'Rush Hour 3'

Rush Hour 3

It’s been six years since “Rush Hour 2,” and police officer Carter (Chris Tucker) has been demoted to traffic cop, a job he treats with such dance-move-irreverence that car flow around his designated intersection doesn’t stand a chance. Agent Lee (Jackie Chan) is busy acting as bodyguard to Chinese Ambassador Han (Tzi Ma) who suffers an assassination attempt while giving a speech before the World Criminal Court in Los Angeles where he was about to name the leader of an international crime ring. A foot chase across a busy highway puts Lee in striking range of the hit man, but he’s unable to shoot when he discovers that it is his “brother” Kenji (Hiroyuki Sanada), now aligned with the Triad crime gang working in Paris, France where Lee and Carter will soon follow. In their third and ostensibly last outing together, Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker go through the motions of energizing the Rush Hour franchise, albeit with less physical action and much less apparent joy.

Rated PG-13, 91 mins. (C)
