Um dem FBI zu helfen, seine entführte Tochter wieder zu bekommen, wird Inspektor Lee von seinem Freund Konsul Han aus Hong Kong nach Los Angeles gerufen. Das FBI hat allerdings kein Interesse an ausländischer Hilfe, deshalb soll James Carter, Polizist des LAPD, der kurz vor der Suspendierung steht, ihnen den Asiaten vom Hals halten.

France French (Français)

L'inspecteur Lee est un des fleurons de la police royale de Hong Kong. Sa placidité ne laisse rien soupçonner de son génie des arts martiaux. Âgée de onze ans, la fille du consul de Chine aux États-Unis fut son élève préférée, il en était le garde du corps, il en est resté le meilleur ami. Lorsqu'elle est enlevée par les hommes d'un maître du crime, qui a jadis abattu son coéquipier, Lee saute dans l'avion, bien décidé à retrouver la fillette et à châtier ses ravisseurs.

Rush Hour - Due mine vaganti
  • a.k.a. Rush Hour 1 - Due mine vaganti

Le mani più veloci dell'oriente incontrano la bocca più grande dell'occidente quando il leggendario e intrepido Jackie Chan si accompagna all'intensità comica di Chris Tucker in Rush Hour. Nel film, il detective Ispettore Lee Chan, un agente inflessibile e immerso nel suo lavoro, è l'orgoglio del Regale Corpo di Polizia di Hong Kong e tuttavia il suo atteggiamento modesto non rende l'idea della sua genialità nelle arti marziali. La sua allieva preferita è la figlia undicenne del console Cinese, della quale è sia la guardia del corpo che migliore amico. Il suo compito sarà quello di andare in America e salvarla dal suo rapitore: il genio criminale che ha anche ucciso il partner di Lee.
