Director Richard Donner, in his "Leathal Weapon 4" commentary track, mentions they had to slow down some the footage in post, Jet Li was moving too quickly in his fight scenes. Whereas in "Kiss Of The Dragon," nothing was slowed down, nor was he asked to slow down during the choreography, he really is as fast as he looks on screen.
Yourselves? Are you fan of Jet Li, your favorite/s from his movies?
Yeah his speed is amazing, I'm a big fan, seen about 15 of his movies and plan to see many more. My faves are:
War (or Rogue Assassin)
Kiss Of The Dragon
Bruce Lee was told to slow down for camera too.
The Ip Man movies I've watched recently have made me now believe that Donnie Yen is just as fast as Jet Li.
