Romeo Must DieDirector: Andrzej Bartkowiak, Aaliyah, Anthony Anderson, Edoardo Ballerini
William Shakespeare's streak as the hottest storyteller in Hollywood continues with this modern-dress variation on Romeo and Juliet. In this loose adaptation, Hang Sing (Jet Li) is a former police officer from Hong Kong who comes to the United States following the death of his brother, the leader of an Asian crime ring. Hang Sing discovers that his brother had become involved in a turf battle with an African-American gang, led by Isaak (Delroy Lindo). But his blood lust begins to subside when he falls in love with Isaak's daughter Trish (Aaliyah) and finds himself torn between his affection for her and his desire for justice against the men who killed his brother. Romeo Must Die was the directorial debut of noted cinematographer Andrzej Bartkowiak; the supporting cast includes Russell Wong and Isaiah Washington.

One of the best Jet Li movies ever. Action and Comedy are always a good mix.
you look and watch the action that shows you how you can love and hate
worth watching, but the final kick of Jet's seems a little fake.
I like the scene in Romeo must die the part about Jet playing football what was funny to me was when he told Isaiah Washington ''I like hop 3''. Also the part when he told Aaliyah ''I want the yellow one'' ( meaning ice cream).
Has my favorite actress EVER in it and has a great plot and humor and action. RIP Aaliyah 1979-2001
This was an excellent film fllled with exciting fight sequences and murder mystery on crimes commited against the black and Chinese gangs. It had a surprise ending on who really committed the murders and the reasons why. Jet Li was great and funny and he played the good guy in the movie (not like Lethal Weapon 4 where he played the bad guy).
Jet Li Was so Good On The part when he kicked. And I liked The Part, When He Played Foot Ball. Thats Why I Should Give It 5 stars!
i loved this movie because it was really good and jet li is just amazing actor/martial artist and aaliyah is a beatiful/sexy and very talented this to be her first role she was just great! 5stars-increditable r.i.p aaliyah
