Critics 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.

The whole film plays like an outtake, and that I do mean as a compliment.

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

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

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

Less compelling than the first, but fun for fans.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the movie has a lot of action violence and comic peril. That means that the fight scenes are not very graphic. In almost cartoon-style fashion, characters get beat up badly and then are shown in the next scene without any wounds. School-age kids who see this movie may get unrealistic ideas about the consequences of fighting. The movie also has some strong language, sexual innuendo, and a massage parlor scene in which Tucker is allowed to choose from an array of girls and selects several of them.
