Summary: 'Rush Hour 3' is one of those frustrating high-def titles to review, because the movie is as bad as the disc is great. This is just a stupid and lazy sequel that has no reason to exist other than the fact that the filmmakers and studio all needed a hit to fatten their bank accounts.
Excerpt: It�s difficult to know where to start, reviewing Rush Hour 3. Anything I say is going to make me sound like an old curmudgeon. By now you have probably read a multitude of reviews all trying to find some clever and funny way of saying that the film is really bad.
Excerpt: Jackie Chan is old, he’s slow, and if the rumors are true he’s started using stuntmen. The only thing older and slower than Chan is the Rush Hour franchise, which ran out of gas about the same time he did.
Excerpt: Creatively, Rush Hour 3 has no reason to exist. Rush Hour 2 pretty much exhausted the limited comic possibilities left in the pairing of Chris Tucker's unstoppable mouth and Jackie Chan's fists of fury. Commercially, of course, it has every reason to exist.
Summary: Watchers who warned that a six-year gap between installments would cost the “Rush Hour” franchise some energy — especially from Jackie Chan, now in his early 50s — aren’t entirely off the mark.
Excerpt: "Rush Hour 3" is a comedy riddled with contrivances. Before the franchise can sink any lower, our first genuine laugh arrives in the sewer. It's the last laugh to come till the finalé, in which an over-computer-generated sequence of fights and thrills on the Eiffel Tower are less than spectacular.
Conclusion: Filmen: Sprattelgubben Jackie Chan och snabbprataren Chris Tucker är tillbaka en tredje gång för att göra livet surt för de kriminella. Ambassadör Han vet vem som har den hemliga listan över bossarna i det kriminella nätverket triaden men en torped vill annat och röjer han ur vägen.
Excerpt: De är tillbaka. Det har gått sex år sedan Chris Tucker och Jackie Chans omaka snutpar stoppade bovar och sjöng Edwin Starrs ”War!” på vita duken. I år gör de entré igen – och jag vet inte om jag ska skratta eller gråta. Jag erkänner, jag har inte brytt mig om att se ”Rush Hour 2”.
