That was funny!! Great movie
@BrightonMatt
That's Chris Tucker. And he doesn't ruin this movie. In my opinion, he one the main reason to watch this movie.
A good movie but Chris Rock just ruins is with his super high pitch voice
One of the best movies I have ever seen!


Rush Hour is a very fun cop buddy movie. It doesn't cover any new ground and follows the staple diet that makes others like the Lethal Weapon series so popular. What it does do however is include Jackie Chan with his martial arts prowess. The man is THE master and does all his own stunts - what a guy, just a shame you don't see more of it. Neverless it doesn't loose any appeal over multiple viewing.
FUN, NO BRAINER. THE TWO LEADS HAVE GREAT CHEMISTRY.
Rush hour is a classic comedy of two cops from different sides of the world teaming up. The sheer character devolpment is gold in both Chan and Tucker, you get a sense that there friendship is strong and this begs for a trilogy. Lots of comedy and action blend together for a very well done movie. Anyone who rates this movie under an eight should have there head checked. Great movie great time.
Great movie. Wished they allowed us to have more of Jackie's choreography. Otherwise, the scenes there were great! Rush Hour II gets better in this aspect as well as the dynamic duo chemistry and dialogues.
6.25/10
good!
BANG!
Hey all. I was just thinking I'd put in some more ratings so that theres a more comprehensive list in the ratings section of the best blog ever. Well, at least the second-best blog ever.

Don't ask about the movies and why I chose them to be rated. They just popped into my head, alright?
review to come
Funny and entertaining.
Action / Adventure
Rat Race - Has it's highlights. But gets kind of boring.

Rush Hour - Great Comedy/Action flick.

Rush Hour 2 - Not as good as original, but a pretty good sequel.

Road Trip - Funny plot line, could have been better.

Gone in 60 Seconds - Probably another one of my top 25 movies.
.....
looking back at the two Rush Hour films, especially in light of recent years output of similar type of films, really makes me appreciate them both a lot more than i used to when they were first released. i always loved the first Rush Hour film, and it's still just as good but i gotta say even Rush Hour 2 feels like it's a lot better than i remembered it to be. in this day and age of effects-filled action films, they feel like a throwback to the action movies of the 80's, like Lethal Weapon (obviously) and the like, when it was more about characters and just straight action instead of elaborate visual effects trickery. i mean, i like a good effects movie too, but they're so common these days that "retro" films like Rush Hour and Rush Hour 2 feel like a much welcomed change of pace.

of course, a lot of the success of these films comes from the pairing of Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker. they're definitely one of the oddest couples in the buddy-cop subgenre, and they just work. Tucker can be way too over the top and grating, and i don't think i could muster a film with him in the lead, but here with Chan he's more balanced out and he's mostly funny rather than grating. as for Chan, he does his usual thing and it's what made him a superstar.. i can't say i've seen that many of his films, but the Rush Hours are certainly among his best.

i'd also like to praise Brett Ratner (yes, praise Brett Ratner) for actually making films that aren't totally ADD and "MTV". he got his start in music videos, yet his films feel more traditional.. i know he gets a lot of flack, and i'm not saying he's some brilliant director, but compared to some other music video directors turned feature film directors of late, he almost does seem like he's on a whole other (better) level. just look at Torque for example, directed by hot-shot music video director Joseph Kahn, and it's basically a 90 minute music video. Ratner may not be the best director in the world, but i'm glad he's not hopped up on making music video-like films. the fact that his films don't use much CGI makes him seem more traditional than most directors these days (directors of major blockbuster films that is).

i actually read just this past week that Rush Hour 3 seems to be headed to the screen for release next year, and i must say i look forward to it. i just hope Ratner, Chan and Tucker will be able to keep it on the same level and not let it suffer too much from sequelitis. Rush Hour 2 was bigger in basically every way, but i still thought they kept it on a similar level and i really hope Rush Hour 3 won't be some effects-laden spectacular just because everyone involved is earning $20m+. the only thing i've heard so far about it beyond the fact that Ratner, Chan and Tucker are returned is that it'll supposedly take place (in part probably) in Paris, so they'll be fishes out of water together.. well, it could work.

i hope it does.
This and the sequel to this are the only good American Jackie Chan movies out there. I laughed my ass of when i saw this film. It wasnt all that great of a movie though. Chris Tucker was pretty funny too.

Rus Hour (1998)

Perfect blend of action and comedy. Chan and Tucker are a great team. A great movie that's almost impossible not to like.
