Why not just go back and watch 48 HRS instead to see how this sort of film is done right.

Tedious and hackneyed, you would have thought that New Line Cinema could have invested a few more benjamins into getting a workable script before filming commenced.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

They failed to get a consistently funny script or a director capable of effectively staging an action scene.

Director Kevin Bray excels in breaking glass and marking off the "Miami Vice" checklist of power boats, Latin music and dog tracks. He doesn't, however, deliver nearly enough of the show's trademark style and flash.

Plays like a knockoff of Michael Bay's already derivative and much more fun Bad Boys, only with even less plot.

The lead actors share no chemistry or engaging charisma. We don't even like their characters.

Works overtime on expletives and gratuitous violence.

Its generic villains lack any intrigue (other than their funny accents) and the action scenes are poorly delivered.

Ice Cube gives a likeable performance in a terminally lame movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
March 7, 2002
Cinematic junk food...but it's fairly tasty nonetheless--at least by the admittedly undemanding standards of this hackneyed genre.

As violent, profane and exploitative as the most offensive action flick you've ever seen.

The script clumsily jumps between action and comedy, never successfully blending the two.

There's no question that Epps scores once or twice, but it's telling that his funniest moment comes when he falls about ten feet onto his head.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
March 8, 2002
A rather average action film that benefits from several funny moments supplied by Epps.

It keeps your attention mildly engaged. But just that.

Surprisingly mean-spirited, and it's downright nasty in its level of violence.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
March 8, 2002
While it has its amusing moments, the uneven pace, underplotted scripting and over-reliance on improvisation eventually take their combined toll.
March 8, 2002
Filled with low-brow humor, gratuitous violence and a disturbing disregard for life.
