Storyline

After an attempted assassination on Ambassador Han, Inspector Lee and Detective Carter are back in action as they head to Paris to protect a French woman with knowledge of the Triads' secret leaders. Lee also holds secret meetings with a United Nations authority, but his personal struggles with a Chinese criminal mastermind named Kenji, which reveals that it's Lee's long-lost...brother. But their race will take them across the city, from the depths of the Paris underground to the breathtaking heights of the Eiffel Tower, as they fight to outrun the world's most deadly criminals and save the day.

Trivia

Roman Polanski (as the Paris commissioner) was uncredited in the film's cast because of the continuing controversy of his in absentia conviction for child molestation. He has been listed on mainland European copies of the movie, but nothing in America, Canada or England. See more »

Goofs

When Carter is sitting at the café (probably Café de la Paix) in front of the Opera House he sees the name Geneviève advertised on top of Théâtre des Champs-Elysées. The theater is on Avenue Montaigne in the 8th arrondissement, a little less than 2 miles away. See more »

No irony intended in rating this a 3
12 April 2008 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

I never thought it would be so painful to watch a franchise being milked.

Apparently Chris Tucker has only had to make three movies in the past 9 years, and this is the third one. No prizes for guessing the other two.

It's not that Rush Hour 3 is a particularly bad movie, but it's just a tired re-working of themes already heavily mined in the first two instalments.

The only marginal difference here is that whereas in Episode 1 and 2 the "player-outside-his-turf" mantle was worn alternately by Lee (Jackie Chan) and Carter (Chris Tucker) respectively, here, they're both out of their comfort zone viz. Europe, and more specifically, Paris This plot point doesn't actually change the formula's outcome that much, because every other element is essentially unchanged.

The coolest stuff in the movie is already showcased in the trailer, so if you're pressed for time, just watch that.

PS: Roman Polanski did look like he was having fun though...so much fun, in fact, that he didn't bother to have his name added to the credits. Smart man.
