Trivia

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.

THE SON ALSO RISES.
26 August 1999 | by (CARDIFF , WALES) – See all my reviews

Brandon Lee is nothing short of electric in this movie and I suspect that had he lived he would have alternated movies like this with more esoteric fare like "THE CROW." He had the potential to be a bigger star than his father as he was a better actor and was more vulnerable in his portrayal of a fighting hero therefore making him appeal to both sexes.Women tend not to be great Bruce Lee fans. The action in this movie is explosive and well choreographed and for this credit should go to Lee's friend Jeff Imada whose name you will find on the credits of most movies and t.v.shows that feature martial arts action.Powers Boothe is his usual reliable self in his cop role and if faults are to be found with "RAPID FIRE" they are that the villains are not memorable nor do they offer a great threat to Lee and the leading lady is just used as window dressing.However,Dwight Little as director delivers the goods here and the film is an good companion piece to his exhilarating Steven Seagal actioner "MARKED FOR DEATH." made the previous year.
