The wife and son of a Mexican drug lord embark on a vengeful quest to kill all those involved in his trial and imprisonment including Miami Detective Mike Lowrey. When Mike gets wounded, he teams up with partner Marcus Burnett and AMMO a special tactical squad to bring the culprits to justice. But the old-school, wisecracking cops must soon learn to get along with their new elite counterparts if they are to take down the vicious cartel that threatens their lives.
Finally the third Bad Boys movie has come out after it had been rumoured to come out for the last few years. It’s got an old school action movie feel to it and feels like a continuation of the first two movies. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are great and the additions of the new team are good too. After I saw the trailers for it a I thought with the new cast, the movie looked a bit cheesy and not very good, but it’s better than I thought it was going to be and I enjoyed it. There’s some big and shocking moments that happen and of course there’s some big action sequences.
I feel after the long wait the movie doesn’t click as much as it would have if it was made earlier. They did the story where Marcus (Martin Lawrence) is getting older, becoming a grandad and wanting to retire which made sense, but it just doesn’t feel like the old movies. There was a car chase at the start which felt weird and that it was going to be a joke, which just felt a bit flat. It’s a bit predictable at times and it’s not as funny as the previous movies.
I enjoyed the movie, it’s a good continuation of the story, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are in good form.
