    Joe MorgensternWall Street Journal

    Mr. Li is a master not only of martial arts, but of composure; no one does nothing better. The film itself is no great shakes.

    Kiss of the Dragon is a straight-ahead star vehicle for the trim and terse Li, whose steady gaze and fist-flying ways are tempered by a gentlemanly mien. show more

    It is not merely a thriller but a shocker. It will separate hard-core Jet Li followers from the fair-weather fans. show more
