************************************************** *******************

************************************************** ********************

Jackie Chan's First Strike (120 min.)
The master of martial-arts farce performs his own stunts in this dazzling 1996 action movie. Chan plays a Hong Kong detective who becomes embroiled in the search for a stolen nuclear
warhead when he's sent to the Ukraine. Although slow to start, the pace picks up with a wild snowboard chase, then shifts into high gear when Chan fends off stick-wielding gangsters using a ladder. Other highlights include a death-defying fall from a helicopter and an underwater battle in a shark tank.

Saturday, Feb 15th @ 3:00PM
Showing on TNT (Turner Network Television)
************************************************** ********************

Rumble in the Bronx (120 min.)
After unsuccessfully trying to cross over to US audiences in the '80's with such forgettable fare as "The Big Brawl" and "The Cannonball Run," Asian action superstar Jackie Chan finally scored an American hit with this 1994 martial-arts opus. Chan plays a Hong Kong cop who comes to New York to attend his uncle's wedding. Naturally, he ends up rumbling with some local hoods. While the film is not one of Chan's best (and its purported Bronx setting includes
some hilarious shots of mountains and bays, courtesy of its actual Vancouver locations), it offers ample displays of the star's patented combination of death-defying stunts and gags.

I'd LOVE to know how the producers pulled where on the top ten each martial went, out of their ass...

(Talking about the ultimate 10 martial arts)

What they don't show is that immediately after the underwear clad Japanese guys finished bowing to Rickson, he was tackled from behind by Yoshida and subbed in less than 10 seconds.

Then paid 3 Million Yen by the Yakuza for his job in making it look somewhat convincing.

After further investigation, i don't think "Bloodsport" has much factual background. I'm a little leary of Dux. Isn't he supposed to have a "secret" Medal of Honor? That's the CONGRESSIONAL Medal of Honor. All of Congress keeping a secret? Since when?

Chuck you're right, Frank Dux (Bloodsport) is a total fraud! But, as far as entertainment goes, I think the movie is watchable. Also, there is a lot of different stylists shown fighting. Out of this list I love the first 5 minutes of "Rumble in the Bronx" - it shows Jackie Chan walking on his hands and then he walks up to the wooden dummy and displays some awesome speed.....

enjoy.

i dont' think so.... I do a wooden dummy form and believe me, he knows what he's doing. Jackie Chan has a LOT of talent!!
