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.
