Movie Info

Brandon Lee (son of famed martial-arts film star, Bruce Lee) stars as a young art student who happens to witness a drug murder and is placed in protective custody by federal agents.

Critic Reviews for Rapid Fire

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (11) | DVD (6)

The movie is shameless in exploiting the father-son connection to try to make the star, who exudes a bored, dead-eyed cool, seem sympathetic.

Brandon Lee may want to follow in his father's kick-steps, but unlike martial arts legend Bruce Lee, he's far too pretty for the job.

Rapid Fire is a movie weary almost onto death with the sameness of its genre.

As for the movie, the makers of Casablanca can sleep peacefully. Come to think of it, so can the makers of Ernest Scared Stupid.

A fantastic action thriller with Brandon Lee center stage and showing what he's capable of as a hero and action star.

Cinema Crazed

It's not a great picture by any means, yet there are highlights in Rapid Fire worth savoring, most centered on Lee's martial art choreography.

Full Review… | August 20, 2012

The late great Brandon Lee at the height of his powers.

December 12, 2005

Really fun martial arts movie. Lee borrows from Jackie Chan, but lots of charisma.

August 13, 2003

As far as mindless cookie-cutter action movies go, you could certainly do much worse than Rapid Fire, though that's hardly a ringing endorsement.

Apollo Guide

Rapid Fire is full of mindless, cynical action, elaborately choreographed fight scenes and spontaneous and perpetual mayhem.

Full Review… | January 1, 2000
Austin Chronicle

Rapid Fire boasts some pretty good action, a few well-choreographed fights and a self-deprecating sense of humor, none of which is able to raise the film above the ordinary.

Awesome! Brandon Lee's film is a fast-packed action in his martial arts sequences against the mobsters and drug lord.

I only give 2 stars for films Brandon Lee died in.
