Product Description

CIA agents Gaylord Oakes (Anthony Hopkins) and Kevin Pope (Chris Rock) are working undercover in Prague, attempting to infiltrate a gang of black market arms dealers and prevent a nuclear bomb from being detonated on US soil. When Kevin is killed by a gang of rival criminals, the agency tracks down his identical brother Jake (Rock again) and, in order to complete the mission, hires him to replace Kevin. But after only three days of training, will Jake be ready to take on a gang of international criminals, many of whom are eager to see him dead? And, more to the point, how will veteran agent Oakes cope with his new motor-mouthed sidekick?

From Amazon.co.uk

A preposterous espionage thriller starring the unlikely pairing of Chris Rock and Anthony Hopkins, Bad Company is a prime example of brash, mainstream filmmaking. The plot premise says it all: with its separated identical twins, Russian terrorists, stolen nuclear weapons and high-tech gadgetry, it's an attempt to tie up elements of Lethal Weapon, Bond and The Matrix in one semi-coherent whole, although director Joel Shumacher never really pulls it off. The main fault lies with the relationship between Hopkins and Rock--the former looking increasingly uncomfortable in leather jacket and baseball cap. Rock, meanwhile, has the potential to be a fine actor (demonstrated by his fine turn in the Dogma) but is given very little to work with here aside from a weak, Eddie Murphy-style comedy stereotype. Despite all its shortcomings, however, Bad Company manages to build up to a fairly diverting, reasonably exciting conclusion.

On the DVD: Bad Company's DVD release is totally in keeping with the film itself: brash and showy, certainly, but lacking in real content. The gadgets, guns, explosions and chases all come up well in the digital format, as does the extensive use of the breathtaking Prague backdrop to the action. There are virtually no extras, however, with the package limited purely to a behind-the-scenes feature where everybody involved maintains what a great piece of work this film is, how wonderful the rest of the cast were and how much fun they had making it. --Phil Udell

I wasn't sure what to expect from this film. I thought it would probably be quite silly and predictable, but I was pleasantly surprised.
I didn't get the irritating "why are they doing that" feeling, which made this film very watchable. I wouldn't call it a comedy but I suppose it depends on your sense of humour but there are some amusing bits. I enjoyed the car chase after they get the bomb.
I expected there to be some extras such as out-takes on the DVD but there is only a short documentary. Again watchable, but its more of a chance for the actors and director to praise each other rather than enhance the film.
There is a brief bit in the documentary when they hint at a relationship between Hopkins character and the female on the team ..can't remember her name now. I don’t see this element at all in the film, and don't know why they bother to mention it, this isn't really relevant but that’s just my opinion.
It’s the kind of film that once you have seen it you probably wouldn't watch it again for a very long time, so I'd borrow it rather than buy it. But over all not a bad film at all, and I quite enjoyed my evening watching it.

I found Chris Rock to be really good in this. As well as the wisecracks he was given some space to show a little charm, something many others in his position just couldn't pull off. The espionage tale is engaging enough and Hopkins is watchable although at one point they dress him in a baseball cap and jeans complete with sunglasses and a toothpick which is laughable more than casual! Despite the wambam premise of a sibling taking his dead brothers place in the CIA so a mission can go ahead the script is actually fairly subtle and Rock effortlessly slips in the one liners when his character or the situation warrants it. Critics hated it which is always a good sign in my book.

This film is not only easy to watch and understand but also very funny!
It tells the story of Gaylord who is contacted by the CIA to help them with a mission for 9 days that his identical twin was working on before he got killed. Before he can get over the shock that he had a twin he has to decide weather to help then or not! Its a great film with some funny twists! Brilliant acting by Anthony Hopkins.

I have seen lots of bad reviews for this film, but we enjoyed it. Hokins and Rock make a humorous pair. If you look beyond the average plot you will find a good way to spend an evening. This is a movie I wouldn't mind seeing again and a sequel would be a hoot.

Dr. Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter and that extremely annoying guy from Lethal Weapon 4 make for an intriguing double act. What this film lacks in orange fireballs it makes up for with some genuinely exciting action.

This is an excellent film to watch if you need something distracting, full-on and funny. Chris Rock is always funny, although maybe not 100% on the money when it comes to being convincing as two different people. But then there's Anthony Hopkins, doing his usual slightly theatrical intense character thing he always does. But it's brilliantly entertaining nonetheless. And there's plenty of lovely views of the beautiful city of Prague as well as great one-liners such as 'Get in the car, bitch' which is only funny coming awkwardly from the mouth of Anthony Hopkins. There's also the classic, 'You better act right or you'll get smacked right!' from Chris Rock. Riveting and laugh out-loud stuff.

The plot may be fairly generic, but the film is very entertaining. The best part of the film is Chris Rock's hilarious lead performance, lifting it above average. The idea is simple, but effective. Recommended
