Default Rumble In The Bronx (1995)

My simple and honest reviews with a little hint of sarcasm, I can't post edit videos and I don't do youtube...


First review up for KFC and this is a first, yes Virgin at the wheel here and I based this not on a 1-10 scale or 4 star rating but rated as the greatest movie ever or not the greatest and then I'll just give you footnotes on why it is or isn't...

Rumble In The Bronx (1995)
Directed By: Stanley Tong
Cast: Jackie Chan, Anita Mui, Bill Tung, Francoise Yip, I really wanted to list the white guy with the blonde hair with the broken nose and the glitz leather jacket but I can't find his name on IMDB, one of the funniest punk gang members in movie history, lol...


The greatest movie ever, yes or no

1. The love for the cushion
2. The most diverse punk gangs ever committed to celluloid
3. Jackie Chan pronouncing words like "Uncle," "Video Game"
4. The use of glass bottle over and over again doesn't really send the message across because the following day Chan is being chase in broad daylight with dirt bikes in a very pedestrian area, LOL...
5. Jackie Chan is sporting mom's Jean
6. The English Dubbing is fantastic!!!!
7. Uncle Ben wifes a sassy black lady that looks like Star Jones
8. Hovercraft chase scene
9. Jackie Chan gives an uplifting words of wisdom speech before and after the showdown at Punk's headquarters
10. Anita Mua gives one of the most hilarious performance in her career
11. Jamaican Drug Deal gone wrong
12. Jackie Chan Rock Song at the end of the credits

This is one of my favorite films, and yes, because of Anita Mui's input - but in my opinion, her absolutely funniest performance was in Drunken Master II - but this also was a great film to introduce the American public to Hong Kong cinema....

Personal favorite line: "You are all garbage!"

I'll always have a soft spot for this one, my intro to a much bigger world.

His real name is Garvin Cross, he played the part of Angelo. I agree with you that this is a very good film and was actually the first Jackie film I ever saw.

[QUOTE=
12. Jackie Chan Rock Song at the end of the credits[/QUOTE]

FYI The music is from a Northern Irish band called 'Ash' and was recorded in 1995 and is on their album entitled '1977' (coz thats when they were born). The song is called 'Kung Fu' and it's a tribute coz the members of the band are fans of the movies. I had the album many years back, and when i first watched encounters of the spooky kind and saw the fight between sammo and Lam ching yins police henchmen in the tea house it struck me immediately that the chop socky sound effects were what was sampled at the beginning of the Ash song.

Heres the video
