Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are back and ready to roll in Bad Boys for Life as they decide to muscle up one last time to take down some dangerous new bad guys while bringing all kinds of action to the blockbuster screen with them.

The Bad Boys, Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett are back together for one last ride in the highly anticipated Bad Boys for Life.

Since 1995, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence have brought serious fly style to the big screen in the Bad Boys franchise, and now in the long-awaited third entry in the franchise, they bring that fly action style that has become a hallmark of the franchise. Up and coming directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah take control here and inject a new Millennial edge and flair to the franchise and ground the film’s rhythm in explosive new action sequences and fuse a connection between old war dogs Marcus and Mike, and a hotshot new team of youngsters designated AMMO, resulting in some wicked action set pieces. Action junkies will enjoy this one as the screen is filled with big guns, bigger explosions, some impressive vehicular set pieces and perfect comedic moments that cranks up the blockbuster experience.

Seeing Smith and Lawrence back together on screen is a lot of fun, and for these two lifetime partners and best friends things are about to change. For their entire careers Mike and Marcus have lived by their ‘ride together, die together, bad boys for life’ philosophy and these words, and the significance and meaning behind them, is tested more than ever before. Both men are at a point in their lives where the possibility of a different path lies before them, but when an unexpected tragedy strikes they’ve got to roll up their sleeves and go to work. Both actors get to have fun with their roles in Bad Boys for Life and long-time fans of the franchise will enjoy the thrills that come from seeing Mike and Marcus back together again.

Alongside the return of Mike and Marcus, Arbi and Fallah ground the film in a much more aggressive and assertive way and Bad Boys for Life has a considerable swagger that it throws up on the screen, both in regards to its action and its much more muscular Miami location. In terms of the viewing experience, Bad Boys for Life is loaded to the brim with action and it’s pretty damn gnarly as well. Bullets fly and bombs go off, and Will Smith gets in on the beat downs here. Of all of the franchise entries, Bad Boys for Life is the most intense and some pretty gritty moments will certainly make audiences jump back in their seats. It’s an intense experience and if you’re looking for a film that will crank up your adrenaline then you’ll certainly find it here in Bad Boys for Life.

Bad Boys for Life does one of action cinemas coolest franchises proud and long-time fans, along with those new to the franchise, will enjoy its testosterone-infused energy, along with the quintessential buddy cop cool that only Will Smith and Martin Lawrence can provide.
