Excellent! We sure hope there is a 4th one!

Read the other comments and you will probably find a common feeling about the movie. It is ok as an entertainment action film with comedy. If you enjoy The other guys movie with Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg you will probably enjoy this one.

The Bad Boys trilogy database are all overlaid with each other.

★★½ Bad Boys (1995): Good first 9.5 minutes and the story degenerates to a farcical string of comic skits on marriage and trailers of stunts ... with excellent Miami skyline views from the air/sea circa 1995, except that the nightclub scene, shown as nightclub Zillion at 1:05:30 mark, is located in Atlanta. Two more sequels of the buddy-cop pair with Smith, and Lawrence whose 2010 "Death at A Funeral" is a must watch for a "black" comedy:
★★★★ Bad Boys II (2003): A better and bigger budget film than the 1995 pilot, made possible with the introduction of an undercover NY cop Syd (Gabrielle Union) working a case with the Bad Boys in Miami. It is a bit long but has a couple of exciting car chase stunts and the explosive Cuban military mission in the finale.

★★★½ Bad Boys for Life (2020): The bad boys are showing their age but still deliver an entertaining action-crime comedy thanks to a twist from the past and the introduction of a lethal assassin. Good shots of the glitzy skyscrapers and urban barrios of Mexico City.

I enjoyed this movie for what it is! Action and fun banter between Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. I wish the AMMO crew could have gotten a bit more shine, but maybe in the next installment.

First half of the movie can be skipped. The second half was much better.

For the fun of it, and about half the action, I give this three stars. The story's a little far-fetched, but you can kind of overlook that because no one is watching this movie for a meaningful drama or narrative. There are some action sequences that were just infuriating to watch and completely dispelled any interest in the tension of the chase, [SPOILER ALERTS] a few bullets make a car explode, a good guy shooting everything that moves except for when the bad guy is right in front of him, PD disbands the only team that is investigating the murder of cops and judges... At some point, it becomes almost impossible to stay interested in a movie when these things keep happening over and over again. At 2 hours, it is way longer than it should be for this caliber of action movie. If you're a fan of the Bad Boy movies, you'll get some enjoyment out of it - but it isn't 4 or 5 star enjoyment!

Bad Boys for Life came back after so many years with the same bang and rib tickling action packed laughter. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence were fantastic as always and bought Mike and Marcus back to life with the same quirkiness but also with fresh fun as well. Bad Boys for Life was bought back in such a way that you would not have to watch the previous two movies to understand it but I would recommend that you do.

I saw this in the theatre and didn't find it particularly funny or believable. Repeated references to the movie's title and the whole dichotomy of the two inseparable main characters quickly became pretty tiresome. Will Smith has had some good roles but there are recognizable aspects to the films where he was involved in the writing or directing.
