Excerpt: Should there be a Rush Hour 4 , the studio could save a lot of money. They don’t need writers to pen a script. Simply have Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker walk around and screw things up. Given the abysmal quality of this sequel, it is safe to say the best part remains the blooper reel at the end of the film. In previous Rush Hours , the bloopers were merely a bonus.
Conclusion: Well with a great transfer and sound, a likable cast, excellent supplements, nice action scenes and funny jokes, though not an exceptional film by any measure, Rush Hour 3 is a well produced film. Fans of this dynamic duo will probably like revisiting their old friends, while others might get to pass an enjoyable hour watching a good yarn. Just don't expect anything more than a good action comedy flick.
Conclusion: '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. A Blu-ray release, however, this one simply hits it out of the park -- both the video and audio are five-star, while the extras are way better than the film deserves.
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. Well, why waste time trying to sugar coat it? Rush Hour 3 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. It’s downright depressing watching Chan attempt to convincingly pull off stunts without any of the blinding speed or amazing ability which made him such an awesome action star in the first place.
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. Not surprisingly, the bean-counters with pie charts, graphs, and focus-group findings indicating that everyone stands to make a fortune off a second Rush Hour sequel won out.
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. You will find the outtakes the most enjoyable part, and they're not even in the movie! Don't rush to see this one.
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”. Nummer ett gav mig inte precis mersmak, och jag valde aktivt att inte se uppföljaren. När jag ser öppningsscenen av ”Rush Hour 3” blir jag påmind om varför jag tog det beslutet.
