Bad boys, bad boys, watcha gonna do, watcha gonna do when they come for you... I'd say beat a hasty retreat, unless you dig racist remarks, blowing up klukkers, sexual comments on corpses, or the 'rhythmic' vibrations of the 'F' word - the king of all four letter words. 'Bad Boys I' made stars out of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. Bad Boys II will ensure they remain stars - on the telly may be.

Now we come to the part where we tell you the story of the film. Well, solving the West Asian crisis is a lot easier than that. At least there you know the reason behind the conflict. I am still zapped as to why this film was made. All you see here are bullets flying all over the place, high-speed car chases, cacophonous shrieks of the two protagonists, and the abysmal failure of the intended humor.


Mike Lowry (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) are two hot shot cops in the Miami Police's Narcotics division. Johnny Tapia (Jordi Molla) is a Cuban drug lord, and their current target. Burnett's sis Sydney Burnett (Gabrielle Union) comes over from the DEA's office in New York, undercover, to apprehend the same guy, unknown to either Burnett or Lowry. Also, unknown to Burnett, Lowry and Sydney are seeing each other, but supposedly out of respect for his partner, Lowry 'does not do anything'. So, you know the usual situations that can arise out of this whole affair.

After about two hours of senseless mayhem, the bad guy manages to take Sydney hostage, and flees to Cuba. The oft repeated line 'United States does not negotiate with terrorists' is stated yet again. But, that is not going to stop our two heroes. They manage to assemble a team and hit Cuba.


What happens next is something we have been trained to expect from our desi Bollywood films starring Sunny baba. These two take on the might of the entire Cuban Army (a la Gadar?) and raze a settlement to ground. Wonder how many people they killed to save the life of one person. But, I guess, they thought, "Hey, they are Cubans!"

The film's direction made me look at the credits twice to convince myself that the director is indeed Michael Bay - the man who gave us Pearl Harbour. No effort has gone in making a fresh theme song, and the same can be said of the film's treatment, too. Some sequences are fast paced, but so fast that you do not even know what is happening or, more importantly, why it is happening.


After about two and a half hours (it is that loooooooog!) when your ordeal finally ends, you wonder whether compared to this Bad Boys I is a classic. But then, there really is no point in wondering, is there? Other than the fact that you could have put those 30 bucks to good use in having a sumptuous Andhra Meal.

The movie as amazing. Indian critics lick. I am an Indian in the US and thankk god I came here when I was only 10 otherwise my minds would be as narow as this critic. Bollywood has not made a better movei than Bad Boys to this day. There scenes are ridiculously fake. Their acting is over the top and if you understood English then you would understand these hilarious jokes. You are an illiterate and narrow minded faggot.

Pros: Amazing. Better than any Bollywood movie
Cons: None. Its great

A cinematic equivalent of toxic waste. If Satan made a movie, this would be it.

Actually, I kinda liked this movie, except for the 'Cuban invasion', which is over-the-top. Movies of this genre are not supposed to make sense anyway. The movie is at times funny and most of the time stylish.
