James Carter comes to Hong Kong for a holiday with Inspector Lee. However at the same time a bomber is striking key American targets. Carter and Lee get drawn into an investigation into a counterfeiting ring run by Ricky Tan and his new partner Hu Li. Before long their up to their necks in trouble again.

The story doesn't matter because basically it's this - Carter talks funny to somebody while Lee is distracted, it then all kicks off and Lee does lots of fancy moves, it then moves to a different location and the pattern repeats again. Essentially that's it - but it doesn't matter, it worked the first time and it works again here. The story is better than the first film's, although the twists don't work as well as they think they do.

The main improvement since the first movie is that there's more fighting action. In RH Jackie Chan's fighting was toned down to make room for Tucker's comedy. In RH2 Chan is allowed to have much more action and the addition of Zhang Ziyi ups the ante all the more. Tucker still gets to do his big-mouthed comedy and have plenty of banter between him and Chan, be sexual with girls and fight. It's not breaking new ground but it's quite fun.

Chan and Tucker are very good, mainly because they're having fun and comfortable with each other. Lone adds class and menace as Ricky Tan and Sanchez adds spice as the beautiful Isabella. The best addition is Zhang Ziyi - she doesn't have any character but she can certainly move! The cast also has very funny cameos from Don Cheadle and Jeremy Piven - adding laughs and class.

The only problem with the film is that it is so very formulaic and is just a simple crowd pleaser.

Wow went to see this film when it was on at the pictures. i liked the first film even though the reviews werent great. Once again the critics didnt rate this film that only made me more eager to see it. When the action gets going its non stop and if that doesnt get you hooked than the fact you will have trouble turning the dvd off through your tears of laughter will. The stunts of jackie chan are awesome and the gags match.

I did not really enjoy the first Rush Hour, it was entertaining but not a film that I could watch too many times.
Rush Hour 2 is a completly different kettle of fish, it's excellent. It's almost the perfect comedey/action movie.
Both Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan are excellent as a comedy duo and both did their bit in the action/fighting scenes (obviously Jackie Chan's stunts and skills stood out)
I brought this after my friend recommended it, it did not dissapoint me and it won't dissapoint you. If you loved the first one you will love this, if you like action movies you will love this.........whatever your preferences you will love this.

Those of you who have seen and enjoyed Rush hour will not be dissappointed by the sequel. The combination of Jackie Chan's unbelievable action with Chris Tucker's humour make yet again another hit. It is definitely worth watching and adding to any movie buffs collection. Fantastic!!!

Also bought this for a friend. As before, I think his Hong Kong films are better. The U.S. don't know how best to use Jackie Chan in their films.
