Rush Hour 2 [DVD] [2001]

Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker return in the action-comedy hit Rush Hour 2, part of New Line Cinema's "Infinifilm" DVD line. The 2.35:1 anamorphic transfer for Rush Hour 2 is as close to reference quality as one can get. Audio is presented in English Dolby Digital EX 5.1, as well as English Dolby Digital ES 6.1. Fans should have a blast with both of these tracks, as each one is spaciously full of effects and mind-blowing sounds. An English Dolby Stereo track is also included. Under the "All Access Pass" menu there is a semi-entertaining commentary with director Brett Ratner and writer Jeff Nathanson. "Making Magic out of Mire" and "Fashion of Rush Hour 2" are behind-the-scenes segments featuring interviews with the cast and crew. "Evolution of a Scene" is a look at three separate scenes and how they are constructed, and "Visual Effects Deconstruction" is a peek at how the effects operators utilize models to simulate large-scale explosions. Finally there are ten deleted scenes, three theatrical trailers, and cast and crew information. The "Beyond the Movie" menu offers seven different options. "Jackie Chan's Hong Kong Introduction" is Chan narrating a segment about New York City. "Culture Clash: West Meets East" includes interviews with some of the production crew and behind-the-scenes video of the shoot. "Language Barrier" is a small feature on the language differences between some of the cast and crew, as well as the actors. "Attaining International Stardom" finds director Brett Ratner and other cast and crew members discussing the making of the film and the joys of working together. "Kung Fu Choreography" analyzes the fight scenes and action sequences, while "Lady Luck" is a student film by director Brett Ratner. Finally, there is a "Fact Track" that can be operated as the movie plays to fill the viewer in on more history and facts about Rush Hour 2.

    Rush Hour 2
    A surprise box-office smash spawns this inevitably action-packed buddy comedy follow-up that reunites director Brett Ratner with stars Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker. Chan is Chief Inspector Lee of the Royal Hong Kong Police, who travels back to China with his American colleague, Los Angeles detective James Carter (Tucker). The men intend to take some vacation time but are quickly pulled into the case of two murdered U.S. customs agents, who were investigating an illegal counterfeiting scam involving Ricky Tan (John Lone), one of the most powerful Triad gangsters in Asia and an old enemy of Lee's. Lee and Carter are soon embroiled in a dangerous mystery that also involves a sexy secret-service agent (Roselyn Sanchez), a billionaire hotel owner (Alan King), a dangerous femme fatale (Zhang Ziyi) and a finale set in a lavish Las Vegas casino. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan have great chemistry in this series. They set the bar really high in the first movie so it was hard to maintain the high expectations in this sequel, however still worth lots of laughs!

      They are back at it again


      They are both back and now they are rising all kinds of mess from China and even back to the States. Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker are just great together with the crazy comedy and intense fighting scenes.
