Rush Hour 3
A Movie Review

MPAA Rated - PG-13

It's 1:30 Long

A Review by
The Dude on the Right
It is what it is. I guess that is the easiest description you can really give "Rush Hour 3."

Okay, that was a pretty lame opening for this review, but come on, itís a "Rush Hour" movie, and is there anything that can really be changed for the franchise? No. So other than, and Iím sorry Whammy if you are reading this, my movie going experience being a little eschewed because the person I was going to see the movie was 1) Late, B) Couldnít hear her cell phone ring because she likes it warm so had her car windows open, III) Didnít call to say she was running late until after the trailers started, and Four) Failed to pay attention to her text messages stating when we were supposed to meet at the theater, all resulting in my missing all of the trailers (part of my movie-going experience I love) and having to enter the theater in the dark (part of a movie-going experience I hate, but luckily we found seats rather quickly), "Rush Hour 3" will give you exactly what to expect if you saw either Version 1 or Version 2.

The story is simple. Jackie Chan is back as Inspector Lee and Chris Tucker is back as James Carter. Lee is upset with Tucker for shooting his girlfriend, but the pair get teamed together again when an assassination attempt doesnít assassinate, and they are hot on the trail of some bad Chinese dudes, or one dude, or a list of dudes, or does it really matter? This time their travels take them to Paris where they donít know the language but find maybe the best part of the movie, a cab driver named George (Yvan Attal), who has his own version of stereotypes about Americans, or just wants to kill someone. Our dynamic duo find a chick, Genevieve (Noťmie Lenoir), who needs saving, canít see who the bad dude is even though most of us already figured it out, martial art their way into kicking a lot of ass, and get pissed on by a dog, well, at least Carter does.

There are high-flying stunts atop the Eifel Tower, Jackie Chan shows he can still do the stunts, Chris Tucker wasnít nearly annoying as he was in Version 2, but Genevieve wasnít nearly as attractive as I thought she should be. The jokes are obvious, the bad guys who are posing as good guys are obvious, and lots of chairs fly around because that is what you use when you donít have a weapon in a good martial artsí fight.

I did like "Rush Hour 3" a little more than "Rush Hour 2," so Iíll be giving the movie 3 stars out of 5. I think George the cab driver added just enough of a comic element to get me out of the fact I missed the trailers, hated being late, and was able to just sit back and enjoy the "Rush Hour" franchise for being what it is. If you want it to be what it is you will enjoy the movie, but if you couldnít stand Version 1 or Version 2, you will not like what Version 3 is.

Thatís it for this one! Iím The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
