Rush Hour 2 - 2002
This Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker cop comedy is actually the highest grossing film Ziyi has appeared in. She plays the role of Hu Li, an assassin whose weapon of choice is the biggest bomb she can carry. Highlights of her role include looking good, acting crazy, and kicking Chris Tucker's ass. She's great at all three, while Chan and Tucker add the laughs.

He's an all-around filmmaker and he was able to help her with all the action sequences, and he knew what camera angles were best to get the right scene and be close up or far away wide shot. It was just to her in awe and just amazing experience working with somebody that is just so all around experienced and capable.
