Double Impact - Jean Claude Van Damme (1991) - Sai Yeung Choi Street, Mongkok

Just a quick grab from a pick up shot taken somewhere in Kowloon grabbed my attention because it looked very familiar to me but I could place it. Along to the rescue comes Thomas again with the identification of Sai Yeung Choi St near Soy Street.

Here's what Thomas had to say in his comments... Sai Yeung Choi Street in Mong Kong. The building on the left showed 新時代電器中心。 That building still exist and is between Soy and Dundas. The ground floor of it is littered with mobile service carriers and mobile device vendors. The second floor for some time was a Gym, but is not vacant. It would seem the Sasa chain would occupy it in no time...

There is actually another give away. In the background there is a red vertical business sign saying 中喬國貨 (Chung Kiu China Products Department Store). The store is long gone but the building still exist. That was the corner of Shan Tung Street.
So there you go, pretty definitive I would say. Once again thanks to Thomas. Here is a modern comparison (at least an approximate one).
