    It's been forever since I've seen it. I wasn't aware any of it was actually shot in the Bronx.

    I love how they didn't even bother to hide the mountains north of Vancouver in some shots.

    That's because he wasn't an international superstar (yet) when they shot it. It was made for Hong Kong audiences that don't know from NYC (and at a time when people couldn't look up The Bronx on the internet to see what it looks like). However, "Red Bronx" (as the movie was called in Chinese) turned out to be his international breakout hit when it was released in America two years later (1995) as "Rumble in the Bronx."

    Then again, anybody who watches a Jackie Chan movie who's criticizing inaccuracies in the scenery is probably in the wrong theater.
