Movie Summary

Brett Ratner

The film picks up where Rush Hour 2 left off with Carter directing traffic and Detective Lee sitting in at the World Criminal Court. Detective Lee's favorite ambassador, Chinese Ambassador Han, is speaking when suddenly a bullet strikes him in the shoulder. Lee immediately pursues the would-be assassin and discovers that it is his Japanese foster brother Kenji. This sets the familiar ball rolling and the Rush Hour duo come together to solve another action-packed mystery.
