The criminal activity onscreen in Bulletproof is penny ante compared with the felonious slaughter of story, character and logic exacted by the pic's filmmakers.
The movie has a smirking homophobic bent and never makes you care or believe in the characters as much as in the first fifteen minutes.
The audience is subjected to an onslaught of unfunny jokes, a string of useless profanity, and more explosive squibs than Caan wore in The Godfather.
While some of the humor is very funny, there's nothing remotely interesting about the action stuff.
The film's action elements are so preposterous that the sequence of events seems almost improvised.
...a forgettable actioner that consistently wastes the talents of its two stars.
A throwback to when Adam Sandler was funny.
A tiresome Sandler-Wayans buddy-buddy crime actioner that needs its staid material to be desperately riddled with bullets.
Fairly weak "buddy" pic with both actors playing below par.
