Like the first two films in the franchise, 'Rush Hour 3' was again directed by Brett Ratner ('Red Dragon,' 'X-Men: The Last Stand') and the film is typical of his soulless approach to franchise moviemaking. The whole affair feels lifeless and phoned-in, with the division of labor totally predictable -- Chan breaks the bones, while Tucker delivers the most painfully stereotypical "urban" humor that even 'Norbit'-era Eddie Murphy wouldn't stoop to. Ratner smothers it all with a generic slickness but there is no real discernible, individual style apparent. The action and comedy are ruthlessly modulated, but where's the spark, the dramatic tension, the sense that anyone really cares one way or another about what's going on in the story? It's all so pointless.
In the UK the movie costs £13.99 for the HD version and the file weighs in at a cool 5.05 GB if you opt for the 1080p edition. It's not yet clear if any bonus features will be included in the download bundle. Additionally the film will almost certainly be available to rent from iTunes at roughly the same time.
Premiere rush could certainly produce some excellent home movies, it had become a bit unwieldy for those looking for a simple solution. It's basically a short-cut version of iMovie that lets you edit a video, add voiceover and music, and share it to Facebook or Twitter from within the app. 2b1af7f3a8
