Rumble in The Bronx (1995)
Director: Stanley Tong
Many people are unimpressed by this film. We, on
the other hand, feel that this is an awesomely fun (albeit stupid)
action movie. The plot, acting, and sets are horrible; BUT the fight
choreography shows Jackie at his most creative!
Jackie Chan travels to America for his uncle's
wedding and ends up having to go up against a gang of vicious,
motorcycle-riding hoodlums. Things are further complicated when Jackie
befriends a young, wheelchair-bound boy and must protect him.
Since bursting onto the martial arts film scene in
1973, Jackie Chan has become one of the world's most popular stars. His
movies -- which he acts in, performs his own stunts for, and often
directs -- have earned millions at the box office. "Rumble in the
Bronx," one of his biggest hits to date, takes him to the mean streets
of New York City. Chan plays Keung, a Chinese tourist who goes up
against a gang of vicious, motorcycle-riding hoodlums.
Keung runs into the thugs when they attack his
uncle's store and he fights them to protect it. Although his martial
arts skills come in handy, Keung soon has his hands full facing more
dangerous opponents -- a vicious band of jewel thieves masquerading as
F.B.I. agents. Now Keung now must protect not only his uncle's store,
but also his beautiful neighbor, Nancy, and her wheelchair-bound younger
brother. What follows are numerous action-packed fight sequences. Will
this one-man army be able to defeat his deadly enemies?
