Rush Hour 3 reminds us that Tucker is an utterly strange entertainment phenomenon: He exists only in the world of these movies.
63
By no means is it a great movie, but it is great slapstick fun, one of summer's guilty pleasures.
58
It's a jerry-built kick-ass insult machine assembled entirely out of secondhand parts.

Once you realize it's only going to be so good, you settle back and enjoy that modest degree of goodness, which is at least not badness, and besides, if you're watching Rush Hour 3, you obviously didn't have anything better to do, anyway.
50
It works primarily because of the chemistry between Chan and Tucker, which is at its combustible best this time out.
50
Feels as desperate and static as being trapped in a traffic jam.

Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker have been through a lot together. To be exact, "Rush Hour" "Rush Hour 2" and now Rush Hour 3. Are they tired? Perhaps not, but their antics and action sequences certainly are.
50
This may be the best-looking film in the series; certainly, the Paris setting, with a climactic battle among the girders of the Eiffel Tower, keeps the visuals interesting. Better you buy a postcard.

The Hollywood Reporter
In its third time out of the gate, Rush Hour 3, reuniting Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan, hits the ground stalling.
50
Strangest of all, Roman Polanski shows up to torture our heroes with a Paris phone book, then subject them to a full-cavity search. A gratuitous nod to "Chinatown"? Who knows? Who cares?

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
It's the same package with new wrapping.
