Plot: Action superstar Jet Li and internationally acclaimed filmmaker Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, The Professional) join forces on this film. This thriller revolves around a Chinese intelligence officer (Li) who goes to Paris on assignment, and becomes embroiled in a deadly conspiracy.

"Kiss of the Dragon" is a vehicle tailored to the talents of Jet Li, who produced the film and came up with its story, in addition to taking the lead role.

Hong Kong martial arts films have always had two main strains, the acrobatic flying through the air that Western audiences sampled in "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," and the fists and kicks of fury championed by Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, and now Jet Li.

The films has two acrobatic action sequences. One involves a pitched battle on one of the bateaux-mouches (tour boats) that travel the Seine, the other has our hero taking on an entire class of martial arts adepts all decked out in their traditional white garments.
