Incredible third installment
17 January 2020 | by masonsaulSee all my reviews

Bad Boys for Life is an incredible third installment and welcome return to the franchise that's fast paced, surprisingly emotional and more mature than it's predecessors. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are once again incredible and instantly recapture their perfect chemistry and are also extremely funny throughout. Joe Pantoliano is great and newcomers Alexander Ludwig, Vanessa Hudgens, Charles Melton and Paola Nuñez are all great. The direction by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah is amazing, consistently stylish with well filmed action sequences that are ridiculously fun and gleefully over the top. The music by Lorne Balfe is excellent. However, it is brought down slightly by some very brief but still weak CG.
