Consensus: Rush Hour 2 doesn't feel as fresh or funny as the first, and the stunts lack some of the intricacy normally seen in Chan's films.

For fans of the still-youthful franchise, this movie's going to hit the spot.

Nell Minow
Common Sense Media

Less compelling than the first, but fun for fans.

While the rest of it isn't really any good, it's certainly no chore to watch.

About half as much fun as the original, and for August, that's probably good enough.

Margaret A. McGurk
Cincinnati Enquirer

A gaudy, whirling dervish of escapist fun.

Seattle Times

Delivers its share of laughs, but offers nothing you haven't already seen.

Jeffrey Chen
Window to the Movies

A well-honed stunts-and-shtick flick.

Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker have great chemistry, using their differences to their advantage. A good movie if your looking for just comedy.
