    The car chases are unimpeachable.
  2. 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.

    Crucially, the teaming of standup favorite and "Martin" star Lawrence and "Fresh Prince" Smith clicks from the outset, with both right at home handling action and comedy on the bigscreen. Even when it's not particularly funny, their interplay is engaging, and their lively, raucous personalities keep the proceedings punchy and watchable for the slightly overlong running time.

    There's only so far a movie can go on loud music, nicely-framed shots, testosterone, and adrenaline. Bad Boys takes the often-traveled road, and leads the audience to a dead end.
  5. Aside from the racial twist, this is pretty conventional fare, but it's consistently diverting.
  6. Even by the low-low standards of cheap action flicks, this one's bad, boys.
  7. Formulaic sass machine... I was writhing in my seat.

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. Expand

    Bad Boys is a piece of trash. A scum sucking off the brains of the inhabitants of earth.
