Oh No, Rush Hour 3 Really Gets Banned in China


Oh No, Rush Hour 3 Really Gets Banned in China


Speculations on "Rush Hour 3" receiving ban from China's censorship board are sadly proven true.

Heavy rumors about "Rush Hour 3" getting barred from China's theaters sadly turned out to be a nightmare-comes-true for all fans of Jackie Chan in the country.

Daily Variety has obtained information from China's powerful state-run Film Bureau that permission for the movie's launch on the mainland had been withheld for commercial reason, which the entertainment paper perceived as 'a surprising justification' if looking on the box office successes the previous two installments made in China.

"We think it will not be popular in China," said Xiao Ping, a VP at China Film Group's import and export arm.

Words had it before that the ban might be due to the flick's scene that features a Chinese organized crime family that Chan and Chris Tucker's characters take on during a visit to Paris. Such depiction is said to not please China since the issue of organized crime is politically sensitive as greater economic openness has been accompanied by the emergence of triad-style gangs in big cities.
