    Oy, it's such a pleasure that you'll be begging for Rush Hour 3.
  2. A winning combination. By some bizarre quirk of star chemistry, their persona complement each other, the action scenes have comic flair and the movie is mindless fun.
  3. Coarser, more hectic, more cheaply written sequel.
  4. It's a fact that becomes riotously evident in the reel of outtakes that caps the picture and incites wonder about why no one thought to give us 90 minutes of those instead.

    Chan is still one of the most amazing -- and one of the most charming -- physical performers the movies have given us.
  6. Should please undiscriminating fans. But it in no way improves on the clichéd formula.
  7. 20
    The best parts of the movie occur during the outtakes, which are genuinely funny. The movie proper is insufferable.

This time, the action spreads to Hong Kong, and Chan is more free to use his martial arts than in the culture restraints of the first one. "2" is fun, hilarious, and profoundly entertaining. Expand

    I always enjoy Jackie Chan movies even though I watch no other "KungFu" type shows. His stunts are hilarious. I liked Chris better in this I always enjoy Jackie Chan movies even though I watch no other "KungFu" type shows. His stunts are hilarious. I liked Chris better in this one, and even noticed the guy is handsome if he just would not open his mouth. Never a dull moment in this movie. Expand

In long, it's an insipid trip through China where virtually all of the humor is derived from cheap sexism and racism (I'm really a guy that can appreciate the humor in this, but all of the jokes were so unoriginal and flat), as opposed to the fun and ridiculous situations in the first Rush Hour. Jackie Chan's acting is more tired than it has ever been before, and Chris Tucker's antics get worn thin after the first 5 minutes. To me, this ranks among the worst sequels ever made (right alongside Lawnmower Man 2 - there, I said it.) Expand
