Like Lethal Weapon, this franchise has become lazier and less thrilling with each instalment. Hopefully, unlike Lethal Weapon, they'll stop at Part Three.

This cloying, fractured slop of uninspired swill is content to swim among summer's worst.

It makes a case against "war" and in favor of buddies, across languages and expectations. That doesn't make Rush Hour 3 good, but it does put Carter's American excesses in a context.

I never get tired of seeing Jackie accidentally bruise whatever is left of his genitals. 'I've got one ball in a sling and another in need of Lasik,' says Jackie. 'My testicles have their own physical therapist.'

A total dud, as well as perhaps the worst sequel to appear in this up-and-down summer movie season.

Rush Hour 3 is the movie equivalent of a paint-by-numbers picture. No matter how much color you slap on top of it, you can always see the numbers guiding you underneath.

Most of the time while watching 'Rush Hour 3,' I couldn't help longing for another one of those hilarious Jackie Chan/Owen Wilson 'Shanghai' movies.

The third installment is so cartoonishly stupid it makes the original look like a classic.

There's a bizarre lack of anything to care about beyond the dynamic duo at the center of the film. Chan and Tucker can only carry an audience so far.

Boy, has this franchise ever run out of gas.

I'm not a huge fan of the first two Rush Hour films, but this third sequel is just sad considering the still-viable talent involved.

As it is now, it's just a messy plate of leftovers fancied up to include the number three in the title.

The most innovative scenes involve stunts, for which I'm sure Chan (who is always involved in action sequences and who is himself a director and fight choreographer) provided most of the inspiration.

This movie makes a fine replacement for the previous two installments.

Expect Chan and Tucker to bust it up with a steady array of bad guys, just as they've done before. And before.

The best buddy-cop comedy since Rush Hour 2.

It may have taken six years to get Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker back together but the chemistry is still there even if it looks like everyone probably signed on just to mint money.

Rush Hour 3 is an awfully spare title for such a big-money enterprise, but an appropriate subtitle like Auto Pilot or Once More For The Cash would have given the game away.

There's no doubt that Rush Hour 3 is anything but a mess. And yet there were moments when I found myself laughing giddily at the inanity of it all, and other moments when the picture was so beautiful to look at that I almost forgot its faults.

You've got to hand it to Brett Ratner. He knows how to make a formula comedy breeze by in an efficient 90 minutes.
