  1. Rush Hour effectively teams Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in a formulaic but funny action comedy that should please fans of both stars.
  2. A sturdily entertaining vehicle, easily the little guy's best American-made film.
  3. It's the kind of copycat movie that becomes original through its cast and treatment.

    There's a familiar feeling to the movie even beyond its twinkle-eyed martial arts melees.

    The stunts are great but they make sense and don't blow the sense of reality of the whole movie.

    The movie seems to proceed from somebody's notion that it would be hilarious to see a black guy and a Chinese guy working together.

    Great comedy and action movie. Jackie Chan showed his martial art stunts, although Chris Tucker was quite funny man.

The combination of Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan just made the movie exciting since they brought their own personalities into the movie. I was never a fan of Jackie Chan before or after Rush Hour.

Which is weird considering Jackie Chan didn't even get it. The plotline is silly yet very fun, the combination of Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker works really well. The film can be rather funny at times and is very light-hearted while mixing the serious story in at the same time. Everyone owes it to themselves to watch this film (and sequels). Grab some snacks and watch a very enjoyable film. Expand

What disappointed me was that it didn't demonstrate Chan's full range of skills. Expand

    Just your average action movie with its average violence. The acting is pointless but Chris Tucker couldn't be more annoying. worthless mindless crap.
