Product Description

National Security
Although it's enjoyable as a brainless diversion, National Security is one of those forgettable entertainments that denies its own considerable potential. It's a police action comedy in the mold of Beverly Hills Cop, tailored to the buddy-flick formula and laced with racial tensions of the post-Rodney King era. It's set in Los Angeles, where dedicated cop Hank (Steve Zahn) does jail time for allegedly beating Earl (Martin Lawrence), whose only real assailant was an overzealous bumblebee. As fate and lazy screenwriting would have it, the two adversaries reunite as security guards, teaming up to crack a team of violent smugglers led by bleached-blonde Eric Roberts (further proof that this movie's got nothing new to offer). Routine stunts distract from the comedy's mostly untapped resource: Lawrence pointedly riffs on racial profiling, and his prolific ad-libs play well against Zahn's by-the-book straight man. If their partnership had been allowed to develop more believably, National Security might have been more than a blip on the box-office radar. --Jeff Shannon

Money Train
This attempt to reunite the stars of White Men Can't Jump will most likely be remembered as the movie that allegedly inspired a number of copycat arsons in the New York subway system. In other words, the movie itself is too perfunctory to be remembered for any other reason. Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes share their established chemistry as a pair of stepbrothers who work the subway detail as undercover detectives in the NYPD. Woody's a compulsive gambler with a huge debt problem to contend with, and he's also competing with his brother for the attentions of their new and beautiful partner (Jennifer Lopez), who's been assigned to join their investigation of the subway crimes. They're also supposed to guard the daily money train (so named because it contains each day's worth of subway fares), but Woody gets the bright idea that it might be the solution to his money woes. What follows is standard-issue action fare for the mid-1990s--lots of violence, excessive profanity, and attempts at witty banter between the costars to make it all seem more entertaining than it really is. You'd need to be a serious Harrelson, Snipes, or Lopez fan to add this movie to your collection. For anyone else, one viewing ought to be enough. --Jeff Shannon

Blue Streak
Martin Lawrence can certainly talk a blue streak (witness his concert film, You So Crazy), but he tones it down to PG-13 for this by-the-book action comedy. Lawrence stars as Logan, a bank robber and jewel thief (nice role model we're supposed to cheer for) who, just before he is arrested, manages to stash the $20 million diamond he has just heisted at a construction site. When he is released from prison two years later, he returns to the scene of the crime only to find that the completed building houses a police station. To get inside and retrieve the precious gem he secures a fake ID and passes himself off as LAPD's newest, and most unorthodox, detective. As he demonstrated on his TV series, Lawrence has a knack for characterization second to Eddie Murphy. But he's no Beverly Hills Cop. Indulgent sequences where Martin has seemingly been given free reign to ad-lib are the film's weakest. Early on, Logan cases the police station outlandishly disguised as a snaggle-toothed, Geri-curled pizza deliveryman. You'd think the last thing his character would want to do is call attention to himself. Lawrence is at his best in the scenes in which, thanks to all those years of breaking and entering, his formerly lawless character proves to be a natural at cracking burglary cases. Logan is paired with the requisite white partner, Carlson (Luke Wilson), a buttoned-up rookie. Departing from the Lethal Weapon, buddy-movie playbook, they are not antagonists; theirs is more a teacher-mentor relationship. "Don't we need a warrant to do that?" Carlson asks Logan at one point. "We don't even need a key," Logan responds, picking a lock. There is little in Blue that is remotely fresh, but Lawrence fans, who watched him play it straight opposite Murphy in Life, will relish the opportunity to see him get down with his bad self. --Donald Liebenson

Blue Streak [1999] [Blu-ray] [US Import] HE’S A COP THAT’S NOT!

Master jewel thief Miles Logan [Martin Lawrence] [‘Life’ and ‘Bad Boys’] has a big problem, a $20 million dollar problem. Recently released from prison for the botched heist of a huge diamond, he's anxious to retrieve the hot rock which he hid at a construction site two years earlier.

Unfortunately, his hiding place is now at the centre of a recently completed high-security police precinct. Posing as a detective, and partnered with straight laced rookie Carlson [Luke Wilson] [of ‘Home Fries’ and ‘Bottle Rocket’], Miles Logan utilises his criminal expertise and inadvertently rises up the ranks, winning the respect of his fellow "boys in blue."

