1 watched this movie a long time ago and remember it as being nothing short of incredible.after having watched it last night,i found myself disappointed.i guess our tastes change as we grow older.don't get me wrong,i think it is still a fairly decent movie.the problems is,lots of movies in this genre could be considered fairly decent.(and many are less than fairly decent)there are 2 things which set this movie apart from others in the genre.one is the fantastic and spectacular fight scenes.the other is the screen presence and charisma of the late Brandon Lee.without these 2 elements,this movie would be slightly above average.as it is,"Rapid Fire" gets 3/5 from me.

Format: DVD
What this movie lacks in dialogue it definitely makes up in action. I have read that some of the reviewers have had freezing problems with their discs; fortunately I have not encountered this problem. In my opinion the picture is very clear and the sound in Dolby Digital 4.0 is good but inconsistent and sound levels drop at certain times during the movie. This is pretty much a bare bones release, however there is a Brandon Lee profile, featurette and trailer but that's about it.

Just like his father, Brandon Lee was tragically taken from us way too early. From the opening sequence we can see a little glimpse of Bruce Lee in him. Rapid fire is an excellent martial arts movie with some very good fight scenes and explosive action. Brandon Lee using only his hands as weapons unleashes his own fists of fury on the bad guys. Jake Lo witnesses a brutal killing by a drug boss played by Nick Mancuso and quickly realizes he is being hunted by mobsters and corrupt Federal agents. With nowhere to go, He is forced into helping an obsessed Chicago cop and his unit take down the drug cartel once and for all. With the help of the only cop he can trust, Jake Lo sets out to single handedly take down the drug boss for good.

If you're a fan of martial arts or action movies check this one out, I'm sure it won't disappoint. If you're looking for the ultimate Brandon Lee film you must check out the "Crow". Due to Bruce Lee's untimely death in 1973 and Brandon's tragic death in 1993 we'll never see what this father and son martial arts duo could have done on screen together.

(RIP) Bruce and Brandon...........We Miss You!

Lee blazes and fights away in this sometimes good action movie but Lee is the glue that holds this up...remember the fridge part in the movie..yeah, yeah....though Lee sprouts some crappy dialouge you just cant get enough of his beautiful baby face..yes I said that...I highly recommened THE CROW because its his best and last work ever..though if you rent SHOWDOWN IN LITTLE TOKYO starring him and oppisite sucky Doplh Lundgren..somethings wrong with you

RAPID FIRE is definitely a kung fu movie classic, and right now, my favorite Brandon Lee movie (Just about to watch the rather under-recognized LASER MISSION.) Brandon Lee stars as college student/martial arts master Jake Lo, who refuses to join Chinese Democracy activists, since his father was murdered for the very same cause. Lo becomes entangled in a web of diaster when mafia druglord Antonio Serrano (Nick Mancuso) murders the chief distributor of a competing drug lord Kinman Tau (Tzi Ma, from RUSH HOUR)to get ahold of his drug trade. Lo has the unenviable misfortune of witnessing the whole damn thing and must join forces with crusty chicago cop Ryan (Powers Booth) and his beautiful partner (Kate Hodge) to take down both Serrano AND Tau. Once the action starts, it doesn't stop. I think the climatic battle between Brandon and asian bad guy Al Leong (whose had duels with guys like Jean-Claude Van Damme and Bruce Willis) is this movies best and easily the best in '92, and finally one of the best ever. One of the quite abundant brawls even occurs on the chicago el, where Brandon and his opponent mostly just use steel rods as their weapons. A kung fu flick to be cherished by kung fu fans, as well as Brandon Lee fans all over the world. Buy this one right now, you won't regret it.

I agree with Mr. Tindall of Colorado, I would have given "Rapid Fire" 4 and a 1/2 stars but with the problems with the discs I lower my rating to 3 stars. (I realize this is not a 2-disc set, I will clarify my statement in a sec!) I enjoyed this film in which Brandon Lee starred as student Jake Lo.
It was a great film, and it was great to see veteran stunt actor Gene LeBell as one of Cerano's ( Nick Mancuso ) thugs. Gene LeBell ( former pro-wrestler Hank Hangman ) has been in tons of movies over the years most recently ( to my mind ) as the cabbie that pulls his gun on both Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in the first "Rush Hour" movie. It's ironic and rather fitting that Gene also appeared with Brandon's dad Bruce / "Kato" on the TV show "The Green Hornet" as seen on the Brentwood Home Video DVD collection. Gene the burly redhead can be seen in "Rapid Fire" in the big shootout in the bar between Powers Boothe's cops and Cerano's thugs in the middle of the movie. Gene is the one wheeling out the big portable mounted machine gun.
It is here notably, that I experienced my problem with the disc. The next scene where Brandon / Jake fights with Cerano's big Lummox behind the bar, like Mr. Tindall I experience a pause flutter that I have to skip to get around. I've returned the DVD and bought other copies to have them all stop / "flutter" in the same spot. I have a second generation DVD player (i.e. pre- DTS, progressive scan) yet I have played 100's of DVD's in my collection without such problems. I've only experienced one other American DVD problem (I won't touch on problematic import discs) and that is Disney's "Emperor's New Groove" (Similar pause-stop/ flutter at the beginning of that film).
