here for previous weeks news and
review:- Rush Hour
A real good marshal arts film that
takes the mickey out of the Americans. Directed by Brett
this is yet another funny and
well constructed film. The only down side is the annoying scripting
of Det. James Carter, LAPD played by Chris Tucker makes the creator too much like Axel Folly in
Beverly Hills Cop. Chris Tucker cannot deliver that type of stylized
acting, so it adds to the problem. The film starts with
James Carter on holiday and ends in
about the same mood with the joint star of the film Detective Inspector
Lee played by Jackie Chan. With high kicks flying and fists pounding, the two try to stop a Triad
Gang from distributing counterfeit US Dollars with an over the top, tongue
cheek plot. You have to like Jacky Chan films to appreciate this one
to the full, except that it is not of the same standard as Jacky Chan. Otherwise this film
is well worth seeing.
