It's not as funny as the original, not as fresh or urgent.
August 3, 2001
How can a movie allow [Tucker] to be so obnoxious and make no acknowledgment that his behavior is aberrant?

August 3, 2001
Perfunctory, sour, overly racist.

If Chris Tucker ever comes to my house for dinner, he'd better bring some aspirin.

August 2, 2001
[Chan's] action choreography is toned down and lacks its usual comic flair.

Tucker and Chan work the material as best they can (under the circumstances of no story) but it's a laborious feat.

It looks ... like it was thrown together in a couple of months.

August 3, 2001
The final tally: four stars for Jackie Chan, no stars for director Brett Ratner, and minus two stars for Chris Tucker, giving the film a total of two.
August 3, 2001
Chan has surprisingly little to do -- fewer action sequences than usual and even less dialogue to wrestle with.
July 31, 2001
Chan and Tucker's relationship is an unfortunate chemistry based on racial insults.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
August 1, 2001
...The banter between Chan and Tucker hasn't an ounce of spirit and even the action scenes feel stale and lethargic.

Rush Hour 2 is just par for the course in this year of familiarity and mediocrity.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 3, 2001
The outtakes that run over the end credits [are] the only spontaneous thing about the movie.

August 1, 2001
Slack, unfunny bit of new-century vaudeville.
August 2, 2001
Even the addition of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon's spunky Zhang Ziyi to the cast can't get Rush Hour 2 out of the sequelitis quagmire.
