Romeo Must Die

Martial Arts action man Jet Li plays an ex-cop who escapes from a Chinese prison after his brother is killed in US-based gang fighting.

Romeo must Die is, you guessed it, a modern-day reworking of the old Boy and Girl from warring families story. In this case, he is the son of a Chinese crime leader, and she is the daughter of a Black crime leader. Both have rejected their parents' lives of crime, but are embroiled in a dangerous, fast packed investigation into a rash of gang-related deaths.

Raised from the average by the charm of the leads, especially Jet Li.
