They`ve got the weapons. They`ve got the posses. And they`ve got no chance against former Hong Kong cop Han Sing.
Gravity-warping martial arts, cool visual effects and an all-star music track combine in this revved-up action movie from producer Joel Silver (The Matrix) and starring Jet Li (Lethal Weapon 4) in his first English-language lead role.
Li plays rough-and-ready Han, who shares an attraction with Trish O`Day (screen-debuting songstress Aaliyah) even though their families are rivals in a fierce Oakland turf battle. The two also share plenty of danger as they try to find the real cause of the blood feud. No gun, no posse? No problem. With Jet Li going to war as only he can, Romeo Must Die is alive and kicking.

Your Opinions and Comments
In a word CRAP.
The story isn`t up to much however and the characters are a bit two dimensional.
Good added value (they include some shots cut from the film by the BBFC) with some in depth documentaries into the making of the stunts in particular.
This film is a Jet Li vehicle but a good one.
At it`s current cheap price (£10?) it`s an essential addition to your library!
The problem is that Jet Li films should contain one thing - lots of action. And the action in this film is very good… there's just not a great deal of it (especially as a precious 30 seconds of it was cut in order to get the 15 certificate).
Overall, not a great film, but worth a look nonetheless.
Picture and sound are truely gorgeous, especially during the fight scenes. Some small signs of unsharpness and grain but not much wrong.
Fantastic extras include music videos and plenty of documentaries
Get it if u can get it cheap otherwise rent it for a good night in
