Editorial Reviews

Jackie Chan finally conquered America with Rumble in the Bronx. If the mildly contorted English dialogue sounds peculiarly foreign and disembodied (most of it is dubbed), and the mountains of Vancouver, BC don't convincingly double for the skyline of New York City, well, peculiarities like these actually contribute something to the movie's ingenuous charm. With his disarming smile and feline physicality, the compact Chan radiates star quality. But there's more to him than charisma: at his best, the actor combines the relentlessly escalating, hyperkinetic action set-pieces for which Hong Kong is famous; the rigorous martial arts training of his idol, Bruce Lee; and the grace and daring that distinguish Buster Keaton's physical comedy. Chan also shares some of Keaton's cinematic integrity, which dictated that you shouldn't cheat the audience by faking stunts, on the set or in the editing room. Like Keaton, Chan does his own stunts, and you can see that it really is him jumping off a bridge onto a speeding boat, or clinging to the dangling ladder of a helicopter as the hostile pilot tries to shake him loose by smashing him into the sides of skyscrapers. Not that it matters, really, but the plot of Rumble in the Bronx has something to do with Chan helping the woman who has taken over his uncle's neighborhood market when she is harassed by local hoodlums. What really matters is Chan, and he's in fine form. Rumble in the Bronx doesn't rank with his best work, but it's a swell introduction to a unique star. And those stunt outtakes over the end credits are as delightfully spellbinding as ever. "See?" Chan seems to say every time he breaks a rib or twists an ankle (which happens often). "I'm doing this all for you." --Jim Emerson

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Fun Movie! November 10, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jackie Chan mixes it up with thugs! March 11, 2002
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let's get ready to rumble! November 8, 2002
By chatchi
Before Jackie Chan was staring in movies with Chris Tucker and Jennifer Love Hewitt, he was one of the industry's greatest action heroes.

I typically try to steer clear of movies where the main character has the same name as the actor portraying him, but for Jackie Chan, I'll make an exception.

If you've grown tired of Chan's ridiculous wise-cracks (see: "Rush Hour"), and childish plots (see: "The Tuxedo"), then "Rumble in the Bronx" is the movie for you. Pay no attention to the weak acting or the paper-thin plot, the focal point of this movie is the heart-stopping action sequences.

"Rumble in the Bronx" is much more than flying fists and death-defying stunts, there's also a lesson to be learned. Jackie reminds us, "Don't let the situation change you. Change it."

Something to think about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only seen Rush Hour? You haven't seen Jackie Chan. July 31, 2001
I feel obligated to write this review. One day at dinner my sister mentioned she saw Rush Hour and she thought Jackie Chan was so cute. I don't want to disparage Rush Hour or its soon to be seen sequel but if all you have seen of Jackie Chan is Rush Hour, then you haven't seen a Jackie Chan movie. Jackie Chan's charisma and fight sequences are turned down to a two on a scale of ten on Rush Hour. Even Shanghai Noon only gives you a taste of Jackie. To really experience Jackie Chan at his best in an American film, your only true choice is Rumble in the Bronx. If you have never seen Jackie Chan at all, Rumble in the Bronx will instantly make you a fan. It is only here that you will see why people love him the world over. He does what I can only classify as the most amazing fighting you will ever see. What makes his fighting so unique is the fantastic speed, creativity and humor that go into it. As if that weren't enough to knock you out it is his winning smile and good heart that will amaze you even more. What will furthur slay you even more is when you see the outtakes at the end of the picture. He never uses a stuntman and he does some really dangerous stuff and actually gets hurt pretty bad on occasion all because he wants you to be totally entertained. In one outtake after he has broken his foot you will see they make him a fake cast to look like a tennis shoe so he can still do a crazy stunt where he gets dragged by a boat. Its insane but no matter what happens he always comes up smiling. People love him because they know that is always him putting it all out on the line for you. Anyway if all you have seen is American Jackie Chan films, please rent or buy Rumble in the Bronx. You are missing out on so much.
(If you don't mind subtitles, his great Chinese film Drunken Master just became avalilable)
