We had to wait a long time to get this addition to the franchise. It didn't let viewers down. Martin Lawrence and Will Smith did it again. I also have a huge crush on Vanessa Hudgens, and was pleasantly surprised to see that she was a part of the cast!
Really good movie! Very worthy addition to the Bad Boys series. I recommend it.
Also if you're going to pick it up, get the steelbook of its still avaliable. The artwork on it is really cool in person. The pictures on here don't do it justice.
I didn't expect from this movie but I was gonna watch either way because I'm a huge Martin Lawrence fan and a fan of the Bad Boys franchise. I grew up to them even with the movies being spread so far apart. I can relate to how much they changed. When I finally watched this movie, I was brought back to the same feelings I had from the first two. A different pair of directors is also taking it into new directions. I can see this franchise being made into the next Fast and the Furious franchise with the addition of a younger cast and a new team to work alongside. No spoilers but I see that as a welcome approach especially showcasing the Miami culture in movies. Speaking of Miami, the design of the Steelbook gives off a Miami vibe. It's the perfect package to this movie and matches excellently with the first two Steelbooks if you have them. You'll enjoy this set if you're a fan of the series and action movies in general. Cheers!
This was another excellent 4K movie with stunning action scenes. An exceptional (SteelBook) to add to the Bad Boys collection of movies. The art work is great throughout the front & the back. I just which they would use a plastic sleeve to protect the SteelBook instead of a flimisy piece of paper. The digital copy also comes in 4K. Excellent performances again by Will Smith & Martin Lawrence. The ending could lead us to another Bad Boys for Life movie. I had no trouble with this 4K disc stopping, pausing, freezing, or skipping. I experienced this movie the best when watched in the dark, it seems the dark scenes stood out more.
If you enjoyed the previous Bad Boy movies, this one is more of the same except the guys are older and maybe a little wiser. Expect the same tension, action, and excitement. The movie doesn't depart too much from the same formula. Don't come with high theatrical expectations. This is a fun film. A guilty pleasure. An escape. You know what you're going to get based upon the label on the cover. Sit back and enjoy the ride.
We ride together we die together Bad Boys 4 Life!!
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
A long time coming but we finally got a third Bad Boys film! This film probably has the best story and stakes of all the films in the trilogy. The film isn't as funny as the first two and not as action packed as Bad Boys 2 but still has good action and it's laughs from Martin. Felt good to see Martin and Will together again looking forward to Bad Boys 4 hopefully the wait isn't long.
