Quotes

Jake Lo: [reviewing his father's military file] How'd you get this?
Karla Withers: Through a friend at Interpol. I called in a favour.
Jake Lo: Well, you better call them back. I don't think you got all of it.
Karla Withers: What were you hoping to find in there?
Jake Lo: I don't know. Nothing.
[shoves it angrily off the table]
Karla Withers: You're welcome. You know, this wasn't an easy thing to get.
Jake Lo: So why'd you do it then?
Karla Withers: Excuse me?

Good movie with great action!
5 June 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

One of Brandon Lee's best films is Rapid Fire! Powers Boothe, Nick Mancuso, Tony Longo, Tzi Ma, Kate Hodge, Al Leong also star! The action is very good in this movie and in fact in My opinion its some of the neatest fighting action in a movie! The music is by composer Christopher Young which it is a very different score! The acting in the film is solid. Brandon Lee did a lot in this film and his fights with Tony Long and Al Leong were very good! I think that Lee had a potential to be a huge star because this film proves it! If you like big time action in a film with martial arts and are a fan of Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris, Steven Seagal, Jean Claude Van-Damme, Bolo Yeung, Michel Qissi, and Jet Li and want to see Brandon Lee and Powers Boothe in different performances then Rapid Fire is a good one to watch!
