Rush Hour - Jackie Chan (1998) - The Peak, Hong Kong

Just clearing out a few films with some limited Hong Kong scenes in them, the first of which is Rush Hour

I remember seeing an interview with Brett Ratner where he made a big thing about being a huge Enter the Dragon fan and filming this opening scene from the exact same place as the opening scene in that film. Sorry to break it to you, Brett, but you were way off. This sequence looks like it was shot from the top of the Peak Tower. Whereas those who read this blog will know that the Enter the Dragon opening sequence (reused for Golden Needles) was filmed way over on Peak Road near to the junction with Stubbs Road - around 2 km away to the east, as the crow flies.
