A boom 'n' bang boxset of BAD BOYS 1 and 2:
BAD BOYS: Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) is a happily married family man. Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) is a smooth-talking, freewheeling bachelor. Both are cops in the narcotics division of the Miami police department. When £100 million dollars worth of seized heroin is stolen from their police station, the mismatched duo are forced to switch identities to placate the only witness (Tea Leoni) who can lead them to the drug lord responsible and save their jobs before the FBI closes them down. This explosion-heavy, chase-filled, gun-smoking action comedy is directed by Michael Bay (ARMAGEDDON, PEARL HARBOR) and showcases comedic odd-couple-style bantering between the aptly paired Smith and Lawrence.
BAD BOYS 2: Burnett and Lowrey return as partners on the Miami Tactical Narcotics Team in director Michael Bay's sequel to BAD BOYS. Car chases and shoot outs are daily occurences as the two try to track down a big time Ecstasy dealer. The trail leads to Johnny Tapia (Jordi Molla) a Cuban immigrant who runs the biggest drug cartel on the East Coast. The stakes are raised when Marcus discovers that his sister, Syd (Gabrielle Union), an agent for the Drug Enforcement Agency, is working undercover trying to bust Tapia as well. And to further complicate matters, Syd and Mike have become involved romantically and are keeping it a secret from Marcus. Jam-packed with massive explosions, wild chase scenes, and flying bullets, this wild ride is filled with action and violence. Smith is charming as the quick-tempered, fast-talking Mike, and Lawrence is his ideal counterpart as the stressed-out Marcus, who resorts to therapy tricks to keep calm. Joe Pantoliano reprises his role as Captain Howard, who is livid about the trail of wrecked cars and damage his boys leave behind them.
