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

3.0 out of 5 stars Mindless Fun June 19 2004
Format:DVD
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.

Martin Lawrence, (Miles Logan), plays a jewel theif who is arrested by police and returns to the place where he left his jewel only to find that it is a police station after his release from prision.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Martin Lawrence at his best Nov. 29 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Miles Logan, (Martin Lawrence) plays a captured master jewel thief who, realizing inevitable arrest makes a last ditch burying of his loot in a new development. Two years later, out of prison Miles returns to the building only to find a very large problem, the building is complete and now the LAPD headquarters. To retrieve the jewel Miles poses as a hot detective and manages to land a job. Using his criminal expertise to catch the bad guys Miles rises up the ranks. Partnered with Carlson (Luke Wilson) Miles is all the while trying to get at his jewel but seems just not to be able to. He finally does, and by the time he is found out, manages to escape barely across the border to mexico. This movie provides entertaining laughs but is rather dry for much of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars beleive that Oct. 16 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Lawrence is a theif who goes to jail after robbing a place with a diamond in it and his partner kills his other partner because the (...)is greedy and then he places the diamond in a construction building. he gets out and he is free but he quickly finds out that the building he put the diamond in is a new police precinct. so he has to make a new person of himself as a cop and try to get the diamond out. hilarious from the word go, but yet again this one's action seems a little bit flared out too. the best part is when Dave Chappelle has the uzi and Lawrence has to go and get it away from him, he spreads his arms and says belive that and I got this. he walks up to Chappelle and bitchslaps him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie!! May 3 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is a great movie!! In this movie, Miles Logan (Martin Lawrence) is actually a criminal and he wanted to get out of the crime. So he posses as a cop. And then he acts like an actual cop chasing bad guys and when he finds a store robbery that Miles's friend Tulley (David Chappelle) is robbing the store. And it's hard to for Miles to arrest Tulley because he cannot really talk to Tulley otherwise the cops will think they both are criminals. If your bored and don't have anything to do around the house, get this movie and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funniest movie in the world! Martin is HILARIOUS!! April 18 2003
Format:DVD
This is tied in my opinion as one of the 2 best Martin Lawrence movies (the other being "Nothing to Lose"). Martin hides a jewel in a building that is under construction when the police arrive at the robbery. After spending 2 years in jail, he returns to the building to find out that a police station has been built there. This movie is about his hilarious quest to impersonate an officer for the LAPD and try and get his jewel back. Coupled with the hilarious Dave Chappelle, this movie is a must for anyone who enjoys Martin Lawrence, the Chappelle Show, Crank Yankers, or anything else that involves either of these characters. Eddie Murphy's replacement has arrived! If you want comedy, get this movie!!! (Don't bother with National Security, all it's good for is a few great catchlines) Blue Streak also has it's fair share of catchlines like "Belie' Daht"
