Overview

New Line's Platinum Series of DVDs has put out an interactive disc with features as fun as the film itself. While the stars of Rush Hour are Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker, the star of this DVD is the film's director Brett Ratner. Ratner's audio commentary is a lightning-fast rant of asides that fills the viewer in on every production detail as it happens. Other Brett Ratner highlights include his NYU student film Whatever Happened to Mason Reese? (with or without director commentary) as well as two Ratner rap music videos (also with or without commentary). Another treat is seven short deleted scenes, as well as an isolated score track with commentary from composer Lalo Schifrin. It's interesting, but not as chaotic as the on-the-set home movies of the cast and crew, all part of an awesome behind-the-scenes featurette. Finally, for those who still need more, PC-friendly software for DVD-ROM users lets viewers access screen savers, interactive games, the entire screenplay and more.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Adam Goldberg
Just when it seemed that buddy movies peaked with the Lethal Weapon franchise, Rush Hour high-kicked its way to box-office success. Due to its surprisingly new take on the action-comedy genre, the film pairs up the polar opposite Jackie Chan with motor-mouth Chris Tucker of Friday. The talkaholic Tucker proves to be the perfect complement to Chan's choreographed kicks and backflips. While the movie is constructed from typical elements, the two stars make for an entertaining and exciting team. Martial arts expert Chan has become famous for being his own stunt man and literally breaking every bone in his body. Rush Hour not only shows his ability to throw punches and scale walls, but there are several physical routines that rival the work of Charlie Chaplin. In one scene, Chan must ward off goons as he protects wobbling vases -- and does so with the grace of Buster Keaton and the moves of Chuck Norris. Directed by Brett Ratner, who proved that he can direct both Tucker and high-octane action segments in Money Talks, the film comes to life due to the onscreen chemistry between Chan and Tucker. While some may be offended by the Asian stereotypes and racial jokes, one can't deny that Rush Hour proves that a little humor and creativity can fuse new life into an ailing genre.

    Two More and Still the Best!

    Even with the creation of Rush Hour II and III, the first remains the most clever, innovative, humerous, and with a plot and action scenes comparable to any mystery or thriller.

    so funny i had to shed tears

    Chris Tucker is a funny dude on his own, so when he was partnered with Jackie Chan, that made it one hell of a comedy film.

    Rush Hour ANY ONE

    Rush Hour was a high entertaining movie. The movie brings together two of the bests actors of today. The movie brings Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker to L.A. to find a missing girl. Even the plot of the movie was outstanding. This movie is still interesting, and entertaining everytime I watch it.

    Rush Hour is a cool movie

    Rush Hour is the best movie! The girl who played Soo Yung (Julia Hsu) goes to my school, but people don't hound her. People say ''That's the girl from 'Rush Hour''' She's really nice and friendly.
