The year starts with an epic experience!
16 January 2020 | by bissnezSee all my reviews

I was really surprised that I had the chance to watch the movie yesterday, which wasn't my intention at all, but my friends wanted to give it a chance .

First of all, the trailer couldn't hype me for the movie coupled with the abscence of Michael Bay, who actually has a cameo along with other stars from the second movie. Yet, it turned out unexpectedly great. I won't try to hype people unnecessarily and as a result of that someone to end up dissatisfied. However, if you want plenty of humour and action just to have fun for two hours, then you won't be disappointed. Again we have the hard R raiting, which is something that contributes a lot to the movie with bloody scenes and deadpool like humour. If I have to compare it to other movies, it is far better than the soulless "Hobbs and Shaw", who had 200 million budget and nothing special to deliver. If you are a fan of 21-22 Jump Street, then you will experience the same ride. Only this time we have a decent villain with pretty good twist, which solely set up the tension for an epic ending, reminding me of the ending of Beowulf, where they were pretty hight stakes. I even felt a vibe of the ending of "Under The Red Hood" , but the movie itself (Bad Boys) wasn't so dark, disturbing nor deep to deliver such conclusion with the potential the villain had. Don't get me wrong, it didn't reach the same level of those movies I've mentioned, but it was only because of the comedy settled tone of the whole movie.

I won't go further in more details, but if you want to escape your stressful atmosphere, the third part of the franchise is packed with non stop comedy and action. Likewise, the cast is great and so the new additions. Both Martin Lawrence and Will Smith stole the show and if a good, yet less better movie Ride Along menaged to earn about 140 millions domestic gross, then Bad Boys will become a hit this month if people are still nostalgic about it and attend to see it.
