I'm here to tell you that Rapid Fire is far and away Brandon Lee's greatest film. And it's a showstopper ranking among the very best action films of the 1990s.

The deft and deadly Lee can turn virtually anything from a wooden door to a tray of silverware into a lethal weapon.

Lee is embracing his Chinese side (his mother is American) unobtrusively to the main attraction: Look at the star power of Brandon Lee.

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

Director Dwight H. Little expertly handles implausible but entertaining action sequences that keep the pic lively despite a schlocky plot and cardboard characterizations.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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