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?Written by
The production crew agreed upon a twenty dollar fine anytime anyone's cell phone rang during shooting. The money would be donated to the homeless charity Chrysalis. By late February, it had over $600. See more »

I admit it that it is funny and some jokes really make me laugh but now, we are focusing on the story plot which is straight-forward and its action scenes are not very impressive for a Jackie Chan movie. If you had watched Rush hour 1 and 2. You will realise that this movie is pretty much similar to the two movies. The director is the director of the big-action X-men 3. The jokes are the best in the movie, nothing else. With all the jokes, this seems to be more of a comedy more than a action movie. Even when they are fighting, they do not take things seriously. The only change is the event takes place in Paris. Other than that, this movie seems to be recycled.
The story is dead simple. Two buddies, Lee (Jackie Chan) and James (Chris tucker) go to Paris to find for more clues about the Chinese Triad crew. The story is something like that. And with jokes added.
Nothing is impressive. The jokes, some of them are the same dirty jokes and fighting scenes, Jackie Chan can do better than that. Though, it is straight-forward and has recycled jokes, I still had fun watching it. If only it had great action.
If you want to watch a Jackie Chan movie, this is harmless for you. It may be fun but you can't expect great action from this. The fight scenes are simple and last for around 5 minutes. It is not very worth to watch it in Cinema unless you have a lot of money to spare. It may be loud at some time but it is just like a comedy with some goofing-action. Unless you like Jackie Chan, you can wait for the DVD.
