All Critics (16) | Top Critics (4)

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.

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.
