A searing and gut-wrenching film, BAD BOYS is to the 1980s what THE BLACKBOARD JUNGLE was to the 1950s. Sean Penn stars as Mick, an angry young juvenile delinquent who, after a series of offenses, is thrown into the slammer where he joins the scum of the earth. Mick soon becomes top dog in

this kennel, but an old enemy rapes Mick's girl friend on the outside and is sent to the same prison, whereupon a battle for turf commences. BAD BOYS is disturbing, sometimes annoying, often painful, and never boring. Writer Richard Dilello and director Richard Rosenthal have taken a difficult

subject and infused it with interesting people, some wit, and a lot of careful thought. This 123-minute opus may go too long for its own good. As in any film that attempts to make a broad statement, BAD BOYS has occasional forays that lead nowhere; overall, though, it's a fair work that presents

its subject seriously but not pedantically.
