Overview

A surprise box-office smash spawns this inevitably action-packed buddy comedy follow-up that reunites director Brett Ratner with stars Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker. Chan is Chief Inspector Lee of the Royal Hong Kong Police, who travels back to China with his American colleague, Los Angeles detective James Carter (Tucker). The men intend to take some vacation time but are quickly pulled into the case of two murdered U.S. customs agents, who were investigating an illegal counterfeiting scam involving Ricky Tan (John Lone), one of the most powerful Triad gangsters in Asia and an old enemy of Lee's. Lee and Carter are soon embroiled in a dangerous mystery that also involves a sexy secret-service agent (Roselyn Sanchez), a billionaire hotel owner (Alan King), a dangerous femme fatale (Zhang Ziyi) and a finale set in a lavish Las Vegas casino.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
This garishly opulent sequel is just as raucously entertaining as its predecessor, the surprise hit of 1998 and the first American-made success for international superstar Jackie Chan. This time around, it’s LAPD detective James Carter Chris Tucker reprising his role from the original who’s the fish out of water. While visiting Hong Kong and his friend Inspector Lee Chan, Carter becomes embroiled in a case with international ramifications: A prominent Chinese gangster John Lone is joining forces with an American tycoon Alan King to flood the United States with counterfeit money. Everything that made the original Rush Hour so enjoyable -- the cross-cultural confusion and good-natured banter between Chan and Tucker, their impromptu musical performances, and Jackie’s daredevil stunt work -- is replicated with slavish adherence to formula by returning director Brett Ratner. Tucker and Chan are among the oddest of odd couples in "buddy" movie history, and Ratner builds everything around their explosive chemistry. Funny, fast moving, and action packed, Rush Hour 2 is practically a carbon copy of the first film, which is exactly what its fans want to see. The DVD's special features include commentary by Ratner and writer Jeff Nathanson, deleted scenes, outtakes, a featurette on Ratner, his short film Lady Luck, and much more. There is also a series of "Beyond the Movie" interviews in which Chan discusses East-West culture clashes, his introduction to Hong Kong, dealing with the language barrier, and choreographing his fight sequences.
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers
Winds up being faster and funnier than the first time. Chan's acrobatic high jinks play strikingly off of Tucker's wiseass humor.

    Very Good!

    Is a great comedy. The style of Jackie Chan and the presentation of Roselyn Sanchez are facts that makes me feel very well watching this movie. It is very funny and a lot of action, too.

    Feel the Rush...

    A sequel that exceeds its predecessor. That in itself is an anomaly these days, but Rush Hour 2 packs enough wallop for both movies. How about some of the best lines in an action comedy in recent years? From one liners to the chemistry that has evolved between Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker, this movie will make you pause the scenes until you finish laughing. Hit play again and you'll be slapped with more humor. Carter runs through downtown Hong Kong, where no one knows what he is saying, yelling, ''Get outta the way! L.A.P.D!'' There's a moment in Hong Kong where Carter meets up with a chicken vendor and the laughs keep coming. Rush Hour 2 opts for a more sexy approach with the Chinese massage parlor scene, and the 2 main female characters who are sure to boggle the eyes of the male population. As for action, there's plenty of it to support the clever dialogue. The movie is so realistic and unrealistic at the same time, you'll be bringing the first movie back out and panting for Rush Hour 3. I can't leave out the fact that a story goes with this and it's told quite well, and for what this movie is, it doesn't burden the high-jinks, but supports it. Simply put, Inspector Lee has an old vendetta with the man who killed his father and Carter is pulled along from Hong Kong to L.A. A few plates need to be found from a counterfeit ring using them to make a ''Superbill,'' which is identical to a real bill. Not quite an original story, right? Well, it's all in the way you tell it and Rush Hour 2 pulls off a good time and that's what we wanted to see. Robert Eldridge is the author of: ''Amber Spirit: Poems & Stories'' (Hats Off Books, 2001) and the dark poetic book, ''Offbeat'' (Writers Club Press, 2002.)

    Rush Hour 2

    Rush Hour2 is a great movie that evryone should see. The movie is full of action, and you never stop laughing. Jackie Chan provides the great fighting scenes, with a little of Chris Tuckerthrowing in a few hits. Chris Tucker had coverd the comedic scenes. I don't think that there is any movie that is better. This is one I will never forget, and can't wait for the next one. I hope that there alot more to come from the great duo of Chris Tucker and Jakie Chan.

    A amazing combination

    If you thought RH 1 was an incredible comedy then you should watch RH 2. The chemistry between Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker is amazing and works every time. A funny and enjoyable film, a classic.

    Humor Misses the Mark

    The plot here is uncreative and tedious. I find Chris Tucker particularly grating. His voice itself is jarring, though I suppose that can't be helped. Moreover, it appears that his character is supposed to typify an attitude of USA-centrism. He needs to spend less time gawking at the foreign culture and making unhumorous cracks and more time adding something to the movie. I found the movie as a whole to be less than amusing.
