Jackie is hired to help the UN find Nazi gold hidden in Sahara. He's accompanied from Spain by 2 (later 3) cute women. As there are others wanting the gold, lots of kung fu fighting and comedy follows.
Wong Fei-Hung (Jackie Chan) is a mischievous, yet righteous young man, but after a series of incidents, his frustrated father has him disciplined by Beggar So (Siu Tin Yuen), a Master of drunken martial arts.
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

The cable station American Movie Channel aired this movie with some additional scenes. Uncle Bill's duet with his new wife is reinstated, as well as the market scene where Keung stares down some extortionists and calls the police on Tony's gang. See more »
Sometimes a bit silly but always very entertaining.
There are some moments in 'Rumble In The Bronx (1995)' where the dub causes unintentional hilarity ("my cushion") and occasional times when the silliness of the tone doesn't quite match up with the intentions of the plot, but for the most part this is a fun and fantastically well-choreographed action-adventure staring cinema's greatest stunt-man-come-actor. It finds that superb middle-ground between fight and dance and, as such, is a feast for the eyes in a ballet of brutality that favours the spectacle of motion far more than the violence of battle, even though there are segments of proper grisliness here and there, which adds up to a piece that's incredibly entertaining and impressive to boot. 7/10
