Romeo Must Die

release year: 2000
genre: action
viewing setting: home DVD, 9/13/00
what I expected: no idea
what I got: good fighting scenes connected by contrived, sometimes aimless plot

synopsis: Black gangsters and Hong Kong gangsters have a turf war, with the latter's best fighter falling for the former's leader's daughter.

impressions: It's just like I said: incredible fight scenes, with the parts between being only marginally entertaining. I could have done without the rap soundtrack.

acting: Pretty good, actually, on all counts.

final word: You should see this once, if only for the awesome fight scenes.

rating: C
