Overview

Chris Nahon directs international action superstar Jet Li in Kiss of the Dragon which comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that fails to preserve the original theatrical aspect ratio of the film. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround, while a Spanish soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Surround as well. Subtitles are accessible in both of those languages. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by the star, the director, and female lead Bridget Fonda; a storyboard to film comparison; the theatrical trailer; a featurette about Jet Li; and a making-of featurette. This is a fine disc for what it is, but a different edition of this film is available with a widescreen transfer and the same special features. That edition is preferable to this one.

This could possibly be the best martial arts film ever made. Enjoy an hour and thirty eight minutes of intense, hard hitting martial arts action mixed with hardcore rap music that goes perfectly with the fighting scenes. Jet Li and Bridget Fonda are the perfect pair for those rolls. I've seen this movie about five times now and I still can't get enough of it. If you're a fan of martial arts films. Then you've no excuse not to see this movie.

Just about the best Martial Arts movie ever made second to Drunken Master but this is by far the best Jet Li movie ever. With great backround music for the fight scenes. 5 Stars all the way!!!!!!
