Product Description

Product Description

A con artist, Hatchett (Chris Tucker), is arrested and hand-cuffed to Villard (Gerard Ismaël), an international diamond smuggler. When Villard makes an escape on the way to prison, he takes Hatchett as a hostage, killing anyone who gets in his way. Hatchett escapes before he becomes Villard's next victim and is determined to clear his name, even though both Villard and the LAPD want him dead. Only the help of a television newsman (Charlie Sheen), who wants exclusive rights to the 'cop killer' story, can help him prove his innocence.

From Amazon.co.uk

This formulaic 1997 comedy becomes needlessly complicated at points but feeds off the high energy of Chris Tucker (The Fifth Element, Rush Hour). Tucker plays a two-bit con man, Franklin Hatchett, framed for the prison breakout of a ruthless criminal. Hunted by both the police and the bad guys, Hatchett finds his only hope in a smarmy, self-serving television reporter played by the perfectly cast Charlie Sheen (Platoon), who agrees to protect the nervous, hapless patsy only to further his own career. The plot of Money Talks is at times just plain dumb, and the requisite car chases and explosions happen a bit too frequently. But Tucker's manic energy and off-the-wall humour, as he is thrown into situations of mistaken identity and mortal danger, make the movie a frenetic and entertaining romp. --Robert Lane --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This film is so much fun to watch, so funny, it is a classic comedy, I have watched it dozens of times, probably rated an 18 because it came out some time ago, there's plenty of swearing and limited violence, but no sex scenes. If it was rated today I would probably be rated 15, they should change the category for a wider audience.

Very funny action comedy but it all depends if you like Chris Tucker's rapid motormouth as basically he is what sells this film and why it works so well. His comedic banter with Charlie Sheen and Paul Sorvino et al is a joy to behold and I find the film as fresh and funny as I did when I first saw on a VHS rental from BlockBuster video in 1998.

A 1997 comedy feeding off the high energy of Chris Tucker (The Fifth Element, Rush Hour, Rush Hour 2) . Tucker plays a con man, Franklin Hatchett, framed for the prison breakout of a mad french criminal. Hunted by both the police and two sets of bad guys, Hatchett finds his only hope in a self-serving television reporter played by the perfectly cast Charlie Sheen (Platoon), who agrees to protect the nervous, hapless patsy only to scoop the real story. The plot of Money Talks is at times are simple, which makes it very easy to follow and extremely funny, with car chases and explosions happening alot throughout th film. But Tucker's off-the-cuff humour, as he is thrown into situations of false identity and mortal danger, make the movie entertaining.
This is one not to be missed, and is up there with the humour and action of Rush Hour 1 & 2.

A low-level smooth talking hustler by the name of Franlin Hatchet (Chris Tucker) is on the run from the police, after a jailbreak. Which he is falsely accused of planning a violent jailbreak. Now the whole city is on his trail and the only one, who could clear his name is an ambitious television reporter James Russell (Charlie Sheen). Which is the only reason why Franklin was sent to prison, because of James. Now together, they find each other mixed-up with cops, crooks and euro-trash bad guys. Which Franklin knows that the man (Gerard Ismael) was chained-up with in the bus. He was trying to retrieve a fortune in diamonds.

Enjoyment of "Money Talks'' depends mainly on how funny one finds Chris Tucker. All the other elements -- story, production values, and performances -- are secondary. "Money Talks'' is what they used to call a star vehicle. It's a showcase to introduce an alleged comic talent and see if the public goes for him. I wouldn't quit laughing at Tucker's jokes and comedic overtones, and after viewing the film, Money Talks is more of a modernization of "48 Hrs."

Franklin Hatchett (Tucker) is the small-time hustler and con artist, going to prison after being set up by ace TV reporter James Russell (Sheen) in a ticket scalping scam. On the way to the pen, Franklin inadvertently becomes involved in a jail break orchestrated by the evil Villard (Gerard Ismael) and his personal army. One problem: the cops think Franklin is behind the whole scheme. Not knowing whom to turn to, Franklin gives James a call. The two make a deal: James will hide and protect Franklin for a weekend in exchange for an exclusive when Franklin turns himself in. There are a few complications, however. First, Villard wants Franklin dead. Second, James has just been fired from his TV job after being described by his boss (David Warner) as "another walking headshot" from the "John Tesh school of journalism." Third, this weekend, James is scheduled to marry Grace (Heather Locklear), the beautiful daughter of the very wealthy Guy Cipriani (Paul Sorvino).

One of the best thing that can be said about "Money Talks" is that director Brett Ratner obviously knows that he is reworking a over familiar formula, and he desperately tries to keep things moving. There are lots of classic Lalo Schifrin chase music, and plenty of shoot outs and exploding helicopters and of course the absurd secondary characters.

Nothing wrong with the movie itself, make no mistake! However, the item itself looked like a cheap copy! It was NOT factory sealed as promised and the print was running (as could expect to happen if an ink jet printout gets wet), which most definitely shouldn't happen if the cover was original. The CD itself looked also like a copy - no prints on it or nothing. The good news is that it worked... so I guess what am I here to complain... and the price was right too.

You get two of the best actors in the world and put them in two totally oposite rolls, Charlie Sheen as a news reporter living the high life, (his finest film yet), he is constantly showed up by comedy genious Chris Tucker who is a car wash attendant who deals stolen goods out the back, (This is better than Rush Hour 1 and 2, this is a few years older but much funnier).
This is one film not to miss.
