TL;DR (Too, Long; Didn't Read) Version
Rush Hour was an iconic movie that paired two seemingly different actors together to create cinema gold back in the late 90s. 9 years later, the third movie in the franchise is a sequel that no one asked for. Purely money grabs from the studios that ultimately tarnish the story of the original.
- There are a few lines in the movie that are quite funny.
- The jokes from Chris Tucker falls flat and we are left with his insistent yelling and blabbering.
- The plot is widely unbelievable and unrealistic.
- Jackie Chan's character, Lee, is morphed into a sex-obsessed persona that ruins his fearless justice innocence of the original.
- The magic that was captured from the duo in the original is lost in this movie.
- The movie drags and rather than creating something new, they depend on the magic of the original to push the movie forward.
Final Verdict: Avoid this movie if you are a fan of the original.
