January 1, 2000
The contortional physical shtick familiar from Lawrence's sitcom, laden with a dollop of Three Stooges violence, should keep the boys happy.
January 1, 2000
In the wake of a summer of capers and cons, Blue Streak arrives as a dull afterthought and a sorry vehicle for the comic expression of Martin Lawrence.
January 1, 2000
As an action comedy, Blue Streak offers little freshness on either front.
January 1, 2000
There's a pretty decent joke at the center of this otherwise routine action-comedy.
January 1, 2000
Assembled with style.

Lawrence seems trapped in his jug-eared, slightly clownish nervousness, like a sidekick suddenly shoved into the spotlight.

January 1, 2000
A formula picture that never rises above the generic but entertains nevertheless.

January 1, 2000
Provides a nifty 90-minute escape and more than a few yuks.
January 1, 2000
Apart from Lawrence's goofing, Blue Streak isn't much of a movie and its formula of stunts, anti-authority humor and a chase-and-crash finale is predictable enough to be depressing.

January 1, 2000
Most of the film is just Mr. Lawrence goofing around.
January 1, 2000
A lifeless farce!
January 1, 2000
Still, the movie is pretty bad. It's Rush Hour meets 48 Hours meets Bad Boys except this time around there's only one bad boy and the script and direction are subpar.

January 1, 2000
The resumes of the minds behind it almost define Hollywood formula mediocrity.
January 1, 2000
Unimaginative.

January 1, 2000
You watch this movie for Lawrence's antics but soon realize he doesn't really involve the audience in his comedy, the way Murphy did in 48Hrs.
January 1, 2000
Since the characters are pretty simple, and the plot wafer-thin, there's not a lot for Martin to do but fall back on wild histrionics and facial explosions.
January 1, 2000
Blue Streak falls victim to bad cliches.
January 1, 2000
Blue Streak suffers from an identity crisis.
January 1, 2000
Lawrence has become involved in a film that makes us acutely embarrassed for him.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
January 1, 2000
A pooped, poorly executed buddy-cop comedy with more cliches than expletives.
