It was hilarious and action packed.

The film does have some exciting action sequences.

View on the film:Reuniting for the first time in 17 years, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence prove they have not missed a beat, thanks to a infectious camaraderie of quick-fire comedic banter between the duo,with Smith bringing a new maturity to Lowrey over facing the end of his bad boy days,along with Lawrence hitting dead-pan laughs on Burnett's tiredness over being dragged back into battle.

And while this drama unfolds in front of your eyes, a great share of nostalgia, a decent portion of "coming of age"-breeze and a constant reminder of the final ultimate point-of-no-return end of the protagonists' relationship - you quickly start asking when something will blow up?

Of course Will and Martin also made a fantastic duo in this film and it was certainly worth watching this in Imax.

The first half of the movie is kinda boring, so we left the other half for the next day.

The plot is very predictable even though there are a load of mistakes when referencing the earlier movies.

The story was very much predictable and the Joker were really bad and poor.

Predictable yet entertaining .

Surprisingly fun and enjoyable, really plays to the lead actor's strengths.

It's an absolute joy and a really entertaining film.

Surprisingly Entertaining for a third sequel .

Indeed, the film is borne of a Thoroughly { - Curious - } " Profane, Dramatic, Unpredictable, & - of course - Comedic 🥂 🤣 🤣 'Cocktail' " of : 1.

This was latest milking of the Bad Boys franchise that delivered a competent and largely predictable plot.

I loved the first two movies, they were original and entertaining as well as hilariously written.

Don't waste you time.

Its waste of time and waste of electricity and waste of energy

The rest of the movie is rather slow.

Save your money.

Uninteresting and tries too hard.

The film deserves to be the 1995 box office dark horse of 1995 with a series of action, continuous jokes and stunning performances by the two leading actors.

A quite entertaining sequel.

Easily the most predictable movie ever.

From the moment the film kicks off with Lowery and Burnett racing through the streets of Miami in the latest model Porsche, you get a very strong sense of what the latest addition in the franchise is going for and not surprisingly if you're either not a fan of the series or not accustomed to previous entries, you may find yourself struggling to have a good time, but for fans, Bad Boys for Life will be giving you a dosage of action packed adrenaline that will be a sight for sore eyes.

Boring and repetitive.

Waste of time, don't bother watching.

The plot was intriguing and I thought the action scenes were very good and thrilling.

A few shocking unexpected moments will have you gasp for air, while surprising cameos are there to amp up laughter.

Wanted to stop it right in the middle, it was so boring.

This movie is original, unexpected, shocking, funny, and frankly amazing.

The ending is brutal and exciting as well which sets up for more , should we want it ( of course we do) Saw this in Dolby Cimema in Leicester Square and now own it on 4k.

Overall, the screenplay is as cliche as it could be, and that last shot...


It is definitely worth the watch and rewatch.

Really entertaining.

Very action packed.

Unfortunately, it does feel like there is less action here, but what does happen is mostly enjoyable with the added element that is random comedy.

The danger is more brutal & frantic than ever here & it's all shot beautifully by new director's so there's a real fresh & exciting approach to it all & the cinematography & look is stunning & extremely colourful & pure eye-catching visuals on screen, the best looking film in the Trilogy.

the first hour nothing happen noteworthy and actually both lawrence and smith felt uncomfortable in their roles due to their old age.

This is an entertaining movie.

otherwise a predictable waste of time...

I also have a little problem with the running time as I think a film of this genre should not exceed a 1h 40min mark, so at certain parts it felt like the scenes were too dragged out, and the film itself should focus on the plot more.

Shot in a kinetic visual style with nice looking scenery, some recognizable returning characters, and the expectedly super violent action scenes, a few which are exciting, most which lack a definitive spark and eventually become redundant.

Bad Boys for Life is an incredible action packed comedy to enjoy for the whole audience who wanted the new Bad Boys movie.

Every cliche you can imagine.

Predictable threequal .

The supporting actors were one dimensional yet exciting.


She is very compelling, is very dangerous, and does not scream a lot as the previous two villains did.

I never walk out of movies, but I couldn't handle any more over the top gun violence, bad acting, predictable plot, and unfunny jokes.

Unlike the other Bad Boys movies, it fails to capture the fun exciting and musical life of being a police officer in Miami.

Watching Alexander Ludwig (Dorn) outside Vikings is always a pleasure (I so wish that he gets more important roles in the future), and the whole AMMO team (Vannesa Hudgens, Charles Melton, Paola Nunez) is all compelling enough, even if the characters are two-dimensional.

Good actors but a poor scenario making the whole movie more than boring.

My next two positives would the films surprisingly strong villain and unexpected plot twists.

It was just a bit cringeworthy in places, some very overly American emotional tug on the heart strings bits that were pretty pathetic and very cheesy and predictable.

Pointless sequel .

