    From the swooping aerial shots of downtown Miami, to the long, long-legged beauties that seem to crop up every time the action threatens to slow down, to the nonsensical lack of logic that permeates the film like the acrid odor of wasted cordite, Bad Boys oozes Eighties Hollywood clichés like no film since "Top Gun."
  2. Even by the low-low standards of cheap action flicks, this one's bad, boys.
  3. 30
    Relentless formulaic fodder for the explosion-starved; it's loud, shallow, sexist and a complete waste of time.
  4. Formulaic sass machine... I was writhing in my seat.

    Bad Boys has intense action and the story is engrossing, a good mix of laughs as well.
