Synopsis

A box set of action films. In 'Blue Streak' jewel thief Miles Logan (Martin Lawrence) has just been released from jail after a two year stretch for his involvement in the theft of a precious diamond. He stashed the jewel in a building that was still under construction. Unfortunately, in the intervening two years, a police station has been built on the site! Unfazed by this inconvenience, wise-cracking Miles decides to infiltrate the police force, pose as an officer of the law, and recover the jewel from its secret hiding place. 'I Spy' is the big-screen updating of the popular Sixties show (that starred Bill Cosby and Robert Culp) directed by former 'Hill Street Blues' regular, actress Betty Thomas. A stealth fighter, that is invisible to radar and also can become invisible to the human eye, has been stolen and is now in the hands of an underground arms dealer, Gundars (Malcolm McDowell). Federal agent Alex Scott (Owen Wilson) has failed once to get to Gundars and recruits a middleweight boxer, Kelly Robinson (Eddie Murphy), to infiltrate Gundars camp - Gundars is an avid boxing fan. However, Robinson and Scott are like chalk and cheese and so comic action ensues. Finally, in 'National Security', LAPD reject and major troublemaker, Earl (Martin Lawrence) manages to get fellow cop Hank (Steve Zahn) kicked off the force for brutality. Now these two guys, who can't stand each other, are stuck working together as lowly security guards. But even as security guards they can still do their bit when they stumble across a major crime involving a smuggling ring run by Nash (Eric Roberts). However, when they try to inform their previous employers, they are at first ignored and then find themselves the targets of not only Nash's henchmen but also two LAPD officers.
