Classic Trailers: Rapid Fire (1992)

Rapid Fire is up there with one of my favorite action films of all time, and it is my favorite Brandon Lee film. It saddens me every time I watch this film how big of a star he would be today if he were still alive. To me, he was so much more then the son of Legendary action star Bruce Lee. Brandon was the whole Hollywood package.

In Rapid Fire, he got to show the world that he has what it takes to make it in the competitive industry of film, and bring his own style of fighting to the screen. I was introduced to the man from this film, and will always remember this trailer for getting me pumped to see it.  Once you hear that song “I’ll Be There” by Hardline while Brandon is kicking people’s asses, and flipping in the air, you just think to yourself: “I want to see this!”

You know what? This trailer, STILL has the same effect on me.
