Rush hour 2 is the best film of the series hands down. Like you put Chris Tucker, and Jackie Chan together you have gold. I seen this movie probably 10,000 times since the movie came out no joke.

This was better than the first, even though the first was good too. Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan once again provided laughs and serious acting throughout the entire film. I haven't seen Rush Hour 3 yet but I did seen a clip from it. If you haven't seen the Rush Hour movies, then you owe them to yourself to sit down, have a bowl of popcorn and laugh your **** off as they have some wild adventures chasing bad guys.

Another action comedy from Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker. Don't look for good acting or a story that makes sense here. Even Zhang Ziyi delivered one of her worst performances. Enjoyable for what it is.

I thought this was a very good installment in the Rush Hour franchise. The fight scenes are well done and the jokes are funny. I would recommend this to fans of buddy cop movies as well as fans of the first film.

Detective James Carter is on vacation in Hong Kong, but Inspector Lee is too busy doing police work. After an explosion at the American Embassy, Lee attempts to track down the man who may be responsible, Ricky Tan, a Triad gang leader and the former partner of Lee's father, who was also a cop. Obviously, Carter doesn't appreciate being dragged along like that, but what choice does he have? Lee discovers a power struggle among the Triads between Tan and Hu Li. They later find out it has something to do with the death of Lee's father, and a counterfeiting scheme. Lee and Carter go back to Cali, and later Las Vegas, where they discover that everything that's happened goes way beyond an explosion at the Embassy.
