In his blog, Chan had this to say about the Rush Hour films, “When we finished filming, I felt very disappointed because it was a movie I didn’t appreciate and I did not like the action scenes involved. I felt the style of action was too Americanized and I didn’t understand the American humor.”
He said he had made the sequel, because he was offered an “irresistible” amount of money for it and the third one he did for the fans of the series. It is pretty rare to hear actors admit they don’t enjoy their projects, especially when they are doing all their own fight scenes and stunts like Chan does.
Chris Tucker must have caught wind of the money Chan was making from the films, because in the third film, Tucker asked to be paid a crazy amount of money. What do you think of the Rush Hour films?
