Movie Info

When a Chinese diplomat’s daughter is kidnapped in Los Angeles, he calls in Hong Kong Detective Inspector Lee (Jackie Chan) to assist the FBI with the case. But the FBI doesn’t want anything to do with Lee, and they dump him off on the LAPD, who assign wisecracking Detective James Carter (Chris Tucker) to watch over him. Although Lee and Carter can’t stand each other, they choose to work together to solve the case on their own when they figure out they’ve been ditched by both the FBI and police.

Audience Reviews for Rush Hour

May 17, 2020

While this formulaic bit of buddy cop comedy kinda works, it kinda works on the back of Chris Tucker’s black-man-playing-blackface-for-the-modern-day – “ghetto” riffing, which is practically nonstop throughout the piece. It’s embarrassing as hell that Hollywood still plays this card, and that black guys still need to play it. to get work. I thought that some ching-chang Chinese slur was a certainty, given Tucker’s obvious pandering to white ideas of what black people act and sound like, but no doubt Jackie Chan thankfully nixed that (but for some little throwaways here and there). There’s some story about catching kidnappers, but it’s only a cover for Tucker’s movie-long blackface routine. Still, it was successful, so I must be part of the extreme minority to find this yuk-yuk flippancy offensive. In this day and age? Only about 20 years ago.

A buddy comedy film that has been done so many times before but the miss match cops work well together on set, We have Jackie Chan with the great action scenes and Chris Tucker for the comedy they make the old script work well that’s funny and entertaining and worth watching.

Which Rush Hour Movie Is The Best

Feb 16, 2014

The buddy-cop film Rush Hour is an exciting action/comedy from Brett Ratner. Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan star as a pair of unorthodox detectives who are put on a task force to help the Chinese consulate in L.A. recover his kidnapped daughter. Chan delivers his usual dynamic martial arts style that’s full of flare and energy, and Tucker brings a lot of lively comedy. Still, things get a little too cartoonish at times and the plot’s fairly predictable. While it’s hardly original, Rush Hour is good, lighthearted fun.
