Director: Brett Ratner

Starring: Jackie Chan, Chris Tucker, Vinnie Jones, Noémie Lenoir

After 6 long years, Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker are back in their highly acclaimed comic duo roles as Detective Carter and Inspector Lee in this third instalment. This time they have a different backdrop as the film is set in the wondrous city that is Paris, France. But even beauty has its flaws, as the two become mixed up in the dealings of the Chinese triad. Of course this takes place with the usual female distractions…

Eagerly awaited, this last part in the trilogy does justice to the two characters we all know and love. Not only does it keep its original two major actors, but it supports them with an incredible line-up. Viewers are introduced to the up and coming breathtaking French star Noémie Lenoir, who shines in her role as seductress. Britain’s own Vinnie Jones even makes an appearance, and even more extraordinary is the addition of the legendary director, Roman Polanski, who astounds all with his well-acted role as the annoying French Detective, Revi.

Predictably nominated as ‘The Best Summer Movie you haven’t seen yet’, MTV’s (most bizarre) Movie award, this film does not fail to live up to the standards set by the previous ones. Ratner works closely with his cinematographer, J. Michael Muro, to give shots that place audience right in the action. The scenes are brilliantly edited to support the comedy cleverly written into the script by Jeff Nathanson, who also provided us with the classic one-liners in the second film. The final product is a movie which does not fall into the same unsatisfying conventions one might expect in most sequels.

Rush Hour fanatics will not be disappointed, as it is one of those films you can see over and over again without losing comedic value. Even if you haven’t seen the first two, this is a definite must-see for all!
