Before I get started I know might seem like a week of bashing Will Smith because his recent film Gemini Man is becoming such flop and then this week they decided release the first trailer for Bad Boys 3 so it only made sense. I have watched this film so much since it came out in 2003 and before I did my research on this film I have to be honest I thought this film made a lot more money then it did, truth be told this film would basically be another flop under Will Smith yet it was able to spawn a third film granted many many years and the film will be the first film not to feature Micheal Bay which should actually help the film.
The film follows Mike and Marcus again this time going up against the biggest Drug Dealer Johnny Tapia who is bringing ecstasy into the city, the only problem is that every time the cops have a case against him, they lose which forces Mike and Marcus to do whatever it takes to find enough evidence against him so they can put him away for good. Things like always don’t go as plan and forces them to go undercover and deal with shootouts and everything else. Will Smith shows off that he can still fight and run and drive and shoot like he did in the first film and Marcus continues to be himself. The best part of the film is of course the laughs that Will and Martin bring when they are together, it is almost like they feed off of each other which is the magic of the film. There are classic scenes like at the Electronics store where it seems like they are talking about their sexual relationship then the best scene where they gang up on Reggie. That scene alone might be the most famous scene. In The end the gang which the film introduces Marcus’s Sister kills Tapia in Cuba and the case is closed.
Now the story was basic, there really wasn’t anything to think about , you know what they were going to do. Actor was average but at times was way overboard but nothing that would have hurt the film. The action was there like in any Micheal bay film it will never be boring, of course the laughs were there as well. Hard to believe this movie failed to make 300 million and yet here we are getting ready for the third and final film. In the end the film seem to get better over the first however in the end the grade will be a B plus or about 85 percent. If you haven’t seen please do it worth a watch!
