In this modern day Romeo and Juliet, kung fu action star Jet Li plays Romeo to hip-hop singer, Aaliyah Haughton's Juliet. Li is an ex-cop investigating the murder of his brother, who had ties with the Chinese mafia in America. Aaliyah plays the daughter of the American mob boss. Neither side approves of their romance, so, obviously, kung fu action ensues, with a soundtrack by Aaliyah. Written by

Not trying to win Oscars here but it is kick ass fun.
Aaliyah's best acting performance by far in her short life, Washington, Lindo and even Anthony Edwards helped Aaliyah's performance with great support and I must say DMX is not bad for a rapper/actor!!!
Jet Li was Jet Li! Dialogue is bad often awful but the guy can really perform his martial arts!
Romeo Must Die isn't the best Shakespeare adaptation but it is what it is and that is a good martial arts/love/action film
