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)

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.

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!

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.

I really like this movie, it's got a combination of humor, drama and some really nice action scenes. It's for sure a great martial art movie with espionage in it as well. So given all the things involved it's not just a movie for some stereo type knuckle head guy but for martial art enthusiasts and something you can watch with your significant other. If you're not into action and get easily offended then I wouldn't recommend it, like my grandmother I know wouldn't like this movie. Again though, it does have drama and humor in it so it had the ability to appeal to wide audience, the espionage in it could use work so if you are in it for that you will be disappointed, but that aside still some amazing work from jet li in some action packed stunts he performs.
