Detective Inspector Lee (Jackie Chan - Rumble in the Bronx) is the pride of the Royal Hong Kong Police, a tough, respected cop who works alone. Detective James Carter (Chris Tucker - The Fifth Element) is the LAPD's worst nightmare: a cocky loud-mouthed officer who's gone through more partners than Elizabeth Taylor. Now the two are being thrown together following the kidnapping of the Chinese consul's daughter. Each wants to solve the case on their own while the FBI just wants them to disappear. But with Lee, the fastest hands in the East and Carter, the biggest mouth in the West, that isn't going to be easy. They're out to rock the streets of L.A. with classic Kung Fu action and some 90's Homeboy attitude - and the combination is better than any Lethal Weapon seen before!
