Keong comes from Hong Kong to visit New York for his uncle's wedding. His uncle runs a market in the Bronx and Keong offers to help out while Uncle is on his honeymoon. During his stay in the Bronx, Keong befriends a neighbor kid and beats up some neighborhood thugs who cause problems at the market. Meanwhile, one of those petty thugs in the local gang stumbles into a criminal situation way over his head. Blinded by greed, his involvement draws his gang, the kid, Keong, and the whole neighborhood into a deadly crossfire. When the lazy cops fail to successfully resolve matters, Keong takes things into his own hands. Needless to say, much spectacular kung-fu and outrageous action sequences follow.... Written by

This movie is spectacular. Jackie Chan going to the Bronx. And man, it's a zoo out there. HAHAHAHAHA!!! His uncle runs a store along with Elaine(Anita Mui,1963-2003) who seems to be a lit bit edgy with Keung(J.C.). Uncle Bill(Bill Tung) shows Keung his new aunt-in-law. Who happens to be Afro-American, who Keung happens to be in such shock, but not uptight about it. Seems like he'll get along with her quite well. Though she was shameless when using the bathroom when the tougher baddies tore the store down. The fight scenes are completely unforgettable, and Keung and the gangs ended working together when one of the gangs was brutally murdered by a tougher group other than themselves. The second best scene was the hovercraft vs. Chan vs. a Lamborgini. The Laborgini may have lost their doors, but the sword laced auto took out that hovercraft easily. The water ski scene was awesome. And in my opinion Chan should try out pro one day. Though Chan is wild and cool, he knows how to have fun here in the U.S.A. Rating 4 out of 5 stars.
