Rush Hour | 1998 | PG-13 | - 1.6.5

Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker are an unlikely crime-fighting duo in this comedy/action flick. Co-starring Elizabeth Pena, Tom Wilkinson, Philip Baker Hall, Mark Rolston, Tzi Ma, Rex Linn, Ken Leung, Chris Penn and Julia Hsu.

SEX/NUDITY 1 - Some sexual innuendo. A man accidentally puts his hands on a woman's clothed breasts.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - Lots of fights; many people are kicked, punched, elbowed, etc. A man repeatedly tries to hit another with an axe. Lots of threatening with guns and lots of shoot-outs: many people are shot, and we sometimes see some blood on their clothing. A man shoots two others and blood sprays on a girl's clothing. A man falls from a very high ceiling beam into a small pool and presumably dies; another man falls and lands on a flag, uninjured. A man jumps out of a moving car, which explodes seconds later, and he gets some bloody cuts on his hands and face. A building explodes while many people are inside. Two men fall through boards on a catwalk and are nearly run over when they land on the ground. A man is nearly crushed between two dumpsters. A girl punches a man who's trying to grab her; as she's running away from him, she's snatched by a man on a motorcycle and pushed into a van. Explosives are strapped to a girl and a man threatens to set them off. Some reckless driving and car crashes; in one scene, a van is driven into the side of a building.

LANGUAGE 5 - One F-word derivative, lots of anatomical and scatological references, lots of mild obscenities and some insults and racial slurs.

MESSAGE - The good guys always win, though they sometimes get sidetracked along the way.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
