Product Description

Master jewel thief Miles Logan (Martin Lawrence, Life, 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 center of a recently completed high-security police precinct. Posing as a detective, and partnered with straight laced rookie Carlson (Luke Wilson, Home Fries, Bottle Rocket),Miles utilizes 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 (Flubber, Encino Man).

Martin Lawrence can certainly talk a blue streak (witness his concert film, You So Crazy), but he tones it down to PG-13 for this by-the-book action comedy. Lawrence stars as Logan, a bank robber and jewel thief (nice role model we're supposed to cheer for) who, just before he is arrested, manages to stash the $20 million diamond he has just heisted at a construction site. When he is released from prison two years later, he returns to the scene of the crime only to find that the completed building houses a police station. To get inside and retrieve the precious gem he secures a fake ID and passes himself off as LAPD's newest, and most unorthodox, detective. As he demonstrated on his TV series, Lawrence has a knack for characterization second to Eddie Murphy. But he's no Beverly Hills Cop. Indulgent sequences where Martin has seemingly been given free reign to ad-lib are the film's weakest. Early on, Logan cases the police station outlandishly disguised as a snaggle-toothed, Geri-curled pizza deliveryman. You'd think the last thing his character would want to do is call attention to himself. Lawrence is at his best in the scenes in which, thanks to all those years of breaking and entering, his formerly lawless character proves to be a natural at cracking burglary cases. Logan is paired with the requisite white partner, Carlson (Luke Wilson), a buttoned-up rookie. Departing from the Lethal Weapon, buddy-movie playbook, they are not antagonists; theirs is more a teacher-mentor relationship. "Don't we need a warrant to do that?" Carlson asks Logan at one point. "We don't even need a key," Logan responds, picking a lock. There is little in Blue that is remotely fresh, but Lawrence fans, who watched him play it straight opposite Murphy in Life, will relish the opportunity to see him get down with his bad self. --Donald Liebenson

Blue streak was a good film, funny, good action scenes and a good cast. Martain Lawerance is always good in the films he's been involoved with, from House Party 1&2, Bad boys and Nothing to lose. This is not his best movie (as Bad boys would take some beating), but is one of his best and a lot better than Nothing to lose. Blue Streak is a solid film. Extra on the DVD lok well worth the purchase inluding an HBO First Look Featurette, music video's and the trailer.

Take one great movie, and tack on some juicy extras, and what do you get? A DVD that's as dynamic as the "The Matrix" DVD in its simplicity! Get "Blue Streak" on DVD and you'll be glued to your DVD player for hours. And the movie didn't do too badly, either! The Pizza Man scene had me shaking with laughter, but you have to admit, the speeding car scene didn't do too badly, either. But what I liked most about this movie was the stuff that WASN'T funny. Take the final Deke and Miles confrontation at the end, I've never seen an ending like that since "The Sixth Sense"! In "Blue Streak", you never know what will happen, and that's a very remarkable quality for a movie. In short, Blue Streak is awesome!

Blue Streak is a great comedy/action movie. The movie stars Martin Lawrence (from Bad Boys) as Miles logan, a supergenious when it comes to crime. When his group decides a huge diamond from a bank that is worth $17 MILLION! One of the guys truns on them and makes the plan go wrong. Miles is the only one who gets arrested but before he did, he hid the diamond into a construction across the street. After two years of prison, Miles was finaly let out but things did not go so well. One, his girlfriend dumps him and the building that the diamond was hidden in became a police station. Now Miles has to break into a police station which happens to be the one place you would actually want to break in. Miles gets a fake ID and poses as a cop so he can retrieve the hidden diamond but it instantiousely partnered with a rookie cop, Carlson (Luke Wilson). Logan ends up having to do stuff with police department and seem to fit time to get back the diamond. One thing was for sure, Miles knows how the criminal mind works and manages to solve cases like a pro. Soon Miles has a biig case that involves finding missing drugs. Logan other problem is that he knows his old friend Deacon(Peter Green, the guy who turns on him in the beggining) is still after the diamond and knows Miles is too. Miles has to worry about things.
Overall, I think Blue streak is a good comedy that you will love. Buy it cause I know youll love it.

