Storyline

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....

For the international release, New Line Cinema made numerous changes, including to the script, the removal of over twenty minutes of footage, re-dubbing the mainly sync-sound dialogue, featuring English and Cantonese, almost all into English, and a new music score. The Hong Kong version opens with Keung leaving the airport. The New Line Cinema version runs the opening credits over footage of his plane arriving in New York. Footage that doesn't appear in the New Line Cinema version:
  • Some conversation between Keung and Uncle Bill in the car.

  • After Keung fends off the gang at the market, he delivers a lecture on Chinese Martial Arts. Elaine couldn't understand it, and therefore, wasn't able translate to the Western store workers.
  • Some shots of Elaine closing the store with Keung's assistance.
  • Some shots when the gang ambush Keung at night.
  • After the scene in which Keung wakes up, he goes to the market, but is met with a cold reception from Elaine. The two extortionists return, but Keung confronts and scares them off. The biker gang re-appear at the store, Keung then quickly leaves to call the police. As he confronts them, the police arrive, prompting the gang to disperse. Keung leaves after trying to tend to a shaken Elaine, who is then helped by a store employee.
  • Some shots of the gang chasing Keung during the day.
  • Some of the conversation between Keung and Danny in the apartment.
  • The same extortionists return to the market and Elaine tries, in vain, to scare them away with a mean look, but is attacked.
  • A frustrated officer tells another, who is smoking a cigar, to "take that piece of dog crap out of your mouth."
  • Elaine shows the market to prospectus buyers.
  • A shot of police observing Angelo as he tries to retrieve the diamonds.
  • Whilst questioned at the apartment, one of the suited men asks Keung if he has seen any diamonds.
  • Some shots when Keung and Nancy are together at night.
  • Some shots when the gang raid the store in retaliation for Nancy and Keung's actions.

Great introduction to Chan's work
13 August 2000 | by Castor-5See all my reviews

This was the first film I saw of Jackie's (first one released in the US that I can remember despite The Protector and The Big Brawl in the 80s) and I have to say it's a great introduction to Chan's work. The fighting is great and well shot while the stunts are amazing. The humor (a Jackie trademark) is also hilarious. People from the US really don't know what a good martial arts film is. Some have grown up with Bruce Lee and it's appreciated but many of them are constantly renting Van Damme and Steven Segal films (working at a video store, I see it all the time). Seeing someone who really is impressive at martial arts, dosen't need fast cuts and choppy editing, and does his own stunts puts all the Van Damme's and Segal's to shame. Take the warehouse fight for example and compare it to any American martial arts film and you will see the difference.

For those who haven't seen this film yet and love martial arts films - rent this movie. For those who have seen it and want to see more Jackie - I recommend Drunken Master I and II (II is very hard to find in the US), The Young Master (great final fight), Who Am I? (unbelieveable stunts), Police Story I, II, and III (all around Jackie Chan films, III is known in the US as just Supercop), Operation Condor (tons of martial arts), and Project A I and II (II is another hard to find one in the US). You may also want to check out Rush Hour and Shanghai Noon - they aren't as good as the ones listed above but they are entertaining and Jackie Chan films nonetheless. As for Rumble In The Bronx, make it your first Chan film.
