Brandon Lee (I)' stated in an US Magazine interview shortly after filming completed, that he had filmed a scene where he had to kick open a large oak door. He stated "we filmed this scene where I had to nail this huge oak door, so I go to do the scene and I broke one of my toes. My foot swelled up to the size of a watermelon and we had to end filming for the day." Adding insult to injury, he said, the scene was never included in the film. See more »
Ryan uses the door of his car as a shield, and it gets numerous bullet holes. However, when he pulls away with Jake, the door swings shut, with no bullet holes visible. See more »

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!
