Product Description

Third instalment of the popular action series starring Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan. While in Paris, Chief Inspector Lee's (Chan) latest assignment is to escort and to protect Chinese Ambassador Han (Tzi Ma) as he delivers a major address before the World Criminal Court Summit in Los Angeles. While delivering his announcement, he is shot and nearly killed. Meanwhile, former LAPD Detective James Carter (Tucker), who has recently been demoted to traffic duty, just happens to be listening to the radio when the tragedy occurs. He rushes to the scene to help, but instead interferes with Lee's pursuit of the culprit. To get his status back, Carter teams up with Lee one more time to help track down the assassins. With the trail leading to Paris, both will find themselves in unfamiliar territory.

From Amazon.co.uk

Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker head for the City of Lights in the somewhat threadbare but sporadically exciting Rush Hour 3, the second sequel to director Brett Ratner's 1998 cop-buddy hit. Chan's Inspector Lee and Tucker's Detective Carter hop from Los Angeles to Paris in pursuit of a Chinese triad only to find a mixed reception, including a brutal warning from a French cop (Roman Polanski) and anti-American sentiments from a cab driver (Yvan Attal) who eventually becomes an important and funny ally. Lee and Carter, when not fighting their way out of rooms full of martial arts gangsters and crazed assassins (Sun Ming Ming), follow a trail to a beautiful woman (Noemie Lenoird) who literally carries a vital clue on her person. Lee also holds secret meetings with a United Nations authority (Max Von Sydow), but his personal struggles with a criminal mastermind (Hiroyuki Sanada)--who happens to be an important figure in his life-- are at the heart of this movie.

The aging Chan still seems to defy the laws of physics with some of his more spectacular stunts. But it's true those stunts take a little more time than they used to, and judicious editing makes Chan look spry as ever. He frets charmingly in Rush Hour 3, while Tucker revives his brash character's motormouth guile and whiny womanizing. There isn't a lot left to be discovered about Lee and Carter's compatibility, and even with a minor crisis over their loyalty to one another in Rush Hour 3, their all-important relationship is almost too easy to take for granted now. Fortunately, the film's biggest thrills come from several wild fight scenes, especially a climactic battle on the Eiffel Tower that is rich in imagination. --Tom Keogh

4.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says on the movie poster 3 Dec 2007
By Valleysboy VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Rush Hour 3 is very much in the vein of the first, and especially second instalments. With that in mind if you enjoyed the first two then you'll definitely enjoy this one, which I did. The laughs come thick and fast and the chop-socky is once again great, although Jackie is starting to show the creaks a bit with his partner taking some of the slack.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Transfer, Shame About The Movie 25 Mar 2010
By DL Productions UK TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you're looking at this, you're probably a big fan of the series - Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker, cops just trying to solve crimes often get involved in comical shenanigans to help someone, and this 3rd instalment is no different; they have to find the leader of the Triads before a crime wave engulfs the world, Lee isn't that chuffed about Carter wanting to tag on, but when it comes to the crunch, they really need each other.

This is your usual fare from Tucker and Chan, high octane action, stupid jokes and at times rather confrontational. I didn't really like Yvan Attal in this at all, he should stick to films like Le Serpent, where he can be taken seriously, instead of spouting off silly stereotypes in his taxi and acting like a fool. Noémie Lenoir was good in this and shows signs of being a good actress.

This is a mediocre film that really didn't deserve such a high bitrate conversion to Blu-Ray, but at least it was done properly, the image is stunning and bright, the colours suit the palate, and the sound is deafening with it's 7.1 mix. This is truly a decent release!

You do get commentaries on the movie though, which is handy, otherwise the rest of the extras are on disk 2, which contains the making of, deleted scenes and out-takes. This is just as good as the 2 disk DVD edition, which in a way is good, but really they could have done with the HD treatment.

Pretty good release.

