Another fun and possibly final chapter
13 May 2020 | by pacman-81See all my reviews

Going back to the roots of the first film and cutting down the lengthy action scenes this film relies on probably the best story line of the franchise and as usual Martin Lawrence steeling the scenes and laughs. The new blood in the form of Alexander Ludwig, Vanessa Hudgens and Charles Melton really freshens things up. Laughs, action and bad boys for life.
