What a Fun Movie!

"I have never been a martial arts fan. I've never had the desire to watch a movie that had anything to do with martial arts. Rumble in the Bronx and Jackie Chan changed all that.This was the first Jackie Chan movie I ever watched and it took some arm twisting to get me to sit down to watch it. When I did sit down, it was with the attitude that I already hated this movie and Jackie Chan. That didn't last!Jackie Chan is not your typical martial arts tough guy. He's got an increadible sense of humor and he is able to laugh at himself. That part comes through in all the movies that I've seen him in and it certianly comes through in Rumble in the Bronx. He is also an increadible athlete/stuntman/martial artist! The combination is very entertaining.Rumble has a cheesey plot and some cheesey acting in it, but it's a great movie and only Jackie Chan could pull it off so well. If the thought of watching a martial arts film is a huge turn off to you, but you like action moves and comedys ... you will not be disapointed with Rumble in the Bronx."

"And teaches them a thing or two about being nice. I've been a Jackie Chan admirer since I first saw "The Cannonball Run" way back in 1981, but this was the first Chan movie I saw on the big screen. It's not moviemaking as fine art, it's moviemaking as fine fun.
An action comedy, "Rumble in the Bronx" features Jackie in the big city, New York (actually Vancouver, with mountains visible in the background in several scenes). It's a strangely clean and orderly version of the Big Apple, but no matter. Pretty soon, Our Man Chan fights a motorcycle gang, protects a store, helps a girl and her wheelchair-bound little brother, and pilots a hovercraft in a surprisingly uplifting ending.
Fresh and colorful, "Rumble" won't please the arthouse crowd, and probably doesn't even rank with Jackie's top flicks; I'll leave that for the hardcore Jackie fans to decide. But Jackie's joy in his work is contagious, and here, he's at his good-hearted best. Not only does he poke fun at himself in several scenes, but he also can't even stay mad at the kids who battered him senseless with bottles in an alley. Although the disk features a full-screen version, make sure you watch the widescreen DVD so you can enjoy all the delightful and creative fight choreography, including an amazing sequence where Jackie kicks butt with pinball machines. Also starring Bill Tung, who always seems to play "Uncle Bill" in Jackie's movies."
