Rush Hour 2 - Jackie Chan (2001) - Austin Road, Tsim Sha Tsui

The US consulate - where Zhang Ziyi places the first bomb - was actually the Tsim Sha Tsui Police station (or more correctly - the District Police HQ) on the corner of the junction of Austin Road and Nathan Road.

In the above shots, Austin Road is going from lower left to centre right and Nathan Road from centre left to bottom right. Although the building itself hasn't been altered for the film, the large hoarding that has been placed on the corner is (obviously) a fake one for the film, although the wall below it is a real wall. These days it is rather more obscured by tree growth.
