Bad Boys for Life is full of bullets, explosions, and quips, but is it any good? That depends what you’re looking for. Here are our picks for the five best — and five worst — things in this long-dormant action franchise’s latest installment.
It’s been more than 15 years since they last teamed up, but Will Smith and Martin Lawrence haven’t lost a step. By this point in their careers, both actors have their shticks down pat, and in Bad Boys for Life they deploy their respective charms with military precision. The action scenes are nice to look at, but the banter between the two leads is where you’ll find the real fireworks.
When the script is clunky and the dialogue cliched, Smith and Lawrence still make it work. In a different world, Smith and Lawrence would’ve been a modern Bob Hope and Bing Crosby. Since that didn’t happen, we’ll take whatever we can get.
