A loyal and dedicated Hong Kong Inspector teams up with a reckless and loudmouthed L.A.P.D. detective to rescue the Chinese Consul's kidnapped daughter, while trying to arrest a dangerous crime lord along the way.

The film's box office commercial success led to two sequels: Rush Hour 2 (2001) and Rush Hour 3 (2007).


Jan (Age 11) - ★★★★★

"The funniest action movie I have ever seen, I really liked Chris Tucker as LAPD detective Carter. Other characters like lee and juntao put me on the edge of my seat. I can't wait to watch Rush hour 2 & 3. I would recommend this movie to anyone who loves daft, action packed, comedies. Alongside Johnny English this is one of the most hilarious films I have ever seen."
