Rumble in the Bronx

Welcome to America.

Jackie Chan was already a battle-hardened movie vet in 1995, but when this hit American theaters, it introduced him to a whole new fan base.

What they got to see was a dude who did all of his own stunt work, combined knock-down brawls with comedy, and was as resilient as they come.

Chan badly injured his leg jumping onto a hovercraft during shooting (as seen in the outtakes at the end of the film), but kept on going, wearing a cast designed to look like a tennis shoe.

Death to a tendon, birth of a legend.
