DIRECTOR: Michael Bay
“What ya gonna do…”
What a surprise, a pleasant one mind, this film was. Michael Bay’s first feature and collaboration with the late Don Simpson and the very much alive Jerry Bruckheimer, I’ve never really been interested in this franchise. But in the effort to complete the Bay cannon, Bad Boys and Bad Boys II are hot on my watch list.
This was funny, sharp and reasonably action packed, a real 90’s blockbuster. This was, by today’s standards, ‘Michael Bay light’, or toned down, with much less action than today, but what was there, was classic, with ridiculous explosions, slow motion and magic hour all day!
Very enjoyable, with good performances all round, even from Martin Lawrence who I’m not fan of. Looking forward to Bay Boys II and have yet to find a Michael Bay film which I actively dislike.
