Plot: 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.

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.

My introduction to Jackie Chan. (by lee_eisenberg)
Before I'd seen "Rumble in the Bronx", I'd heard of Jackie Chan but never seen any of his movies. Well, when I saw this, I practically died laughing. Basically an hour and a half of him bonking people in every direction, the movie is physical humor at its best. The plot has Hong Kong cop Keung Chan coming to New York for his uncle's wedding and having to battle street gangs and a crime syndicate. By battle, I of course mean pulling every crazy stunt imaginable. I really liked the early scene in the store, and then the whole hovercraft sequence.I gotta ask: how did we <more>
get by before these kinds of movies? There was once a time when movies all followed the Disney formula, and Jackie Chan-style plots were unfathomable. Thank God for Bruce Lee! As it is, Jackie Chan often seems to be spoofing Bruce Lee. Hilarious.
In this fast-paced action-packed ride, 2016 Recipient of The Honourary Academy-Award, Jackie Chan displays excellence. With mesmerizing comfort in material arts, genuine feeling in light moments & comic timing so neat, that only Jim Carrey could envy, Chan is an absolute delight in this 1990's blockbuster. I revisited it after years & still found myself in awe.'Rumble in the Bronx' Synopsis: 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.'Rumble in the Bronx' is crisp, <more>
violent, funny & entirely engaging. The story moves on a feverish pace & the series of events that happen with our unbeatable hero, are arresting all through. The Writing is neat & Stanley Tong's Direction stays to the point. The Action-Sequences/Martial Arts Combats are FANTASTIC. Chan is at the top of his game here, and as mentioned before, his excellence rules the show. The supporting cast too, put in sincere, committed performances.On the whole, This one remains a winner!
So good dude. That hovercraft chase really brings it home. When I'm confused in life, and don't know where to turn I often think to myself WWJD. What would Jackie do? Well he'd steal a hovercraft, that's what he'd do. He makes survival a fun and visually stimulating experience. It's important that we all take a moment out of our day, step back and think to ourselves "How can I be a little more like Jackie?"
Jackie Chan - Hero (by winner55)
I've read reviews from a number of people who were fans of Jackie Chan before he was well known in the west, that express disappointment that Rumble in the Bronx is the film that finally made Chan a household name in America, because they feel the film is quite a come-down from the "Police Story" films that formed the main link between Chan and his past before making this film.I must strongly disagree. Yes - the Anglo actors aren't very good; the plot is silly at times; the dialog is weak, some of the characters are unbelievable.But there's seems no question that the <more>
stunt-work is excellent, and the fight scenes are excellent - these really form the reason for making the film in the first place.Furthermore, I think that, of all the protagonists he's played, Chan's character here is the closest to being a true hero of the highest caliber - incorruptible, unstoppable, compassionate, smart - if all our heroes were like this, this would be a different world; if we were all like this, it would be heaven.And I'm not getting all that ironic here - I sincerely mean that Chan returns a kind of virtuous character to the silver screen, that hasn't been seen for a very long time.Consequently, despite occasional violence, I would not stop children from seeing this film - I would encourage them to do so. They can learn a lot about ethics and character from watching this film - and that is actually quite remarkable, to be able to say that of a Martial Arts film.
There IS a rumble, in the Bronx that is! (by GOWBTW)
This movie is spectacular. Jackie Chan going to the Bronx. And man, it's a zoo out there. HAHAHAHAHA!!! His uncle runs a store along with Elaine Anita Mui,1963-2003 who seems to be a lit bit edgy with Keung J.C. . Uncle Bill Bill Tung shows Keung his new aunt-in-law. Who happens to be Afro-American, who Keung happens to be in such shock, but not uptight about it. Seems like he'll get along with her quite well. Though she was shameless when using the bathroom when the tougher baddies tore the store down. The fight scenes are completely unforgettable, and Keung and the gangs ended <more>
working together when one of the gangs was brutally murdered by a tougher group other than themselves. The second best scene was the hovercraft vs. Chan vs. a Lamborgini. The Laborgini may have lost their doors, but the sword laced auto took out that hovercraft easily. The water ski scene was awesome. And in my opinion Chan should try out pro one day. Though Chan is wild and cool, he knows how to have fun here in the U.S.A. Rating 4 out of 5 stars.
The jump from the roof of one building to the balcony of adjacent building was copied by Jason bourne. (by Fella_shibby)
I remember seeing this film in Regal theatre, Colaba, Mumbai in 1996. The stunts were simply amazing and if one were to watch today for the first time, they need to know: Jackie did them all himself, without cables, etc. The movie is a very entertaining one to watch that gets better as it progresses. There is a scene where Jackie takes a leap from the roof of one building into a balcony of the adjacent building. Jason Bourne copied from this . Jackie Chan provides some of the best fight scenes in this film with lots of cool jaw dropping stunts. And you got to love the little film at the end <more>
of the movie showing Jackie do all the stunts. This film showed some of Jackies best stunt work. The hovercraft action scene was also good. Directed by Stanley Tong Police story 3, 4 .
