Blue Streak is a 1999 action-comedy movie directed by Les Mayfield and starring Martin Lawrence in the lead role. The movie tells the story of a jewel thief named Miles Logan who steals a valuable diamond and hides it in a building under construction before getting arrested. Two years later, on his release from prison, he discovers that the building is now a police station. To retrieve the diamond, Miles poses as a detective and infiltrates the station, leading to a string of hilarious situations and action-packed sequences.

The plot of Blue Streak is straightforward and easy to follow, designed to entertain audiences with its humor and action. The movie begins with Miles Logan (Martin Lawrence) unsuccessfully robbing a precious diamond from a jewelry store in Los Angeles. While escaping from the scene, he is caught by the police and sent to prison for two years. During that time, Miles becomes obsessed with finding the diamond he stole and hatches a plan to retrieve it by posing as a LAPD detective.

Upon his release, Miles visits the construction site of the now-finished building and discovers that it is the new police station for the department that arrested him. Determined to retrieve the diamond, he poses as a detective named Malone and gets away with it. However, things get complicated when Miles is assigned to a high-profile case involving the robbery of a shipment of confiscated drugs. He quickly realizes that he has stumbled into a dangerous situation involving corrupt cops, drug dealers, and his own past.

The majority of the movie takes place within the police station, where Miles has to navigate his way through various challenges to find the diamond. He gets help from the station's janitor, played by Dave Chappelle, who provides some of the movie's funniest moments. Miles also finds himself falling for the beautiful and tough detective Melissa Green (played by Nicole Ari Parker), whose suspicion of Malone only makes Miles' charade more difficult.

As Miles gets entangled in the drug case, he also has to deal with the suspicious Officer Carlson (played by Luke Wilson), who sees through his disguise and tries to catch him in the act. Along the way, Miles is involved in several chases, shootouts, and other action scenes that provide the movie's excitement and adrenaline.

One of the key strengths of Blue Streak is Martin Lawrence's performance as Miles Logan. He brings his trademark witty humor and sarcastic quips to the role, making Miles a likable character despite his criminal past. Lawrence also shines in the movie's action scenes, doing most of his stunts and delivering some impressive martial arts moves. The supporting cast, including Luke Wilson and Peter Greene, also does a good job in their roles, providing some extra depth to the movie's story.

Overall, Blue Streak is an enjoyable movie that offers a fun and thrilling experience for audiences. It doesn't try to be overly complex or philosophical, but rather focuses on delivering an entertaining story with good action, humor, and characters. It's a good example of the action-comedy genre and a must-watch for fans of Martin Lawrence or anyone looking for a light-hearted movie with plenty of laughs and thrills.

Blue Streak is a 1999 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 33 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.3 and a MetaScore of 46.
