Kiss of the Dragon Movie Review

Another film from the past. This one is about a prostitute and a cop. Basically, the storyline is as scripted to a karate movie as it gets. The main character Chinese cop Jet Li who has been framed by French cops in France.

This movie had all of the stereotypical bad guys. The heartless leader, his best friend who just tears into people with guns, the pimp, the big strong black guy, and two brothers who look like twins. There is something about the French that makes them fail to be hardcore but just kind of snobby and rude.

The lead character is a cop with nothing in his life except for his dedication to his job. I really have never heard of overly dedicated cops. I wander if cops watch these movie and think, "I hate that guy he’s just like Johnson. Johnson’s like oh it’s got be by the book all the time but is always causing extreme damage to the city. I’d like to smack that guy." From my knowledge cops can’t even shoot a criminal firing back at them without getting in trouble.

The movie is missing the superior officer that doesn’t get along with the super cop. The movie does have a hooker, who is only guilty of circumstance, is being blackmailed into prostitution and truly does have a good heart. She really just wants to do the right thing.

Well some of the action sequences are really good. The movie is corny but so are most action flicks. That doesn’t stop me or most other guys from liking them. If you are into action and this is one you haven’t seen rent the DVD. It is short of being good enough to add to the collection but still entertaining. I remember this film being so much better so I bought the DVD.
