    Well, ouch. Practically every moment in Rush Hour where Chris Tucker is on screen is a painful one. He's desperately trying to do Beverly Hills Cop, but only comes off as an unfunny parody of Eddie Murphy, an obnoxious cartoon character that is never credible as a police detective. Creepbag Brett Ratner, for all his vocal devotion to kung fu cinema, can't get rid of Americanisms like fast cut action (when you have a talent like Jackie Chan, you don't cut out after two moves) and a boring shoot-out at the end. An obvious, predictable, cliché-laden plot is decorated with overt racism, not just from the script, which has ugly American Tucker ridicule everything Chinese (never mind his consistent sexual harassment of one of the only engaging American characters in the film), but from the direction as well, or am I to take the "oriental score cues" as anything but troubling? There isn't even a truly impressive action set-piece to seek my teeth into. Everything Jackie does, I've seen before and done better. About as good as it gets is when he's trying to protect art. About as BAD as it gets is when they use his "fish out water" status to make N-word jokes. I just can't with this one. 4 years 10 months ago

    After almost 18 years....finally saw the movie and was pleasantly surprised. It's a very silly, predictable but also fun buddy movie. 7 years 11 months ago
