Rumble in the Bronx is a 1995 Hong Kong martial arts action comedy film starring Jackie Chan and Anita Mui. Released in Hong Kong in 1995, Rumble in the Bronx had a successful theater run, and brought Chan into the American mainstream. The film is set in the Bronx area of New York City but was filmed in and around Vancouver, Canada.

Ma Hon Keung (Jackie Chan), is a Hong Kong cop who comes to New York to attend the wedding of his Uncle, Bill (Bill Tung) and Whitney. The couple are in the process of selling their successful multicultural supermarket to Elaine (Anita Mui).
Ma finds himself defending those around him against the actions of a biker gang, led by Tony (Marc Akerstream), but becomes targeted. Among them is Nancy (Françoise Yip), a lingerie model/dancer and the elder sister of Danny (Morgan Lam), whom Keung befriends after being introduced by his neighbour, Uncle Bill.
Realising the errors of her ways, a relationship forms between Nancy and Keung, but the small-time gangsters become the victims of a much larger and more effective criminal syndicate led by White Tiger (Kris Lord), when a member named Angelo (Garvin Cross) steals illegal diamonds after a deal goes bad. Both Keung and the gang find themselves coming to a truce as they try to overcome the syndicate, who are determined to retrieve the diamonds by any means.
