Product Description

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.

Brilliant special features, excellent picture and sound (except for a spot in the 5.1 version near the beginning) and a lovely movie. Unfortunately, The DVD has no English subtitles for the Chinese speaking parts. This is inexcusable. If you want the subtitles, get the VHS version as well.
Good film, though.

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.

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.
