 10 or 20 minutes) to make sure people know exactly why things are going on. Its workable but would have been perfect with a little bit of information. The big one in the beginning such as the French investigator and the Chinese drug boss, the movie doesn't tell you their connection exactly but it's implied.
Li is an overly devoted cop, so he doesn't have much to work with until he meets Fonda's character, there his character is not just doing the job but being a character. Fonda's character used to be addicted to drugs and is a forced-to-be prostitute. So her reactions were pretty not bad for Fonda's acting and I thought she did a good job for her given character.
The score is done by Craig Armstrong (from Massive Attack), which is cool of techno/orchestra. Also there are some hip-hop songs thrown in two of the fight scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars JET LI IS JUST TOO COOL! April 10, 2002
Format:DVD
I have been a fan of Jet Li for a long time and his first American/english speaking movies like Lethal Weapon 4 and Romeo Must Die were not too bad but they didn't quite show Jet's true speed and ability....and then Kiss Of the Dragon came out and ended all that. This is tied with Fist of Legend as my all time favorite Jet Li movie. He completely goes all out in the fighting in this movie using no tricks at all but instead just his own style of lighting fast kung fu. What also makes this movie good is that it was produced by Luc Besson who's top cameraman directed this and did a phenomenal job. It should also be said that for a man who has only been speaking English for a handful of years, Jet's english is so fluent you could never tell. He really shows that he can act in this which also surprised me. So if you want a good story, smooth style, and hardcore insane martial arts get this movie, believe me you will enjoy it.
