  Rush hour - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A rush hour is a part of the day with busy traffic and hence traffic congestion on the roads and crowded public transport; normally the two periods in a day when people are travelling to or from work or school.
The frequency of public transport is usually higher in the rush hour, and in the case of trains, longer ones are often employed.
Similarly public transport fares may be higher; this is usually presented as an off-peak discount for single fares, though season tickets or multi-ride tickets, commonly used in rush hours by commuters, are also sold at a discount.

 Filmtracks: Rush Hour 2 (Lalo Schifrin)
Rush Hour 2: (Lalo Schifrin) Whether you like them or not, the pairing of Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker turned out to be more of a success in Rush Hour than anyone could have predicted, with the film grossing over $250 million worldwide.
For the directors and producers of the Rush Hour phenomenon, an equally important element of the film's success was the musical score by legendary jazz composer Lalo Schifrin, who remains best known for his hit television themes and scores for such shows as Mannix and Mission: Impossible.
Schifrin's score for the original Rush Hour was a sort of novelty item, overshadowed obviously by the slapstick action in the film, but nevertheless of interest to Schifrin's fans and those few who collect such comedy action scores.

 Review: Rush Hour   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
In Rush Hour, the actor is relegated to participating in various uninspired action sequences that could have just as easily been executed by Chuck Norris.
Unfortunately, in Rush Hour, Tucker is allowed to do pretty much what he wants, and he ends up interfering with Chan's few attempts at subtle humor.
There's little doubt that Rush Hour is going to be a success at the box office, and, given audiences' love of sequels, Rush Hour 2 is probably already in the planning stages.

 Rush Hour (1998): Reviews
Rush Hour effectively teams Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in a formulaic but funny action comedy that should please fans of both stars.
The problem with Rush Hour is that the film isn’t a partnership, it’s a Chris Tucker movie with Chan as straight man.
What saves Rush Hour from the discard pile is the strength of these familiar elements and the skill with which they were employed.

 Salon Entertainment | Hong Kong Hollywood
In "Rush Hour," as an LAPD detective assigned to assist his Hong Kong counterpart Jackie Chan in retrieving a kidnapped little girl, Tucker is equal parts hilarious and wearisome.
Tucker and Chan don't bring out much in each other in "Rush Hour." The movie seems to proceed from somebody's notion that it would be hilarious to see a fl guy and a Chinese guy working together.
Judging by "Rush Hour," Ratner is one of the new breed of creeps who know how to make a movie look slick and how to do to action sequences what the chef at Benihana does to a piece of sirloin.

 Rush Hour 2 : film review
Rush Hour 2 continues the tradition of lame sequels to originals that didn't even warrant a second instalment to begin with.
A loud, boring mess that rarely comes to life, this money sponge posing as a movie will no doubt make the millions who enjoyed the first film happy, but not many beyond that.
The slightest bit of ingenuity and effort on the behalf of the cast and crew might have turned this into something along the lines of Lethal Weapon 2: a sequel that lets the audience in on the fun.
