No such thing as a bad Jet Li movie.

I used to think that too. But he either has a dumbass choreographer now or his positioning has gotten more and more off as he's gotten older.

I'm not sure I know what you mean by his positioning being off?

Positioning? Stance? The way his body looks and moves in the fight sequences... I'm not sure how the term translates to English...

It's not as elegant/fluid/sexy as it used to be.

Well, it couldn't be any worst than my stance. I'm a terrible martial artist. I'm surprised my sensie kept me as a student. :)

Just because you said not too, I went out and rented Kiss of The Dragon. It wasn't that bad. Although I wouldn't have called it good either. The cimematography was terrible. I think that's the problem you were having with Jet Li. It's not that he was bad, they just zoomed too far into the "action". You couldn't really tell what was happening. Also they would prematurely cut away so you couldn't see an entire sequence of events. That made things confusing too. The plot was contrived, the story non-sense, and the characters poorly developed. Oh wait, it was a bad movie. Sorry. However, Jet Li kicked ass.

Re:
Heh, so that's where you've been for the last while =D

Jet Li didn't kick ass as much as he did before. =)

Yes, I've been flopped on the couch wathcing movies and eating bad Chinese food from a place called "The Happy Garden". In addition to Kiss of The Dragon, I also watched a John Ritter and Jim Bulushi movie, Real Men. It's been a regular festival. Note, Jet Li DID kick ass. It's just that the movie took place in France. With all those french around, anyone would look like a wuss. :)
