Bulletproof is a fun, action comedy which deserves a reappraisal; Wayans and Sandler are an entertaining duo making this the perfect Saturday night watch.
Plot: Two criminals, Keats and Moses, end their friendship when Keats turns out to be an undercover cop. Years later the two are forced to work together when Keats is assigned to protect Moses as a witness.
Review: This is a buddy movie few people still talk about but it’s actually one of my favourite Adam Sandler films. I always found him to be rather hit and miss but this was his one and only foray into the action genre. I’d have liked to see him try more, even if they were action comedies as that’s what he’s good at.
Bulletproof is actually a lot of fun with plenty of one-liners and brutal violence to entertain genre fans; Damon Wayans and Adam Sandler have good chemistry and the script has some funny moments, although it’s not exactly Shane Black.
Any movie with James Caan as the villain is always worth a watch and he is clearly relishing every moment in this.
I love how Adam Sandler is actually a bit of a crap criminal who can’t fight at all and keeps getting his ass kicked. Damon Wayans plays a badass with ease and after this and The Last Boy Scout he should have become a huge action star, but it never really happened.
Admittedly the movie is nothing new and is like a million others but it’s still fun. The plane crash scene is nicely done and it is well paced.
Overall, Bulletproof is a fun, action comedy which deserves a reappraisal; Wayans and Sandler are an entertaining duo making this the perfect Saturday night watch.
