Tuckers finest hour, Jackie can do so much more.
on September 5, 1999
The buddy movie has been done a hundred times and although Lethal Weapon still holds the crown its time has passed. As Chris Tucker says, he and Jackie are the team of the nineties. The chemistry between Tucker and Chan is great. Tucker excels as 'the new Eddie Murphy' and Chan, well Jackie Chan is just one of a kind. Although it is no match for his Honk Kong movies (Police Story 1&2, Project A, Drunken Master 2, Wheels on Meals etc.) Rush Hour is the best Hollywood flick JC has made. And it is a breath of fresh air following the appalling Rumble In The Bronx. If only Hollywood would realise how much talent he has and let him make a proper Jackie Chan movie with their money. I can't wait for the sequel. Also watch out for the behind the scenes footage of Jackie choreographing a fight scene, it's better than the film itself.
