BAD BOYS
1995, Columbia, 118 min, USA, Dir: Michael Bay

Put-upon family man Marcus (Martin Lawrence) and swinging bachelor Mike (Will Smith) are Miami police detectives who must not only track down a huge cache of heroin stolen from their station’s evidence room but also convince Julie (Tea Leoni), the only witness to their friend’s murder, to testify. A rip-roaringly profane action comedy, with a brilliantly depraved Tcheky Karyo as the duo’s twisted nemesis.


THE ROCK
1996, Buena Vista, 136 min, USA, Dir: Michael Bay

FBI chemical weapons specialist Nicolas Cage and ex-convict Sean Connery (the only man to successfully escape from Alcatraz, aka "The Rock"), are enlisted to break into the former prison when a disgruntled U.S. general (Ed Harris) goes over the edge, seizing the island with his elite commandos and threatening to attack San Francisco if his demands aren’t met. Bruckheimer’s first film after splitting with partner Don Simpson, THE ROCK is a mega-octane action machine, delivered with characteristic skill and humor by director Michael Bay and acted by a superb cast including Cage, Connery, David Morse, Michael Biehn and William Forsythe.
