After years pleasing fans on his home turf, Jackie Chan finally broke into American multiplexes with the 1998 hit Rush Hour. In one of many tips of his hat acknowledging the late great Bruce, Chan plays Hong Kong-based Detective Inspector Lee who finds himself on the streets of LA assisted by motor-mouthed Detective Carter (Chris Tucker). The baddy's identity, his motive and exactly how the good guys will win in the end is all rather secondary to seeing lots of goons dispatched by increasingly flamboyant and jaw-dropping stunts. The inevitable showdown with nasty henchman Sang fulfils all Chan fans' expectations nicely. What genuinely made this an international success was the pairing of Chan with Tucker, who won Blockbuster Entertainment and MTV Movie awards for Best On-screen Duo.

On the DVD: After a flawless anamorphic 16:9 presentation with a choice of 5.1 or 2.0 Stereo, the extras package is generous to say the least. Animated menus with excerpts from Lalo Schifrin's superb score link to the usual fare: trailer, cast and crew biographies in scrolling text, two music videos for Heavy D's "Nuttin But Love" and Dru Hill's "How Deep is Your Love", and six deleted scenes totalling three minutes. Additionally there's a highly enthusiastic commentary from director Brett Ratner and a very peculiar 40-minute short from Ratner's NYU Film School days (funded by Steven Spielberg) called Whatever Happened To Mason Reese. The real jewel is the documentary "A Piece of the Action" consisting of 17 featurettes and totalling 40 minutes. It includes a fascinating 10- minute segment of Chan choreographing a fight scene from scratch and some hilarious outtakes not already featured in the end titles. --Paul Tonks

1.0 out of 5 stars Rush Hour Blu-ray 26 Oct 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Very disappointed. Has not been remastered. Picture quality is no better than the Dvd. What a waste of money. I thought the idea of Blu-ray is to have far better picture and sound. Not so with a lot of the older ones as the companys are too lazy too re-master them. They just put the same quality onto a blu-ray disc just to get more money out of us suckers. Highly disappointed with the quality on this. If you have the Dvd then don't waste your money on the blu-ray. It's no better.

5.0 out of 5 stars my most favourite film. 8 Jan 2007
By Amo, UK
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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast, Funny and Fantastic 22 April 2007
By Jay
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and Action! 10 Aug 2003
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great film, great DVD but...... 15 July 2001
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.