As a counterpoint, one of the two girls I took to the movie enjoyed it, the other hated it even more than I did.

This movie was action packed, had a pretty good plot and was hilarious.

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence share fantastic chemistry, and their banter is always entertaining to watch, even if it isn't as hilarious as it could be.

The story is way too predictable and generally disappointing.

The supporting cast are ok, although most aren't used much, and although Will Smith doesn't quite pull off the emotional gravitas the finale requires, it's a fun and enjoyable film.

Long and boring .

Worth watching .

Will & Martin give one of the best combos ever and with their professional performances, this movie is exciting, funny and fun to watch every second, really recommend this!!

It was an entertaining movie and one that I would recommend.

I thought the writing was weak, and the story-line predictable.

I was very exited to hear that they were making a third installment into the franchise but then when I saw it I was bored.

Not to be too harsh, it is an average formula action movie and with a lot of coke and popcorn it is a reasonably enjoyable action movie.

To my surprise, everything is fast pace full with hilarious and exciting moment.

Lots of unpredictable scene, even on one scene i was shock !

The story is predictable and filled with cliches.

A large chunk of the movie was really boring filler.

First 40 minutes consists of short flashes to quickly get the user updated, which is confusing and doesn't add up.

Highly entertaining .

enjoyable hookum , suspend supercilious disbelief and just dive in there and enjoy it .

Bad movie very slow .

Certainly not an Oscar contender, but an entertaining "blow-em-up" with 2 charismatic leads that play off each other well.

I didn't watch a single clip before the film, and ten minutes in, I acknowledged that its goal was to simply be entertaining without taking itself too seriously.

Slow paced, boring drama, not that great of an action movie.

One hit to the next, it's gripping and gives you adrenaline, it's more gripping than ever before, and it's here to stay.

It's just way too long without any tension torgue.

No storyline, terrible acting, hopefully this is the end of this nonsense now.

That said, it is imperative that you watch the previous 2 movies if you're critical on character development, plot direction, transitions etc. Beware that some scenes might feel a bit slow and may hinder your experience.

"Bad Boys for Life" is a funny, full of action and entertaining film.

I cried, laughed, and bit my nails a few times during the suspenseful scenes.

If you listened carefully the story is pretty damn good and very very unpredictable.

Enjoyable Friday night at home large screen movie .

The ride together mantra that seems constantly repeated throughout the film made it feel like I was watching a boring version of a Fast and Furious movie.

On top of that, there's some exciting action, Will and Martin are right back in the swing of things and the script is pretty sharp (for the genre).

The duo (and script) is hilarious, the action is thrilling and that's what a I called a classic action movie at last!

He is annoying with repetitive, bad jokes.

It's just about the most boring place you'll ever see.

I personally enjoyed it a lot.

Will & Martin give one of the best combos ever and with their professional performances, this movie is exciting, funny and fun to watch every second, really recommend this👌🏾

Back in 1995, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence burst on to the scene with Bad Boys, an action film from Michael Bay with plenty of attitude and one of the most entertaining double acts in the genre.

The story was what you would expect, Wild, action packed, funny, with a bit of campiness.

but in another hand It's more action packed than the second, and it's hilariously funny.

Due to some unexpected circumstances, a vengeance plot is set in motion, which finds them on the hunt for the Aretas family.

Action Packed Comedy.

Too bad as the pairing of Smith and Lawrence in the 90's debut was solid and the banter then was more enjoyable.


It was entertaining.

Entertaining .

It took the existing characters that you know from previous films, introduced a new team, made the family and friend aspect very strong, and those aspects in turn just made for a more enjoyable experience.

Older Martin and Will is just as funny as the young and action packed like the rest.

The action sequences is good,the comedy is hilarious and overall it's an enjoyable flick.

Bad jokes, bad story, predictable.

Waste of time .

The movie is hilarious, engaging and full of entertainment.

Thanks for reading this review, I hope you enjoyed it.

While the first 2 Bad Boys movies were watchable and funny at times, this latest addition is simply nauseating unfunny, uninteresting, bland, tired acting from actors past their prime, when you find yourself reaching for your phone during a movie somethings wrong with the movie and I spent most of this movie googling on said phone.

Way too long for its own good.

Mike is dragged back into action when his past catches up to him.

martin lawrence character was dull and irritating and for most of the movie he was making face grimace like he was constipated on a toilet.

Everything is so cliche that you can even predict the dialogue.

Reruns of every single cliche and one liner from 1 and 2 rehashed and squeezed into 3 without a storyline.

I am a bad boys fan and it was always action packed and funny.

There were also some funny moments in the movie which made the movie a bit more entertaining.

But it's quite boring, rubbish storyline and predictable scenes.

It's a little dated , bullets being fired , comic partnership but very formulaic .

After just having revisited the overly entertaining and ridiculous bad boys franchise I really had little hope for this reboot.

Predictable with a terrible story line.

