Overview

Blue Streak capitalizes on an unusual premise (a criminal goes undercover as a cop) and the charm of star Martin Lawrence to make for a superior action comedy with a strong following. Columbia TriStar's DVD offers excellent picture and sound quality, with an anamorphic widescreen transfer and Dolby 5.1 Audio ensuring the explosive action is rendered as effectively as possible. There are also a pleasing number of additional features on this disc. Aside from the obligatory filmographies and original theatrical trailer, there are two featurettes and no less than three music videos. The better of the two featurettes is the 22-minute "Setting Up For the Score," which is mainly standard on-set material, but does reflect the likeable charm of the film and its stars. HBO's "Inside & Undercover" is a minute longer, but not quite as good, as it employs the more tiresome method of punctuating long clips of the movie with tiny interview snippets. The three music videos are "Girl's Best Friend" by Jay-Z, "Criminal Mind" by Tyrese, and "Damn (Should've Treated U Right)" by So Plush. Two of these incorporate scenes from Blue Streak, and all are visually interesting and worthwhile additions to an anamorphic DVD. Like Blue Streak itself, this disc is laid back and fun, and should be more than satisfactory to fans of Lawrence and the film.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
An always engaging and frequently hilarious cop comedy, Blue Streak provides erstwhile sitcom star Martin Lawrence with his most satisfying big-screen showcase to date. He plays Miles Logan, a master thief who impersonates a cop in order to penetrate the police station where, several years prior, he hid a $17 million diamond just before getting carted off to prison. Logan's efforts to maintain a convincing front while searching for the hidden jewel generates the film's laughs. Director Les Mayfield Encino Man gives the star plenty of leeway, and Lawrence invests his swaggering, street-smart heist artist with the same brash manner and manic energy that first endeared him to TV audiences. Best of all, he lampoons the type of indestructible cop that's become a fixture in action movies; no cliché is left unspoofed. Shoot-outs and car chases pep things up, and the supporting players are uniformly fine, but Blue Streak is essentially pure, undistilled Martin Lawrence at his sparkling best.
