Variety
Superior sequel, which is the very model of the limber, transnational Hollywood action comedy.

New York Daily News
The co-stars genuinely like each other, and their pleasure is infectious.

Los Angeles Times
Feels out of shape and self-satisfied, as if it knew it didn't have to try very hard.

Washington Post
Nothing more or less than a moneymaking encore. The story is functional. The performers assume their marks with almost flippant ease.

Chicago Reader
This action comedy transforms LAPD detective Chris Tucker from an intolerably annoying egotist into a practically lovable intolerably annoying egotist.

Chan is still one of the most amazing -- and one of the most charming -- physical performers the movies have given us.

Wall Street Journal
The movie is counterfeit too, a coarse imitation of a stylish star vehicle for stars who deserve the real thing.

Should please undiscriminating fans. But it in no way improves on the clichéd formula.

Charlotte Observer
Looks as if it were thrown together as carelessly as slum housing.

New York Post
The contrast between Chan's charm and physical prowess and Tucker's lack of same is even more dramatic in this tiresome, leaden sequel.
