Critic Reviews of "The Defender"
TV GuideJuly 28, 2008
Li exudes enough magnetism to make the sexual banter with his fair damsel credible, and enough athletic prowess to simultaneously power this and several other vehicles.
DVDLaserJuly 28, 2008
The story is utterly predictable, but the action scenes are creative and Li exudes excitement every time the camera turns to him -- there is no wonder at all why Chung's character is willing to dump all her riches to be in his arms.

Was good as Bodyguard from Beijing
NetflixNovember 07, 2002
All this is made up for by the sheer visceral pleasure of Jet Li's charisma.
Austin ChronicleJanuary 01, 2000
Lively, unpretentious fun.