Probably not, but an entertaining one.

This is the worst movie I have seen in a long time.

Directors Adil and Bilall pull out all stops to make it more exciting.

that's how boring it really Got.

I wasted my time in this boring, predictable and not funny movie!

but overall the film was very entertaining and now it seems it's set up for a 4th installment.

The visual effects on point and the stunts where stunning.

Entire film full of quite intense action scene!

Highly recommend it!!

Enjoyed it very much.

2 hours of your life you wont get back, save your money!!

Action Packed .

Only one LOL moment, terrible script, embarrassing "plot twist", stupid AMMO team, what a waste of money

This movie started a little slow but progressively got better and better until I was on the edge of my seat!

Definitely worth the watch; does not dissapoint; good sequel; true to the franchise with some fresh actors/actresses addition

These movie is so boring as hell, predictable and not interesting.

It was funny ,suspenseful and above all a joy to view.

I love how this movie was suspenseful with a plot twist!

I went to watch it a few days ago and I really enjoyed it.

It's boring, missing all the charisma from the first 2 movies and feels more or less like a lame attempt to make some money rather than giving the viewers a good movie to watch.

:)Realizing I'd waste 2 hours of my life if I continued, I turned it off and did something else.

Took a little while to get going but once it did there're the stunning backdrops, chases and shoot outs you expect.

The thrilling action pieces blend well with the enormous amount of one liners and throwbacks to earlier chapters.

With plenty of action, fast paced scenes, sharp directing and some stellar acting from both Will and Martin, it has material that will have you at the edge of your seat with action sequences that will blow your socks off.

After having seen it, I knew I was too eager to trust people who enjoy a 2-hour bore-fest.

The dialogue and relationship were overly formulaic and lost a lot of charm because of that.

Hilarious and nail bitingly action packed.

Yet, as a entertaining romp with a couple of characters that I genuinely enjoy, Bad Boys for Life is a good way to waste a couple of hours.

For the people: It a nice action packed one time watch movie.

It wasn't filmed the same way as the first two, 4K is awesome but somehow it just makes this movie super boring along with all of its wide-panning zoom drone usage.

It was OK.. but pretty predictable.

Bad Boys for Life brings all of the explosive fun the series is known for, but takes the franchise in new and exciting directions by choosing to be more reflective in nature.

Though the plot is quite common and filled with lots of twists and unexpected additions to the story, it overwhelmingly fun plus fill the bill movie and you won't be disappointed to watch it one time.

When Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) is targeted by a demon from his past, he and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence), who he's dragged out of retirement, must team up for one last ride together.

Overall this is a very enjoyable and entertaining film and a surprise package.

First Hit: Funny at the right times, but confusing gun battles took away from the story.

I'm happy to say this is pretty entertaining.

This is funny, action packed and very entertaining.

"Bad Boys For Life" is an entertaining film that offers exciting action and plenty of laughs for everyone to enjoy throughout its two-hour runtime, with the exception of a few hiccups and humorless scenes/jokes that occasionally fail to land.

The film opens with that speeding Porsche sequence from the trailer, with Mike and Marcus employing their usual disregard for innocents while engaging in what looks like the pursuit of the latest Miami criminal.

Bland Boys For Life .

Save your money don't watch film

So I did what any bored quarantined person would do.. I looked into it a little closer.

Worth watching!

More jokes more action actually better than the 2nd one that came out 17 years ago their chemistry has improved a lot intense scenes it also got some original actors like Theresa Randle and Joe Pantoliano from the previous films which is awesome

The pace alternates between hyperkinetic action scenes and ponderous scenes that seem better suited to Lifetime.

Fun action packed movie!

Very worth watching.

See a lot of reviews saying it was "predictable" but Bad boys has never been good because if was "unpredictable".

I came to this movie with very low expectations, and I was pleasantly surprised..I enjoyed it throughout...

Not interesting at all, waste of time.

The story is well-built and the scenes are fascinating.

There are a few surprising shootouts that are filmed to make them look like one take, which definitely brings something pretty uncommon to this kind of formulaic action movies.

i thought the twist was stupid, dumb pointless writing is this now like Batman vs Superman where Batman didn'tknow Superman mother name?

In the end, it's the cast who saves the boring narrative.

Worth watching.

There's nothing here that messes with the rule book but there's no need for the film to do so with Lowery and Burnett already well established, while nicely for the film, there's enough surprises in the plot to keep things unpredictable, while Adil and Bilall showcase a strong sense of action craftsmanship as they stage some impressively intense set pieces across the sun drenched surrounds of the film.

Sorry mates, it's just stupid and boring.

Terrific action packed hilarious fun.

That's how you make the LAST RIDE, the film is worth your time from the car chases to the fighting scene, great humour (which got everyone in the Cinema laughing), thrilling action sequences, dangerous Villains and shootouts esp at the end is mind blowing.


