With a boom, Bad Boys For Life begins. Veteran police officers Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) and Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) are travelling at breakneck speed in Mike’s brand-new Porsche.
They appear to be pursuing someone while mouthing cheesy language.
However, we also notice several police cars after them, which makes us quite perplexed. They’re actually rushing to the hospital because Marcus is about to become a grandfather, it turns out.
Marcus’ priorities shift slightly as a result of the birth of his daughter’s kid. Mike wants to carry on their good cop-bad policeman routine indefinitely, but he is sick of being a tough cop and wants to retire.
When Mike is shot and killed by a shooter in a mask, everything change. Rita (Paola Nez), Mike’s ex-girlfriend, is to lead the special task team tasked with handling such threats, according to Captain Howard (Joe Pantoliano).

Mike wants to lead the inquiry himself when the new team makes little progress and he is released from the hospital.
The murderer continues to target members of the court and law enforcement, and things reach a breaking point when the captain is also shot to death.
Because of this, Marcus has a change of heart and decides to ride down with his companion one final time to do the job.
Michael Bay made his film debut with the 1995 release of the first Bad Boys. It established the model for all other action film series keeping the flame of the buddy movie genre with its tough heroes, fast vehicles, high-octane action, and some wacky camera angles.
It wouldn’t be incorrect to state that Bad Boys served as direct inspiration for Robert Cohen’s The Fast And The Furious (2001). The new movie, directed by Belgians Adil and Billal, pays homage to the first movie while also serving as a type of parody of it. Since then, 25 years have gone.
The two heroes had outlived their best years.Martin Lawrence no longer receives leading roles in movies. In the 2011 comedy Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son, he played the lead character for the last time.
Although he occasionally receives prominent parts, Will Smith is no longer regarded as a new prince of Hollywood. As a result, Lawrence showcases his humorous talents while Smith is mostly given control of the action scenes.
Even after all these years together, the two stars still get along well, and it comes out in their performances. Apart from the action and the crude one-liners, what keeps you watching is their sincere love for one another, which gives the movie an emotional core.
In their scenes together, they complement one another. like the amusing scene Lawrence is in the spotlight of inside an aircraft. He makes outrageous jokes that humiliate other passengers and would have gotten him a warning from the personnel in the real world.
It is evident that Mike is beyond his prime since the antagonist Armando Armas always kicks him in the behind (Jacob Scipio). Compared to the prior two instalments, the current movie has a lot more blood and gore.
The action set pieces are creatively filmed, and our favourite scene is the one when Smith and Lawrence are being pursued by thugs while riding a motorcycle with a sidecar.
The directors have included a pleasant unexpected twist to tie everything together, provide closure for the evil guys, and leave a door open to continue the franchise.
The movie is quite nostalgic, so watch it. The two stars are still funny, and their antics will transport you to the era when buddy police movies were a mainstay of Hollywood.
