Rumble in the Bronx is a 1995 Hong Kong martial arts film starring Jackie Chan as Keung, a cop who has traveled from Hong Kong to New York for his Uncle's wedding. What was supposed to be a fun trip to celebrate the marriage turns into a deadly war when Keung takes a stand against the street gangs that rule the streets under the authority of the major New York criminals. Keung is a master martial artist with no equal on the streets of New York. While he may be a better individual fighter, even he is challenged when up against the tremendous numbers of the New York street gangs. Never one to back down, Keung fights back the street gangs and works his way up until he has a chance to take down the big-time gangsters who run the New York crime syndicate. This is Jackie Chan's first film to receive widespread release in North America, following the popularity of his earlier Hong Kong films. Rumble in the Bronx was well-received by critics and audiences and catapulted Jackie Chan into a full-fledged action hero.

    Variety Derek Elley

    Though Chan wins his usual stripes for death-defying... the movie ends on a dramatically unsatisfying note.
