Martial arts and cinema action superstar Jet Li and visionary filmmaker Luc Besson (THE PROFESSIONAL, THE FIFTH ELEMENT) join forces in KISS OF THE DRAGON.

Liu Jiuan (Jet Li), China's top government agent, travels from Shanghai to Paris to carry out a top secret mission. He is in Paris to assist Jean-Pierre Richard (Tcheky Karyo), an unorthodox police official with a small army to back him up. Unfortunately the mission goes terribly wrong as Liu is betrayed by the man he has been sent to help.

Events spiral out of control as Liu is forced to go on the run in a city he is not familiar with, when he becomes embroiled in a vast and deadly conspiracy, accused of a murder he didn't commit. With nowhere to turn, Liu is thrown together with an American woman Jessica (Bridget Fonda), who after being forced into prostitution by Jean-Pierre Richard, teams up with Liu.

Planning their fight to escape from the clutches of the ruthless and cunning Jean-Pierre Richard, Liu makes a promise to Jessica that could compromise his career - and even his life!