Every scene in this film was action packed and full of comedy.

I wanted to leave 45 min in it was that bad.

10* reviews are more enjoyable than the movie itself .

Also a very good play by Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, well worth watching.

Boring and predictable with HDR over the top .

Who in the hell is so slow with a trigger that they're not going to be able to fire on someone who's pulling out a knife and taking time stabbing your friend?!

A quite entertaining film!

There is no script originality and lacks quality.

it was a waste of time.

fast paced and still had the feel of a bad boys movie.

A two hour snore fest.

They had an actress that could've been her updated type of character, but they went nowhere with her.

Of course Detective Burnett is drawn out of retirement and they are forced to work with a new Special Forces team called AMMO.

The villains this time are an extremely deadly cartel from Mexico that really wants to kill Mike Lowry for reasons that uncover later, this movie is action packed, shocking at times & full of mystery & excitement all wrapped up in a fun Action packed Cop thriller, a great movie & one of the best action films of the genre in years.

Entertaining addition to the franchise .

what a waste of time

The writing is so bad and predictable with cheap jokes flying everywhere.

Action scenes were gripping and one liners were comical.

This is all balanced out with gritty and entertaining action sequences.

Hilarious, emotional, action packed.

One of the worst movies so far this year.

Dull movie relying on violence and vulgarity to get by .

Apart from a few highlights scattered throughout even the action scenes were dull.

I sleep,, the worst movies i ever seen on movie theater.

A 2 hour film which in places dragged and one of the weakest silliest plots I've ever seen in a film which disappointed me.

They managed to turn a fun and slick action franchise into a tedious traumathon of old ladies' entertainment.

Entertaining .

Non-stop action packed fun time it's like a adrenaline bullet to the heart.

There is some truly stunning cinematography of the Miami skyline by Belgian cinematographer Robrecht Heyvaert, including a 'pull-back' drone shot from a conversation on the top of a building that is quite AWESOME!

Just another action and comedy movie ,very predictable story.

Cliché buddy cop movie with a big budget.

Otherwise it's just a boring rehash of everything that's gone before.

We enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed it and felt a little nostalgic.

And the lame, predictable and weak script.

Can we age gracefully into living a mundane life after all the excitement goes away.

They can still kick ass but there are other things important than an adrenaline driven life.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend to anyone

Enjoyed it more than expected.

The acting is bad, the story is terrible and predictable.

Bad Boys for Life will make you laugh at the jokes while the action sequences keep you on the edge of your seat.

Just done believe the rating movie is very predictable from start to end jokes said in the movie are too cliche and not funny at all lack of energy seems like any B movie writer wrote the script

Finally an action packed movie with plenty of laughs that dont have anything to do with comic books Glad to see Will & Martin back together Defitnetly a must see!

What a complete waste of time!

Bad Boys and Bad Boys 2 were both highly entertaining and fun, this was more of a paint-by-numbers action film with nothing new or special, sprinkled with a sort of old and tired version of Will Smith and Martin Lawerence, and a few cool elements that were never really explored.

If you want to just enjoy seeing these two together doing unpredictable stuff and somehow surviving, then this is for you.

Particularly the whimsical yet stylish cinematography by Robrecht Heyvaert (Adil and Bilall's 'Black') combined with Lorne Balfe's (Mission: Impossible - Fallout) rousing score in one scene that starts of in a club, to then evolve smoothly into a car chase to then turn into a gunfight and motorbike-explosive-neon-lit-extravaganza, is extremely well choreographed and reminiscent of last year's John Wick 3's horse riding motorbike chase through New York.

Well it was boring, too long and the forced banter between the 2 cops was hard to bear, like seriously.

The movie is very entertaining and visually impressive although the CGI indeed could have been better.

This while movie is predictable, unoriginal and just a ridiculous cash grab.

Disappointing and Cliche - Seemingly out of ideas .


Think of it like taken 3 where the family that they have killed are coming back for revenge kinda thing, but is definitely worth the watch.

Camerawork, editing and background music everything contributes to make this film very much watchable and enjoyable just like any Masala Bollywood Movie.

Boring and Predictable .

It blends thrilling action scenes with comedy elements.

The first was an enjoyable but formulaic romp which saw both stars establish and cement their dynamic chemistry.

The formula is a bit tired and cliche .

Enjoyable Return of the Bad Boys .

Cliche riddled movie that's been done to death.

The worst movie I watched in the past ten years.

Watered down characters, no real plot, just felt like it fed off the first two with no real direction.

Boring movie.

Boring, seen it all a million times before.

Despite a darker, grittier edge to the plot, there's still loads of effective, funny humour on screen to take the edge off, as well as an admittedly clever, unexpected plot twist at the end.

I expected to be more fun but it was predictable....

Well worth watching...

Boring in some places, slow pace in others and predictable.

Was it a waste of time and money?

