I once heard the difference between Hong Kong and Hollywood filmmaking described thus (mostly referring to True Lies, but relevant here also):

"IN AMERICA, they spend half a million dollars building a prop Harrier and have two or three stunt guys in safety harnesses dressed like the star. In Hong Kong, they rent a Harrier for an afternoon and have Jackie Chan climb around on it (and pray he doesn't fall off or get sucked into an engine or something)."
