The title really makes no sense at all, considering you only see one rush hour traffic jam in the film. Still, Chan and Tucker are a pretty funny duo in this buddy cop film. Chan’s action sequences are amazing. I love the stunts that he performs and his comedic timing is pretty good, especially since he really didn’t know a ton of English for this film. Chris Tucker is one of those actors that I’m embarrassed that I like. He’s kind of a guilty pleasure of mine, I’ve always liked him since The Fifth Element. The action is good, I laughed a lot and it’s just a good type of entertainment to kick back and enjoy after a long week. Tom Wilkinson is also a great bad guy. It’s not a groundbreaking film, but if you like action comedies then you should check this out.
