Storyline

Almost three years after their last adventure in Rush Hour 2 (2001), Carter is now working as a Los Angeles traffic officer, while his friend and ace Hong Kong Police inspector, Lee, escorts the Chinese Ambassador, Han, to the World Criminal Court, to disclose crucial information about the Triads. However, after a botched assassination attempt, the mismatched duo will find themselves in picturesque Paris, struggling to retrieve a precious list of names, as the murderous crime syndicate's henchmen try their best to stop them. Once more, Lee and Carter must fight their way through dangerous gangsters; however, this time, the past has come back to haunt Lee. Will the boys get the job done once and for all?

Trivia

Roman Polanski was a fan of the first two Rush Hour movies. When it was learned that this movie was set in Paris, he asked director Brett Ratner and the producers whether they could give him a small role in which to appear. They happily complied with his wish. See more »

Goofs

When Carter and Lee have their first gun fight together, Carter runs out of bullets. When Lee slides across the floor to 'load' him, a bullet is already present and visible, ready to shoot. He never cocked the gun, or had time to, in order to load and shoot. See more »

Quotes

Detective James Carter: Lee, I'm alive. My whole life flashed in front of me. In three years I'll be married to a Chinese woman. We had three kids, look just like you, only a little darker.

Don't Know Why people bash this
10 August 2007 | by squallz10See all my reviews

I thought this movie was actually good. It was everything I expected it to be,funny and full of intense action. I do not understand why people are hating on this wonderful film, but the jokes I guess could be said that they have been done before. Either way the whole audience was laughing in the theater I went too. It deserves be watched.

Jackie Chan's fights were cool too. His fights fall short compared to other the movies he has done, but for a movie like this they are considerably good. I thought the story was pretty basic though, but I didn't go in expecting an epic movie like Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, etc. I went to laugh and i did. Chris tucker just kinda does the same thing like the movie. But isn't that why we love Rush Hour?
