RUSH HOUR 2 MOVIE
New Line's Infinifilm series has set a high bar for DVD supplements, but where previous editions have been dedicated to director's visions, Rush Hour 2 is about the stars. This peek beyond the movie is most interested in looking at the performers. Watch Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in "Evolution of a Scene" as they rework three separate moments in rehearsal, and get an intimate glimpse of Chan's working methods in "Kung Fu Choreography." "Culture Clash" and "Language Barrier" view the unique challenges of an international production (would you believe Chris Tucker's karaoke vamp actually offended Hong Kong locals?). There's also audio commentary (director Brett Ratner and screenwriter Jeff Nathanson) and a host of other short featurettes, but, as any Chan fan will tell you, the most entertaining goodies are in the five minutes of additional outtakes in the Deleted Scenes gallery. --Sean Axmaker

of action,but it's even funnier than the first.there's some really good
fight scenes,and Jackie Chan's moves are even more outrageous this time
around.the banter between Chan and Tucker is much funnier and more
natural.once again,although there is some violence it's not excessive
or gratuitous.i think there is also less coarse language than the
first,and like the first,there is no nudity,but there is a bit of
suggestiveness.overall,i though this movie was a great ride from start
to finish.it's even faster paced than the original,and Tucker and Chan
have even better general and comedic chemistry.for me,Rush Hour 2 is a
Globalism hasn't had its great comedy yet. And "Rush Hour 2" isn't likely to get the kids rioting in the streets of Genoa. Let some other cross- racial, cross-cultural, cross-commercial flick step up to the plate. The movie,
lightly directed by "Rush Hour" visionary Brett Ratner, simply takes the first movie's shtick global, moving from Los Angeles to Hong Kong and still having fun with the idea that to the rest of the world, Chris Tucker epitomizes America.
Tucker and Jackie Chan reprise their previous relationship and give it a lovey emotional center -- black men are from Mars; Chinese dudes are from Venus. After Chan thinks Tucker has died in an explosion at his Hong Kong precinct, P. Diddy's life-after-death tribute "I'll Be Missing You" comes on, reducing him to mush. And as long as it's entangled in multi-culti absurdity, "Rush Hour 2" is actually a better time than the first one: Tucker ordering the in-flight kosher meal; Chan, after miles of Tucker's ethnic verbal abuse, finally retaliating; the two bugging out together to "California Girls" on the streets of Hong Kong.
Because "RH2's" grasp on detectives is tenuous at best, Chan and Tucker play themselves playing cops. It's a fact that becomes riotously evident in the reel of outtakes that caps the picture and incites wonder about why no one thought to give us 90 minutes of those in-
stead. Chan and Tucker -- their characters are Lee and Carter, though it hardly matters -- are solving a corruption case involving -- well, who cares what the case is about?Read more ›
The plot of this one is pretty predictable but the film never manages to be boring. Essentially, Tucker and Chan think their stay in Hong Kong will be a rural vacation turns out a bomb which detonates at the American Embassy has killed two American agents. Chan makes a reluctant Tucker investigate with him. From here this becomes a funny, worthwhile buddy picture.
Though the jokes seemed to be a bit over-the-top in contrast to the origianl they still made you laugh. The jokes were for the most part racist, if that bothers you then this one might not be a good pick for you.
Rush Hour 2 has stunning locations from Hong Kong to L.A. to Las Vegas. A nice cast includes Roselyn Sanchez, John Lone, Zhang Ziyi (from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and Harris Yulin. It's more than inevitable from the ending that there'll be a Rush Hour 3 and who could possibly not want there to be one.
Rush Hour 2 is rated PG-13 for Action, Violence, Language and Some Sexual Material. The violence includes mainly martial art fights, some bloodless gunplay(less that in the original) and at certain points excessive language, some of which is strong for the "PG-13" rating.
For the most part this is one great buddy comedy, I luckily had the privilege of viewing in theatres and was glad I did for it was well worth it. I now own it on DVD and am pleased to have it part of my collection. Buy it or atleast rent it.
I highly recommend this one. Granted yes, you have to at least see the first one otherwise it'll seem kind of like "huh?" Trust me, I saw this in the theatres and the people sitting behind me didn't get it at all because they hadn't seen the first. There's just a few really important references from RUSH HOUR but they're very important to RUSH HOUR 2's story and plot.
Again, check out this one and if you haven't seen RUSH HOUR< MAKE SURE YOU WATCH THAT FIRST! If you're looking for other great Jackie Chan movies, check out SUPERCOP (w/ Michelle Yeoh from Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon) and WHO AM I? And for all you Chris Tucker fans, check out FRIDAY and FIFTH ELEMENT. There's a great start for anyone who's sleep on either of these two so enjoy!

Was looking at stores for this movie and found it here, ordered it right away came in fast and everything was all good.Published on May 20 2013 by jw
The orginal Rush Hour has some freshness, chemistry, and vitality to it, whereas RH-2 comes off as contrived and repetitious. Only for fanatics of Tucker or Chan.Published on Nov. 4 2007 by B. Keith
I thought that the movie was good, but it suffers from Jackie trying to act like Tucker did in the first one... Read morePublished on Feb. 27 2005 by P. J Parrish
