The Miami Vice thread make me remember I watched a little bit of Bad Boys on Channel 5 yesterday.
Leaving aside for the moment the epileptic directing style which ensured that any scenes not in slow motion would only last a maximum of 3 seconds each and the shoehorning in of bizarrely gay/racist/mentally ill one liners. I would like an explanation of why at the end these alleged cops charge in the front entrance of a warehouse where they know all the badguys are packing heat and have a hostage. I would like to know why they run while discharging their weapons, which is lethally dangerous and bad form considering they are senior police officers. I would like to know why bad guys who were unarmed were summarily executed. Iâ€™d like to know why they didnâ€™t wait for adequate back-up. Iâ€™d really like to know why after theyâ€™d chased down the bad guy and shot him in the leg while he was trying to run away, he wasnâ€™t immediately ordered to keep his hands away from his person and keep them there and why the arresting officers TURNED AWAY from him before he had been immobilisedâ€”which lead to a situation where he was able to go for a concealed weapon inside his jacket and had to be killed on the spot. And this was just from the five minutes I tuned in for.
Whatâ€™s the meaning?
