escola sede: "Take a Minute, Take Five!"

 Mais uma sugestão, desta feita de Tiago Ferreira, 9º. G, , na subcategoria "Fun corner / Chill out time".

                                                                                      Film: Rush Hour

"Rush Hour" is a 1998 American martial arts action-comedy film directed by Brett Ratner and starring Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker as Inspector Lee and Detective Carter, respectively. The franchise's next success led to it securing two sequels, Rush Hour 2 and Rush Hour 3.

There are 2 main characters: Detective Inspector Lee (Jackie Chan): Lee is a skilled Hong Kong police officer known for his martial arts skills. He is sent to Los Angeles to help solve a case and ends up becoming one of the series' protagonists. Detective James Carter (Chris Tucker): Carter is a Los Angeles police detective who is initially not very happy with the idea of having to work with Lee. However, throughout the series, the two end up becoming partners and friends.

Plot of the film: A Chinese diplomat's daughter is kidnapped in Los Angeles and the consul calls Inspector Lee in Hong Kong to help the FBI with the case. The American agency doesn't care about Lee and leaves him aside at the Los Angeles Police Department, asking Detective James Carter to keep an eye on him. Although Lee and Carter can't stand each other, they decide to work together to solve the case alone when they discover they have been abandoned by the FBI and the police. They discover that the diplomat's daughter was kidnapped by the same man Lee chased at the beginning of the film (Juntão). Lee and Carter try to uncover clues about the child's kidnapping, but Carter was not as focused on the kidnapping as Detective Lee.
