Kiss of the Dragon

It’s a small world, after all. With this thriller, screenwriter-producer Luc Besson brings together French actor Tcheky Karyo, who was in Besson’s “La Femme Nikita,” with Bridget Fonda, who starred in the English version of that pic, “Point of No Return.” You can be sure there will be heavy Nikita-esque doses of intrigue and action in this film as well, with martial arts superstar Jet Li starring as Liu Jian, a Chinese intelligence officer who gets in over his head when he embarks on a mission so secret even he is unaware of the details. Jian meets up with an American woman forced into prostitution (Fonda) and together, the two of them take on a brutal Frenchman at the heart of a vast conspiracy that implicates Jian in a murder. Directed by Chris Nahon, “Kiss of the Dragon” is rumored to play on elements from Li’s “Fist of Legend” and Besson’s “The Professional,” and it features action choreography by Corey Yuen (“X-Men,” “Romeo Must Die”). Six degrees, indeed.
