Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"As for the movie, the makers of Casablanca can sleep peacefully. Come to think of it, so can the makers of Ernest Scared Stupid."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"The late great Brandon Lee at the height of his powers."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"Rapid Fire is full of mindless, cynical action, elaborately choreographed fight scenes and spontaneous and perpetual mayhem."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"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."
‑ Richard Harrington, Washington Post
"A fantastic action thriller with Brandon Lee center stage and showing what he's capable of as a hero and action star."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Really fun martial arts movie. Lee borrows from Jackie Chan, but lots of charisma."
‑ Fred Topel, About.com
"Rapid Fire boasts some pretty good action, a few well-choreographed fights and a self-deprecating sense of humor, none of which is able to raise the film above the ordinary."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Rapid Fire is a movie weary almost onto death with the sameness of its genre."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"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."
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
"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."
‑ Scott Weinberg, Apollo Guide
