Format: DVD
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.

There seems to be several films regarding this one. A story about corruption and property deals, a story about fathers and their children, a tentative Romeo and Juliet romance and of course martial arts and guns.

For those who like cross-culture, "Romeo Must Die", is for you! Jet Li who was fresh from "Lethal Weapon 4" really delivers in this action-packed movie. Playing Han was a big one for him. Aaliyah(1979-2001), the R&B sensation really got her acting chops in gear playing the alluring Trish O'Day, who is being shadowed by the bumbling Maurice, played by the funny, Anthony Anderson, but I personally would hoped for more of Michael Wong and less of Anthony Anderson (his constant 'Dim Sum' refrain being quite irritating) but the actors act, the plot moves and the film is enjoyable enough.

I'd enjoyed the X-ray effects of the movie whenever a fight was going to happen. I liked the part when Han refused to a fight a woman, he used Trish to fight her with. It looked more of a swing dance to me. Since Trish's words backed him up, the enemy was impaled through the heart. And after the final fight, Trish's father (Delroy Lindo), wanted to meet Han for himself, and I 'm glad he got that chance, I think it was silly for him to demand a handshake from him, but hey, he wanted to who the "cat" was, and make sure he did. Han never declined any offer only to know who the troublemaker behind the "war" was.

Before anyone remember seeing Aaliyah in "Queen of the Damned" (which I personal dislike), look into this film first. I Love Jet Li, but this film is not as good as 'Kiss of the Dragon' but better than 'The One' and 'Cradle 2 the Grave' but inferior to Jet Li's Hong Kong movies.

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.