3.0 out of 5 stars As good as 1 &2...hmmmm 14 Jan 2008
Format:DVD
Now, straight off the bat, Is this as good as 1 & 2? err...probably not. Is this still a good movie?, yeh. Though i think rush hour 1 and 2 were better I would still recommend watching rush hour 3 even if its just to complete watching the trilogy, not to say thats the only reason to watch this. I myself wasn't quite expecting a laugh fest from this movie like i got from the previous ones, and did find myself letting out a little heh at some scenes but like i said i was expecting that. But even with that said, there are funny scenes in the film, its usually chris tuckers one liners that does it for me,and lots of action, and yeh, even though chris tucker has gotten kinda bigger and jackie chan has gotten kinda old the action scenes are still well done and really exciting. Overall its a good watch if you want action & comedy or to just pass the time. Also i hear talk that there COULD be a rush hour 4 in the works, if it turns out to be true hopefully it'll be better......hopefully.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sporadic rush hour 12 July 2008
By Michael Watson TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
When you watch a Jackie Chan movie, you know what you are going to get. When you watch a film which similarly includes Chris Tucker - now for the third instalment - you also know that you'll have to listen to a high-pitched motormouth who has a large ego where women are concerned.

But, no matter. I knew all this so I, frankly, pretty much enjoyed the film. There's very little story (even if there were, it would follow the usual triad stuff) but some of the action scenes are breath-taking. I know editing plays a part (large, probably) but so what. A film like is for spectacle not for serious accreditation by the Cannes Film Festival.

In that regard, if you like Jackie Chan, if you like really great martial arts scenes, then just enjoy the film. And there's always the added bonus of the retakes after the end of the film. How JC is not hobbling on crutches permanently, I'll never know!!

Ah look, as you have most likely heard by now, this is not as good as the first two films and it's just a little bit tired in formula. However, it's still a bunch of fun if you already buy into the fastest mouth/fastest hands pairing of Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan. The plot is incidental, thus simple, and the emphasis here is more on fun than electrifying action. Though the finale here is edge of the seat exciting and laugh inducing in equal measure. There's some truly good one liners thrown out and the chemistry between the two actors is still very much evident.

Undemanding it is for sure, even disposable if it was to be judged as a single action/comedy entry, but it closes the trilogy down safe enough and the smile should rarely leave your face upon viewing. 6.5/10

2.0 out of 5 stars At least it's an improvement over Rush Hour 2 28 July 2009
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
So, is there anything good to say about Rush Hour 3? Not much, but there's less bad to say about it than Rush Hour 2, which is something to be grateful for at least. For starters, Brett Ratner has remembered that Jackie Chan's in the movie too and gives him something to do this time instead of pretty much reducing him to reaction shots to Chris Tucker's endless witless improvisation. Unfortunately not much of it is done very well, with rushed action scenes and - unforgivably - some pretty obvious CGi and stunt doubling which makes it pretty clear that after three films he still doesn't get what the whole point of putting Jackie Chan in a movie is. Still, Chan has at least one good stunt with a flag before it develops into too much of a spinoff of one used in A View to a Kill (and on the same Eiffel Tower location).

There's both less and more of the newly Supersized Tucker this time round: fewer of his unimaginatively improvised rants make the cut this time, but there's a lot more of him in an auditioning for Big Mamma's House 3 way. The comedy isn't exactly well executed, varying from a bad version of Yu's On First that suffers from lousy comic timing from both Tucker and the film's editor, Tucker pulling a gun on Yvan Attal's French cabbie because he - entirely reasonably - doesn't want to drive Tucker (not because he's black but because he's a loud and obnoxious American) to an anal exam by Roman Polanski's French police inspector with a Clouseau `tache. Just to show he's not playing favorites this time, Ratner ensures that the action scenes are just as typically lazily staged as if to prove that the surprisingly good ones in X-Men 3 were a one-off that probably owed more to a well storyboarded second unit than him finally learning how to shoot action.
