Rush Hour 2 Movie Review
Stuntmaster Jackie Chan and loudmouthed Chris Tucker team up to take on the baddest villains in Hong Kong. They duke it out with asian gangs, deadly assassins and explosives in Rush Hour 2.
The flick starts off with Carter (Tucker) trying to live it up in Hong Kong. His vacation is a stinker cuz he doesn't speak the language and ends up sounding like a dork.
Then a bomb goes off in the American Embassy and the two cops jump on the case. They end up dealing with triad gang wars, a CIA investigation and a bunch of undercover double-crossers. There is also some secret plans to uncover, an old family mystery to solve and 100 million dollars floating around.
The action is great! Jackie never fails to amaze me with his awesome moves. Chris must've driven his mom nuts when he was a kid - he can't shut up! He's hilarious as detective Carter. His frantic antics kept me laughing for hours.
I can't decide whether the best part is when Lee plays a deadly game of hot potato with a grenade and Hu Li (Ziyi Zhang from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), or when the two cops were ditched in downtown traffic stark naked! One thing that bugged me was the swearing. There wasn't much, but most of it was unnecessary and could've been ditched.
Rush Hour 2 delivers solid action and laughs. Catch it with your friends and don't forget to watch the bloopers during the credits!
The only thing faster than Chris' mouth is email! and let us know what you thought of this flick.
