SCREENING

Rumble in the Bronx

Friday, Jun 7 at 8:00 pm

Saturday, Jun 8 at 6:15 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Stanley Tong. 1995, 87 mins. Hong Kong. 35mm. With Jackie Chan, Anita Mui, Françoise Yip, Bill Tung. Already a superstar in his native Hong Kong, Chan officially broke through to the American mainstream with this perfect showcase for the action icon’s breathtaking talent. Rumble follows Chan’s cop from his home country to New York for an uncle’s wedding, where he gets unwittingly involved in gang warfare. The plot is negligible, and Vancouver awkwardly stands in for the Bronx, but that’s all beside the point for a movie that provides such a dazzling mix of raw fight scenes and balletic stunts, all best experienced in a theater with a cheering, awestruck audience. The number one movie in North America opening weekend, Rumble immediately established Chan as a box office force to be reckoned with.