This is an absolute must-see. Martin Lawrence and Dave Chappelle are at their all time best in this movie. I haven't laughed this hard at a movie since the first time I saw Animal House. Non-stop action and laughs. The Dolby 5.1 soundtrack is spectacular! The seperation is superb.If you add only one movie to your collection this year, make it this one. You won't be dissapointed.

When this movie was over I told my husband that this Martin Lawrence movie was the best of his I've seen in a long time. It was funny throughout the whole movie. Espically when he poses as the pizza man. That had to be the best! I would recommend this movie to someone who is in the mood for a lot of good laughs.

Format: DVD
Our public library recently started a DVD collection providing patrons with the opportunity to check out classic films like "Citizen Kane," "Seven Samurai," "Lawrence of Arabia," "Mickey Mouse in Color," and "Blue Streak." If that last one is rather surprising given the select company imagine our amazement when Martin Lawrence makes it through this 1999 action comedy virtually profanity free. Like "The Wedding Planner" for Adam Sandler, "Blue Streak" shows Lawrence that less is more. The story is that once upon a time there was a jewel thief named Miles Logan (Lawrence), who heisted a $20 million jewel which he had to hide on a construction site right before he was popped. Two years later he returns to the site only to discover it is the new LAPD Police Headquarters and the only way to get inside is if you are a cop. So, Logan becomes a cop. To the surprise of his colleagues, the viewers and even himself, he turns out to be a pretty good burglary detective (after all, the man is a professional), and the best part of "Blue Streak" is when Logan does the serve and protect bit while his new found colleagues express their growing admiration. These are a lot better than his get up for the pizza delivery scam, but no one involved in the production seemed to notice this was totally out of place with the entire rest of the film. For the most part "Blue Streak" is quite enjoyable, with neither the humor nor the action being forced, with the aforementioned exception. We put this movie on expecting a raunchy little late night comedy and ended up enjoying it (half way through we stopped saying, hey, this is a lot better than I thought it was going to be). This may well be the Martin Lawrence movie for people who do not like Martin Lawrence.

I know I am going to be banged on this but please read my following review of this movie:
Blue Streak
There's ultimately little doubt that Blue Streak would've fared a whole lot better without Martin Lawrence in the central role, as the actor delivers a hopelessly broad and relentlessly grating performance that proves effective at single-handedly negating the film's few positive attributes. The storyline follows jewel thief Miles Logan (Lawrence) as he emerges from a prison stint determined to retrieve the valuable diamond he hid two years earlier, with complications ensuing as Miles is forced to assume the identity of a detective to retrieve said diamond (which is now sitting inside a police station). It's a can't-lose premise that admittedly does ensure that the movie generally comes off as an affable piece of work, yet the unwarranted emphasis on silliness becomes too much to bear almost immediately - as Lawrence seems to have been given free reign to indulge in his every comedic whim. The resulting spree of mugging and overacting is nothing short of painful, with the collective efforts of Lawrence's talented costars (ie Luke Wilson, Dave Chappelle, and William Forsythe) at picking up the slack falling almost entirely flat. Exacerbating matters is the egregiously action-packed third act - which, naturally, kicks off in an abandoned warehouse - that starts off well enough but grows increasingly tedious as it progresses, and although screenwriters Michael Berry, John Blumenthal, and Stephen Carpenter deserve credit for steering clear of melodrama at the film's close, Blue Streak is simply unable to overcome the scenery-chewing excess of Lawrence's hopelessly incompetent turn.
p.s. I thought the jokes were rather crude and in bad taste but alas that is one of Lawrence's own fault. The only people that would find this film
amusing at all must really be a fan of Martin Lawrence's acting ability.
