Did You Know?


At one point, the producers of the "Rush Hour" trilogy (1998-2007) considered shooting a third and fourth installment, back-to-back. See more »


In the beginning of the movie, Carter (as a uniformed police officer) is seen directing traffic flow in Downtown Los Angeles just before the ensuing accidents he causes. In the City of Los Angeles, however, the police officers of the Los Angeles Police Department do not direct traffic. Instead, that job is assigned to traffic officers (noted by their brown-colored shirts, yellow safety vests, and white caps) of the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT), not the LAPD.

More violent slapstick fun with Chris and Jackie
12 August 2007 | by (Vulcan) – See all my reviews

Director Brett Ratner returns to his element, offering a third fun, funny, and violent slapstick installment in the Rush Hour series.Rush Hour 3 sees Inspector Lee and Detective Carter back together again, trying to save the lives of a Chinese ambassador who may be on the brink of cracking open a massive organized crime syndicate called the Triads, the ambassador's daughter, and a woman with a very dangerous secret. The biggest problem, however, is the return of somebody from Lee's past with the potential to derail the otherwise stalwart Inspector. Most of this takes place in Paris, providing a different setting and a few opportunities to exploit cultural stereotypes that are new to the series.

The film is jam-packed with the wild, mildly provocative humor the series is known for, and the silly but entertaining martial-arts slapstick that is Mr. Chan's trademark. Chris Tucker gives his best performance in the series, delivering a lot of comic punch and playing a nice complement to Chan's sombre and serious Inspector Lee.

Rush Hour 3 delivers exactly what fans of the series look for - a simple linear action-thriller liberally decorated with a lot of cleverly written comedy and the amazing physical performance of Jackie Chan. It is better than many of Ratner's recent efforts, and a worthy entry in one of the very few comedy series I have enjoyed.
