Rush Hour is an enjoyable buddy cop action film that spawned two other popular sequels due to the overload of fame the first had in 1998. And it deserves it, Chan and Tucker work well together, but some jokes fall flat and Tucker can be annoying. Like, really.
An arrogant LA cop, James Carter, teams up with a Hong Kong cop, Lee, to save the kidnapping and possible murder of a Chinese consul's young daughter. Along with a lot of silly scenes that mostly fall flat, there's a bunch of great action scenes with Chan that made the movie what it was for me.
Rush Hour's not perfect, but it's fun. Like I said, Chan and Tucker have chemistry and it's fun to see them do stuff together, but most jokes and silly stuff they do fall flat and Tucker obviously is written to be hilarious when at times he's just plain annoying. It's fun, though, and I'd suggest you check it out (the sequels, eh).