I'd guess you'd have to call 'Rumble in the Bronx' an extreme example of a guilty pleasure. Though back in the 1990s, it was not my first introduction to Jackie Chan the inferior 'Supercop' was it was the one that got me hooked on his work. All the way through this viewing â€“ the first in many years, the word "silly" kept popping up in my mind. It's dialogue, acting, stereotypes and shoddy cop work was so hilariously bad, I could only think this had to be written by someone who's only contact with the U.S.A. involves watching old 1970s cop <more>
hour-long dramas. And while some scenes were actually funny SEE: the wrench threat some were downright unintentionally funny SEE: the toddler-toss and the entire closing on the golf course. Leaving all that negative behind, it was an extreme joy watching Chan perform his own stunts in many, many inventive ways while simultaneously creating a very human and good-hearted character. The stunts were simply amazing and if one were to watch today for the first time, they need to know: he did them all himself, without a green screens, cables, etc. As arrogant as Chan is â€“ I've read his biography, it's dripping with arrogance, he does have great gifts in originality, showmanship, pride in his work and making sure he never uses traditional American trickery/stunts. This changes later in his work, when he was forced and got older, but this work and ones around it were all pure Chan. Synopsis: Good-natured nephew Chan visits NYC and gets thrown in extraordinary circumstances: fighting both gangs and mob bosses while helping 2 women, his Uncle and a handicapped child. All that's irrelevant; what matters is once the action starts, it never lets up. And with an open-mind, what a fun rumble you'll have.Side Note: Wow.. not only was it painful for all the actors to get hurt during production not to mention the roughly 16 dozen vehicles it was also gut wrenching to watch the closing credits that showed mostly the unintentional crashes, broken bones, etc. You really have to hand it to the devotion of the crew, cast and Chan. Definitely Chan. My comments about his arrogance does not mean I don't admire the man, especially his extremely poor and underprivileged beginnings to the entertainer he became. He's one of the very few actors/action stars that no matter how incredibly silly his movies look to me â€“ it has to be a culture thing, it's always a rush to see how long his fight scenes last, how inventive he becomes and simply how exciting they are.
It's got good action - what else do you want!?! (by thomas-hardcastle-2)
Okay now. Let's forget the fact that the city is blatantly not New York. Let's forget the fact that the acting is urine-poor. Let's forget the fact that the dubbing leaves a lot to be desired. Let's forget the fact that the storyline can be written on one side of a match box. Let's forget the fact that the ending is a big pile of Jeff. Let's forget the fact that a sword attached to a car with a foot holding it in place cannot puncture a hovercraft. Let's forget the fact that a Sega Game Gear can only function with a games cartridge in the back. Let's forget the <more>
fact that Jackie really could have done better with regards to many things.Once we've forgiven Jackie and forgotten all of the above, sit back, relax, and enjoy the spectacle.The fights are fast, furious, and at times down right dangerous, as one would expect in a Jackie Chan film. The humour used in the fight scenes is a wonderful example of the difference between Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee. Whilst Lee would walk into a room and knock everyone out with a single punch or kick, Chan demonstrates his creativity, athleticism, dedication, and pure balls, by using everything around him, in a survivalist style, creating comic humour along the way.Cheap, nasty, and at times, incredibly tedious though it may be, it's a Chan film you'll always want to watch again. I love it.
"Rumble in the Bronx" - Jackie Chan's re-entry to America (by dee.reid)
Most American movie-goers have probably heard of Jackie Chan, but have never actually seen any of his movies. The original Hong Kong martial arts stunt-master, who rose to fame following the death of martial arts legend Bruce Lee during the late 1970s and early '80s, has done enough in the 29 years since the breakthrough of "Drunken Master" 1978 to become an action tour de force entirely of his own making.But 1995's "Rumble in the Bronx" was not the first time American audiences got to see Chan in action. He had made appearances in the "Cannonball Run" <more>
series and received his first American starring role in "The Big Brawl" 1980 , and later starred in "The Protector" 1985 , where American studio bosses hyped him up to be Bruce Lee's logical successor. Unhappy with his work in the United States because he couldn't practice his slap-happy kung-fu antics and humor and trademark death-defying stunt-work , he retreated back to Hong Kong where he continued to dazzle audiences on his home soil with his own unique brand of action.With "Rumble in the Bronx," directed by Stanley Tong, Chan decided to give America another chance, and for once we were ready 1998's "Rush Hour," which paired him with comedian Chris Tucker, would show that Chan is here to stay . Although the edited American version of the film is the reason why I believe studio execs here should not be allowed anywhere near the original prints of foreign films, it is not as bad a hack-job as it could have been. You can deal with the bad dubbing even though there is still a considerable amount of English-language dialogue and easy-to-spot goofs the Game Gear with no game , but the frantic action scenes and Chan's stunt-mastery make up for all the negatives.In a plot somewhat resembling Bruce Lee's "Return of the Dragon" 1972 , "Rumble in the Bronx" finds Chan as a young man named Keung, who takes over his uncle's Bronx, New York, USA actually Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada , grocery store while the man is away on his honeymoon. A pretty entrepreneur named Elaine the late Chinese songstress Anita Mui has just bought a piece of the store, and asks that Keung help out. But when violent gang members begin harassing them, it's when Keung puts his feet and fists to work. However, murders linked to stolen diamonds and a bunch of shadowy men-in-black throw the plot into overdrive, eventually culminating in a chase with a hovercraft don't ask, just watch through the streets of Vancouver, dragging poor but very brave Chan behind it.As you can see, the plot doesn't matter much not even the tender scenes between him and wheelchair-bound Morgan Lam, or his gang member sister Francoise Yip but it serves up a perfect excuse for plenty of scenes featuring Jackie Chan doing a number on many brave stunt-men and women, and taking a licking himself. He's proof-positive of what every true action star should be, in that he'll do anything to please his fans. Chan's Mr. Nice Guy persona and trademark stunts are what allowed him to elevate himself above Bruce Lee after his death. The only reason you'll watch "Rumble in the Bronx" is to see star Jackie Chan in action, but it's not the only reason you'll watch his other films, because those are just as good too.8/10
