'''''Rumble in the Bronx''''' is a 1996 film starring JackieChan and developed specifically as an attempt for him to break into the Western film market, after some failed attempts in the past (which tried to mimic [[SylvesterStallone Stallone]] or [[Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger Schwarzenegger]] type serious action films, this film is unabashedly Jackie Chan style). Considering it opened at #1 at the box office, Chan succeeded beautifully and joined the Hollywood mainstream.

* TheMountainsOfIllinois: Very little of this film was shot anywhere near New York. They mostly fake it acceptably, but mountains show up in one or two shots.
