Product Overview

One's all talk...the other's all action...Jackie Chan (Rumble in the Bronx, First Strike) and Chris Tucker (Money Talks, Friday) mix punches with punchlines in this hilarious action-comedy. Chan is a tough Hong Kong cop in Los Angeles to solve the kidnapping of a Chinese diplomats' daughter. But the FBI wants none of his help and recruits a fast-talking LAPD detective (Tucker) to babysit him. Cultures clash and tempers flare as these two cops from different worlds quickly discover one thing in common: they can't stand each other. With time running out, they must join forces to catch the criminals--if they don't kill each other first!

Reviews
ReviewSource ReelViews
Review Considering his recent surge in American popularity, it was all-but-inevitable that Jackie Chan would eventually show up in a big-budget Hollywood action picture. (He hasn't been in one since he did the Cannonball Run films back in the early '80s.) That production is Rush Hour, a somewhat lackluster cop buddy movie that goes wrong in two big ways: (1) it fails to utilize Chan's full range of skills, relegating him to the role of a kickboxing action hero and virtually ignoring his comedic aptitude, and (2) it saddles him with a partner, played by the irritating Chris Tucker...There's little doubt that Rush Hour is going to be a success at the box office, and, given audiences' love of sequels, Rush Hour 2 is probably already in the planning stages. Let's hope that next time around, the director uses his lead actor as something more than Tucker's straight man. On this occasion, as Chan moved from Hong Kong to Hollywood, something got lost in the translation.

Review Those rabid with expertise on Chan's work can nit-pick this movie for its on-and-off faults--the story is lacking, the action misses here and there, he's too serious, Chris Tucker gets way too obnoxious, everything wraps up too easily, etc., etc., etc. But who cares? Most of the time, "Rush Hour" gets it right. Tucker maintains his manic energy without becoming too grating and, when he drops to a saner level, actually shares some nice moments with Chan. Chan, meanwhile, is in fine form--nimble, fun and reserved. It's the best acting he's done in a while, which makes it all the more exhilarating to watch him dance through the well-choreographed fight scenes. Despite the inordinate amount of cliches tossed about, the characters have heart, the film has energy and a relatively solid story comparatively. Director Brett Ratner finds just the right tone of serious story meets fun-filled action.
