Plot Summary: Hong Kong Police Chief Inspector Lee’s (Jackie Chan) latest assignment is to escort and protect Chinese Ambassador Han as he delivers a major address before the World Criminal Court Summit in Los Angeles. In his speech, Han is expected to reveal important findings on the world’s biggest crime syndicate, the Chinese Triads. While delivering his address, however, he is shot and nearly killed. Meanwhile, former LAPD Detective James Carter (Chris Tucker), who has recently been demoted to a far less flattering position of a traffic cop, just happens to be listening in on the radio when the tragedy occurs. He rushes to the scene of the crime to help, but instead interferes with Lee’s pursuit of the culprits. Determined to reclaim his Detective status, he teams up with Lee once again to help track down the assassins. With the trail leading the duo on a chase to Paris, France, both will find themselves in unfamiliar territory. With the infamous city also chosen as the site of the next World Criminal Court Summit and additional lives at stake, the two will be forced to battle the French police, the Triads, and the foreign culture if they are going to solve the mystery in time.
