Rumble in the Bronx (1995)11K
Rumble in the Bronx: Directed by Stanley Tong. With Jackie Chan, Anita Mui, Françoise Yip, Bill Tung. A young man visiting and helping his uncle in New York City finds himself forced to fight a street gang and the mob with his martial art skills.
“This was the first film I saw of Jackieu0026#39;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 itu0026#39;s a great introduction to Chanu0026#39;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 donu0026#39;t know what a good martial arts film is. Some have grown up with Bruce Lee and itu0026#39;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, dosenu0026#39;t need fast cuts and choppy editing, and does his own stunts puts all the Van Dammeu0026#39;s and Segalu0026#39;s to shame. Take the warehouse fight for example and compare it to any American martial arts film and you will see the difference.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFor those who havenu0026#39;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 arenu0026#39;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.”
