Having not seen a lot of Martin Lawrence previous to his role in Bad Boys I was a little dubious about how this DVD purchase may turn out, I shouldn't have worried. Lawrence is both original and funny and has you laughing out loud from start to finish, proving that his successful partnership in Bad Boys didn't rely on Will Smith alone. Comedy and action rolled into one, this film is well worth the money. And yes, you do find yourself quoting lines from it afterwards!

Lets be under no illusions here, if Martin Lawrence gets on your nerves then it's very safe to suggest one stays away from this piece. His brand of comedy ranges from the pratfall antics of Jerry Lewis to the more vibrant delivery of someone like Richard Pryor, yet asking him to carry a movie on his own is still risky at best. He has achieved a level of success by having the knack to raise a laugh out of the most moronic of situations, and here in Blue Streak he milks it for all he is worth, and I personally find the film a good cure for the blues.

Miles Logan (Lawrence) gets caught post a diamond robbery, luckily for him he has hidden the diamond in an air vent at a building that is under construction, unluckily for him tho, is that when he gets out of prison two years later, he finds that the building under construction is now a police station! This sets us up for the splendid plot of criminal wise cracker Logan having to fake being a police officer to hopefully get his hands back on the diamond! Naturally things don't go to plan and things steadily spiral out of control.

The film is fun, it doesn't have an overlong running time, so with that the viewer doesn't feel a sense of too much Lawrence overacting, some solid support from Luke Wilson & William Forsythe adds to the merriment, and the action junkies are suitably catered for as well, so all in all a very solid 6.5/10 from me.

BLUE STREAK [1999] [Blu-ray] [US Release] He's A Cop That's Not! Two Thumbs Up!

Master jewel thief Miles Logan [Martin Lawrence] of films ‘Life' and ‘Bad Boys,' has a big problem, a $20 million dollar problem. Recently released from prison for the botched heist of a huge diamond, he's anxious to retrieve the hot rock which he hid at a construction site two years earlier.

Unfortunately, his hiding place is now at the centre of a recently completed high-security police precinct. Posing as a detective and partnered with straight laced rookie Carlson [Luke Wilson] of `Home Fries' and `Bottle Rocket,' Miles Logan utilises his criminal expertise and inadvertently rises up the ranks, winning the respect of his fellow "boys in blue."

Powered by a hot soundtrack with music by Jay-Z, Foxy Brown and Tyrese featuring Heavy D, 'Blue Streak' is a hilarious action-comedy from director Les Mayfield of `Flubber' and `Encino Man.'

Cast: Martin Lawrence, Luke Wilson, Peter Greene, Dave Chappelle, Nicole Ari Parker, Graham Beckel, Robert Miranda, Olek Krupa, Saverio Guerra, Richard C. Sarafian, Tamala Jones, Julio Oscar Mechoso, Steve Rankin, Carmen Argenziano, John Hawkes, Frank Medrano, William Forsythe, Octavia Spencer, Timothy Dale Agee, Timothy Dale Agee, Scott Sowers, Christopher Stapleton, Googy Gress, Robert LaSardo, Bill Ferrell, Billy 'Sly' Williams, Eidan Hanzei, James W.

Miles Logan (Lawrence) is a jewel thief, who stashes a $17 million diamond in a construction site when a heist goes awry. Released from jail 2 years later, he goes back only to find the site has been turned into a Police precinct. The only way in, is in handcuffs or as a cop, so he poses as a fake L.A.P.D Detective Malone, to get his jewel back. However it's not going to be the simple smash & grab he thought it would be. Comedy & mayhem ensue.

Overall Blue Streak is an example of a simple premise & suspension of disbelief story for the purposes of comedy. Revolving around the comedy talents of Martin Lawrence show casing his comedic ability to carry a film. The opening is nice & snappy, setting up the situation and then jumping ahead to the 2 years later. His funny realization of the situation, leads quickly into his streamlined Police training by watching episodes of Cop's & being assigned to the burglary squad , where he puts his criminal skills to good on the other side of the law for a change. As inbetween his compulsory duties to remain undercover, with some funny responses to his techniques , deflecting probes of his identity & getting a little comfortable in the life, he attempts to find the whereabouts of the jewel. As the film leads up to a neat finale where he is confronted by his past partners in crime.

Martin Lawrence (Bad Boys) is hilarious in this, showcasing his natural clowning around abilities & bumbling his way through as a cop convincing people of his credentials with his forthright attitude.
