From director Michael Bay (Transformers) comes a thrill ride of explosive action from beginning to end. One hundred million dollars worth of confiscated drugs has just been jacked from police custody. Once the career bust of Detectives Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence), the missing drugs now threaten to shut down the Narcotics Division of the Miami Police Department. When the drug investigation turns deadly, the murderers kidnap the only witness, a beautiful police informant (Téa Leoni) and close friend of the boys. Experience all of the humor, thrills and action like never before with this 20th anniversary edition – now fully remastered in 4K.
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.

The plot, for what it's worth, concerns a drug dealer (Tchecky Kayro in a virtually nameless role) who slays an idiot member of his gang. Beautiful Julie Mott (Tea Leoni) witnesses the slaying and is marked for death . She calls the cops but for a dumb reason will only talk to Mike Lowrey (Will Smith). Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) is the only person there who can take the call and assumes the role of Mike in order to take Julie into `in-home' protective custody. Why he doesn't just reveal to her right away that he told a little white lie only to get her out of harms way...I dunno. Perhaps it is because it's the only plot element that the legion of writers could abuse to inject the slightest amount of comedy and drag out an 85-minute to 2 hours. It irritates beyond comprehension and the film should really have been dumped in the direct to video bucket instead of having a cinema release. But as long as the film masquerades as a proper Hollywood movie everything will be okay. And it's to Michael Bay's credit that he's managed to pull this off. Without him the movie would be long-forgotten.
A Hollywood movie it certainly is. It took 10 years for Bad Boys to be made and many changes to the script took place in that time. It was originally set in New York and was to star John Lovitz and Dana Carvey as the leads.Read more ›
After their career drug bust is stolen, they a small amount of time to get it back, with no leads. But after Smith's friend is murdered, her best friend who witnesses tries to contact him. it turns out the murderer is one of the men who stole the drugs. Tea Leoni, as the witness, contacts Smith, but gets Martin Lawrence on the phone instead. Afraid of losing her, he pretends he is Will Smith, and the rest of the film is about the 2 men trying to get the drugs back while juggling their identity switch and the trigger-happy witness, looking to avenge her friend's death.
Bad Boys is laugh out loud funny, and the action scenes are some of the best ever. This is a crowd pleaser here. The DVD transfer is equally good, with wonderful sound/picture quality, and a lot of good features.
This is perhaps director Michael Bay's best film. (Armageddon and Pearl Harbor were both wretched.)
An enjoyable film. Better than "Con-Air." On par with "The Rock." Good action. Funny banter and repartee. Although a lot of killing - what would you expect from a Simpson/Bruckheimer production though?
I know --- I've panned American Beauty, Magnolia, The Green Mile, Unbreakable, Wonder Boys, Cider house Rules (what am I forgetting? -- and now I'm lauding this movie? Go figure. It made me laugh. A lot. LMAO is good :)
If you enjoyed "Midnight Run" and or "Planes, Trains & Automobiles," then give this one a try. Or if you like Bad Boys, you may want to look into PlanesTrains&Automobile and Midnight Run. All have a lot of enjoyable banter.
