Critic Consensus: Chris Rock and Anthony Hopkins fail to generate the sparks necessary to save the movie from a generic and utterly predictable script.

Critic Reviews for Bad Company

All Critics (153) | Top Critics (39)

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.

Nuclear-bomb-in-NYC plot leaves sour aftertaste.

Two hours of my life I will never be able to get back...

Cinema Crazed

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.

Full Review… | January 12, 2004

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

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
