About the Movie

International action-star Jet Li ("Lethal Weapon 4") stars in this hi-octane thriller from the producer of blockbusters "The Matrix" and the "Lethal Weapon" franchise. While hunting down his brother's murderer, he falls in love with the daughter of a rival crime boss who is his prime suspect. A modern take on the classic "Romeo and Juliet" co-starring hip hop star Aaliyah Haughton (one of 1999 Teen People Magazine's "21 Hottest Stars Under 21"), Delroy Lindo ("Ransom," "The Cider House Rules"), Isaiah Washington ("Out of Sight") and rapper DMX.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: You catch Mr. Li in bite-size chunks instead of the family-style helpings in his other work. – Elvis Mitchell, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Straight-ahead action would have been more than sufficient. – Bob Graham, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 18, 2008

Rotten: [Li's] scenes are so clearly computer-aided that his moves are about as impressive as Bugs Bunny doing the same. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Sep 10, 2009

Rotten: Romeo Must Die gets bogged down by looong stretches of substandard, preachy urban violence melodrama. – Kevin Maynard, Mr. Showbiz, Jun 24, 2010
