Knock Off - Jean Claude Van Damme (1997) - Various shots around town.
It seemed pointless to me to add a separate post for each of these seeing as they occupy so little time on screen. It's a little montage of around town shots, at the beginning of the film, just to establish that we are in Hong Kong (and it's 1997). Starting with...
China Hong Kong City in Tsim Sha Tsui
A view across Central
Driving along Chater Road past HSBC
Along Connaught Road next to Admiralty Station
A view (also used again later in the film) across to Wanchai
The Lippo Centre
and finally a view across Kai Tak airport.
Actually, that last one is a cheat because it is seen well into the film and is a quick shot looking up Pedder Street (you can see the famous Pedder Building on the right with the archway) but I figured it was too small a shot for its own post.
