Forced Vengeance - Chuck Norris (1982) - Star Ferry, Central

Some Star Ferry nostalgia for those people who, like me, wish the service between Central and TST had never changed or moved. Such is life and the way local politicians show, time and again, how out of touch with most peoples' reality they really are.

Anyway, back in 1982, Chuck and the gang are on the run from the bad guys and hop on the ferry from Central over to Tsim Sha Tsui. Chuck even puts his neck on the line by performing his own stunt of jumping from the ferry pier onto the passing ferry.

The Hung Hom sign at the top is to remind everyone that from Central you had a choice of two destinations: Tsim Sha Tsui or Hung Hom. So I guess Chuck and the gang wanted to get the Hung Hom one but ended up at TST instead. They must have done some sneaky maneuvering to escape their pursuers. Anyway, here is where they ended up. I'm pretty sure it is TST-side but am willing to change my mind if someone knows better.

In case you are reading this and hadn't visited HK prior to 2006, you can click on the location link at the bottom of this post and see where the previous Star Ferry piers used to be sited. Of course it is now all under reclamation and the newly created Lung Wo Road.
