Trivia

When Max and Stan are fishing on the boat, Max catches a shark, once Stan touches it and finds out it is still alive, he shoots it several times while telling it the Miranda rights. The bullets should have gone through it and penetrated the hull. In the next shot, they are pulling into the dock with seemingly no issues with the bullet penetrations. See more »

Goofs

When Stan is rushing past the ship's lobby to accost the stranger in the hazmat suit, he runs over two black electrical cables draped across the floor. Known as "stingers", these cables likely go to one or more lights that were hastily added to the set in order to light this quick shot. See more »

Quotes

Henri Mooré: Mr. Burdett. It is a pleasure to meet you, sir.
Max Burdett: Oh, you're American. Hmm. Henri Mooré?
Henri Mooré: Ah, my name is Henry Moore. I place the thing on the 'e'. I felt it more appropriate to my surroundings.

Well acted entertaining thriller without style
16 January 2005 | by falcon135See all my reviews

This is a somewhat entertaining cat and mouse thriller with Brosnan, Hayek and Harrelson at the top of their game. The film starts out promisingly enough with a diamond heist which is more slapstick than suspenseful.

After the heist Harrelson follows the pair to an island where he believes they plan another big job. As the two male characters get more closely acquainted throughout the film we start to wonder who's tricking who.

Brosnan displays rare emotion in this film. Harrelson escapes his Cheers role by excellently portraying the many sides of what would have been a simple character.Hayek doesn't miss a chance to show off her body, and Don Cheadle's villain was superb. The only problem with that character was that we didn't see enough of him.

The film has some nice scenery and entertaining scenes, particularly the shark capture.Rush hour director Ratner has made a great film, which only really lacks style and good pacing. this film would have been better handled in the reins of, say, Steven Soderbergh.

But nonetheless, a very funny enjoyable film which will please fans of the cast and crew, as well as the movie-going public. It's not up to the standard of Oceans's eleven yet it beats the likes of Ocean's 12. Any fan of the comedy/thriller genre should go see this film, but I will be looking more forward to Rush Hour 3.
