YesAsia Editorial Description

The highest-grossing film in Hong Kong movie history at the time of its release, Jackie Chan’s Rumble in the Bronx would eventually receive a North American theatrical run in 1996. Bronx grossed over US$30 million dollars in the United States and made Chan a Hollywood sensation, paving the way for his work on the blockbuster Rush Hour movie series and years of international superstardom.

Stanley Tong (Police Story III: Supercop) directs this action comedy about Ma Hon-Keung (Chan), a Hong Kong cop who vacations in the Bronx in New York City to attend the wedding of his uncle (Bill Tung). However, Ma runs afoul of a street gang terrorizing a local supermarket run by Elaine (Anita Mui), beginning a series of clashes that escalates when one of the gang members steals a stash of diamonds from a criminal syndicate. Soon Ma is fighting the criminals to retrieve the diamonds, protect his friends and return his vacation to some semblance of peace! Co-starring Francoise Yip (Black Mask), Rumble in the Bronx features plenty of Jackie Chan’s inimitable comic acting, along with intricate fight choreography, dazzling stuntwork and an unexpected, over-the-top finale where Chan pilots a runaway hovercraft across the Bronx.

Product Information

Director: Stanley Tong

No one brings more death-defying entertainment to the screen than fearless martial arts superstar Jackie Chan (Rush Hour 2). In this awe-inspiring and highly amusing action-thriller, Chan outdoes himself with the most eye-popping stunts ever filmed, each more amazing than the last. Chan plays Keong, a Hong Kong cop who gets more than he bargained for when he visits relatives in a crime-ridden section of New York. Soon Keong is brawling with Mafia kingpins and unleashing his lethal skills on unsuspecting thugs. From the first astonishing action sequence to the last, in which Chan is matched against a giant hovercraft in a deadly show of brute strength.

Professional Review of "Rumble In The Bronx (1995) (Blu-ray) (UK Version)"

December 9, 2005

This professional review refers to Rumble In The Bronx (1995) (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)
Fresh off their collaboration on Police Story III: Supercop, Jackie Chan and Stanley Tong thought they needed a calling card for a Hollywood breakthrough. A package of Chan's older movies were in negotiation with an American studio and the price would go up if Chan had a new movie coming out set in the US. Sounds good to Jackie. Sounds good to Stanley. So off they went, and it is to the eternal relief of fans everywhere that the movie which resulted from this attempt to make a straight-up Hollywood actioner was so unintentionally skewed.

Set in New York City, but filmed in obviously non-New York Vancouver, Canada, Jackie arrives at JFK airport and meets his Uncle Bill (the eternal Bill Tung) who has a job for him at his supermarket. Uncle Bill's marrying a Nell Carter look-a-like and his store has been passed off to Anita Mui to manage and so Jackie decides to stick around for awhile. A punk motorcycle gang out of The Warriors show up to menace the store, but Jackie's there to save the day. But as he fights the punks, the mafia appears, and then there's some business with stolen diamonds, and suddenly there's a kid in a wheelchair and a hovercraft...wait a minute. None of this makes any sense. Which is the point.

Gleeful discontinuity, mad shallow characters, cartoon narrative, and colorful silly, non-stop nonsense are the saving graces of Rumble in the Bronx. This is one of the most careless movies ever made, but since it's physically impossible for Jackie to look bad on film, it plays out like a Loony Tunes West Side Story. Crisp fight choreography (the appliance showdown with the street gang took fifteen days to film), rolling chase scenes (including one that ends in a parking garage with director Stanley Tong doubling a 35 foot jump for Jackie), interracial love, and a New York City with mountains clearly visible in the background all add to the charms of the fluffiest Jackie Chan movie ever made. Part of a trilogy of living Chan Cartoons (the other two being Twin Dragons andCity Hunter) this movie has, against everyone's better judgement, wormed its way into hearts all over the world.

Chan broke his ankle leaping onto a hovercraft (don't ask) and the wily Canadians revoked the crew's permit to film the final fight scene and so the climax became a Lamborghini vs. hovercraft showdown (again: don't ask), but that's beside the point. By the time you get to the end you've seen Chan pelted with bottles, dropped in a truck full of bouncy balls, put on a frugly one-piece exercise ensemble, and get chased by some really bad actors. Which is what we pay to see. Language is no obstacle, which is one of the reasons that this very odd, cartoon explosion went on to become one of Jackie Chan's biggest hits of all time around the world.

As if VCD isn't already bad enough, you couldn't even see the subtitles and the screen was so blurry even if played in a smaller screen on the computer, I would recommend the DVD instead. Rumble in the Bronx is too good of a movie to be presented in such low quality. Just get the DVD, you won't be sorry later.

Best Jackie Chan film in recent years Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
In my opinion, this is the best Jackie Chan film that he has made in recent years, even better than rush hour 1 & 2,acidental spy, who am I and Shanghai Noon.
