    Rush Hour, the Jackie Chan-Chris Tucker big-screen martial-arts action-comedy franchise, has now given birth to a noisy and likable TV series.

    It's entertaining in a none-too-challenging kind of way.

  • Diane Werts

    The plotting had better up its game, too, with nearly every pilot “twist” being ridiculously predictable.

  • Robert Rorke

    With only one episode available for review, it’s impossible to determine if Rush Hour is hampered by its need to set up contrasts between the lawmen and solve a crime. Maybe things get better.

  • Rob Lowman

    The best thing about the series is its likeable cast. ... With only one episode available, it’s hard to tell if Rush Hour will offer up more than its light and breezy attitude. No one is looking to weigh it down, but if turns into a mystery-of-the-week procedural, the jokes and action will get old fast.

    These characters need more development than this first rushed hour gives them.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    A dispiriting, derivative buddy-cop comedy.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    This is a series that CBS should have kept doing without. But 18 years after Rush Hour hit it very big, here’s a TV version that for the most part falls flatter than a thug on the receiving end of a Yan Naing Lee kick.

  • LaToya Ferguson

    The Rush Hour movie franchise is unfortunately downgraded for TV, right down to the casting of relative unknowns Hires and Foo as Carter and Lee. They may be aware they’re in a buddy cop show, but lack any of the chemistry that such a pairing should entail.

  • Kevin P. Sullivan

    We get more bland network-procedural action. [1/8 Apr 2016, p.99]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Jeff Korbelik

    The pilot is mildly amusing. Neither Foo, nor Hires, is as engaging as Tucker and Chan, and the chemistry between them is lacking.

  • Sonia Saraiya

    The pilot is hardly memorable at all, a pale facsimile of a thing that might have been funny, once.

    Salon Full Review
  • Josh Bell

    Rush Hour isn’t particularly funny, and there’s nothing exciting about its familiar crime-drama structure. Without unique star power to carry it, it’s just another dull procedural on a network already filled with them.

    Las Vegas Weekly Full Review
  • Dan Fienberg

    CBS' Rush Hour is diluted and fairly charmless, but it's certainly no worse than what the movies already did to the brand.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    A paint-by-numbers action-comedy.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Isaac Feldberg

    For every slick sequence and outrageous situation the pilot sets up, Rush Hour is about as amusing as being stuck in highway gridlock. Foo and Hires aren’t operating on the same frequency, and there’s little chemistry between them. More worryingly, the pair have to contend with scripts that even audiences in the late ’90s would have deemed stale.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    The formula [dropping Asian heroes into Western settings], however, also perhaps unavoidably traffics in hoary stereotypes, even if Hires, a stand-up comic, dials down the clowning from Tucker’s much-lampooned performance.

    Variety Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    The jokes that are deployed in Rush Hour, though certainly not the worst I’ve heard on TV recently, are so deeply uninspired, so uncaring in relation to the story and the characters, that the focus on such things leaves a sour aftertaste.
