Bad Boys Blu-Ray Review

Bad Boys Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: From director Michael Bay (The Rock, Armageddon) and the production team of Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer (Beverly Hills Cop, Top Gun) comes a thrill ride of explosive action from beginning to end. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence team up as partners in crime, crime-fighting that is, in this action-packed flick about a couple of good guys who are real BAD BOYS! One hundred million dollars worth of confiscated heroin has just been jacked from police custody. Once the career bust of Detective Mike Lowery (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence), the missing drugs now threaten to shutdown the narcotics division of the Miami Police Department. When the drug investigation turns deadly, the murderers kidnap the only witness, a beautful police informant (Tea Leoni) and close friend of the boys, which makes things get personal! Fast cars, a gorgeous woman and non-stop action make BAD BOYS a guaranteed good time!

Review: The phenomenon that is Bad Boys began back in the mid 1990s.  The film is essentially a buddy flick that pairs two of the biggest actors of the era, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.  They are, of course, cops and they are battling...guess what?  Drug dealers.  Its a cliche format done time and again, but what changes here is the two dynamic actors.  The budget it big and the actors are great quality, so finally it works!  This film is a great precursor to films like Rush Hour.

This new blu-ray release is the first time we get Bad Boys in high definition.  The resolution actually looks pretty damn good, too!  I was happy to get this good quality film for our blu-ray collection.  Its a great release and an enjoyable film.  Now, all we need is for them to release Bad Boys 2 on blu-ray!

Interest Range: Action / Adventure, Buddy Flick, Will Smith
