I was not writing movie reviews back in 1995 when the first “Bad Boys” hit the big screen. In fact I can’t remember if I liked the first installment or not. I can however confidently state that I do in fact like “Bad Boys for Life”.
It’s been twenty five years since Mike Lowery (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) first became partners. Fast forward to 2020, Mike and Marcus get together for one last ride…
This installment of the Bad Boy franchise is really good. The movie is fun to watch from start to finish. There is a back story that is carefully laid out, but there is a hole in the plot that does not quite get filled. However that does not take away from the entertainment factor of the movie. There is plenty of action, crazy car and motorcycle chases, but brace yourself…Things do get bloody. The cinematography is on point. The comic relief is alive and well.
I recommend “Bad Boys for Life” for some fun entertainment during this MLK Day Holiday weekend.
This is a 3 ½ Star Movie!!
