Rush Hour

Jays Rating:
Actors: /

A good movie for young and old, blind or sighted, is Rush Hour. In this action-comedy, Jackie Chan is a cop from Hong Kong named Lee. He is summoned to Los Angeles to help find the kidnapped daughter of the Ambassador to Hong Kong. James Carter, played by Chris Tucker, is a Los Angeles cop requested by the FBI to keep Lee from interfering in the case. Lee and Carter team up like Batman and Robin, or Abbot and Costello, or … sorry! With the help of Carters street contacts, they manage to track the kidnappers to a Chinese restaurant. Once inside the restaurant, Lee takes over with karate screams, kicks and chops –not pork chops- yet the kidnappers manage to elude the dynamic duo. The FBI also shows up with the $45,000,000 ransom for the girl, but at the sight of Lee and Carter, the kidnappers threaten to kill her. Lee, feeling responsible for the foul-up, boards a plane bound for Hong Kong. Carter, not willing to give up, contacts his police friends, retrieves Lee off the airplane and makes another attempt to rescue the girl. I liked this movie; the action was believable and the comedy was fresh. My only complaint was the assault on my ears by Chris Tuckers high voice, obviously the result of his pants being too tight! This is the first good movie I have heard in weeks and I give it an A rating.

This movie has been given a PG-13 rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
