Number of Times Seen – 1 (28 Jul 2016)
Brief Synopsis – For their third installment in the franchise, the duo must travel to Paris in order to safeguard a woman concealing the secret of the Hong Kong Mafia.
My Take on it – The final installment of this trilogy is unfortunately the weakest of them all and unfortunately that isn’t saying much because I can’t say that the entire trilogy itself was that great; mediocre would be a much better descriptive term for it.
Once again, Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker’s chemistry is lacking here and the story actually feels like it just limps along.
As always tho, one can count on Jackie Chan’s choreographed action sequences to make watching this film somewhat enjoyable.
The story isn’t very good here and it feels pieced together and doesn’t flow like it is supposed to.
I must say that I’m quite happy and relieved that they stopped making these films because they just don’t work as well as buddy-buddy cop movies should.
I know that they recently started a TV show with this premise and I wonder of it’s any good because the premise definitely has potential, but it just didn’t work with this trilogy IMHO.
Bottom Line – The weakest of the weak trilogy. The chemistry between the leads is once again lost and the film limps along. Chan’s action sequences are still amazingly choreographed so there is what to enjoy. The story is relatively weak and feels too much like is was poorly pieced together. Glad they stopped making these films because they just really wore out their welcome.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The production crew agreed upon a $20 fine any time anyone’s cell phone rang during shooting. The money would be donated to the homeless charity Chrysalis. By late February, it had over $600. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
