Bad Boys

( 1 )

Overview

Anchor Bay's DVD reissue of Bad Boys does well by this cult sleeper's fans by presenting the film in a nicely assembled package. The video presents the film in an anamorphically enhanced widescreen image that is much richer and detailed than previous video edition of this title. Audio is unfortunately limited to Dolby mono but the soundtrack it delivers is surprisingly clear and sharp. Fans of this film will also be happy to note that Anchor Bay has restored Bad Boys to its full theatrical length (the previous ...

Overview

Anchor Bay's DVD reissue of Bad Boys does well by this cult sleeper's fans by presenting the film in a nicely assembled package. The video presents the film in an anamorphically enhanced widescreen image that is much richer and detailed than previous video edition of this title. Audio is unfortunately limited to Dolby mono but the soundtrack it delivers is surprisingly clear and sharp. Fans of this film will also be happy to note that Anchor Bay has restored Bad Boys to its full theatrical length (the previous DVD edition used an edited print). In the extras area, Anchor Bay delivers the film's original theatrical trailer and a commentary from director Rick Rosenthal. This commentary track is a treat because Rosenthal has a sharp memory and offers plenty of fascinating detail about the filmmaking process (he points out how the dialogue-looping group added a menacing atmosphere to the reformatory scenes with their imaginative background audio) and interesting anecdotes about the shoot, including the revelation that the realistic-looking reformatory was actually a set built in a naval armory. To sum up, the combination of a nice transfer and an informative commentary makes this DVD a must for the film's fans.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Although much of the film verges uncomfortably close to cliché, solid performances make Bad Boys something more than a simple genre exercise in juvenile delinquency. Sean Penn's Mick talks in a laconic mumble that often plays entertainingly against his motor-mouthed cellmate, Horowitz Eric Gurry. Mick stays quiet because he assumes anything he says will be used to harm him, while Horowitz's ceaseless patter covers his frail psychological makeup. When they share the screen, there is a palpable vitality. The middle section of the film, in which they combine their strengths to become the alpha males of the prison, manages to simultaneously build tension while subtly revealing Mick's comparative humanity and Horowitz's sociopathic nature. Sadly, the characters take a back seat as the film gears up for a typical "last big showdown" fight between Mick and the bad guy. With 20 or so minutes of the film remaining, Horowitz exits, taking a great deal of the film's energy with him. Although the ending is not as powerful as it could be, Bad Boys proves that great performances can overcome routine story lines. More often than not after this film, Penn would have material worthy of his status as arguably the finest actor of his generation. Perry Seibert
