Rush Hour 3 [Blu-ray]

This seemed like a somewhat forced attempt to create a trilogy for a series that really did not need one. It, of course, brings back Jackie Chan, Chris Tucker and director Brett Ratner for the third installment of the buddy cop franchise. The main focus is still the Lee/Carter relationship and elevating them from friend status to that of family. Overall though the characters are what they are, and there is really no more room to develop them.

This time the bulk of the story involves the characters in France, trying to track down the list of the leaders of the Triad. The scene stealer of the movie is anti-American sentiments from a cab driver (Yvan Attal) who eventually becomes an important and funny ally. Carter gets the girl in this movie, played by the gorgeous (Noemie Lenoird) who is more important than she initially seems. There are also supporting roles by Max Von Sydow and another great martial arts movie alum Hiroyuki Sanada, whom Ratner had to basically beg to return to the genere. There are also tie backs to the first movie involving counsel Han, now Ambassador Han and his daughter.

Ultimately the Rush hour movies are what they are. While I do not necessarily think this movie had to be made, chances are if you loved or enjoyed the first two, you will probably like this one too, although maybe not as much. If you were lukewarm to the first two, then you may not like this one all that much. For extras, you get a lot. There is a commentary track on the movie by Ratner and the screen writer, trailers for the movie, and a second disc filled with a couple hours worth of making of and behind the scenes features and a production diary, which basically followed from the first day of shooting to the last. It was interesting hearing Ratner describe doing the things in this one that he wanted to have in the others, like Chris Tucker getting beat up by a bunch of kids in a Karate Studio, a "Reverse Game of Death" type fight scene with a Chinese giant etc. If you like going through bonus material you will really like all you get here.

I cannot say the movie will appeal to everyone, but if you have enjoyed the first two, I would say it is worth checking out.

When you own Rush Hour and Rush Hour 2, of course you want to round it out with the third installment. The writing, acting, and production is just as great as the originals. I love Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan separately, but together they are great.

It's entertaining, funny, and has Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in it. What could possibly go wrong? The film industry would have continued without the movie ever being released, but it is fun to watch and has a decent plot.
