Finally! I never thought I’d live to see the day when a sequel would actually be better than the original. I’m referring to Rush Hour 2 – it’s funnier and has twice the action. The opening has Detective James Carter (Chris Tucker) taking a vacation in Hong Kong three days after Rush Hour 1 ends. His all-consuming goal is to find a woman – any woman – much to the dismay and embarrassment of his friend, Inspector Lee (Jackie Chan). After a bomb explodes in the American Embassy, Inspector Lee and Detective Carter are tracking down the bomber when they stumble across a counterfeit ring. The trail leads Carter and Lee to Las Vegas where Lee shows off his martial arts skills in fight after fight, while Carter keeps both eyes on the beautiful babes. Carter eventually has to fight one of the women he has been watching because of her ties to the counterfeit gang. Both Lee and Carter are shocked to find out who is really in charge and yes, there are more bombs, more fights, and a lot of martial arts. Although the storyline in this film is simple, the one-liners and innuendoes are hilarious. I loved this film and the only thing that still annoys my acute sense of hearing is Chris Tuckers high-pitched voice. (He really needs to stop wearing tight pants.) This is a superb movie and one of the few A ratings for the summer blockbusters.

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.
