Why all the hate?
20 April 2020 | by melissacarvell-45535See all my reviews

This film to me showed the most growth. It was an honest portrayal of the years that have gone by and where these cops would be now. In my opinion it was both Will and Martin's best performances out of all 3 movies because it was the first time we got to see some range from each of them. I was really shocked that they killed off a long standing, main character of sorts so very entertaining. The addition of the tech team makes sense as alot of crime elements have gone this way. Ivr read some comments about this being a feminist move but that's the biggest load of bull I've read. The team consists of 2 males and 2 females, all of which are skilled in their own area and act them very well. The only reason I can see for people hating on this is that they have 'grown up' with the films and can't accept that they themselves haven't aged thus the characters couldn't have either. If they had they would find the main characters embracing the lose of eye sight etc as a hilarious anidote to that.
