Product Description

Box office smash Rush Hour sees Jackie Chan (Rumble In The Bronx) and Chris Tucker (Friday) star in this blockbuster action/comedy about a Hong Kong cop and LAPD maverick teaming up to rescue a Chinese consul's kidnapped daughter.

From Amazon.co.uk

The plot line may sound familiar: Two mismatched cops are assigned as reluctant partners to solve a crime. Culturally they are complete opposites, and they quickly realize they can't stand each other. One (Jackie Chan) believes in doing things by the book. He is a man with integrity and nerves of steel. The other (Chris Tucker) is an amiable rebel who can't stand authority figures. He's a man who has to do everything on his own, much to the displeasure of his superior officer, who in turn thinks this cop is a loose cannon but tolerates him because he gets the job done. Directed by Brett Ratner, Rush Hour doesn't break any new ground in terms of story, stunts, or direction. It rehashes just about every "buddy" movie ever made--in fact, it makes films such as Tango and Cash seem utterly original and clever by comparison. So, why did this uninspired movie make over $120 million at the box office? Was the whole world suffering from temporary insanity? Hardly. The explanation for the success of Rush Hour is quite simple: chemistry. The casting of veteran action maestro Jackie Chan with the charming and often hilarious Chris Tucker was a serendipitous stroke of genius. Fans of Jackie Chan may be slightly disappointed by the lack of action set pieces that emphasize his kung-fu craft. On the other hand, those who know the history of this seasoned Hong Kong actor will be able to appreciate that Rush Hour was the mainstream breakthrough that Chan had deserved for years. Coupled with the charismatic scene-stealer Tucker, Chan gets to flex his comic muscles to great effect. From their first scenes together to the trademark Chan outtakes during the end credits, their ability to play off of one another is a joy to behold, and this mischievous interaction is what saves the film from slipping into the depths of pitiful mediocrity. --Jeremy Storey --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Today, Jackie Chan is one of the biggest names in Hollywood, and the huge success of this film (it grossed over $120 million at the box office) certainly helped him, and gave him that little leg up that he needed to really get in there, afterwards enableing him to make some big budget movies that have themsleves done pretty well. Just when you think you're fed-up to the back teeth of Hollywood's seemingly endless stream of buddy-cop comedies, along comes one like 'Rush Hour' and all is forgiven.
Chan plays Lee, the Hong Kong cop who flies to the States to investigate the kidnapping of little Soo Yung, the daughter of Chinese consul and close friend Han. The trouble is, the Feds want him out of the way so they can get on with solving the crime themselves. So jabber-mouthed LAPD 'tec James Carter is brought on board to keep Lee out of the way - or, at least, that's the intention. Lee pn the otherhand has other ideas and goes about hunting down the kidnappers on his own.
The thing that characterises a Jackie Chan movie is the stunts. Not only the technicality and regularity of them, but the fact that he does them all himself, every single one and for this he has become particularly well known. In 'Rush Hour' the stunts are in abundence, and some of the scenes near the end of the film come to mind. The great thing about this is that when your watching the film (this or anyother Jackie Chan movie) and you see these amazing stunts that make you gasp, you know that they are all done without stunt doubles and make them all the more real, and all the more terrifying to watch.
Probably the main reason for this films huge success is the brilliant teaming of Jackie Chan and the hilarious Chris Tucker. The fastest hands in the east, meet the biggest mouth in the west.

This film is the my favourite films to watch, i have seen it like 30 times or so and never get bored of watching this film. Its funny, the action sequences are good, theres a good plot, the whole thing is basically the whole humour cop/bad guy theme which is a genre that delights me. The difference with this one is that we get an LA tough beet cop and a kung-fu specialist from Hong Kong who we first think speaks no english. The story and twists in the film make it spectacular, there are some really very amusing lines in this film as well.

Overall a must see if you are wanting a fun filled, action packed film thats not heavy and will put a smile on your face when finished. Like i said i enjoy watching this film the most, because it cheers me up every time i watch it. PS this one is a lot better than the second.

Rush Hour is fast, funny and Fantastic. It is 2 hours of non stop entertainment. I have seen the sequel, No where near the Classic. Jackie Chan is amazing as the martial arts expert cop from Hong Kong. Chris Tucker is Hilarious as the fast talking cop from America. What happens when two people like this meet, Excitement and entertainment. This is Jackie's Best Hollywood Movie. I have seen a few Chris Tucker movie, this is his Best performance. I hope the third in the series will entertain as the First. If you have not seen this movie, then i recommend this movie. A great action comedy movie for all type of audience to enjoy. One of the best cop buddy movies since Lethal Weapon.

Chris Tucker does an amazing job of being funny and being an action man! Personally i thought the mix of him and Jackie Chan would never work, but thankfully i was proofed wrong! Jackie Chan with his usual amazing action and at a couple of times he was actually funny. A good storyline, not too complicated, which is pulled off nicely. The extras are also quite interesing, but nothing amazing. You could easily watch this film a couple of times.

Its a great film, and the DVD has some excellent features, but for some reason when the actors are speaking chinese no subtitles appear to tell the viewer what they are saying. WHY? Its not a major thing, but still is dissapointing.

Detective Inspector Lee, close friend to Consul Solon, manages to prevent precious pieces of China's history being smuggled out of the country.

Two years later, Consul Solon is living in L.A with his family, but a Crime Lord takes revenge on him by abducting his young daughter.

The Consul does not trust the FBI, and has Lee flown in to assist. But the FBI do not want any help and officially request help from LAPD, who are glad to get rid of Detective James Carter for a while.

His assignment is to keep Lee as far away from trouble as possible. But Carter and Lee don't like being put aside in that way and start working the case on their own....

Buddy Cop Movies were done to death in the eighties and nineties, and in my opinion, the benchmark is still Lethal weapon, and it's sequel. I didn't really have high hopes for this though. Chan is great, but at the time of this release, all of his back catalogue movies were being re- released for some reason, and Tucker killed the Fifth Element, so this was as good as rubbish to me.

And while the film has an element of Deja vu to it, it entertains, and the two leads are pretty good in their respective roles.

Granted, it's no lethal Weapon, in fact, it's no Tango and cash, as they don't need to rely on exposition to keep the narrative going, and are always good for a repeat viewing.

This is throwaway stuff, tarnished by really awful sequels, but the fight scenes are great as expected.
