A slick action-comedy, Ernest R. Dickerson's "Bulletproof" is capably watchable but scores few points for standing out. Starring Damon Wayans and Adam Sandler, the film follows typical action beats, throws in some laughs, and makes for a quick-moving experience that does not quite rise to anything above average.
Even though its lead characters may not be officers of the law, "Bulletproof" sticks to the tried and true buddy-cop formula. There are undercover investigations, backstabbings, and attempts to root out criminal elements. The plot is built on the interactions of its two competent leads, and, while Wayans and Sandler have competent chemistry, they are unable to elevate the routine script. Still, they power some exciting and amusing set-pieces in this sometimes stylishly shot production.
Some hearty laughs abound, but "Bulletproof" only generates a mediocre viewing experience. The film is pleasingly raucous at times, but, while it always puts forth a solid effort, it never becomes solidly enjoyable.
