Kiss of the Dragon(2001) and xXx(2002)movie
1.Kiss of the Dragon is a 2001 action film, directed by Chris Nahon and starring Jet Li. The film was made in response to Li's fans requesting more realistic fight scenes, and is notable as most of the action sequences did not use CGI or wire work; only two scenes required CGI enhancement and only one scene involved wire work. Wire work was also added to one of the last fight sequences between Li and Cyril Raffaelli, only to add clarity to Raffaelli's kicks, as he was moving too fast for the camera. Nahon was also required to slow down this fight scene, as both Li and Raffaelli moved too quickly to be captured clearly at normal recording speed. The film is actually based on a story by Li.click here for more info
2.xXx, pronounced "Triple X", is a 2002 action film starring Vin Diesel in the lead role as Xander Cage, a thrill seeking extreme sports enthusiast, stuntman and rebellious anarchist turned reluctant spy for the National Security Agency who is sent on a dangerous mission to infiltrate a group of potential terrorists in Eastern Europe. xXx also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Marton Csokas, Asia Argento, Michael Roof, Leila Arcieri, Tom Everett and Danny Trejo.
xXx was written by Rich Wilkes, directed by Rob Cohen (who also directed Diesel in 2001's The Fast and the Furious), and produced by Neal H. Moritz for Revolution Studios. It was distributed by Columbia Pictures. The film featured a notable contemporary rock music soundtrack, mostly featuring heavy metal. Rammstein provided some of the music and even featured in the film in one scene. The soundtrack album also features Queens of the Stone Age, Drowning Pool, Hatebreed and others, and some artists of different genres such as Nelly, Lil' Wayne, N*E*R*D, Orbital and Moby.click here for more info