)It's careful to deliver all the goods the audience is expecting, and so is wisely crammed full of fast paced, explosive action, slow, moody views of the Miami sideline, cool, slo-mo shots of the stars sliding their jackets on and the wise-cracking banter between the pair.

Funny, action packed, great antagonist, the best protagonist.

Better save your money and skip this movie.

Predictable, bad scenes, bad acting, don't waste your time...

Extemely predictable but enjoyable .

Apart from the twist that I mentioned above, the whole story is predictable.

Of course we do get the fiery finale, and this one involves a helicopter and a stunning hotel that's been left in ruins.

A thoroughly enjoyable addition to the Bad Boys franchise .

Aside from a Fast & Furious style ridiculous twist and some hit or miss jokes, Bad Boys For Life is a thrilling action film that will surely lead to more sequels, for better or worse.

This was the worst movie of Bad Boys.

It was so dull.

Man, this was tedious.

sluggish boring predictable movie .

Marcus got old and boring, Mike is still Mike and Vanessa Hudgens is pulling fashion show because there have to be more women in movies.

it's just an empty attempt at cashing in on a money making enterprise...

I think this is the worst movie I've ever seen...

If you can stand the ponderous and badly edited beginning, Bad Boys for life winds up into a decent attempt at an action movie.

Wasn't expecting much as these story lines tend not to pick back up after so long, however I was excited for the release and booked some tickets and I was pleasantly surprised, bad boys once again packed with all the goods I was on the edge of my seat with laugher and suspense the whole film!

Nowhere near as good as the 2 previous and especially bad because of Martin Lawrence so my score for this complete waste of time and money is,Rating 6 out of 10

The film is largely entertaining, with action pieces that are no longer so much in your face, but feel more personal and thrilling than before.

Worst movie ever (after the mist) .

The plot is boring and predictable, and it just plays on the succes of the previous movies with no substance what so ever.

The story isn't anything special and it takes a while to get going, but there's plenty of funny humour and the action scenes are exciting and well put together.

LIKES:Nostalgia The Feel Of Nineties In A Modern Package Good Character Use Fast Pace Decent Character Development Balance Of Comedy With Action Comedy Itself The Chemistry Of Smith And Martin LawrenceDISLIKES:Predictable For Much Of Film A Few Action Scenes Are Over the Top Or Too Quick A Few Comedic Moments Dropped Too Soon One Of The Main Antagonists Is Okay The VERDICT:How can this movie live up to the legacy before it?

If you get off on a steady stream of head shots, throats being cut (which covers the first 20 minutes or so), then this is probably one for you, plenty more tired death scenes to follow to keep you entertained)If you are looking for something a little more entertaining than this phoned in xerox of a movie, look elsewhere.

Absolutely worth watching.

Far fetched at times but Entertaining .

Refreshing and entertaining .

That gotta be fake.. its honestly one of the worst movies I've seen in the last couple of years

The car chases, even when containing a few too many cuts, are relatively easy to follow, and they pack that necessary adrenaline rush.

And so exciting and a lot of twist and unexpected ones.

Copied and predictable.

of course they move a little slower idiots, they're older.

It was boring right from the start and using cheap cgi made it even worser.

The supporting cast was good though however and overall it was an entertaining film.

But recently rewatching it as an adult, it's actually quite dumb but still entertaining.

Boring Rubbish .

While Mike still has got his adrenaline going, Marcus is all set for a retirement life as granddad.

Good entertaining movie .

Ridiculously bad acting coupled with boring outdated cold comedy.

Dont waste your time it was free for me.

Now this is a sequel worth watching.

Unless the movie is rock solid gold, I get bored after 90 minutes...

True it wasn't a commercial disaster (raking in at the time of writing about 150% of budget), but it's still a film on a plane for me that, even if I'm bored, I'll say "nah" to.

From start to finish, it really was an emotionally connected movie, I was on the edge of my seat, and it had a dark twist to it.

However this piece feels a little contrived as it steers more towards pleasing a wider audience than it does towards appealing to the original Bad Boys fans and fanatics.

Too slow, too long and racist.

This is one of the worst movies ever , acting so tasteless and actually its very obvious that they are not even trying to act for-god sakes .

The story line was weak, dialogue very cliche and the ammo characters seemed out of place.

It was really that pathetically predictable.

No scenario, no story, no nothing.

The way he directs his action sequences is incredibly choppy, filled with questionable CGI, very hard to follow, and we all know his passion for exploding everything.

For example, they have made this film entertaining for fans of the film series.

Dumb, stupid, but also fun and entertaining .

At the end, Bad Boys for Life is entertaining, good and it makes time pass in a snap of fingers; a good movie that entertains without too many pretensions.

While it was trying to act serious there where many funny elements that made it very enjoyable to watch, with a couple of new characters that made it more than two guys fighting crime.

It was action packed and hilarious like the other two.

