Why without the volume?

What kind of Rush Hour were you expecting to watch?

Jackie Chan likes the ones with a story - From the Rush Hour 3 Deleted Scenes. :D

Jon Foo's Cantonese sounded horrible. The girl playing his sister was pretty bad too. Hollywood has a knack for ignoring authenticity when it comes to Asians. I know from first-hand experience working on Total Recall. I spoke out to one production assistant and told her the Chinese text on the wall is just random gibberish that makes no sense and she tells me no one's gonna notice. Yeah, except for the first country who gets to see it on the big screen which is in Southeast Asia.

Bugs me to no end!

I agree. I found this extremely racist. I don't know why.
Maybe it's the fact they casted all the Chinese characters with actors that can't actually speak Chinese. If you are not Chinese and you are wondering how bad it is, I am Chinese and I can barely understand what the hell they are saying.

The other thing is the actor that plays Lee. His Chinese is terrible, fine. But why the hell does he have to pretend to speak English with an accent. So he's basically a guy with a problem with languages

Reminds me of that episode of master of none where dev and his friend had to pretend to have Indian accents to get parts despite being fluent in English

The other thing is the lack of originality from the movies. Very unoriginal and predictable but worse than the movie. Turned it off after 30 mins

This show will be cancelled without a doubt

I think I somewhat I will have to take that back. Too corny, terrible acting. Not surprised it will be cancelled.

I can't believe this is still on. I just watched my first episode and couldn't believe they used a Non Asian dude to play Lee (Jackie Chan's character). This reminds me of the injustice Bruce Lee went thru with the tv show Kung Fu. This is almost offensive with the cheap Chinese accent coming from the "non Asian dude" He doesn't look Chinese at all!

I think they're just airing all the leftover episodes.
