Synopsis


Rush Hour
Brett Ratner directed this action-comedy that found box-office success by teaming Chris Tucker with Jackie Chan -- performing his own stunts as per his earlier films. As the story begins, Hong-Kong supercop Lee's (Chan), detective savvy leads to the confiscation of $500 million in weapons, drugs, and Chinese art. When Hong Kong Chinese Consul Han (Tzi Ma), is sent on a diplomatic mission to Los Angeles, his 11-year-old daughter, Soo Young (Julia Hsu), is abducted by an international criminal mastermind. The FBI assures Han they will find the kidnappers and return her safely, yet Han only trusts his longtime friend and ally (also his daughter's beloved martial arts teacher) Inspector Lee, who immediately flies in to help. Unwilling to have an outsider interfere in their investigation, the FBI assigns rogue LAPD detective (and buffoon) James Carter (Chris Tucker) to the case. Hoping to impress the FBI, Carter enthusiastically reports for work but is dismayed to discover his real mission is only to keep Lee away from the case (read b-a-b-y-s-i-t-t-e-r). The arrogant Carter reacts by embarking on a one-man crusade to solve the case, but he must first distract Lee. It doesn't take Carter long before he realizes he has greatly underestimated his Hong Kong counterpart, who sees what's going on and slips away. Impatient FBI agents try to cast off these unwanted misfit cops, but with an assist from LAPD bomb expert Tania Johnson (Elizabeth Pena), Carter and Lee eventually confront the bad guys in a full-tilt action sequence. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

Rush Hour 3
In this third installment of the popular action comedy franchise, LAPD Detective James Carter (Chris Tucker) and Chief Inspector Lee (Jackie Chan) book a flight for Europe and prepare to clean up the streets of Paris after discovering that Chinese triads have extended their criminal influence to the City of Lights. Chinese Ambassador Han (Tzi Ma) is in Los Angeles and about to reveal the details of a clandestine triad conspiracy to the World Criminal Court when an assassin takes aim and pulls the trigger. Though Carter has been demoted to directing traffic at the time of the shooting, Lee is acting as a bodyguard to Han when the bullets begin to fly. Lee quickly gives chase, but hesitates when he realizes that the gunman is Kenji (Hiroyuki Sanada), his old friend from the orphanage. When triads steal an envelope containing vital information regarding the conspiracy from Soo Yung's (Zhang Jingchu) Chinatown kung fu studio, Carter and Chief Inspector Lee race to reach Genevieve (Noémie Lenoir), an underground entertainer who could prove the key to bagging the bad guys. During the course of their investigation, however, triads clash with the French police, threatening to turn the romance capitol of Europe into an explosive hotbed of crime and violence. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

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

    Man, how long I have waited for this set to come out? The third film came out on BluRay way back in 2007, the first one back in 2009 and the second film delayed time and time again until this set came out last year (I don't know why, since several countries had the second film on BluRay years before this release, and is sadly not available by itself in the States). I was going to buy the first and third film on BluRay several times, losing hope on this film coming out, but luckily I persevered with my 4-disc DVD set and my patience has paid off! For a quick rundown of the series, its about the adventures of 2 mismatched cops (Jackie Chan & Chris Tucker) who take on crime, wisecrack and fistfight, all while listening to classic tunes (Trust me, its the quickest way to explain the trilogy this way). All of the films have their fun, with the films release order is my placement on favorites, with each film having their flaws but 90 minutes of comedy, action and beautiful locations. They entertain, nothing more, nothing less and that is a-okay in my book. AV quality for the films are as follows: Rush Hour: Not the best of the bunch, but still looks great, but could use a nice 4k remaster, along with the rest of the films. The soundtrack is a terrific 7.1 DTS-HD track, with every gunshot, punch, explosion and Beach Boys song coming through loud and clear. Rush Hour 2: A step up from the first film, it looks phenomenal (WB did a 2k remaster way back in 2014) but yet again a 4k remaster would be superior. The soundtrack, only in 5.1 DTS-HD, is still fantastic and carries the same benefits as the first film, just two less speakers. Rush Hour 3: The oldest transfer of the bunch, it still looks fantastic and the audio, a 7.1 DTS-HD track is equally as great. Extras are very plentiful, spread across 5 discs and are as follows: Rush Hour: 2 audio commentaries (Director Brett Ratner on track #1; #2 with composer Lalo Schifrin), a 40-minute making of featurette, a short film from Ratner with optional commentary, 2 music videos with commentary from Ratner, deleted scenes & a trailer. Rush Hour 2: A commentary (Director Brett Ratner & writer Jeff Nathanson), Focus Points (Several featurettes shown through the film and a short film from Ratner with commentary), multiple making of featurettes, deleted scenes with optional commentary from Ratner, outtakes and the trailer Rush Hour 3: (Disc 1) A commentary with director Brett Ratner & writer Jeff Nathanson, an enhanced video commentary with the same duo (Literally the same track, just with video along with storyboards and CGI before and after effects) and the films trailer.(Disc 2) Starting off is the Making of Rush Hour 3, a 90-minute documentary split in 5 parts, that is probably one of the best ones ever made, Le Rush Hour Trois: Production Diaries, is several on-set video diaries totaling over one hour in length, outtakes, deleted scenes with optional commentary and a Visual Effects Reel. There is also a bonus disc with a retrospective on the series with interviews with Jackie Chan & Brett Ratner (No Chris Tucker? No interviews with the composer or writers or etc? Wasted potential WB) that is nice and neat. Overall, this is a nice set with a lot of the extras from the DVD's, good AV specs and a nice compact package and interesting artwork and for the price is a great deal if you need some action and comedy in your life. Totally recomended.

