Enjoyable, comedic and action-packed movie.

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

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

Seriously don't waste your time.

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.

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

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

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.

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


An enjoyable Friday night movie.

The supporting actors were one dimensional yet exciting.

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

Entertaining .

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

Fun, Fast, and Entertaining .

Highly entertaining .

But wanted to leave halfway through.

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

Probably not, but an entertaining one.

Every cliche you can imagine.

Long and boring .

Still action packed with a comedic trade between the two.

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

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

This is a bad version of bad boys, bad scripts, bad acting and so boring.

Action Packed .

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

You can tell El Arbi & Fallah actually cared about this movie, unlike Michael Bay, who just threw in big choppy action, with cliche characters, and basically said "have fun".

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

Funny and action packed with a good storyline!

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

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

Dont waste ur time, watch the first two and be done with it cuz this one will make u puke.

Highly recommend it!!

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

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

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

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

The story is predictable and filled with cliches.

Entertaining addition to the franchise .

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

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 wouldnt even waste my time if Will wasnt there.

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!!

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


Entertaining Popcorn film .

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

Boring Rubbish .

Absolutely worth watching.

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.

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.

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

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

All in all this movie was pretty boring and I wouldn't rewatch it like I did when I enjoyed the first two.

Felt the film dragged a bit towards the end and was a bit cringe/cliche/trying too hard in moments.

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.

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.

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

The movie is hilarious, engaging and full of entertainment.

Action Packed and Funny Addition to the series...

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.

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

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

So don't waste your time.

otherwise a predictable waste of time...

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.

The story is involving with a unexpected and emotional twist.

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.

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

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

The formula is a bit tired and cliche .

Hilarious, emotional, action packed.

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

Today movies are to boring to watch they are good if you wan't to fall asleep.

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.

It was so dull.

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.

Worth watching .

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

This was the worst movie of Bad Boys.

The love interest was bland if anything.

a lot of unexpected parts.

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.

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

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

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?

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.


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.

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.

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

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


An Unexpected Surprise .

Dumb, stupid, but also fun and entertaining .

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

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

Dont waste your time on this!

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.

Uninteresting and tries too hard.

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

A two hour snore fest.

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

This movie is a waste of money.

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

Younger fans might simply be bored.

Very worth watching.

The action scenes are boring and stupid.

Waste of time, don't bother watching.

Boring, Childish, Too Safe, Not Funny .

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

Don't waste you time.

But as a standalone movie, it is an enjoyable action-packed movie.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend to anyone

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

A thoroughly enjoyable addition to the Bad Boys franchise .

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

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

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

Enjoyable sequel .

That first half hour put me to Zzzzzzzz.

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

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

Enjoyed it more than expected.

Cliché buddy cop movie with a big budget.

Good entertaining movie .

Worth watching it for sure.

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

Boring, seen it all a million times before.

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

Far fetched at times but Entertaining .

Boring and Predictable .

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

It blends thrilling action scenes with comedy elements.

Review: When I heard that the dynamic duo, Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) were returning to the big screen, I did think that it was going to be two geriatric cops, shooting guns on there zimmer frames, but it was surprisingly full of intense action.

Now this is a sequel worth watching.

Boring and repetitive.

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

The rest is just ruined because of a weak script and a predictable storyline.

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

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!

The worst movie I watched in the past ten years.

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

Really entertaining .

Ultimately, it just got boring.

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

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

Waste of time.

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

Was it a waste of time and money?

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

)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.

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!

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

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

Pointless sequel .

Ridiculously bad acting coupled with boring outdated cold comedy.

10* reviews are more enjoyable than the movie itself .

Boring movie.

Did people forget that the average day for a cop is pretty much boring?

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

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

Bad jokes, bad story, predictable.

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

One of the worst movies so far this year.

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.

Not interesting at all, waste of time.

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

sluggish boring predictable movie .

Quite possibly THE worst movie ever made.

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".

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

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

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

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

Too slow, too long and racist.

Way too long for its own good.

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

Predictable but enjoyable .

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

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

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

A quite entertaining sequel.

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.

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

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

A quite entertaining film!

It was unbearable.

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

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.

Worth watching!

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Entertaining enough to watch.

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

Somebody needed the money or something, it's just boring none of the old magic is there.

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

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

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).

Weak and very predictable storytelling.

The rest of the movie is rather slow.

And whoever wrote the script decided that the most relatable thing to do is to just throw a bunch of pointless and irrelevant mentions of youtube and 4chan, which is just awkward to sit through.


The story is way too predictable and generally disappointing.

I Walked in with low expectation, walked out satisfied.

And the lame, predictable and weak script.

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.

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

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

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

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.


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

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 .

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

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

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

Funny, Full of Action and Entertaining .

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

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.

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

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.

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

"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.

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.

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

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 .

I really enjoyed it and felt a little nostalgic.

Extemely predictable but enjoyable .

The second film was not great, but it had some very enjoyable action sequences, and plenty of excess.

Very boring could not resist to watch it until final!!!

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

"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.

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

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

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

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.

It is still entertaining and exciting.

Save your money don't watch film

what a waste of time

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

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

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?!

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.

Waste of time and money.

It was strange as I was bored at times.

