Did You Know?


The original spoken dialogue consisted of all of the actors speaking their native language most of the time. In the completely undubbed soundtrack, available on the Warner Japanese R2 DVD release, Jackie Chan actually speaks his native Cantonese while Françoise Yip and Morgan Lam (the actors playing Nancy and Danny) speak English. All of the original dialogue was intended to be dubbed over in the international and Hong Kong film markets, and New Line cinema overdubbed and slightly changed the original English dialogue.

There IS a rumble, in the Bronx that is!
7 April 2005 | by (WILMINGTON, NC) – See all my reviews

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.
