Foxbat - Henry Silva (1977) - Pok Fu Lam Road Bus Terminus, Kennedy Town

The start of what has to be the film's action centre piece - a car versus bus chase through Hong Kong streets - kicks off at the bus terminus along Pok Fu Lam Road just opposite Pokfield Road. A-Cheung narrowly escapes being kidnapped by the baddies (led by Roy Chiao) and makes his escape in a hospital ambulance quickly followed by his captors, and Henry Silva steals a yellow double decker bus and chases after them all.

The building on the opposite side of the road in the thrid picture is 10-16 Pokfield Rd, a residential building that is still around. The terrace with the car parked on it is still a car aprk but the brick retaining wall looks to have been hacked away at the end and replaced by a covered walkway that loops down into Pokfield Road.