    Rush Hour is a film series that contains three Chinese-American martial arts/action-comedy buddy cop films that were created by Ross LaManna and directed by Brett Ratner. All three films feature a pair of detectives, a Hong Kong Police Force inspector and an American LAPD detective, played by Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker, who got a series of adventures that often involve corrupt crime figures. The three films were released theatrically between 1998 and 2007 and have ultimately achieved commercial success as each incorporated various elements of martial arts, humor and the buddy cop subgenre. The first film, Rush Hour, features the two mismatched officers who must work together to rescue the Chinese Consul’s kidnapped daughter. Originally released on September 18, 2998, the film grossed just over $200 million worldwide. The second film, Rush Hour 2 features the two actors reprising their roles as Inspector Lee and Detective Carter. The film finds the uncanny duo stuck right in the middle of a counterfeit scam that involves the Triads. The film was originally released on August 3, 2001 and received very mixed reviews from critics, but ended up grossing just over $347 million at the worldwide box office. The third and final film, Rush Hour 3 brings the iconic duo back and continues on with the story that originated in the second film. Placing emphasis on the importance of fighting the Triads at the World Criminal Court and as the team works together to hopefully track down Shy Shen, a somewhat mythical person who is of great importance to the Chinese Mob. The film was originally released on August 10, 2007 and grossed just over $258 million worldwide.

    What can I say, I walked into BestBuy on a normal (Used to call it DVD Tues) "Movie Tuesday" to pick up the new weekly releases and there on the rack was the Rush Hour Trilogy! AT $15!!!!! OK, So I was a little peeved when it first released (as I watch every Blu-ray/4K release date) that none of the Best Buy's here in Anchorage had the Rush Hour Trilogy. It happens. SpaceCamp was released this last Tuesday and NOPE.. So old films dont get the priority but that's OK> What price it launched at I don't know?, but buying all three films in a nice trilogy slip box was really nice. Worth every penny. So, if they are still at your local BB at a good price, maybe you haven't seen them? Go grab em :) "Do you understand the words that are coming out of my mouth?"! LOL

    Jackie Chan/Chris Tucker and Brett Ratner clearly struck gold in this trilogy of movies, they really did! All of the movies were good, all of them action packed, great storylines, great locations. All around, it was a great trilogy of movies for sure! I saw Jackie in movies in the past as with Chris as well too. Putting them together was pure brilliance, no question! If you love to laugh, you'll definitely find instances where you'll bust out laughing at the comedy that's also in these movies too! If you love action mixed in with great storylines and great action, you'll definitely find it in this collection! It will be money very well spent and after you watch them, I'm sure you'll agree with me on this! :-)

    Chan at his finest. Hong Kong film legend and kung-fu master Jackie Chan of incredible titles such as "Project A" and "Drunken master" stars in the Hollywood hit alongside american funnyman Chris Tucker. The trilogy is one of the greatest comedy series of all time, and is extremely memorable with all of Chan's hilarious English dialogue and brilliant stunt choreography. These films are a MUST SEE for Chan fans and really anyone who likes to laugh. Chan's unique blend of action and comedy is what separates him from all other action stars. Anyone who wants to laugh and be on the edge of their seat with intense action/kung-fu, pick this one up for sure.

    These are all 3 funny movies in my opinion so buying this collection on blu ray was a no brainer although i really wish that the aspect ratio was 1:85:1 instead of 2:35:1. 2:35:1 and 2:40:1 is not ideal unless you have a 60 inch or bigger tv and i do not.only 1:85:1 will fill your screen unless you have a zoom feature on your blu ray remote then it cuts off the sides slightly.They need to offer all blu ray movies in 2 different aspects so that people that own any size tv would be happy,like they used to with alot of dvds.If they were to do this with all blu ray releases i might actually buy more blu rays.Hope this review helps.

    I love the Rush Hour series and happy they finally released all of them on Blu-ray. All three movies come on individual discs with a 4th loaded with extras. The box that holds the discs is actually fairly sturdy (similar to the Eastwood "Man with No Name" trilogy box). The picture is very good for each movie with great sound. The extras are fun, and there are plenty. I would recommend this set to anyone that likes these movies or those who are into the buddy cop film (action, comedy). The first Rush Hour is the best, while the 2nd is very close. The 3rd one is good, but not as good as 1 & 2 (just my opinion of course).

    Rush hour 2 was never available for sale in blu ray quality before now. I have the DVD trilogy and this buy was a no-brainer. The quality is excellent and I haven't even gotten into the extra discs yet. The art on the discs and covers are really well done and each movie's blu ray disc has the original extras from the DVD versions on them and many more because of the extra space on blu rays, I suppose.
