While not as funny as some of Chan's other entries, like Twin Dragons and Legend Of The Drunken Master, Bronx is thoroughly entertaining and one of his best films.

This is the best worst movie ever.

The movie is a very entertaining one to watch that gets better as it progresses.

He's one of the very few actors/action stars that no matter how incredibly silly his movies look to me – 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.

You should see this movie just purely for its entertaining action, since everything else about the movie is actually quite bad to be honest.

The action sequences did have me on the edge of my seat, and the funny parts did have me laughing.

Sometimes a bit silly but always very entertaining.

Jackie Chan's most exciting movie.

Whether it be going up against baseball bat wielding thugs, leaping from a rooftop to a balcony, water-skiing barefoot behind a speedboat, or clinging perilously to a hovercraft as it ploughs through crowded streets, the Hong Kong superstar is on top form, making this amongst his most enjoyable and action packed cinematic outings.

Silly but entertaining.

It's never anything too big, also since the movie is made obviously with a fairly low budget but it's very entertaining and amazing at the same time.

It's made as an entertaining movie and at entertaining this movie does simply not fail.

In his entertaining biography, Jackie Chan made complaints about how his first American film, BATTLE CREEK BRAWL (AKA THE BIG BRAWL in the UK) was handled.

'Rumble in the Bronx' is crisp, violent, funny & entirely engaging.

Returning to Hong Kong, Chan proceeded to make a series of increasingly popular films internationally, of which POLICE STORY influenced the empty-headed cop thriller TANGO & CASH (watch the opening of that film and you get a direct life from POLICE STORY 1!!

Before ( rush hour ) , before (Shanghai noon) , there was a good Jackie chan movie's called ( rumble in the bronx ) , a mix of action and comedy , some people will think the story and specially the ending was (stupid or dull) , but i found it so funny and entertaining , all fights scene and Hoover chasing scene, omg !

Review: Its been years since I've seen this film and it does seem a bit dated in places but I still enjoyed it.

It's got some of the best action of the 90's (the "big fight" in the film still holds up to this day and is more thrilling than most films you're likely to see), some absolutely gut- busting humor, and one of the most charming and thrilling action stars to ever live.

"Though this may sound a little basic and cliché, it's not a problem.

You watch a Jackie Chan movie for the exciting, creative, and acrobatic fight sequences (the best is a knockout sequence in the gang hideout) and for Chan's insane death defying stunts (here he jumps between buildings without a harness and also gets run over by a hovercraft, though it was his leap off a bridge onto the hovercraft that broke his foot, causing him to perform a significant amount of the film in a cast!

Director Stanley Tong once again invests his movie with plenty of dynamism and exciting situations, making this a solid feature from Chan.

If Academy Award Winner, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, is like the Asian version of Titanic/Traffic, then Rumble in the Bronx is just as thrilling and action-like as Tokyo Raiders.

Ridiculous "plot," but entertaining .

6/10 worth watching for the physical stunts.

His action is always intense with his kung-fu, so basically, everything goes well with the movie.

One of Chan's weaker films in general but still worth watching for Chan's physical abilities.

You watch a Jackie Chan movie for the exciting, creative, and acrobatic fight sequences (the best is a knockout sequence in the gang hideout) and for Chan's insane death defying stunts (here he jumps without a net from a parking structure to another rooftop and also gets run over by a hovercraft, though it was his leap off a bridge onto the hovercraft that broke his foot, causing him to perform a significant amount of the film in a cast!

The plot may be absurd but the fight scenes and stunts are imaginative and enjoyable.

Every movie he makes keeps you on the edge of your seat, Definitely this one.

Dull, uninspiring and worst of all, cheap acting are the main reasons why I never warmed to Jackie Chan movies.

- Jackie jumping from one building to another -the movie music -the outtakes(ouch) Well Rumble in the Bronx is an enjoyable Jackie flic with some Very great stunts performed by himself of course.

Jackie Chan's first major American breakthrough remains his most energetic, entertaining spectacle.

Rumble in the Bronx is a rather typical Jackie film from the point of view that it features intense fight-scenes and equally intense comedy scenes.

" It's kind of like two unfinished films spliced together, really saved only by the action scenes, Anita Mui, and the always enjoyable Bill Tung.

Surely someone can write a screenplay that is exciting, free from cliche, free from dumb dialogue, with believable characters, and still have a few scenes where Jackie is attacked by 30 angry guys and has to defend himself with a mop and a bucket.

Before the plot could get tiresome.

There are a lot of great stunts here and some incredibly entertaining fights.

Fun and exciting.

It finds that superb middle-ground between fight and dance and, as such, is a feast for the eyes in a ballet of brutality that favours the spectacle of motion far more than the violence of battle, even though there are segments of proper grisliness here and there, which adds up to a piece that's incredibly entertaining and impressive to boot.

"Rumble in the bronx" was the first Jackie Chan movie I saw, and it was very entertaining.

Following those boring themes audiences around the world witness in every Jackie Chan movie, 'Rumble in the Bronx' tells of a man (or rather, an almost senile, old fellow) who decides to visit his relatives in North America.

Amusing and entertaining Chan film in which he demonstrates his sensational skills as a great action man .

Early Jackie Chan American adventure is still one of his best and most entertaining ones.

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.

Predictable storyline with an anti-western view.

No, this is a film about delivering intense action and wonderful broad humor.

Exciting?

Could The Road To The Dream Be More Enjoyable Than Fulfilling It ?.

It's a surprisingly complicated affair, punctuated with beautifully choreographed explosions of action and conflict, timed to perfection and filmed with breathtaking cinematic excess, though tempered occasionally by levels of violence which may seem inappropriate to western viewers, given the otherwise upbeat tone.

The screenplay is quite boring with lots of non-funny comedies.

This fun movie is plenty of intrigue , unstopped action , and overwhelming stunt-work with breathtaking ending images including a hovercraft .

Cheap, nasty, and at times, incredibly tedious though it may be, it's a Chan film you'll always want to watch again.

In fact, (Rumble in the Bronx) is one of (Chan)'s best movies, being more entertaining than many of his previous Asian ones, and the other later American ones too.
