    The car chases are unimpeachable.

    What Bay has really done is slice Beverly Hills Cop in two; Eddie Murphy's sandpaper personality in Lawrence and his silky style in Smith. [7 April 1995, p.7]

    Fans of the stars should be satisfied. Those allergic to car chases, casual killings and the phrase "Oh, s - - -!" may suffer hives. [7 April 1995, p.3D]
  4. With more sophisticated writing, one suspects they could really soar: Even here, slowed by clunky, character-establishing lines and an all-devouring plot, they hit more often than they miss.

    But the bad boys achieve something a budget can't buy: an easy, natural rapport that makes you root for them. For comedy and thrills, Lawrence and Smith are a dream team.

The movie is jamBad Boys is a terrific action movie with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. Michael Bay did a wonderful job on this movie. The movie is jam packed with action and the movie has many jokes. The storyline is clever and the actor that plays the villain is very good. He also plays the corrupt detective in Kiss Of The Dragon. Tea Leoni is also excellent in this movie. She hasn't been in many action movies but she was perfectly cast in this movie. She has many effective and amusing scenes with the other actors. A must see movie for any action fan. Full Review »