Powered by a hot soundtrack with music by Jay-Z, Foxy Brown and Tyrese featuring Heavy D, BLUE STREAK is a hilarious action-comedy from director Les Mayfield [‘Flubber’ and ‘Encino Man’].

Cast: Martin Lawrence, Luke Wilson, Dave Chappelle, Peter Greene, Nicole Parker, William Forsythe, Graham Beckel, Robert Miranda, Olek Krupa, Saverio Guerra, Richard C. Sarafian, Tamala Jones, Julio Oscar Mechoso, Steve Rankin, Carmen Argenziano and John Hawkes

In one of the few movies where Martin Lawrence's humor doesn't become seriously racist and xenophobic he plays Miles Logan, a jewel thief, after a $20 million diamond. But one of his team betrays him (Peter Greene, once again playing a bad guy) and they're plan is thrown all out of whack. After hastily stashing the diamond in a nearby construction site he is soon arrested sent away for 2 years.
Upon release he heads back to the construction site only to find it's turned into a police station. No luck getting back in unless you're a cop then. A series of disguises fail and Logan ends up impersonating a cop in order to get to the diamond. But he's so good at the impersonation that police duty gets in the way and he's partnered with Carlson (Luke Wilson).
Mild plot complications ensue and it becomes increasingly difficult for Logan to get to the diamond. Though the trouble really starts when Deacon (Peter Greene) comes back to get him.
It's all brainless stuff but it makes for enjoyably silly viewing. Lawrence's improv isn't all that funny but the rest of his performance is strangely tolerable. Wilson isn't his usual self in the wimpy cop role but it's weird watching him pronounce 'real OLD SCHOOL' 4 years before said movie was released. And Dave Chappelle is hilarious Tulley, the amateur liquor store robber.
There was supposed to be a sequel but plans for it fell through. It would have been a hundred times better than the awful Bad Boys sequel regardless of script quality.
The DVD is in bright, clean 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen with a lively Dolby 5.1 soundtrack. There are some extras but nothing groundbreaking.

I don't care what you say, Martin Lawrence is just damn hilarious! Blue Streak is another example of why we keep coming back for more of Martin - and regardless of what other's say, the Pizza guy in the beginning of the movie was one of the funniest scenes in the whole flick!
The only disappointment for me was the ending of this movie... it was a bit of a let-down. But I'll still watch this movie a million times, because it's classic Martin Lawrence.
Take this movie for what it is: COMEDY! Martin is a funny man that does great characters, and really, that's what this movie adds up to. No one can deliver like he does. Does it matter that he plays similar characters in most of his movies? Does it matter than much of the play and plots are the same? Does it matter that his delivery is pretty predictable? HECK NO! Because each time, no matter how many times you've seen him do it, Martin is hilarious - PERIOD.
I searched for this movie all over, and finally had to order it on-line because it's not available to buy anymore. I'll watch it over and over, because with Martin Lawrence, that's what you do.

Martin Lawrence seems to play a cop or other law-enforcement-type who�s on the side of right and wrong simultaneously in most of his movies. Check out this, Bad Boys, Big Momma�s House, or National Security (the previews of that aren�t even funny) to see what I mean. And the plot of this movie is kind of complicated. Martin plays Miles Logan, a bank robber who left some of his loot in a securely-guarded office building, and he somehow gets recruited by the FBI or CIA by giving the impression that he�s clean and that he just wants to recover the loot. He is then given a partner, and the two of them go through a string of wild adventures trying to get the loot because some of Miles� thuggish friends get their hands on it.
This movie wasn�t a complete waste of time or anything. I thought it was funny when some hoodlums confront Miles and his partner, and Miles denies being authoritative. The thugs don�t believe him, so they tell him to shoot his supposed partner, and he says �No problem� and then easily shoots him in the shoulder. But I think the end of the movie was weird. You�ll have to see it to understand what I mean.
But next time, Martin, see if you can get a script that has you playing a different character. But then again, that�s what happened with Black Knight. (*sigh*)
