Brett Ratner hasn’t made a film since 2007, when he finally delivered the belated Rush Hour 3. Whilst he has worked producing TV shows like Prison Break, it’s an overdue return for the second most polarising, A-List director after Michael Bay. He’s clearly a successful director, like Bay, but at the same time you’ll find the internet full of people who curse his name almost as much as Bay’s. He’s paradoxically blamed for ruining X3 and praised for upping the action quotient in the series.

Personally I’ll always be grateful to Ratner for finally managing to get one of my all time heroes, Jackie Chan, into the American mainstream. Whilst the first Rush Hour film may have watered down the genius of Chan’s kinetic imagination, it still afforded Chan a chance to showcase his talents to an audience that (as famous and popular as he was before) he simply had never been able to reach before.

Anyway here we have Stiller and Murphy, two undoubtedly talented, but amazingly hit and miss, comedic actors in a heist movie. They are joined by a number of other notable actors and the film is officially described like so...

After the workers at a luxury Central Park condominium discover the penthouse billionaire has stolen their retirement, they plot the ultimate revenge: a heist to reclaim what he took from them. 

Here we go...
