Movie Review - Bad Boys for Life
They're back - older, wiser, and one wants to retire. Mike (Will Smith) is still a bachelor, working old school, driving fast, and not wanting things to change. Marcus (Martin Lawrence) is ready to retire, he's got a new grandson, and is tired. He's made it fairly safely through his twenty five years - he's done.
But, there's some revenge kills happening and Mike's on the list. The young crew, AMMO, a special police division, are researching cartel action, trying to piece it together. Mike and Marcus have that banter we love and they are in for this last ride together. Hope it's not to die together.
Bad Boys for Life is a mix of crazy blow 'em up, serious friendship, cop history, old school techniques versus new age technology - all against the backdrop of Miami - blue water, fast cars, bikinis, and glitz.
Ray and I enjoyed this piece of fluff. Plenty of funny lines about old age (we're talking 50s here, but in cop life that's a long time). Smith and Lawrence have great comic timing and you can tell they had fun making this film. Bad Boys for Life - hug it out. Then change that grand baby's diaper.
