Product Description

Amazon.ca

A cheerfully over-the-top action film, Bad Boys is notable chiefly for the rapport between its two stars, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, as two Miami cops on the trail of a drug kingpin as they try to protect a witness (Tea Leoni). Smith is the swinging bachelor and Lawrence the family man, and both must juggle their personal lives as they baby-sit the one chance they have to recover a stolen drug shipment, save their jobs, and take down the drug dealer. While the film is almost always implausible and its story is something seen many times before, director Michael Bay (The Rock) keeps things moving stylishly and at a feverish pace, as Smith and Lawrence prove themselves a terrific comic pairing. Their odd couple banter flies at a faster clip than the bullets and explosions, and becomes the best reason to see this hyperbolic but entertaining action flick. --Robert Lane --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Bad Boys is yet another action comedy that follows 48 HOURS & the BEVERLY HILLS COP mode. The viloence is a non-stop fury from start to finnish and the profanity that anyone comes to expect films of this nature. This film benefits greatly from Will Smith and Martin Laurence`s chemsitry, as long as they`re on screen together things move along but when they`re apart the film ends losing crediabillty. The film is two hours or so long has more complications it needs.The storyline surounds the theft of millons of dollars worth of drugs confiscated from a Miami Police warehouse by an evil french crimminal named Fouchet, sounds more like a name for expensive french chocalate than a French crimminal, played awful by Tchelky Karyo. BAD BOYS doesn`t stay focused halfway it comes up with what somebody must have thought was a brilliant move and proceeds to beat it to death for reasons not worth mentioning are forced to switch identies. So the ladies man Mike(Smith) moves in with his partner`s family while Marcus(Laurence)spends day & night at Mike`s place guarding a material witness an attractive annyoning woman(Tea Leoni) From this point its a mix-match of endless guns blazing foul language and the same style of film i`ve seen endless times before.

Featuring Martin Lawrence, Will Smith and Tea Leoni, David (X-FILES) Duchovony's spouse, BAD BOYS manages somehow to be equal parts parody and tribute to MIAMI VICE, the 80's NBC "MTV cops" show. In some ways it goes its TV counterpart even better: Leoni is a much stronger female character than Gina and Trudy, VICE's lady cops, ever were allowed to be; and the two cops are both African-American (a rarity in what Spike Lee rightly called the racist "Hollywood Plantation"). There's even a reference to VICE: the surname of Lawrence's characther is Burnett, which was Sonny Crockett's undercover alias. However, there are some differences: you don't see the uber-modern drug-lord's houses and apartments you saw on VICE---intstead it focuses on South Beach with its Art Deco buildings and the hideout of the villians is in a burnt out hangar. All in all, an interesting 90's update of VICE.

This movie has it all! From the very beginning to end, you are immersed into the atmosphere this movie creates. The director, Michael Bay, has always been known to do a great job in directing action movies, but this one is the best he's ever done! This movie is very stylish, in the music, scene transitions, acting, and everything else about it. Even the music at the title screens gets you pumped and ready for anything in this movie, and the great music throughought the movie, by Mark Mancina, which also composed the awesome music to Speed. This movie is great, and I even own two copies of it, TV screen format, and widescreen format. By far, my favorite movie, and I'm sure will be yours too.

All that I can say about this movie is "Wow." I have seen this movie several times and has earned the number one spot in my favorite list of movies. The special effects and camera views for 1995 are immaculate. Especially during the last scene where the car chase was taking place. The camera view that sticks in my minds is where is shows the tire spinning, and you hear the outrageously loud whine of the engine, which compares to the beginning where Mike Lowry was driving the car right before they got jacked. This all out great movie will definetly not stay laying on the shelf, it will constantly be played guarunteed. Joey

By the mid-nineties, the buddy cop action flick was not a new idea. Starting with 48 Hours and continuing with movies like Beverly Hills Cop and Lethal Weapon, the "cat and dog in a barrel" concept had been fairly played out. However, in 1995, a new director and some rising stars teamed up with the movie veterans behind Top Gun to create a new breed of action movie.
In Bad Boys, wild card narcotics officers Marcus (Martin Lawrence) and Mike (Will Smith) are in a bind. Their career dope bust has just been robbed from the station, and their only hope of finding it is the witness to a murder. However, circumstances get complicated when the two are forced to switch roles, and family man Marcus has to become swinging bachelor Mike for 72 hours.
The plot of the movie is fairly weak, centering around the drug bust and the cops' efforts to protect the witness, find the dope, and (shock and awe) keep Internal Affairs off their backs. However, the plot is not the reason to see the movie. For the reason, just look to the stars.
The same spirit of banter and hen-pecking that made the Lethal Weapon series so enjoyable is given a fresh coat of paint, and a couple of fresh voices. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence snap, crackle, and explode on screen, whether their shooting the bad guys or just firing pot shots at each other. While Lethal Weapon showed us the friction between a fresh pair of partners, Bad Boys shows us two cops who have been together six years, and know just how to get on each other's nerves.
But even with the snappy humor that Lawrence and Smith bring to the screen, the movie rides on wheels of action. Micheal Bay has become synonymous with action movies, and Bad Boys is the reason why.
