User Review

Great Timing and Pace, Full of Twists and a Great Entertainment

Rating: 7/10

The criminals Rock Keats (Damon Wayans) and Archie Moses (Adam Sandler)
are best friends and have been stealing cars together for one year.
Archie invites Rock to join the gang of the drug lord Frank Colton
(James Caan) without knowing that Rock is indeed the undercover
detective Jack Carter, assigned to get evidences against Frank. During
the police raid against a heroin shipping of Frank, Archie accidentally
shoots Jack in his head. Once recovered, Jack declares Archie his
enemy, and arrests him. But the former mates have to join forces
against Frank's gangsters and many dirty cops.

"Bulletproof" is a very funny police story, with a great timing and
pace. There is a great chemistry between Damon Wayans and Adam Sandler,
the good story has many twists and jokes, the cast is charming,
especially the gorgeous Kristen Wilson and this is the second time that
I watch this film and I still like it. This movie seems to be
underrated in IMDb, with some very unfair reviews, and it is a great
entertainment. My vote is seven.
