Kiss of the Dragon
Kiss of the Dragon is a 2001 action film starring Jet Li, Tchéky Karyo and Bridget Fonda. There is relatively little wire work, unusual for a modern kung fu film, resulting in some great fight scenes, especially between Jet Li and Cyril Raffaelli, who plays a henchman. Despite Li's character being a good police officer and a surprisingly good portrayal of the Communist Chinese government, this film was still banned in the People's Republic of China, a fact that Li was not very happy about.
The following weapons are used in Kiss of the Dragon:
FN Model 1900 (Chinese copy)
Liu Jian (Jet Li) smuggles a Chinese made copy of the FN Model 1900, .32 ACP into France, which was later used to frame him.
Liu Jian loads his FN M1900.

Could not ask for a better shot

A rubber Beretta 92FS is obviously used when Liu Jian kicks one from one henchman's hand into the face of another.
It's rubber, but that's still got to hurt.
One of Richard's men carries a nickel-plated M1911-type pistol during the chase on the boat.
Rock Island Armory M1911A1 Pistol that was bright nickel plated by the owner (with Pearl grips) - .45 ACP.
Manurhin MR-73 Gendarmerie

This shot shows the hammer.
A few Mini Uzis were seen in the hands of Richard's men. The pilot (Paul Barrett) carries two tricked out ones with stainless finish and scopes.
Mini Uzi SMG with stock folded - 9mm
Scary looking, but you don't need to be a fast runner like Jet Li to dodge the bullets from this stupid setup
Richard fires wildly at Liu Jian.
Max (John Forgeham) had a Ruger MP9 in the weapons stash in his car.

French police can be seen with a Ruger AC556K rifle.

SIG SG 552
Max (John Forgeham) uses a SIG SG 552 with a scope and an under barrel grenade launcher.
French police carry an AR-15-type rifle. It's not very clear, but it has a forward assist and A2-style handguards.
M16A1 with A2 style handguards - 5.56x45mm. Putting the distinctive A2 handguards on the older rifle was a method used by Movie/TV armorers to simulate A2 rifles when M16A1s were the only ones available. The same thing has been done vice-versa, Using M16A2's with A1 handguards for Vietnam War B Movies.
The bigger twin carries several grenades of an unknown type. Richard uses one to try to kill Liu Jian. A CGI model is used when Liu Jian tosses it back into the sleeve of a henchman. (In frame-by-frame, it actually disappears for a few frames.)
He carries a lot of grenades for a cop, much less a plainclothes cop.
Under barrel Grenade Launcher
Max's (John Forgeham) SG 552 has an unknown under barrel grenade launcher. It might be a SIG GL 5040. It could be a mockup as it is never fired.
Train Station Gun Stash
Numerous weapons are seen in the gun stash at the train station. Liu Jian can't use it however, as two cops see it the same time he does.
How did they get a dozen rifles and shotguns to the train station in the first place? Or how did they expect anyone to get it out of there?
