Complete garbage. Grew up with the original, loved the soundtrack, story, action. Part 3 is a huge waste of money. Martin Lawrence looks like he’s packing walnuts for the winter. Cheesiest storyline. The writers just totally suck. Save your money.
I was really hoping this would be good but it fell short. The story was weak, the acting was poor, and it had far less comedy and action as Bad Boys 2. Overall, this was the worst of the 3 films in the series.
When I first learned there was a new Bad Boys movie in production, I was so excited. I eagerly looked forward to more of the quirky lines- like, "two bitches of the sea". I imagined the quirky comebacks and all of the action and excitement of seeing the bad boys together again at last! I was prepared for more of the same that we've experienced in the first two installments.
That was not actually what was presented here...yes, there is still the excitement, and loads of action. But something was different...When I finished watching, I was perplexed because though I really enjoyed the movie, it just wasn't...the same.
Then I got it...they are both older, wiser, more mature...and more fed up with the crap that comes with being a cop...it would have been a serious mistake to play them off as 30 somethings, when indeed, they are not--and we, as fans shouldn't expect them to be! I realized that what was so different was that Bad Boys For Life was classy.
I believe this movie had a different director than the first two, maybe that was where the turn was made, but however it happened, it was needed for this version to be the masterpiece that it is, and not just another sequel.
From the threshed out story line (not going to give any spoilers, but lots gets explained here), to the overall level of maturity, it was the perfect movie that was adjusted to suit our own levels of maturity as viewers (who are years older now as well). It was left open for future movies, and I, for one, REALLY want to see another one made...
That's all I will say, because I do not want to spoil the movie for anyone, but let me just say that I am pretty sure that anyone and everyone will enjoy Bad Boys For Life.
This was not like the previous two movies. This one just didn't flow as well, neither was the script written as well. The opening scene was highly predictable. The whole movie was made by the bad guy -- we should be seeing more of him as he played a action anti-hero very well. Not bad to look at either.
Unfortunately...it's unclear how he got to be as good or just say as ruthless a bad guy without the tutilage of his mother. More backstory on him would have helped. I paid a lot to stream this tonight and had been waiting on a rental but well...covid is pushing the timeline back. However IF I would have sat in a theater, I would have been disappointed. Not sure if I'd watch this again...
It has got all the curtains and none of the feel of the originals. First 30 minutes is painful. The big reveal is so fruity it could fill a cornucopia. Dialogue is 80% lack luster, this is where most of the problems exist. It's clunky and sounds like it was written by children. Only good parts are when Marcus and Mike shine through with some of the old charisma. Save your money, glad I only rented.
This was a very very bad remake.......rushed, no chemistry like the other two, just bad.....but....the other two bad boy movies make up for this disaster, that's why i gave it a 4. uggh,,,,this was really really a bad movie all around, and I love Will and Martin. Enjoy the payday you recieved.
i'll always follow Will Smith and Martin Lawrence any where ...their humor, so many laughs, silliness, great style. they are just awesome!! Did you realize ... i did take a walk down memory lane: Martin - 1992, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air 1990. i think i have seen all the "Bad Boys" movie ??! saw this was out early and wanted to see it. good movie. BUT i could have lived without all the cuss word ...but that is just how i was raised and those words have gotten nuts lately ... i mean it use to be one here or there ... now it is every other word??! come on now!! who improves this?? why is it necessary? i wonder if there will be another??! am i the only one that wanted to break out in "Martin" like on his tv show??! the 90's were the best. great shows, if you have never watch either of those sitcoms??!
