      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      In his second Hollywood movie, Jet Li impresses. Unfortunately, when he's not on screen, the movie slows to a crawl. Though there's some spark between Jet and Aaliyah, there isn't any threat of a fire. And as impressive as the action sequences are, some critics feel they are over-edited.

      Lisa Schwarzbaum Entertainment Weekly Rated: B- Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Nell Minow Common Sense Media This hip-hop Romeo and Juliet is awful. Rated: 1/5 Dec 28, 2010 Full Review Geoff Andrew Time Out slick, Joel Silver-produced action movie with a borderline straight to video feel. Feb 9, 2006 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...sporadically engaging yet predominantly tiresome... Rated: 1.5/4 Jan 14, 2023 Full Review Tony Black Cultural Conversation Less star-crossed lovers, more impossible physics. Rated: 2/5 Feb 16, 2021 Full Review Leigh Paatsch Herald Sun (Australia) When Jet leaps two metres in the air and unleashes 360 degrees worth of kicks to eight empty heads, the hi-tech fakery leaves him looking about as dangerous as Wreck-It Ralph.

      Laurie S Too many cliches, too much use of wires, silly stunt times, all make this a 2 star. There's excellent directors, there's good diectors and there's mediocre ones, and this is one of the latter. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 06/10/23 Full Review Mitchell B This flim was ok, but to be honest could have been better. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/11/23 Full Review Chris R How could you not like this movie? It's great at what it is..a kung fu ass kickin easy going half comedy. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/29/22 Full Review Jayden J This Movie Is Amazing Aaliyah shines in the role and the fight scenes are incredible Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/28/22 Full Review Audience Member Solid action flick with some rom-com and gangster elements mixed in for good measure. robust and well-directed fight choreography. Lots of new (at the time) ideas when it comes to the fights. Cool stuff. Loved the soundtrack too. Character progression is minimal, showing one of the few flaws this film has. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Funny and action-packed. I love Jet Li!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Read all reviews
