Bad Boys [Special Edition] [DVD] [1995]

Release Date:06/27/2000
Bad Boys is an excellent DVD. Framed at 1.85:1, the image is pristine. The disc uses an anamorphic transfer and there are no signs of wear or distracting elements. Colors are clear and bright and the darks are solid with no grain. The sound on this disc is equally impressive. The 5.1 Dolby Digital track is primarily up front in the center, left, and right, but there are plenty of instances where the back surrounds effectively come into use. The disc has a Dolby Digital Surround track in both English and Spanish. Subtitles are available in Chinese, Korean, Thai, Portuguese, English, Spanish, and French. The highlight extra on this disc is an enthusiastic audio commentary track with director Michael Bay. It is filled with insight not only on the making of the film, but how it got started and where he came from. Odd extras on this disc include two "documentaries." The first is a new, behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film that includes the standard interviews, which also contains a lengthy look at the weapons experts that worked on the film. The other documentary is most unusual, a multi-angle analysis of the weapons, what they do, and the damage they can cause. In addition, there are trailers for this film and for Blue Streak. Music videos from Diane King ("Gun Shy"), Warren G. ("So Many Ways"), and 69 Boyz featuring K-Nock ("Five O, Five O"), plus the musical score are on an isolated track. Bios and filmographies for the main cast and crew members of the film are provided. Though far from a masterpiece, Columbia/TriStar has gone all out on this special edition.

    Bad Boys
    Former video director Michael Bay had his first big hit with this action comedy, which also returned producers Jerry Bruckheimer and Don Simpson to the big-budget, high-violence movies that they successfully churned out in the '80s. Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) are two Miami cops who watch as 100 million dollars in heroin, from the biggest drug bust of their careers, is stolen out of the basement of police headquarters. This puts them hot on the trail of French drug lord Fouchet (Tchéky Karyo), who leaves a trail of bodies in his wake and only one witness, Julie Mott (Téa Leoni), who quickly teams up with our heroes. Comic hijinks ensue when plot complications force Mike to impersonate the married Marcus, to the point of moving in with his wife and children, while Marcus takes over Mike's bachelor pad and lifestyle. Car chases, snappy one-liners, and nonstop pacing fuel this umpteenth variation on the cop "buddy" formula. ~ Don Kaye, Rovi
