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....

Did You Know?

Trivia

Filming in Vancouver, British Columbia on October 6, 1994, Jackie Chan broke his right ankle while attempting the scene where he jumps onto the hovercraft. Despite the injury, he was present at the premiere of The Legend of Drunken Master (1994) at the Vancouver International Film Festival that night. Later in the production of this movie, Director Stanley Tong sprained his ankle, completing the movie on crutches. Françoise Yip also broke her leg while filming the scene where she rides a motorbike across the tops of parked cars. She insisted on returning to the set after her leg was plastered at the hospital. Two stuntwomen also broke their legs during the filming of the motorcycle chase. See more »

Goofs

The same background vehicles are used repeatedly throughout the film during major action sequences on the streets. Most obvious are a red Mercury Bobcat, beige Ford Thunderbird and red Ford Granada, which appear, along with other vehicles, multiple times during the hovercraft chase, and earlier in the parking garage scene. Vehicles that are hit and damaged show up later parked or representing other vehicles, including the Dodge Diplomat police cruiser struck by the station wagon at the intersection; this reappears shortly after as the police unit hit by the hovercraft along with Harrison's unmarked car (identical damage from the earlier scene is visible). Furthermore, two of the unmarked police cars (the red Plymouth Caravelle and gray Chevrolet Caprice) are inconspicuously used as parked vehicles several times throughout the hovercraft chase, most obviously at the beach where Keung runs across them to jump aboard the craft.

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.
