I hate to use the phrase, "they're only in it for the money," but if any sequel ever exemplified that ethos, it's this one. Ultimately, Rush Hour 3 is a one trick pony whose day has long since passed.

Although much of Rush Hour 3 is in Paris, it's no French pastry. It's more week-old Happy Meal.

I have never thought I would ever profess to be a Jackie Chan fan. Yet, at the ripe old age of 31 having just seen Rush Hour 3, it appears that I am.

No matter how fast Chris Tucker shoots his mouth or Jackie Chan flashes his fists, they can't recapture the charm of the original Rush Hour in this third installment.

The film is formulaic and the plot is barely connected together. But it moves along quickly and there's the occasional smile.

Rush Hour 3 is a stagnate yet still commercially viable franchise. It arrives on your theater screen infested with the mold of a dated, stale rehash.

This Rush job should put the franchise down for good.

Tucker is the film's 50,000-watt mood killer, determined to fray the nerves of anyone in the theater

Yvan Attal steals what is otherwise an exhausted, workaday film.

When the outakes are the best part of a film, you know something's seriously backward. Here's Rush Hour 3 succinctly described in one word: Meh.

It is exactly what the trailer promises, providing a reasonably affordable getaway with no hassles. Fans will love it. What a rush!

Proves that $25 million does not buy a good, or even bearable performance.

Three years later in the sequel, Tucker and Chan had found their groove, even if the movie did not have as many good laughs and great stunt work. Now, though, it is an awkward Greatest Hits Reunion Show, and neither one of them seem up to the task

Some things aren't worth doing twice, let alone three times.

...the results are pretty much the same old familiar ruckus {but] the pedestrian storyline is somewhat rejuvenated because Chan and Tucker administers the playful punches.

The action is ho-hum, the attempts at comedy are inept and the whole mismatched partners mojo is all dried up in this snooze-worthy third, and hopefully last, Rush Hour flick.

A movie that not only depends on but demands you don't think in order to enjoy it.

Wild, funny and over-the-top action!

Instead of the playful banter that infested the second film, Chan's stiff delivery is punctuated by meaningless and exhaustive one-liners that pour out of Tucker like an oil tanker that just got the business-end of a torpedo.

Like the cinematic equivalent of an old, reliable piece of furniture: although it predictably brings comfort, age ultimately catches up with it, and is simply isn't as refreshing as it once was.
