Bulletproof

Critics Consensus

In addition to its ability to deflect gunfire, Bulletproof proves sadly impervious to humor, logic, or worthwhile viewing.

Audience Reviews for Bulletproof

    Archie Moses: Jesus... I gotta learn how to fight; this is pathetic.  "Their friendship could survive anything... except each other." I'll admit when I first started watching Bulletproof, I expected a completely terrible movie. What I got was not good, but it wasn't terrible either. In fact, the film had me laughing out loud on multiple occasions. This is an action comedy starring Damon Wayans, Adam Sandler, and James Caan. As far as the action goes, it leaves a whole lot to be desired. The comedy is there, but not for the whole runtime. There are scenes that are complete comedic failures. Still, I have to admit that I somewhat enjoyed the movie. Not enough to say I liked it, but enough to say it isn't as bad as you may be lead to believe. Sandler and Wayans play two car thieving friends. Sandler plays Moses and Wayans plays Keets. The only problem is that Keets is actually a cop trying to bring down a drug kingpin that Moses works for. So obviously that friendship isn't going to last. The showdown ends with Moses accidentally shooting his old friend in the head. Months later the two have to work together to avoid being killed by the drug kingpin named Colton. It's a pretty straightforward plot. It's simple and unoriginal. They try to throw in surprises, but we've seen this a million times so, there are no real surprises to be seen. As someone who doesn't hate Sandler nearly as much as most, I'll say that I thought he was funny in this movie. It's early Sandler before he got into too big of a routine in his movies. It isn't his best movie and it isn't even close to his worst. It's just an average little action comedy. I think there's enjoyment to be had in watching Bulletproof if you can just accept what it is. By no means am I saying this is a good movie. In fact, it is a bad movie. But it is one of those bad movies that I can enjoy. I'd actually go as far as saying that it is a guilty pleasure of mine.

    "Bulletproof" is the poor man's "Midnight Run", if, in fact, that poor man has no sense of humor.

    I thought this film deserved more credit, It was pretty funny and not silly funny like most of Adam Sandler films.
