Movie Info

After the death of Bruce Lee in 1973, writer/director Robert Clouse made several attempts to reproduce the success of his Enter the Dragon, which belatedly made Lee a household name in America. Clouse felt (with good reason) that Jackie Chan could be the next big martial arts star in America, and he crafted this feature with him in mind.

Has a lot of serious flaws, despite the presence of its great star.

Audience Reviews for The Big Brawl (Battle Creek Brawl)

Average action-comedy of Jackie Chan's first Hollywood film.

Another failed attempt to make Chan an American superstar. However the movie is pretty good. Watch alongside Hill's Hard Times. Chan and Bronson really should have done a film together, that would've been the greatest movie ever made.
