Tero H (ru) wrote: + Funny characters- Too simple and too easy to guess -story+ Nice music, vistas and western atmosphere- too short, little humor and too little action.Its just a bit too short and simplistic. The characters are funny and the humor works, but theres not enough of it. Graham Greene, Callum Rennie and Tyler Mane as Jack the smith don't have enough space for their roles. Paul Gross, in my opinion, doesnt seem too enthusiastic about his role. Sienna Guillory is doing great. Just too short, guessable and the story doesnt have enough to carry the film any longer. I bought this movie on DVD, and the DVD didnt have any extras, merely the film. Could have a bit drama, as it is, it is just a comedy with a few silly moments. Not much of a western either. But quite fun. Its just that theres not much of it..

Steven L (fr) wrote: The reviews are right: Kristin Scott Thomas delivers mightily, propping up this otherwise mediocre movie. The script seemed unrealistic in places, but it still delivers enough drama to keep the audience interested and guessing.

Petros T (es) wrote: "Rush Hour" might be quite unoriginal in both its plot and its characters, but the great thing is that it doesn't matter. And that's because here is a prime example of a buddy-cop movie done right: fast-paced, action-packed and funny as hell. Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker make for an excellent on-screen partnership: they are very enjoyable on their own and on fire whenever they appear together. "Rush Hour" hits its targets with admirable ease.

Timothy S (it) wrote: "Changing Lanes" is a most unusual movie, not quite a thriller although that may be the easiest way to categorize it and there are thrilling elements present within the context of the story. This is more concerned with questions of morality, ethics and doing the right thing, and the end result is an oddly fascinating film with two strong lead performances. Samuel L. Jackson has been good before, and he brings a lot of depth to what could have been a stock character, but the real story here is Ben Affleck. This film represented a career shift for the actor, and although duds would follow before being completely reinvented in Hollywood, this was perhaps only the second time anyone would take him seriously as an actor. The two play off each other marvelously, and it's clear as their war escalates that they both despise the person they have become. They are both essentially good people, forced into this battle of one-upmanship because of their own personal pressures, and both actors illustrate that internal battle with an extraordinary amount of skill. Not content to let that central conflict be the only one here, screenwriter Chap Taylor fleshes out the story by delving into Jackson's troubled family issues and Affleck's moral discussion with his boss and father-in-law. Director Roger Michell deftly juggles all of the plot lines and delivers a rich and deeply satisfying picture. "Changing Lanes" sets out to do something unique and rare, and for the most part, it succeeds. The final act, when the friction is resolved loses some of the film's edge, but until then, it's quite good.
