So there's part in the movie where recently arrived Chinese cop Rush (Jackie Chan) is in the car with LA cop Hour (Chris Tucker, never better) and he turns on the radio and Hour is like "Man, don't touch my radio! You've got a lot to learn about America." The laughs just continue from there in this buddy cop comedy. The highlights are the action sequences with Chan. Director Bert Ratner does some of his most subtle work, perhaps only matched by "Rush Hour 3."

The original romp of the series between two unlikely cops/buddies from two very different cultures: China| Los Angeles. Fast-paced, mostly funny, and also occasionally annoying as Chris Tucker screeches a bit too much.

The movie “Rush Hour” is an outstanding and very entertaining movie. The quality of this movie is absolutely marvellous, everything including the characters and background was very clear. “Rush Hour” also included some intense martial arts performed by Jackie Chan (Lee) which was very interesting as well as entertaining to watch. The colours of the movie were also very well displayed in different sections. The plot of “Rush Hour” is terrific with two cops, one from Los Angeles and the other from Hong Kong, working together to find a kidnapper who has kidnaped an important/powerful person’s daughter. The emotion and mood which this movie expresses are amazing with a glimpse of sadness, anger, joy and humour. The ending of this movie was very enjoyable and happy as the cops have cracked the case and found the child. I believe that this movie is enjoyable for adults and teens. However, I believe that “Rush Hour” is very inappropriate for younger children as it uses curse words and shows some inappropriate scenes at unexpected times. Anyone who enjoys action-packed movies should definitely watch “Rush Hour”.

Rush hour is an action movie but it's also full of humour. Jackie Chan as Lee is a Hong Kong detective inspector. When the Chinese ambassador is kidnapped he is sent to assist the FBI, and he gets stuck with the clumsy, silly, trouble maker Carter. Together, they do not make a good team at first, but after getting to know each other and assisting each other, they find out that they've been ditched by the FBI. But this does not stop them! Lee and Carter decide to work on their own and kill the case.

You put Jackie Chan, and Chris Tucker you get a funny double duo. My favorite part of the movie when Chris Tucker teaches Jackie Chan how to sing the song War I believe it's called. Also when he tries to touch his radio too "You never touch a black man's radio you can do that in China but you will get killed out here. Just loved it.
