A drama based on an ancient Chinese proverb that breaks life down into four emotional cornerstones: happiness, pleasure, sorrow and love. A businessman bets his life on a horse race; a gangster sees the future; a pop star falls prey to a crime boss; a doctor must save the love of his life.

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

In one scene, Han breaks into apartment number 2600 by picking the lock. The number 2600 comes from Computer Hacking subculture, and is a symbol for the type of technical insight involved in circumventing security measures (such as picking a lock). See more »
When entering the garage, Han deactivates the car alarm to find the car (light goes on). Immediately after that the main character triggers the alarm again (lights again). In cheap alarms, this might reactivate the alarm, but in other models, this unlocks the passenger door (and a third activation might open the trunk). Since he in fact entered through the passenger door, this is what happened. See more »
Mr Sing you have my deepest, deepest condolences.
What happened to your son was tragic Mr Sing, very unnecessary. I want you to know i'll be looking into this myself personally.
You will forgive me if I'm not easily moved.
Mr Sing... with all due respect, there is no way in the world that anybody in my camp would be foolish enough to touch your family, any more than anybody in your camp would be stupid enough to touch mine. It just wouldn't happen.
Our business venture will continue.

jet Li rocks, and this film was great. Sure, it's silly, but it's never boring, there are some slick fight scenes, and the soundtrack is pretty neat. It manages to be a romantic film without being sappy and stupid, it manages to be an action film where the action rocks but isn't too over-the-top, and it manages to make good use of the Shakesphere story, ROMEO AND JULIET while still respecting the themes and the humor. Generally, the film is pretty silly. The acting isn't particularly good, the characters are two dimensional, the plot holes are numerous, and events are sometimes quite predictable. However, I don't regret watching it. I was entertained and was satisfied by the film as a whole. It worked really well. If you're looking for a good film that doesn't require a lot of thought and investment from the viewer but is at least entertaining and energetic, ROMERO MUST DIE is a good film to check out.
