Director Joel Schumacher does a fair job of managing the chaos, but after a while you get tired of being dragged from setup to setup.

If you've seen the trailer, you've seen almost everything good in Bad Company.

Rock doesn't really act with the other performers; he stands next to them and buzzes in his own orbit.

Despite its cliché-ridden premise, Bad Company often works simply because there's so much talent on the screen.

Everything about has been done and seen before--even right down to the title, which the very same studio used as the moniker for a Laurence Fishburne/Ellen Barkin thriller.

The action fails to cause any excitement, and most of the characters are paper-thin.

O roteiro é absurdo, a direção de Schumacher é fraca e o filme, em si, é simplesmente ridículo.

Rock is trying too hard, and Hopkins isn't trying at all.

The funniest thing about Bad Company is that Hopkins actually agreed to star in it.

January 30, 2003 Full Review Source: RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)

An easy watch, except for the annoying demeanour of its lead character.

This movie not only has literally no cause for existence, but it's a testament to how faceless, lazy, and pathetic movies can be.

Hopkins and Rock almost get lost in the hyperkinetic pyrotechnics of the second half... The movie might have been a good call if it had remained true to its beginnings.

Hopkins-Rock action-comedy wastes both talents with an achingly inept script and truly ruinous direction.

Not just a bad film -- it's boring and embarrassing, full of formulaic plot, predictable mugging by Rock, and numerous less-than-fascinating chase scenes.

Yet another exercise in seeing how many cars, buildings, and people he can blow up in two hours.

[Chris Rock gives] arguably the worst lead performance in a mainstream movie ever.

A completely pedestrian piece of entertainment... with a shrink-to-fit ending [that] builds to a dizzyingly ludicrous DIY climax; ...half-baked and over-baked at the same time.

This is a movie on autopilot, too tired and broken down even to find an appropriate place to crash.

Scores no points for originality, wit, or intelligence. It's a cookie-cutter movie, a cut-and-paste job.

Algo floja pero pasajera. Para los adictos al toque Bruckheimer que quieran experimentar una versión light de este contexto.

Is it a comedy or a thriller? The trailer left me unsure, and now, having seen the movie, I feel no better informed.

Audience Reviews for Bad Company

I know I have seen this movie a number of times just can't believe I haven't reviewed it. This is a enjoyable action movie with of course the great comedy in it. Hopkins and Chris Rock were excellent together. Without a doubt a sequel or two could have been made. Great chase scenes. Why did they ever stop making movies like this. Chris Rock and the Effie Murphy crime comedies were over the top and they just disappeared. This one is worth 4 stars on the first day of Spring 3-20-13
