Wanna see the real life filming location used for The street fight alley in the movie?

These scenes were actually shot at St. Louis Alley, located in San Fransisco, N. California. Google Map

Though the outdoor sets look real, 90f them were actually built on Fox sound stages, including Chinatown. They featured location above is the real alleyway that they turned into.

The street fight was actually filmed on a set. That same set was later used in music videos from such artists as Micheal Jackson and Janet Jackson. [Thanks to Lisa]

The scenes where Jack is driving Wang to/from the airport were filmed on the "280 Extension", a short length of interstate that runs along the China Basin section of San Francisco from highway 101 north to the south of Market area. This portion of freeway had only been completed about a year at the time of shooting and would rarely experience much traffic. [Thanks to Mike D]
