Brandon Lee originally wanted Hong Kong director John Woo to direct the film. however, the studio wanted a martial arts film rather than the type of films that Woo made. The director role then went to Dwight H. Little. However there are stylish homages in & out to "The Killer"(1989), "A Better Tomorrow", & "Hard Boiled" directed by John Woo as well as "Legacy Of Rage" Brandon Lee's only film made in Hong Kong directed by Ronny Yu.

This was Brandon Lee's second american made movie (Showdown In Little Tokyo was the first) and the film where you could see Brandon was starting his ascent up the action hero ladder. With each film Brandon's martial arts skills improved and in this movie he really shines. Not to mention his acting ability as well. He proved in this movie that he had what it takes to be a star. He incorporated some Hong Kong style action similar to Jackie Chan's films into this movie. An example is a terrific sequence in a small apartment where Lee takes on several bad guys armed with guns and he takes them out with his hands, feet, kitchen utensils, refrigerator doors, etc. Powers Boothe also does a great job as tired cop and Nick Mancuso plays the main villain very superb. The Crow was Brandon Lee's best movie but Rapid Fire displays his fighting skills the best. Definitely a must for action fans!
