I am excited!

I hope bad boys will show us how to do remakes/sequels! Literally my favorite movie growing up. I am so hyped about it.

Too Bad For Too Long.

There is nothing particularly special about the latest installment of the "Bad Boys" franchise. Twenty-five years after the original loudly bashed, smashed and crashed onto the big screen and then returned eight years later with the sequel, "Bad Boys for Life" is little more than a rehashed revenge story, devoid of any originality and lacking the relevance...

I'm not here to tell you Bad Boys For Life is going to be on my top ten of 2020, but if it sounds like what you want to see, I reckon you'll go home happy with how you spent your money.

While Bad Boys for Life has a completely asinine story, generic action, predictable plot beats, moronic dialogue and truly reprehensible politics, I still had a good time.

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence bring their A game, never letting us feel like they're going through the motions. The marks may be standard issue, but they hit them with with fury and flair.

Decisively the best of the trio; it actually has a heart, or what passes for one in a gigantic, slam-bang industrial enterprise like this.

Overall, Bad Boys for Life is probably a wash, but it ends so well that I now find myself not entirely opposed to the idea of a fourth Bad Boys entry. Whatcha gonna do?

Having wisely kicked original director Michael Bay to the curb, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence prove that they still have enough '90s action-movie chemistry to lift this cop buddy movie above the herd.

Adil and Bilall... bring a breath of fresh air and fun energy to a franchise that felt somewhat stale, even 25 years ago, when the first film was likened, not inaccurately, to a carbon copy of "Lethal Weapon."

Lacklustre and devoid of inspiration.
