Romeo Must Die

Jays Rating:
Actors: /

A must see film for all you Kung Fu fans and martial arts junkies is Romeo Must Die. Two Mafia families, Asian and African American, tolerate each other while protecting their respective territory. Tensions rise when Po Sing, the youngest son of an Asian Mafia leader is brutally murdered. When word of Po’s death reaches his older brother Han (Jet Li) imprisoned in China, he is determined to find his brother’s killer. He attacks a guard knowing he’ll be restrained, taken to an isolation cell and beaten. When he is finally hung upside down by one leg, he knocks out all of the guards, and escapes. (I know what you’re thinking: If this was all it took to break out, why didn’t he do it before?) After he escapes, he accidentally meets Trish O’Day (Aaliyah) the daughter of the rival gang boss. They become friends and try to figure out why members of each of their families are being randomly killed. This is a good action movie, the karate scenes are outrageous. Of course all I heard were a few bones breaking and a hiieeyah. This film is definitely a crowd pleaser, but it just wasn’t good enough to receive anything higher than a C rating.

This movie has been given an R rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
