When I heard that Jet Li was going to be a lead in an action movie produced by Joel Silver, I was very excited. Before I give a review, I'm not biased to Jet Li because our crew interviewed him and promoted his movie online. I'm not biased to liking this movie because I have been a big fan of his work. I loved this movie because it features wonderful action scenes, an interesting focus on using the African Americans and Asians working together and it features a lot of cool people in the movie.
The storyline is pretty cool and purists of Jackie Chan, Jet Li and Chow Yun Fat are going to be angry at the US movies because such movies don't do justice to what talent they have demonstrated on the HK movies they have been in and I truly understand that.
Another thing is people might feel the MATRIX style fighting hurts this movie. I don't think so. Personally, some fight scenes are a exaggerated and I agree with that but a lot of the other fight scenes are very awesome such as the scenes in the stairs, the football scene, the fire hose scene...awesome!
Others maybe upset that the interracial relationship was not strong enough and were upset there was no kiss scene between Alliyah and Jet. We asked Jet about that and he said that in the end (without spoiling the movie for you), after a bad situation happens to a family member, should you be kissing a girl you just met. So, Jet had a good reason for that. [Note: You can our interview with Jet Li at AsianConnections.com]
So, however you felt about the movie, to each their own. I really enjoyed it! In fact, at the theater in San Jose/Santa Clara, it was packed and people gave it a standing ovation. I'm happy to see Jet's first debut in a lead role for an English movie.

With Jet Li's second US film, Romeo Must Die, US viewers get to see a bit more of why this guy is so famous in Asia. Following a jailed HK police officer named Han (Li) on his quest to learn the truth about his brother's death. Upon arrival he meets up with Trish (Aaliyah), the love interest. The film is truly a mixed bag. the way it is shot and filmed is truly slick, with a smooth new-style camera and hip visuals. the opening scenes are especially well done. one cannot fault any of the acting, and while most of the actors play their usual roles, they do it very well, so it's a safe bet. the music and sound is also well done, with a good mix of rap/hip-hop and a few moments of techno (the Crystal Method make their movie debut) and some good original scores. no problems here. the movie begins to fall apart with some of its more Matrix-esque fight scenes. while the X-ray effect is cool, the digital jumps and moves look awful. the SFX are truly cruddy and jagged, lacking the smooth effects of the matrix or wire work. i mean, this is Jet Li, not Keanu Reeves. while Keanu did a good job with his kung-fu bits in the matrix, jet li is the wire work master. he does not need bad CGI to make him look good. and especially not CGI that breaks all the laws of physics. all in all, a fun ride. the story is nothing new, though it is well told. Jet and Aaliyah are great together, and there are even some moments of great humor through the movie's dark story. Russell Wong does a good job as Kai, though he is a little under used in the movie. i must say that it will win no awards, but was a good action flick. there are several truly cool moments, and for the most part, one can just turn off their worries and enjoy some decent fights and acting. but i must say it. the title is really bad. it does not fit the movie at all.

Romeo Must Die was an all-in-all great movie. It is basically about a "war" between 2 families fighting for Waterfront property, and Jet Li (Han)and Aaliyah (Trish) somehow ends up meeting in a cab. Jet Li than follows her a lot and from there, their relationship grows. The end reveals surprise. (not really, just from what should have been).The fight scenes were magnificent and somewhat resembled the Matrix.(same creator). The X-ray effect was new to me and pretty cool (shows what happens in the body). Although, compared to another Chinese TV show (Yan Zi Li 3), the fight scenes were a so-so. They don't show China and Hong Kong true fighting skills though. Although the trick over and under the leg with the hose was pretty entertaining. If you're really interested in some gravity-warping fighting, go rent a Chinese ancient movie.

Romeo Must Die is typical of a number of recent action-adventure movies. Fill the screen with lots of special effects, with heavy emphasis on explosions. Raise the decibel level on the sound track. Mix in a lot of jarring hip-hop music, paying scant attention to whether or not the vocals have anything to do with the movie. Give all the bad guys flashy cars to drive, lots of great jewelry to wear and houses to live in that are bigger and grander than those lived in by the CEOs of Fortune 500 companies. Finally, make the villains more likable by implying that tactics such as drug dealing and homicide are the only means certain people have to succeed and that most of them plan to go straight one day soon. The result of all this hocus pocus is that it will hopefully divert the audience so much that it will not realize that the movie has a dumb plot, if it has one at all. Or maybe to make them too dazed and confused to care.
As Romeo Must Die opens, two gangster warlords, one black and one Chinese, are in open warfare with each other. Since each one's fortune will be made by a joint effort to put together a deal with a supposedly legitimate corporation, I never understood the war part, but who needs a plot? The war is just a setup so that Chinese warlord Ch'u Sing's [Henry O] son can get murdered, the obvious suspects being members of the black gang and their leader, Isaak O'Day [Delray Lindo]. This provides an excuse for Sing's other son, Han [Jet Li], to single-handedly break out of a Hong Kong prison, come to America and seek revenge. One day in San Francisco, where the movie is set, Han steals a cab [don't ask] and just happens to rescue Trish O'Day [Aaliyah], Isaak's daughter, who is fleeing one of Dad's bodyguards, one that is supposed to be protecting her.
