This movies tops "Bullet" when it comes to car chase scenes.

These two make a good cop team filled with laughs and action.

"What mere could you possibly want?" Maybe a story, decent acting, good writing, some semblance of a visual style, commentary on police violence. . .Although, to be honest, I'm not sure if this is the dumbest action movie ever made or the smartest. An endless series of shoot outs, car crashes, explosions, and unfunny jokes, it hits virtually every action cliche and perhaps invents some new ones, like invading Cuba to rescue a woman. It's also nearly 2.5 hours. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence don't so much act as bark one liners, all of which land like lead balloons. I did like when Henry Rollins showed up for like 5 seconds.

So the question "Whatcha gonna do when they come for you?" is never actually answered by this movie. And despite the title, it has nothing to do with the show "Cops," but it is about cops. This buddy cop action comedy launched Will Smith into the stratosphere, but didn't really do the same for Martin Lawrence. Even by the standards of dumb action movies, this is pretty dumb. The writing is just cliches strung together, the plot is an excuse for gun fights and explosions, the acting mediocre. Are they bad meaning good? Or are they bad actors? Or is this a movie for boys with bad taste? It is the first movie for director. Michael Bay, who is critically reviled, but enormously successful for catering to the lowest common denominator. "The Rock" is the only of his movies I can stand. You probably have to see "Bad Boys II" to really understand the whole story.

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence make for a pretty good duo in this movie, and while I believe it could have been better it is still a decent movie. And it is Michael Bay's directorial debut, well full length feature anyways. I would recommend this to fans of action and buddy cop type movies.

Will Smith was great in this movie. The car chase in the end was wild.

Mike Lowrey: Hello?
Marcus Burnett: We're your new neighbors.
Mike Lowrey: Don't be alarmed, we're negros.
Marcus Burnett: Naw man, naw. There's too much bass in your voice. That scares white folks. You got to sound like them.
