Each one of these films is memorable. Kiss of the Dragon for the terrific performance from the main villain, Bulletproof Monk for its daft title and tongue in cheek performance from the main hero and Marked for Death (as long as you ignore plastic Mr Seagal) for a fab turn from Basil Wallace, as Screwface. I and I like 'is hactin'; me needed a Red Stripe afterwards!

A great value package!

Wow,what can i say,he's fast and he's fit in more ways than one.invinsible like steven segal and a master of his art like bruce lee,but with his own unique style,and never ceases to amaze, jet li kicks butt again.i really enjoyed this movie with a combination of action and some good fight scenes.sometimes a really good action film can be ruined with over the top humour which just makes it silly,but this film had small amounts of humour which made it entertaining and didn't spoil the movie.also in the special features(the jet li technique/fight philosophy),you get to listen to the man himself,which is a plus. it was good to see one of his films where he had plenty of lines,he can act as well as kick butt! at the same time when he is given the chance.so if you like action/martial arts and are a jet li fan,its worth watching this one.

Out of all the english speaking flims that Martial arts star Jet Li has done upon writing this review, (that including Cradle 2 the Grave) Kiss of the Dragon has to be the best of the lot.
KOD sreenplay was done by acclaimed French director Luc Besson (Leon, Fifth Element) who also was one of the producers as well and you can tell this by the moody, gritty, stylish feel which most his work has.
The story, first conceived by Li himself, is basically about a Chinese Government agent (played by Li) who is sent to Paris on a serect mission to assit the French police. But things go wrong and Li is double cross by the police, lead by Tcheky Karyo. From then on its a chase to clear his name.
While the story has been done a million times before, you don't really notice it due to the fast-paced sreenplay by Besson and the hard hitting action scenes.
The action scenes are all choreographed by Corey Yeun (director of a few Hong Kong flims featuring Jet Li like 'Bodyguard from Beijing') and they are all quite slick, managing to show off Li's incredible speed. For a 'modern day' set flim ,KOD manged to have just the right balance so you feel these moves that Li's pulling off, can be done in real life.
But a problem I do have is sometimes; the fight scenes are directed too close. In most Hong Kong Martial arts flims, the action is panned out so you get to see the whole scene (think Matrix's Dojo fight scene with Reeves & Fishburne) and in KOD their just too close, meaning fights may get confusing.
While most Jet Li fans don't see his flims for his acting ability, he doesn't do a bad job in KOD. Portraying a calm & understated persona in the flim and flexing his english speaking skills more than his previous outing in Romeo Must Die. Tcheky Karyo is OK as the bad guy but too frequently his acting goes over the top as his character verges on pantomime dame. Bridget Fonda, the only main female character in the whole movie is completely underused, which is a shame.
Overall a highly watchable Martial arts thriller with plenty going for it. Its fast paced, has nice set pieces, reasonable acting, nice hip hop-ish sound track and it doesn't make you think too much.
For People looking for a better Jet Li experience, try his old Hong Kong flicks like 'Once a upon a time in China' series, 'Fist of Legend', 'The Tai Chi Master' etc.

HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICEon 6 March 2014
"Kiss Of The Dragon" features the usual mixture of Jet Li Martial Arts mayhem and a bad-guy body count that's satisfyingly large.

However - UK fans should note that despite it's dirt-cheap price across the way - the 'US' BLU RAY on 20th Century Fox is REGION A LOCKED - so it won't play on our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' (which few are).

Buy the UK issue instead – it’s also available for a peanuts amount of money - it's a looker on the format - and has the fab Bridget Fonda looking cute enough to engender marriage proposals...
