Rush Hour 2

Critics Consensus

Rush Hour 2 doesn't feel as fresh or funny as the first, and the stunts lack some of the intricacy normally seen in Chan's films.

Movie Info

A surprise box-office smash spawns this inevitably action-packed buddy comedy follow-up that reunites director Brett Ratner with stars Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker. Chan is Chief Inspector Lee of the Royal Hong Kong Police, who travels back to China with his American colleague, Los Angeles detective James Carter (Tucker). The men intend to take some vacation time but are quickly pulled into the case of two murdered U.S. customs agents, who were investigating an illegal counterfeiting scam involving Ricky Tan (John Lone), one of the most powerful Triad gangsters in Asia and an old enemy of Lee's. Lee and Carter are soon embroiled in a dangerous mystery that also involves a sexy secret-service agent (Roselyn Sanchez), a billionaire hotel owner (Alan King), a dangerous femme fatale (Zhang Ziyi) and a finale set in a lavish Las Vegas casino. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

    Didn't know I had a favourite Rush Hour movie until today. I guess I do, and it's this one. Still pretty crap though.

    More action, More comedy same old story but Chan and Tucker are great together and do well with a story that's been done so many times.

    Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan are back for more buddy-cop shenanigans in Rush Hour 2. While vacationing in Hong Kong with Insp. Lee, Det. Carter gets caught up in a Triad counterfeiting operation. Unfortunately the comedy isn't as sharp this time, as Tucker's constant jokiness and overacting becomes kind of annoying and takes away from the intensity of the action. However, Ziyi Zhang brings a lot of charisma to the film and makes for an intriguing and mysterious villain. And as always, Chan comes through with a number of dynamic and exiting fight sequences. Rush Hour 2 is a bit of a generic sequel, but it's still entertaining and fun.

    Ahh, the classic sequel-syndrome. "Rush Hour 2" was not as good as the first. It doesn't improve in the action, story, or comedy but it tries too hard to be more grand. The production values is upped a bit but the direction, editing, and camera shots are still too elementary. Still a fun time though.
