The death of Han Sing's little brother catapults him out of a Hong Kong jail to the Oakland-San Francisco waterfront, where he vows to find his brother's killers. His quest lands him in the middle of a three-way deal between Chinese, Black and White "businessmen" who will stop at nothing to create a new money-making stadium. Han finds help from Trish, a woman with close connections to the Black mob, and together they work to find their brothers' killers.
In this modern day Romeo and Juliet, kung fu action star Jet Li plays Romeo to hip-hop singer, Aaliyah Haughton's Juliet. Li is an ex-cop investigating the murder of his brother, who had ties with the Chinese mafia in America. Aaliyah plays the daughter of the American mob boss. Neither side approves of their romance, so, obviously, kung fu action ensues, with a soundtrack by Aaliyah.
+) The fight scenes are great and Jet Li is pretty much the star of this movie. The guy has always been a great "martial artist" and his fights scenes are nice. People may be put off by the many uses of wires but Jet Li has always been about putting on entertaining fight scenes as opposed to more realistic fight scenes.
+)Russel Wong is also very good and is a cool villain. He looks like an Asian James Bond in a way.
+)Aaliyah is ok too, but the best actor in this movie is Isaiah Washing, Russel Wong,Delroy Lindo, Anthony Anderson, and Henry O
+) Some of the comedy is very funny
~ The story is very silly but at the same time they take it so serious. It is about two companies who are trying to buy all the land so that they can then sell it to this guy in Canada who will then turned it into a football field for the NFL.
~The modern day "Romeo and Juliet" story is also very silly
Good movie to watch for the fight scenes. Don't expect any "Oscar" winning filming here. This is an action movie and it works. Despite the name of the movie, I understood the moment I saw that Jet Li would be in it for his fighting skills that this movie would not be string on plot. Face it, he's a decent actor, but the only movies in which he starred which had good, developed plots, were never released in the USA. I was right. While the background premise is good, there was far too much focus on the African-American gang compared to the very little focus on the Asian gang. As a result, some aspects of the plot seemed quite forced and somewhat unconvincing.
Aside from the plot, I enjoyed this film enormously. Both Jet Li and Aaliyah give it their best, and while there is no real conception of romance, there is a lot of small, warm, pervading impressions of friendship which I found to be quite charming. Anthony Anderson was hilarious and while Russel Wong could have benefited from much more screentime, he played his part with great style.
I don't think that I need to say much about the fight scenes. In two words, incredibly choreographed. Yes, it's true, Jet Li does defy a few natural laws of physics, namely momentum and gravity, but at that point you should already be sucked into the film and will forgive anything in the name of martial arts. If you won't, then you've already decided that you despise the film and there's no point in talking about it.
To sum everything up, this movie is meant to be entirely non-serious. It is only a movie, after all. If you go to this film expecting to see a passionate and developed love story, then you will be sadly disappointed. If, on the other hand, you go, leave your dignity and sophisticated movie-critic alternate personality on the doorstep, and walk in solely to be entertained, you will walk out more than satisfied and in immensely good humor. (8/10) Just don't think about what's going on, and you should be OK. Several action scenes were censored for the British BBFC 15 version: fighting scenes and shootouts. a5c7b9f00b
