Rumble in the Bronx (1995)

CITY-TV, 9 p.m. For about three days after we watch a Jackie Chan movie, my partner likes to jump out from behind furniture doing karate chops and leg kicks and yelling "Jackie Chan!" As my mother likes to say about a diet rich in beans, it can keep you regular. So can a diet rich in Chan's kinetic films, in which he likes to rumble with bad guys using everything but the kitchen sink. In this outing, his weapons include refrigerators, grocery carts and even a wheelchair. Because superhero Chan is always good (in a sweet, approachable way that someone like Schwarzenegger never achieves), said wheelchair, home to some ill-gotten jewels, is also occupied by a little boy, meaning Chan can get the bad guys while helping the less fortunate. Look for Vancouver mountains on that Bronx horizon.
