Chan and Tucker are great together again. If you liked the first Rush Hour you will love this one. Action and comedy throught the movie.

This movie has some very sidesplitting moments. I thought it might be slightly more risky, in a non politically-correct kind of way; though there are definitely some risky comedic scenes here.

You will know the one I am talking about when you see it, and that scene is HILARIOUS. (The one where Jackie and Chris are chained up in the truck) All around it was as expected, and probably worth seeing at the theatre.

If you've seen Rush Hour then you've got to see Rush Hour 2. This movie is the bomb and talk about Action!! Non Stop, and lots of gut busting moments. Lets get ready for Rush Hour 3, bring in On!!

The first was good, funny, and fast moving. Rarely does a sequel do justice to the original, this one does and even beats the original, it left me looking forward to a Rushhour 3.

The action was fast and furious, Tucker joining in more of the action fight scenes with Chan, and the movement to different venues was alot like the good old Bond films where you got to travel the world in one movie. The dialogue was great and played alot on the 1st movies characters lines, which made it even more hilarious.

This is a DO NOT MISS FILM!!! If you do not laugh throughout this whole film, then you are dead and need buried!

"Rush Hour 2" lacks the fun and the excitment of the first movie. Know Why? Chris Trucher dominated the movie with his big mouth, and didn't give Jackie Chan enough room for his fights. Too much noise and little else.

"Rush Hour 2" is action-packed and funny. Chan still kicks a$$ despite the fact that he's gettin' older. Tucker can get annoying after awhile, but I think that most of his one-liners in this movie are priceless, so I can forgive his grating voice. Anyways, I thought the original was better, especially the ending. This movie seems to have the kind of sudden, quiet ending after a huge explosion of action. As in JP3, it doesn't work all that well.

But this movie remains entertaining and consistently funny. Go see it if you're a fan of the original.

Much Much better than the first one.

In this one they had alot more chemistry. Since in the first one it was well known that they pretty much hated each other off the bat. But now they are good friends which you can tell in this one.

Yes Chris Tucker talks alot, but Jackie can;t speak that good yet and he is meant for the action sequences. Which were great like usual for Jackie. Plus Zhang Zi Yi (also known from Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon) Was excellent. Female version Of Jackie! :) We can be assured of seeing more from her.

Go see the movie for some humor and good fighting. Plus the outtakes at the end are almost the funniest part of the movie.

This is a good movie. Funny, exciting, full of stunts.

Worth seeing, maybe not right now, but soon.

Funny as hell! Tucker and Chan are at it again in this funny action packed sequel.

If you liked the 1st, you'll love the 2nd.
