In the scene where Jackie leaps from the park and onto the fixed crane, swinging above where the Demons stage the kidnapping, it clearly visible that Jackie misses his mark when grabbing for the crane extension. His hands breeze right by it. But, in a following shot, you see him successfully grab the crane extension and swing down. See more »
The last scene shown in the opening credits, following the director's credit for Sammo Kam-Bo Hung is a quick shot from later in the film of Sammo Hung, as the angry biker, beating someone up. See more »
C'mon, all of you! Throw some more votes into the pot if you've seen enough out of everything! Jackie Chan's recent movies including MR. NICE GUY show their prescnce in the Hollywood mainstream thanks to a special ingredient: originality. Take your pick at RUMBLE IN THE BRONX and thereafter! Impressive and fast stunt choreography from TV chef Chan is astounding and well done, something that highly trained professionals have died for. Voices aren't dubbed this time around, but Chan's accent takes some learning. The touch of comedy is another welcome feature, making this one specially entertaining. Fat bicyclist steals the show for fighting back, and the end outtakes are a nice bonus. There are a couple of gripes, though. MR. NICE GUY tends to run the same route as R.I.T.B. from start to finish (like the giant truck finale), and it could have been less on stupidity, but as I said before, the comedy was welcome. More movies like this would (almost) put James Bond 007 in the retirement home! Another must-see for action buffs! Another must-have for the fan of Chan!
