We gave it a B-

Even for a kick flick, Kiss of the Dragon‘s plot is laughably bad. Li (as some sort of acupuncture-happy secret agent) and Fonda (as a hooker with a heart of gold) must save his video cassette and her daughter. Whatever. You don’t watch a movie like this for plot or to ask questions like, What is a kung fu academy doing in the middle of a French police station anyway? Li is a marvel, fighting with precision and intensity in a film that is otherwise far from marvelous.