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

Entertaining .

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

We enjoyed it.

it was a waste of time.

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.

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.

In order to make the reflection and aging of Smith's character more engaging and real, it was important that Lawrence could be his anchor in a way that is grounded and funny.

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.

Totally worth watching .

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

It is definitely worth watching.

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

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

Great cast, engaging script, great action scenes.

Be Entertaining, and BB4L delivered!

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

that's how boring it really Got.

Too much of boring conversations.

Worth watching.

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

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

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.

Predictable with a terrible story line.

This movie is so predictable and boring.

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.

Really entertaining.

It was OK.. but pretty predictable.

I personally enjoyed it a lot.

Hilarious and action packed .

, seriously this feels really pointless.

Predictable .

Dont waste your time it was free for me.

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

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

Copied and predictable.

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

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.

Started as a five ended as a waste of time .

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

Entire film full of quite intense action scene!

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

Entertaining enough .

Tiresome & Predictable Action Movie .

It was really that pathetically predictable.

The visual effects on point and the stunts where stunning.

Certainly not this kind, secondly if I didn't enjoy the first 2 Bad Boys movies I wouldn't have even watched this one, similar casts and scenarios to the other 2 and it's a Jerry Bruckheimer movie so don't expect a heavy drama, in conclusion it's an enjoyable action time filler with a few laughs along the way

One of the worst movies I've recently watched.

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

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

Refreshing and entertaining .

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.

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

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.

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👌🏾

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

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

Waste of time .

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

Bland Boys For Life .

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

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.

Cliche creme brûlée .

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!

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.

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


Just another action and comedy movie ,very predictable story.

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.

Hilarious and nail bitingly action packed.

This was surprisingly good and exciting.

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

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

Man, this was tedious.

Boring 1980s Movie .

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.

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

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

Furthermore, without the same physical form as before, the action sequences lack more intense pursuits or more realistic fight scenes, without so much editing, as in John Wick, for example.

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

It was hilarious and action packed.

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.

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.

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

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.

Cliche riddled movie that's been done to death.

It was formulaic and generic.

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.

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.

Save your money.

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

Entertaining for sure .

" And the AMMO team is linear and boring.

Moreover, the first two installments directed by Michael Bay bore, at least, an authorial stamp, as distasteful as I might find it; they were movies demonstrably made by someone--dare I say, an artist--with a unique vision.

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

Enjoyable Friday night at home large screen movie .

Borderline unwatchable .

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.

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


A lifeless, pointless acting from his side.

It was action packed and hilarious like the other two.

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.

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

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.

Everything predictable.

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

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

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.

Predictable yet entertaining .

What a complete waste of time!

The film does have some exciting action sequences.

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

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.

Worst movie ever (after the mist) .

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

And the change in the plot was stupid and cliche.

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

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.

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

It was action packed as usual.

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

I enjoyed it

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

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.

Worth watching this movie.

17 years waiting for the third instalment so this film was always going to be enjoyable because I I like the franchise.

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

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

There is no script originality and lacks quality.

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

Terrific action packed hilarious fun.

It is definitely worth the watch and rewatch.

1 was great, 2 was ok, Bad Boys for Life was just boring.

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

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

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

Disappointing, not as good as the others, bit dull and predictable

They leaned away from the cliché, drug villains, and added in new villains with a better motive.

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

Easily the most predictable movie ever.

Annoyingly boring.

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

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

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

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

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

It was purely entertaining with a good story.

Bad: Forced and Contrived .

Such a monstrous waste of time.

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

Decent movie, had a good laugh I recommend when bored

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sorry mates, it's just stupid and boring.

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.

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.

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.

Some good unexpected plot twists.

Action scenes were gripping and one liners were comical.

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.

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

Yet, in this and every other way, "Bad Boys for Life," directed by others, is a derivative, watered-down imitation of Bay's style coupled with the same formulaic franchise building polluting most of cinema recently.

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.

Predictable threequal .

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

This is an entertaining 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.

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

It was entertaining.

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

I didn't get to see the whole thing, as I got bored after a bit.

Surprisingly Entertaining for a third sequel .

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

Fun action packed movie!

A large chunk of the movie was really boring filler.

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

He is annoying with repetitive, bad jokes.

This is funny, action packed and very entertaining.

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

That said this movie was good and entertaining

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

Well worth watching...

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

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

Worst movie I've ever seen .

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

Better save your money and skip this movie.

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.

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

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


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

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

The worst movie I've seen in ages.

Might be the worst movie I've ever seen.

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 is well-built and the scenes are fascinating.

Enjoyed it very much.

Enjoyable Return of the Bad Boys .

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

Fast paced start, and it keeps that pace throughout.

Bad movie very slow .

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!

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.

No scenario, no story, no nothing.

Enjoyable Action Film with Great Characters and Humor.

Boring, cringe, predictable repetitive hollywood crap.

Disappointing and Cliche - Seemingly out of ideas .

Yes its predictable as most action movies are.

But overall the movie was really entertaining.

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!

Boring and predictable with HDR over the top .

Entertaining, genuinely funny and, to the general surprise, emotional, the film rescues old-fashioned entertainment - when Hollywood still cared about more than effects and action.
