Bad Boys II

In this explosive sequal Jerry Bruckheimer brough back director Michael Bay and stars Will Smith, Martin Lawrence and Joe Pantoliano.

DVD Review

I was really disappointing they didn't have any commentaries on this dvd. It was made to have a commentary with Michael Bay, Jerry Bruckheimer, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. Even just a commentary with Michael Bay would have been good. Bay had done a commentary on all of his movies up to this one, and I'm still not sure why he didn't do one. The featurettes are all good, their could have been more. The quality of the picture and sound is superb Sony definitely delivered on that.

Plot

Hang on for maximum mayhem, full-on fun and the wildest chase scenes ever put on film! The action and comedy never stop when superstars Martin Lawrence and Will Smith reunite as out-of-control trash-talking buddy cops. Bullets fly, cars crash, and laughs explode as they pusue a whacked-out drug lord from the streets of Miami to the barrios of Cuba. But the real fireworks result when Lawrence discovers that playboy Smith is secretly romancing his sexy sister, Gabrielle Union (Bring it On). Director Michael Bay (Pearl Harbor, Armageddon) and producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Caribbean, Black Hawk Down) deliver a high-speed, high-octane blockbuster that will blow you away.

Best Scene

The car chase scene along the freeway is probably the greatest car chase scene in any film. Seeing that at the cinemas you felt the impact of every car rolling at you. Michael Bay outdid himself in designing and pulling off that incredible scene.

Awards

Taurus Award - Best Stunt Coordination Feature Film
