Chris Tucker: The Movie
"Rush Hour 3" is by-the-numbers summer action movie, but by the the
time you've left and revisited the other prequels, you'll soon realise
just how shallow, empty and pointless this movie really is.
Caught up in development hell, script rewrites and complex salary
negotiations, "Rush Hour 3" was always going to be a complex affair.
The word was that Chris Tucker wanted $20 million and top-billing for
It seems that his bargaining worked, because instead of a fun summer
action movie, we got Chris Tucker yelling, screaming and zinging
everyone in sight with his huge voice and overpowering everyone with
Yes, Chris Tucker in this movie was funny. But he was in almost 90% of
the movie... and it seemed it was I was watching "Chris Tucker: The
The plot of this movie is that the Ambassador of the first Rush Hour is
shot by a sniper; leaving clues that ultimately lead to Paris - where
Lee and Carter get mixed up with the Triads and Lee's brother.
The plot of this movie is very similar to that of the first "Rush Hour"
movie, indeed the Ambassador, his daughter and the whole secretive
Triad Mafia all make an appearance in both Rush Hour and Rush Hour 3,
indeed - the plot twist at the end (a plot twist that you can see
coming a mile off) is even ripped off from the first movie.
Asides from the ripped-off plot and Tucker's loud voice, Chan is left
to do very little; there is none of the trademark Chan stunts, none of
the flashy martial arts -- Chan is Tucker's "Kato", a sidekick to
Tucker's movie; Asides from a few "freerunning" parts and a few fight
sequences, Chan doesn't do very much at all! There is also a heck of a
lot of CGI in this movie, the para-sailing stunt is so obviously CGI
enhanced, and the fight on the structures of the Effiel Tower..
Maybe it was the budget, maybe the film was very rushed (it certainly
felt that way), maybe the studio didn't want high octane stunts and
wanted it more "family friendly"... maybe Chan is getting very old and
can't do the same stunts that his fans expect from every movie he does
-- whatever the reason, the fact that Chan's role is diminished and
reduced is really depressing, annoying and frustrating - given that
you've paid good movie to see a good action movie.
Sometimes I wonder if audiences will get bored of the family-safe
action movies such as Die Hard 4.0 and Rush Hour 3... I hope that
audiences will demand real action, and not this kind of template mess,
which I feel does not add value to either action, or comedy movies.
Yes, "Rush Hour 3" is funny, there are some really good sequences, but
asides from Tucker's loud, egomaniac character; there is nothing to see
in this movie, and I would advise you to watch it when it comes
available to rent.

Audreabartlett2008@gmail.com watch Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines Or How I Flew From London To Paris In 25 Hours 11 Minutes movie
Funny as heck .
I enjoyed the first 2 movies but there should be a law against making sequels when the story is the same set in a different place. They just do it over and over and it gets tiresome..
Though not very original, the movie's very amusing, and one of those to watch on tv, but maybe nt to go looking for online..
rush hour three was just laugh out loud funny and numer one was the best. .
i like batman its brill.
Not much of a movie, and not that funny either.
I'm certain Rush Hour fans will disagree, but I was sorely disappointed
with this movie. I like Jackie Chan but he was too subdued for me,
maybe because he is getting a bit older.
I don't dislike Chris Tucker, but I found his character so obnoxious,
so consistently, that I had a hard time continuing to watch the movie.
Chris Tucker of course is Detective James Carter, who is so incompetent
that he gets distracted while directing traffic in L.A. that he causes
a massive traffic jam with multiple accidents. But somehow he gets
Jackie Chan who is back as Chief Inspector Lee. This story takes them
to Paris. Much of the later action takes place within the
superstructure of the Eiffel Tower.
Max von Sydow is good as one of the bad guys, Varden Reynard.
Overall not a very good movie, not very funny, and the story doesn't
always make a lot of sense. Only for die-had fans of the Rush Hour
series of movies..
