Revealing mistake: In one scene, after a massive car chase, the end result is a city bus twirling round and round. Look under the bus and you can clearly see the mechanism supporting it.

Trivia: One of the first scenes to be filmed was where Jackie jumps from the base of the bridge to the hovercraft. Unfortunately, he broke his ankle doing it and ended up in plaster. A sock that looked like a trainer was created to go over the plaster and Jackie filmed the rest of the movie with a broken ankle. If you watch through the titles, you can see him showing off the sock.

Trivia: It was actually filmed in Vancouver (due to production concerns). At first they tried to hide this fact by using camera angles that hid the mountains and having graffiti painted (and removed at the end of each day). In the end they decided to just film the action and not worry about hiding the location: people should be watching the action, not the background...

New this month Trivia: "Rumble in the Bronx" is oft-considered Jackie Chan's first major breakthrough hit in the US. The film was among the first of Chan's films to receive a wide American release, in addition to general critical and commercial acclaim.

New this month Question: Is the original cut of the film available in Region One territories on either DVD or Blu-Ray? I have the standard DVD and Blu-Ray editions, but they are pretty sparse on content and only seem to have the cut US version of the film, which is missing some plot and comedy beats.