The storyline where the hero's son grew up to kill his own father unknowingly, is so cliche.

Bad boys for life is entertaining and gritty, with intense moments.


Too much of boring conversations.

The 1st 2 sequels were still both-thumbs-up, thrilling, full of action ...

The formulaic, cliche, soap opera story is straight-up ridiculous at some points, and it carries such an aura of predictability that when it tries to introduce an emotional twist, it merely becomes absurd.

It's funny, action packed, and just an overall great movie.

I enjoyed it

Predictable youngster team coming in (even singing "Bad Boys" song to be stopped by the boys).

The action scenes are excellent, vibrant, thrilling, expertly choreographed, executed and photographed.

The story is nothing new, and to be honest i stop watching an hour within the movie i was so bored.

It was unbearable.

Style This film has really exciting and hard hitting action scenes, the films hand to hand combat is the best in the franchise and Will Smith delivers even when he is around the 50 years old range.

The acting is boring, the writing is horrible and story is even worse.

It's action packed and will have you laughing through it all.

Predictable .

Bad Boys for Life is an incredible third installment and welcome return to the franchise that's fast paced, surprisingly emotional and more mature than it's predecessors.

Weak and very predictable storytelling.

I walked in thinking this was like the previous installments but it got old, predictable and the script is so boring I walked out before the end.

Seriously don't waste your time.

Bad overacting, boring jokes, unnecessary cursing and a plot which doesnt make sense in the least bit.

Entertaining for sure .

Corny humour and a thin predictable plot that we have seen done so many times before .

Dont waste your time on this!

The action scenes are boring and stupid.

Much better than Bad Boys 2, if you turn your brain off all the way, it's an enjoyable movie.

This engrossing movie kicks-off with killingly funny moment set off in a car at the aisle of Miami Beach where Mike nailed the steering wheel with his driving force towards the hospital and I think without a speedometer(hehee!

Annoyingly boring.

Bad Boys for Life is a thoroughly enjoyable addition to the Bad Boys franchise.

After 25 years of being together, 'bad boys' Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) are at the crossroads of their exciting lives.

The action is satisfying and coherent and the references, callbacks and other nods were solid and exciting.

After more than 10 years since then,they released a new chapter, that was completely unexpected.

Regardless of if they are bouncing jokes off of each other and sharing a laugh or verbally mocking one another, this dynamic duo brings every moment to life in a riveting way that will have audiences smiling and laughing until the very end.

A Rare Long-Delayed Sequel That Knows How to Pay Homage While Still Being Entertaining .

This one was slow to start and focused more on the drama side of things.

I was really shocked that they killed off a long standing, main character of sorts so very entertaining.

Genuinely funny, surprisingly heartfelt, and entertaining from beginning-end, Bad Boys For Life has to be one of the biggest surprises of the last few years.

However, what didn't work was the convoluted shootouts, two specifically, one in a warehouse garage and the other in an old hotel that was confusing.

Totally worth watching .

Also i feel martin absence (after his daugther wedding until He fot called in the middle of telenovela) filled with bland story.

Also poorly filmed, empty speeches and cheap previsible sentimentality scenes.

Entertaining, so long as you've got a few drinks in ya.

It's more action packed than the second, and it's hilariously funny.

But wanted to leave halfway through.

It was strange as I was bored at times.

An Unexpected Surprise .

But overall the movie was really entertaining.

Enjoyable, comedic and action-packed movie.

It has some minor pacing issues and the humor doesn't always work, but the action sequences kept it enjoyable enough and the chemistry between Smith and Lawrence is the movies bright spot.

The film tried to be bigger than it actually was, especially at 2 Hours & 3 Min run time it definitely could of been 1 Hour 30 Min run time if it wasn't for the over thought parts, so i felt like they pushed the family side way more than it should of done for a film like this, i didn't go into this film expecting a deep family issue with Will Smith, like honestly, its meant to be a action / comedy fun film, they really dragged out them parts & just didn't feel right in this film which the group i was with all agreed, its almost felt like they copied that family issue from other films.

I've seen better acting in B movies, the plot is predictable, the jokes are not funny.

So don't waste your time.

It was at times very funny, with enjoyable acting from Will Smith.


, seriously this feels really pointless.

Fast paced start, and it keeps that pace throughout.

To have watched him in After Earth and Gemini Man, to then to see this waste of my time was disappointing.

Great enjoyable movie and all bad boys fans should love it.

If the main objective of this movie's existence is to make us forget our uneventful lives for two hours by treating us to a proportionate dosage of action and comedy, I'd say Adil and Bilall have done a more-than-serviceable job.

The set pieces were incredible, leading to creative and exciting action sequences and also making Florida look amazing.


Worth watching it for sure.

Some good unexpected plot twists.

Hilarious and action packed .

These action packed blockbusters aren't usually known for their story, I thought it had a nice curious twist and kept pulling you along for a very enjoyable nostalgic and classic Will Smith and Martin Lawrence flick.

