The Big Brawl, (traditional Chinese: 殺手壕) also known as Battle Creek Brawl, was a 1980 martial arts film which marked Jackie Chan’s first attempt to break into the American movie market. It was directed by Robert Clouse and featured much of the crew from Enter the Dragon.
The film is set primarily in Chicago, Illinois in the 1930s (although it was shot in Texas) and follows Chan’s character, a Chinese American martial artist, as he single handedly takes on the Mafia.
The Big Brawl was a flop and led to Chan being advised to try supporting roles such as the Japanese racing car driver in Cannonball Run. Chan later made another attempt to break into the American market with 1985’s The Protector, which suffered the same fate as this film. It wasn’t until 1995 with Rumble in the Bronx that Chan was able to bring his signature humor mixed with impressive stunt-work to American audiences.
The film featured an appearance from Lenny Montana, who had famously played Luca Brasi in The Godfather.
