Knock Off - Jean Claude Van Damme (1997) - Waterloo Road, Kowloon

Just before JCVD visits his buddy Eddie and the mass chase and fight ensue, there is a brief glimpse of the Yau Ma Tei fruit market as seen from Waterloo Road. Most of the action is supposed to be happening inside the various warehouses and cock lofts of the buildings inside the fruit market.

Despite the wholesale fruit market being a fairly well-established part of Kowloon life, we've only come across it once before on this blog (so far).

As you can see even since 1997 a new high rise has gone up down the road (at the junction with Shanghai Street), but there is still plenty other buildings around including the block on the left of both the screen grabs and the Streetview picture. It's the Wah Tak building built circa 1964.
