Chan...can make something out of nothing, while Ratner's chief skills seem to be talking himself into the director's chair and hiring the right people. [Blu-ray]

Much of the best dialogue, you suspect, was improvised by Tucker and Chan, who seem truly taken with each other and make a delightful, ordinary-extraordinary pair.

The great Jackie Chan deserves an A list director in a Hollywood film while he's still young enough to pull off his awe inspiring stunts.

By themselves, Chan and Tucker do not provide anything inspiring or refreshing, but when they are combined, they form a surprisingly entertaining comedic duo.

I didn't have very high expectations for this film, and it was much better than I thought it was going to be.

A perfect popcorn film -- lightweight, low in nutrients but remarkably satisfying nonetheless.

Rush Hour is a righteous title for an action comedy, and that's only the beginning.

Eventually, of course, Lee and Carter must learn to work together, respecting one other’s methods and abilities, blah blah blah.

A vindication of what some of us have always known: that Jackie is a screen legend.

Rush Hour effectively teams Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in a formulaic but funny action comedy that should please fans of both stars.

Rush Hour, starring Chan and Chris Tucker as a couple of mismatched cops on the trail of a kidnapper, is more of an American film. Although it features plenty of Chan's mind-boggling physical agility, it really showcases the comic abilities of both men.

What's surprising is that though this should be crap, and perhaps it is, it doesn't come off that way. The reason is because of Chan and Tucker.

The movie is no more than a well-produced confection designed for quick payoff in the big cities, but it's pretty consistently funny.
