Editorial Reviews

Academy Award(R)-winner Anthony Hopkins (Best Actor, 1991, THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS) and the irrepressible Chris Rock star in this spy action thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat! Veteran CIA agent Gaylord Oakes (Hopkins) must recruit streetwise punk Jake Hayes (Rock) when Jake's identical twin brother is killed in the line of duty. With only nine days to complete a nuclear weapons negotiation, Jake has to go from smart talking to smooth operating and convince all parties he is the sophisticated brother he never knew. From Prague to New York the chase is on and the clock is ticking when more than a preemptive arms deal goes "bad."

I went to see this movie on June 3rd at a preview screening...The theater was full, and judging by the reaction of the rest of the audience as the movie progressed, I would have to say that most other viewers agreed with me and enjoyed the movie as well.
Chris Rock plays a dual role as a CIA agent and his twin brother (separated by adoption as infants) who didn't know of each other's existence. When the agent is killed in the middle of a deal, the CIA pays a visit to his brother, a small-time bookie with a good heart and an aversion to 'suits'. He is talked into playing the role of his brother in order to complete the deal that was in progress.
Anthony Hopkins' talent makes the best of the rather mediocre script given to his character, and his character becomes a character you sympathize with and root for.
There are many laughable moments in this movie, and it moves along at a very good pace ... there are some predictable turns but enough unpredictability to keep you guessing.
I left the movie with the thought "I'm glad I went; it was well worth seeing".
Oscar-caliber? No. Good entertainment? Yes; definitely. Put this on your summer movie list; you won't be sorry you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bad Company Is GOOD! June 11, 2002
By A Customer
This is the best movie I have seen in a long time. I am a fan of both Chris Rock and Anthony Hopkins but I never thought they would be in a movie together. It just works. The movie has a great balance of action AND comedy and the two stars seem to have good chemistry. Props also to the director Joel Schumacher for pulling it all together. Go see it, you won't be disappionted!!

5.0 out of 5 stars More Than Expected! June 6, 2007
Format:DVD
I don't usually watch a film too concerned about who is in it, who produced and directed it. If any of these are familiar, so much the better (e.g., Tony Scott). First of all, the pairing of Anthony Hopkins and Chris Rock was simply a surprise. The soundtrack is excellent (and who cares if any of it was used before?). It begins as what looks like a fairly serious film (several killings in Prague) and then BAM! it is a comedy. If they spent any time showing how they figured out that Michael Turner (Kevin Pope's alias) had a twin brother (the husling Jake Hayes) it would have spoiled the film completely.

Much of the hilarity and charm of this film comes from that BAM--and it comes through. Does anyone expect Anthony Hopkins to be anything but dry as an FBI Agent? I mean, his boss, after all, seems to be 30 years younger than him. Why is he taking orders? Why does he have a crew of geeky 30-somethings to handle, as well as groom Jake Hayes for a critical job?

It isn't perfect. I'll bet Chris Rock made up 40% of his lines on the spot (like, what does C.I.A. stand for?). Anyone expecting "Three Days of the Condor" gets what is expected, disappointment. Taken for what it is (such as, why is one of the head criminals an ex-K.G.B. Colonel named "Vas" which is at best an OLD nickname for an out-of-date Russian first name.....it moves, it is funny, and is definitely worth two viewings, so at least, well, $9.99. And there are so FEW comedies worth the time these days!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Then I Expected October 12, 2004
Format:DVD
Ok I didn't have the highest of expectations but it was an entertaining film. You've got to admit no one expected Anthony Hopkins and Chris Rock to ever team up in a movie. Without them this movie would have been a complete flop. The plot was fairly predictable but it didn't keep the jokes and action scenes from being entertaining.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than I anticipated July 15, 2004
Format:DVD
From the reviews I heard, and read, I was expecting Bad Company to be a horrible movie. This movie was actually not bad. Granted there were some far fetched issues, like Anthony Hopkins running up flights of stairs in no time, but too me this movie was a good action comedy.
Chris Rock plays Mike Turner/Jacob Hayes. As Jacob Hayes, he is a bookie/DJ/hustler who is coming to terms with his ending relationship with Julia who after three years is moving to Seattle to move on with her life. Jacob is brought into the CIA to help finish a case his now murdered brother Mike Turner was working on. Agent Oaks has 9 days to make Jacob as polished and knowledge as Hayes to make the mission a success. Jacob is to help twart a possible suitcase bomb from getting into the wrong hands. As Mike Hayes he has to speak well, and well act like his brother without blowing the whole case. Turns out he can mix his street smarts and get over. He can't fool everybody though. When Nicole (played by Garcelle Beauvais) she knows right off he is not Mike. Jacob has to dodge bullets, and is ready to leave the case all together until His girlfriend Juila is kidnapped by the bad guys.
The movie had some great action scenes. Some of the comedic lines were out of place, but the comedic lines that did fit well in the film were funny. The scene where puts Air supply son "All out of Love" on in a club was very, very funny. Those folks in the club looked like they were about to jump him!!! Kerry Washington has a bright future if she keeps getting some good roles. Irma P Hall has a role in the film as Jacob foster mother. Michael Early also had a very small minor role, so small and minor there was really no sense in him being in the film.
