Rumble in the Bronx is about a police officer and a former Hong Kong martial arts champion, Keong, who comes from Hong Kong to visit New York for his uncle's wedding. His uncle runs a market in the Bronx and Keong offers to help out while Uncle is on his honeymoon. During his stay in the Bronx, Keong befriends a neighbor kid and beats up some neighborhood thugs who cause problems at the market. Meanwhile, one of those petty thugs in the local gang stumbles into a criminal situation way over his head. Blinded by greed, his involvement draws his gang, the kid, Keong, and the whole neighborhood into a deadly crossfire. When the lazy cops fail to successfully resolve matters, Keong takes things into his own hands. Needless to say, much spectacular kung-fu and outrageous action sequences follow. With a production budget of US$ 7.5 millions, the gross worldwide box office revenues amounted to US$ 32 millions.

The film was also nominated for 1996 Hong Kong Film Awards for Best Fight (Jackie Chan), Best Actor (Jackie Chan), Best Actress (Anita Mui), and Best Supporting Actress (Françoise Yip.)
