Rumble in Hong Kong (1972)
Synopsis: (From back cover) “Ho Mei Fong is a young woman caught up in a gang and trying desperately to get out. The gang will stop at nothing to hunt her down. While on the run she steps into the cab of Chien Chin, an honest and hardworking cabdriver. She dies en route to the hospital. Chien Chin then becomes the target of the ruthless gang, who believe he has Ho Mei Fong’s purse. Jackie Chan stars as the blood-thirsty leader of the gang, who with his band of thugs will stop at nothing to find it. Helping Chien out is Ho Mei Fong’s long lost sister, a police woman and martial arts master. Together they try to unlock the mystery of the missing purse and recover it before the gang does them in.”
Debbie's Review: This is a very early, non-starring role with Jackie in a small part as a nasty, vicious punk. I paid $4 for this on DVD, and even that was too much. Not only does he have to share the screen with a frighteningly large, furry mole clinging to his chin, but the pan-and-scan version I have (from Front Row Features) usually chops Jackie out of the picture in favor of whoever he happens to be standing next to at the time: pretty ironic, considering the whole disgusting mess is being billed as a "Jackie Chan Movie."
The film itself is boring, with not much of a story, and badly staged fights, including an extended fight near the end between Jackie and the good guy. (Jackie loses, of course.) Some of Jackie’s early roles are fun to check out, but this ain't one of them.
Chan-o-rama's Review: THIS MOVIE WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok, lets get serious. IT SUCKED. Plain and simple. I could take a 6-pack out into the streets, convince some hobos to come with me, put them in Hamlet, and still get better reviews than Little Tiger of Canton. Some people may think that's a little harsh, but they are obviously on dope, or they just havent seen the movie yet. I think i speak for everyone on this floating rock which we call Earth, save your money, its just not worth it.
Review: This movie never was released in Germany so I haven't seen
it until today.
The Drunken Master's Review: Well, one
day I took a trip to Conneticut, and I decided I'd buy some early Jackie
Chan films. I got this for $7.99.
S REVIEW: I BOUGHT THE MOVIE AND I WATCHED IT MAINLY BECAUSE IT WAS JACKIE. I DON'T REALLY CARE FOR THE MOVIE BECAUSE THE PART WAS NOT RIGHT FOR JACKIE . I WILL PROBABLY WATCH IT AGAIN SOMETIME BECAUSE NO MOVIE WITH JACKIE IS ALL BAD
JF's Review: Police Woman. What a boring movie. Jackie's part is too minimal for it to really
count as a performance.
Joe's Review: Arg!!! bad bad movie, with Jackie having something on the side of his face. It was so boring and I haven't even watched the whole thing yet.
Aas' Review: The plot: A taxi driver named Cheng Chen is getting beaten up by a ruthless gang
who is looking for somebody's purse. You see in the beginning the villian (Jackie
Chan) and his friends are chasing a girl which is dying in Cheng Chen`s
cab. Cheng Chen wants to find out why they want that purse. He is contacting
a police woman named Ho-Mei-Hwa which is the girl`s (the one who died in
Cheng Chen`s taxi) sister. Together they fight the gang and the boss who
is selling drugs.
