Will Smith and Martin Lawrence team up for a buddy cop movie that’s been done a thousand times before yet it still manages to mildly entertain.Two cops get fucked over when a heroin shipment gets stolen from the police vault by Tcheky Karyo, using his evil smirk to the highest degree. After murdering a girl and a snitch that happens to be Smith’s friend and actually knew about the raid, another girl, Tea Leoni, watches it all unfold and gets protection from Smith and Lawrence while they both race against time to recover the stolen heroin.
Brought to you by hack filmmaker Michael Bay, but this film was actually done back then when he didn’t actually truly suck. The guy has a quite an eye for action flicks but that’s it, he's only given us an MTV style look of how to shoot an action scene. Otherwise I’d say that the guy can’t even direct traffic.
Here, the movie is all just full of flashy action sequences, especially the rabbit chase and the hangar shootout. It also contains a paper-thin plot so predictable I could recite it in my sleep, and since Smith and Lawrence are all comedians in their own right the obligated list of comedic moments and gags come along, especially the stupid one in which they try to pass of as the other when it comes to the witness, Leoni. Leoni has admitted that she doesn’t have any tits and ass; well, she sure does in this film. She’s quite sexy for a girl that “doesn’t have T&A” even though she can’t act that well. David Duchovny, you’re a lucky bastard.What is there to say about this film that hasn’t been said? Hell it’s been done before, even a hundred times better. It’s a spur-of-the-moment film and a passable rental. See it if you feel like wasting 2 hours of your time, it will somewhat entertain you with a little ooh and aah, but don’t expect any more than that. 2.5-5
