5.0 out of 5 stars Just As Good As The First, If Not Better, August 5, 2001
Summed up, I'd say Rush Hour 2 is just as good, if not better, than the original Rush Hour. The movie, like most Jackie Chan flicks, contains the same GREAT ACTION, GREAT STUNTS and GREAT LAUGHS that you've come to expect from Jackie flicks. This one does not disappoint.
Much like the original Rush Hour, Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan continue that awesome chemistry they have that made the original such a HUGE hit. This time though the tables are slightly reversed as the flick picks up in Hong Kong (right where the original ended when they took their vacation) with Tucker being the fish out of water doing cultural and language faux paux in Hong Kong. The movie actually continues some of the storyline threads of the original referring back to Jackie's (Inspector Lee's) deceased father. The basic premise of the storyline has Jackie and Tucker (along with the U.S. Secret Service) tracking down a counterfeit dollar bill ring throughout Hong Kong and the U.S. all the way to Vegas (where else). Tons of laughs and loads of action are left in the wake of their trail.
Highlights: Loads of laughs as Chris Tucker tries to speak Chinese and sing karaoke. Tons of AWESOME fight scenes (in particular the massage parlor scene). Tons of HILARIOUS (albeit perhaps politically incorrect) repartee with Chris Tucker. Our heroes streaking through the streets of Hong Kong. Tons of beautiful women.
Things to Beware of: Chris Tucker's mouth. While his tirades are often hilarious, some (like Roger Ebert) may find some the movies dialogue inappropriate (racist).
The End of Movie Bloopers: Of course being a Jackie Chan film, one of the distinct highlights of his movies are the end of movie bloopers. There are several goods ones in here, particularly a cell phone call and the big hint at the next Rush Hour flick (as was set-up in the closing scene of the movie).
Overall, it you are into Jackie Chan or Chris Tucker or Action Comedies or the first Rush Hour, you KNOW you'll be seeing this one. You won't be disappointed.
Highly Recommended.