The first hour of the movie you can skip , Martin Lawrence was just there to get paid , Will Smith is trying so hard to act and save the movie but the fact is these guys are older now and spending time with Martin Lawrence character finding God and all this is stupid and waste of time on it .

While the jokes are great and essential in a movie like this, they however can get too repetitive and I think this film would benefit if it wouldn't stay on the same jokes for too long.

The story is involving with a unexpected and emotional twist.

Still action packed with a comedic trade between the two.

To make a mindless entertaining action flick, the lighthearted tone has to be well-established from the get-go.

And the change in the plot was stupid and cliche.

Younger fans might simply be bored.

Predictable but enjoyable .

Nearly everything in this movie seemed forced and contrived, especially the attempts at jokes and humor, which didn't make me laugh in most cases.

The situations are absurd and poorly executed while the plot is sloppy and uninteresting.

Boring, cringe, predictable repetitive hollywood crap.

I was literally on the edge of my seat the entire time!

The acting is top notch, the Comedy is Great, and the Action scenes Are entertaining to watch.

I fell asleep about 2-3 times, while waiting for the action.

Boring 1980s Movie .

Fun, Fast, and Entertaining .

The script was never good enough for our stars to sign up for, but in hands of Joe Carnahan (Narc), Peter Craig (The Town) and first time screenplay writer Chris Bremner, we get a fast paced, action packed and to the brim filled with jokes story that keeps your attention for the full two hours.

That first half hour put me to Zzzzzzzz.

Really entertaining .

I love where they took into account characters from 2003's BadBoys2 and continued stories to lighten up the movie and bring soft edges to something that is actually pretty intense.

Overall a great time at the movies and worth watching if you are a Will Smith fan.

Enjoyable sequel .

Also their chemistry together is once again really strong and it will keep you highly entertained throughout this exciting film.

They had a convincing motivation to go against Mike, and their action scenes and character development was fantastic making them compelling and interesting villains to be invested in throughout.

It had me laughing just has much as it had me all teary eyed, all in all a great movie, not giving it a 10 because some parts are very dragged out but it leaves you guessing 90% of the time, very unpredictable, I wonder if they will have a spin off seeing as though they have so many new actors

I like all will smith's movies, he is great in all his movies, but this one both Will Smith and Mark Lawrence took awhile to fit into their characters (about half the movie), the movie was very slow paced till we almost shut it off but decided to push on, personally I think the film editor did a poor job, the whole first part of the movie could of been cut out completely, or edited to be a lot shorter, we got the point, then there is the I'm old cliche done over and over, family drama.

The most exciting parts was AMMO, which they trimmed their role in the film so they wouldn't upstage Will and Martin, which they do.

Don't waste your time on this movie watch the first 2 movies and stop at that.

The film features a shallow plot with story beats that are quite frankly laughable at times but is enjoyable due to the fun dynamics that are on display by the cast and crew.

Bad Boys For Life is terrible, Smith and Lawrences characters have become incredibly cliche parodies of their former selves, which was already a pretty cliche buddy-cop dynamic.

The plain truth of the matter is, that I set out to watch "Birds Of Prey" , got held up in some seriously unexpected, mad, traffic ; and ended up having to settle for "Bad Boys III", instead.

Boring, Childish, Too Safe, Not Funny .

The ending was somewhat formulaic with Aretas dying, Mike making amends with Armando and the latter redeeming himself by saving Marcus and subsequently choosing to end his criminal path.

It was purely entertaining with a good story.

Action Packed and Funny Addition to the series...

The third Bad boys movie was really entertaining as far as action and humor can be in these kind of movies.

Enjoyable Action Film with Great Characters and Humor.

Overall I think it's worth the watch if you're a fan of the franchise and don't expect too much.

This movie was so boring, and I'm so glad I didn't pay a dime to watch it, or rather - struggle not to fall asleep for two full hours.

The ending action sequence is kind of bland and the use of green screen is obvious.

Don't waste your time, or do waste your time.

Funny, Full of Action and Entertaining .

Also, the story is actually a lot more compelling compared the first two movies by making it feel more personal instead of "hot girl gets kidnap by a bad person".

It is still entertaining and exciting.

This is the best piece of " hookum " I have seen in a long time and I thoroughly enjoyed it and , given the troubles the world is going through at the moment , I cant recommend it enough .

This is the last one I'll waste my money on.

Tiresome & Predictable Action Movie .

I'm going to give this movie an 8/10, it is worth watching, and it was enjoyable the whole way through!

It takes the steps necessary to be enjoyable with an edge without stepping on too many toes.

The newcomers from the AMMO unit being Hudgens, Ludwig, and Melton all do a serviceable job of being entertaining more often than not, despite being completely cliched one-note characters.

Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah have portrayed this film in a somewhat quieter way, but still manage to fill the film well with entertaining action scenes.

