Rush Hour 2 (26-Jul-2001)

Director: Brett Ratner

Writers: Ross LaManna; Jeff Nathanson

Keywords: Action/Comedy, Undercover Cops

Sequel to 1998's Rush Hour follows detectives Carter and Lee as a planned Hong Kong vacation gives way to an attempt to undermine a Triad-backed counterfeiting operation.

First sequel to Rush Hour (1998). Fresh off the action-packed, high-flying events of Rush Hour, zany American detective James Carter is back in Hong Kong, looking to enjoy the Chinese metropolis's nightlife while Chief Inspector Lee endeavors to neutralize a Triad lord suspected of killing two men at the American embassy. One thing leads to another, and before long, our men are back at it as a cross-cultural crime-fighting tag team, utilizing their talents and abilities to dismantle a threat posed by a Triad-affiliated counterfeiting ring endangering political stability in Hong Kong and abroad.
