Film review:- Kiss of the Dragon

Directed by Chris Nahon this film's tag line is "Kiss Fear Goodbye".  The film is set in France and has a 007 feel to it in places.  It might be because it involves a Chinese intelligence officer who goes to Paris on assignment only to become embroiled in a deadly conspiracy, with a French Gendarme.  The action is also very bloody and graphically violent.  This film is an action-packed must see, if you like marshal art, that is.  It is also a good turning point for Li's seeing him return to his best form that has been lacking recently.
