Anyone with me this was one of the coldest movies to come out IMHO. Especially the last fight scene with the "twins"

In my opinion this is one of the greatest modern martial arts films that I have ever seen.

The smaller guy of the 'twins' is actually a great stuntman. His abilities are on par with Tony Jaa to be honest.

Not only is he a well-trained MA, he's also a "traceur", or parkour practitioner.

You should've seen the movie District B13, a french movie. Great movie.

Yup, nice flick. I thought the dialogues were so-so, but the version I saw was dubbed in French, so I guess that’s the reason.
My fellow countryman Tcheky Karyo always makes for a great villain…

B13 was good too. France doesn’t produces that many action movies, and even less GOOD action movies; so it came as quite a pleasant surprise (even though I thought parts of the scenario were a bit lame).

Actually, methinks French and British actors are taking over all the good parts in movies these days.

Christian Bale, Daniel Craig, Gerard Butler to name a few British. Jean Reno, Vincent Cassel, Tcheky Karyo, Cyril Raffaelli are some really good actors hailing from France.

At least he left us with "Fearless" and that new flick "WAR" looks nice too.

Really? I remember that movie from when I was younger and before I studied FMA and I thought the same thing. I saw it recently and thought it was not so hot.

The fight scene in "Kiss of the Dragon" was superb! Very straight to the point techniques. Great movie, as are most of his. Loved "The One"
