A story about this — 5 years ago
I love Jackie Chan movies (guilty pleasure). I greatly enjoyed the first two Rush Hour movies. So it’s not surprising that I really liked this one. It was hilarious and had lots of fun action sequences. The downside is that it seemed EXTREMELY short, though it was supposedly 90 minutes, it felt even shorter — I felt like they needed another 10 minutes or so just to complete the story arc and build to a real climax — almost every battle had the same amount of tension so when the end fight scene came I didn’t know it was the end! I thought it was the “one just before the boss fight” you know? Where it’s pretty bad but then the MC has to face his personal demons and succeed where he’d previously failed. I felt like that was missing and so the movie seemed rushed, especially compared to either Shanghai Knight/Noon movie. But as a fun, funny action comedy, as a Jackie Chan movie, I’ll let it go.
Very funny and as always, the bloopers are half the fun. If it’s not your scene, this won’t convert you, but it’s a 90 minute escape for the Jackie Chan believers out there. ;)
