  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 movie seems to proceed from somebody's notion that it would be hilarious to see a black guy and a Chinese guy working together.
  6. At regular intervals the film stops short for similiarly nifty Chan choreography, letting the star flip, swivel, scamper up walls and hurl large objects with his feet.

    It's not much fun to watch.

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

    A repeatedly hilarious buddy-cop film with as many gut-busting one liners from Chris Tucker as there are jaw-dropping stunts from Jackie Chan.

It's entertaining enough and has enough visually to make it enjoyable, and while there are better films out there like it I still enjoy watching it, and seeing what those two get up too. I'm now looking forward to watching the new two and a potential fourth in the future Overall Chan & Tucker fans will probably enjoy this the most! 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.
