Perfect development of the Bad Boys characters
14 May 2020 | by sarahbriggs79See all my reviews

To anyone giving this a low score, I can only assume you were not around when the original movie came out. Having grown up in the time period between the first in the franchise and this film I am really able to appreciate the real life timeline development of the characters. Knowing the difference between Will Smith and Martin Lawrence's characters you can see that this film perfectly depicts how they would have changed over the years. The film still has great chemistry between them, loads of action and the dry humour you would expect. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend to anyone