An enjoyable action film that really plays to the characters and lead actors strengths.

So don't waste your time and money on this movie.

I agree with some reviewers that the plot seemed predictable at half of the film, but the setup was entertaining and the last third was not what I had expected and had me at the edge of my seat at times.

Might be the worst movie I've ever seen.

The plot is absurd, the jokes rarely land, the expanded squad characters are bland and lack any emotional investment.

I mean Martin Lawrence and Will Smith are fun to watch together, and have this budding chemistry that makes the films work, and action scenes are awesome, but the villains and the plot in the last two films pretty much went nowhere.

Will Smith turns in a more standard, but still enjoyable, performance as his detective sidekick as they both investigate a hitman who seems to be randomly targeting Miami citizens for assassination.

All that cliché plus bad acting from the AMMO director woman made me sick.

The rest says for itself it's a very predictable movie with no humour at all, predictable bad guys and lame new cops.

Entertaining "Shoot-Em-Up" with 2 charismatic leads .

Such a monstrous waste of time.

It was refreshing to see finally something out of the boring superhero trend.

Usually action movies are fully action packed with less focus on a story and less dialogue.

Yes its predictable as most action movies are.

I really enjoyed this movie but i must admit it went on for too long and they dragged it out a lot

Featuring the series' trademark action of well-done car chases, fight scenes, explosions and snappy dialogues the film further cements Will Smith's and Martin Lawrence's reputation as one of the best partnerships in film history where their chemistry onscreen is undimmed after a quarter of a century.

A lifeless, pointless acting from his side.

Funny and action packed with a good storyline!

Having enjoyed 1-2, then to hear a 3rd instalment I wasn't sure how good it would be but having casted the same actors as before with the likes of "Ronnie" and chief inspector, it was really enjoyable with some laugh out loud moments and great action sequences, really good watch and in some ways better then the previous ones dealing with real issues and loyalty which has always been key to the leading character, something that gave it a lot of heart and weight, great watch!

"Bad Boys for Life" resurrects the dormant 'Bad Boys' franchise with an adrenaline boost of terrific action, wisecracking chemistry between the leads and also the new team, and a villain and plot that is better than the first two films.

Bad: Forced and Contrived .

The film's narrative and execution remains loyal to the usual trappings of a testosterone-led action entertainer with shocking developments that will often keep you on the edge.

Too many slow angled camera views, failed funny scenes, and flat emotionless acting.

It did have too many forced jokes in my opinion, but despite that it definitely was an enjoyable ride.

Cliche creme brûlée .

The film's action sequences were also the strongest of the franchise, with fast paced and hard-hitting sequences that kept you on the edge of your seat for a large majority of the time.

Martin Lawrence delivers a few funny lines, Vanessa Hudgens Looks stunning.

And the surprising plot twist of Rita being the only women Mike ever loved was really interesting, and for Armando to be Mike's son that he never knew about, set up an extremely compelling conflict between the bond between father and son and what's right and wrong when someone you love does something bad.

This movie was able to revive the funny and entertaining charisma between Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.

The jokes fall way wide of the mark as they are so predictable and the twist is ludicrous.

This is a surprisingly entertaining time at the movies, which is the best you can hope for.

I almost cut myself during, and upon the tragic ending of this deeply suspenseful movie....

" And the AMMO team is linear and boring.

I Walked in with low expectation, walked out satisfied.

The chemistry of Martin Lawrence and Will Smith is why this third film is very good in my opinion, the plot of the film is not as important to fans of this franchise , this is a action packed comedy thriller that deserved all praise it gets, good music, loved the cinematography, the action sequences were well staged, the comedy timing of Martin Lawrence is great in this film, Will Smith gets to do some great action stunts in this film, I liked the Villains in this movie also, all the elements of a good weekend at the movies, I will re watch this movie again, it was entertaining and funny, I hope we get another sequel.

And I would love to see more sequels if they can keep it exciting.

Fast paced plot, good action sequences, most of the humour is pretty good.

This movie is so predictable and boring.

Senate exoneration by nuking Sony (the official propaganda arm of a Japanese Ruling Clique still sore at losing a WWII which THEY began with their infamous Sneak Attack on Hawaiian Tourist Attractions such as the USS Arizona Memorial) and Mexico, as well, for good measure.

Just a dull, humourless, cheap, rehash of old plots and tired formulas.

This movie is a waste of money.

It's a giant adrenaline rush with lots of laughs, and some unexpected twists along the way.

One of the worst movies I've recently watched.

The worst movie I've seen in ages.

Ultimately they turned a fast paced military ops level action movie into a family drama at best.

a lot of unexpected parts.

I would have gladly walked out of this unbearable display of cliches had I not been with my wife.

It was formulaic and generic.

Decent movie, had a good laugh I recommend when bored

This movie is boring, predictable, bad story, bad characters bad acting.
