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.

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!!

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!!!

The premise is kind of hokey, a streetwise NY flimflammer, twin to a deceased CIA agent is summoned to save the deal his brother left behind. Anthony Hopkins can play off anyone, and the comic relief mixed with the serious agenda plays out for an hour and a half of entertainment.

The Internet Movie Database lists 18 film titles as "Bad Company." In several instances that title translates to bad companions. With the 2002 film, which enjoyed a lavish production budget, the title translates to "CIA is a Bad Company," as actors Anthony Hopkins, Gabriel Macht, Brooke Smith, John Slattery and several others are portrayed as CIA agents. The Joel Schumacher "Bad Company" is viewable for several reasons: the lavish production presents some of the newer Mission Impossible scene settings including the beauties of Prague, while including Mission Impossible 2 actor Hopkins. "Bad Company" 2002 presents two actors who appeared in "Silence of the Lambs," Smith and Hopkins; one actor who appeared in the CIA thriller "The Recruit," Gabriel Macht; John Slattery, now of TV's Mad Men; Shea Whigham, now appearing in HBO's premier series, "Boardwalk Empire."

In the 2002 "Bad Company" a victim in "Silence of the Lambs" (Smith) is a very friendly CIA colleague of the former and future Hannibal Lecter (Hopkins), at which, one might fall over laughing at this casting. In the 2002 "Bad Company" Hopkins chews gum while shooting at villains. Shakespearean educated actors as Wild Bills. Only in America. "Bad Company" 2002 DVD sells for shipping costs, the disk lists for $.01 plus $2.88 USA First Class mailing. Viewers will be challenged to top that entertainment value.

Usually I am not much the fan of half witted brainless action films, which this film certainly could be considered one of. But suprisingly this outing represents one of the better ones of this sort that I have seen. I really like Anthony Hopkins because even though hes such an incredibly accomplished actor he seems to take a lot of risky roles. Hes an serious oscar winner yet hes not afraid of just having a good time with a movie even if it could possibly embarrass him or ruin his career. I think people like that about him, or at least I do. This guy is a heavy weight super star, yet hes game when it comes to choosing some rather unusual scripts. I love the guy. Hes just plain perfect in this role even though its obvious that hes a little on the old side to be running around playing a CIA agent. He still does the job so well you almost believe he could pull it off in reality. Putting him along side hysterical comedic actor Chris Rock is really something interesting to see. Somehow the two of them make a good team despite how unlikely it would be for the chemistry to work. And thanks to some very good funny moments, above average action sequences, intrigue, and an over all very entertaining and stylish kind of production, this movie works better than I really expected it to. Of course you have to suspend reality and just relax and enjoy the show, becaus if you try to view this film as ever being believable youll be dissapointed. Other than that obvious consideration this movie delivered some half witted brainless fun superbly. I really enjoyed it.
