Reviews

Liu Jian (Jet Li) is a Chinese government agent who has been sent to France to assist in the arrest of a Chinese heroin smuggler. But when he arrives he is framed for murder by corrupt French police detective Jean-Pierre Richard (Tchéky Karyo) and forced to go on the run in a bid to prove his innocence. When he meets Jessica (Bridget Fonda), a prostitute whose daughter Isabel is being held captive by Richard, Liu offers to get Isabel back if Jessica will help expose Richard's corruption. Jessica agrees and much martial arts mayhem follows.

Having read a few negative comments on US review sites regarding transfer quality of this blu ray title I decided to buy it anyway as it was very cheap on amazon's 3 for 2 offer.

Either the US release is a different transfer or the reviewers do not know what they are talking about. This looks and sounds great!
You have to bear in mind some films have a certain look,(lighting,filming techniques,film stock,post processing etc.) and will not always look as good as Mamma Mia or Die Hard 4.0.

It annoys me when I read 'not much better than upscaled dvd', as it clearly shows the level of understanding the viewer has of high definition and video display equipment in general.
I always make a dvd/bd comparison on many different scenes and even different days, and here find once again that the blu ray clearly outshines the dvd, with no visible flaws present.

O.K. it is what it is, a formulaic Jet Li vehicle pitting him up against a corrupt police department boss, played by Tcheky Karyo from Nikita [Blu-ray] [1990.
It also has some most impressive fight sequences early on in, you guessed it, a large restaurant kitchen, (the Luc Besson touch shows!).

The (uninspired) extras are pared down from the original dvd, although I feel the upgrade to 1080p/DTS-MA outweighs that.

Not a classic like Leon: The Professional [DVD] [1995] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] but still a fun film taken on it's own terms.
This is all reflected in the 4 star rating.

Saw this in the movies. Loved Jet Li since then, though he has been surpassed by another wizard of martial arts.

However for me this is up there with Fist of Legend and Fearless and I think it is a good film and probably his best western made film. Also the actor that was playing his nemesis has become, for my mind, one of the greatest and understated actors of his time, though I can never remember his name! Tchaikyo ... the French Guy!! lol.

Picture quality is spot on too.

Kiss of the dragon is one of the best movies in which Jet Li appears. Beside the fact that his martial arts are top nodge it is also a movie with a story. The story takes place in Paris. It is nice to see Jet Li operate in the context of that city. The scenes in the hotel and on the boat are extraordinary. The specific scene with the billiard ball is a must see for every martial arts fan.
THe Kiss of the Dragon can also be seen in other films. Kill Bill 2 uses the same theme in the end.
What I didnot like about the blue ray was the fact that it didnot have dutch subtitles included.
Why don't we put the whole range of European Languages on the DVD. Perhaps the European Commission must state that all possible documents should be seen or read by every citizin :-)

I love Jet Li's movies as I own a few, and this movie is no exception, it has a brilliant story and good acting.
