Introduction: Why we need to talk about Hillary Clinton’s character in the new Rush Hour movie?
The recent release of the film, 21 Jump Street, has been met with mixed reactions- mainly because it is a remake of the popular 1980s TV show. Before watching it, many people had very strong opinions about whose portrayal would be more accurate. Some are ecstatic to see Johnny Depp play Officer Jenko in this updated version and think that he did an amazing job of capturing the original character. Many other people, however, were disappointed with the lack of a believable portrayal and called it plain “ridiculous.”
We need to be asking ourselves why the remake of this classic show didn’t meet our expectations. Why weren’t we satisfied with the product? The answer is clearly evident. With the original Rush Hour, we see a perfect example of how a remake should be done. This movie was a huge hit both critically and commercially and was even nominated for an Academy Award, so it is clear that their writers knew what they were doing. What can we learn from their work so that we can make better and more accurate remakes in the future?
When making a remake, there are many things to consider. Here are some of the most important elements that need to be considered.
The First Choice: What Film Should We Remake?
Detailed Analysis of the Rush Hour and 21 Jump Street Characters’ Similarities
One of the main issues surrounding the movie is that people believe that it was unrealistic. However, while 21 Jump Street may not have been completely accurate to the original characters and story, it still featured strong characters who felt like they could be real. The comic relief of the film was another major aspect of the movie. While Jenko and Schmidt may not have been exactly like their TV counterparts, they were still funny, which made them more relatable because they felt like real people- especially given their wacky personalities. There were also questions of why they didn’t have a romantic interest. Jenko is portrayed as a devoted father to his son at the beginning of the plot and there are even clues later on in the film that suggest that Schmidt may be gay. Perhaps this explains why no one has a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship with Schmidt or Jenko/Jenko. Another thing about both films is that 21 Jump Street and Rush Hour are definitely fictional works, which makes them both relatable for viewers who don’t want their current perceptions of life influenced by certain issues. This makes the viewer focus more on the issue of friendship and the bromance that occurs throughout both films- because people everywhere can relate to this. While they may not be cops or detectives, in reality, they still portray similar characteristics that makes them both appealing.
Rush Hour is a Great Addition to the Franchise
Many people have been quick to criticize 21 Jump Street. However, there is actually a lot of backstory to the movie that not many critics realized. One of the main ideas behind Rush Hour was that it would be a franchise that would continue on with different main characters. The first film wins over viewers who never saw the old TV series by introducing a somewhat new version of the characters. In fact, there is a hint of this in the first film when Chris Tucker’s character, Detective James Carter, says to the main character, Detective Lee: “I had to cancel our reservation at that Chinese restaurant across from your hotel because they said they haven’t seen you in months.” This shows the audience that Lee hasn’t been in his life in a while and they need to bring him back.
This idea was carried on in the second installment in the franchise, Rush Hour 2. The movie starts with Carter receiving a call from Lee telling him that he has been kidnapped and needs help immediately. Carter rushes to his aid as fast as he can, but is too late, Lee has already been rescued by his old partner from Hong Kong who happens to be named Inspector Wah. Carter tries his best to get out of the film alive, but is shot in the process. Luckily, Carter was able to survive and be saved by a new partner named Detective Carter.
Conclusion: Why You Need to Go See the New Trump Rush Hour Movie
After watching both films, there are a lot of similarities between the characters. Although 21 Jump Street was an American remake of a British TV show, it still offers a lot of applicable content to viewers. It is about making good decisions that will ultimately affect you for good- whether it be in school or the work field. There are several important themes throughout the film: how to develop good decision making skills, how to keep on going when things might seem bleak and how to stay positive when everything seems wrong. Rush Hour, on the other hand, took a completely different form of entertainment to address these issues. Although it is not a documentary and is just fictional, the movie still offers good messages that everyone can learn from by watching. Overall Rush Hour was very engaging and full of a lot of action- perfect for anyone who’s looking for any type of action film. However, 21 Jump Street had more substance to it. It was still very enjoyable and entertaining but also gave a lot of good life lessons that the characters used to solve their problems-much like the theme of breaking stereotypes. This is why you should go see the new Trump Rush Hour movie!
