Worth every bit of the wait
8 May 2020 | by brandonneickeSee all my reviews

Phenomenal. I can't believe after all years they can just get back to business like that. Same characters as before just a bit of extra knowledge and experience. The best part is they maintained the same quality of Insane gangster like Johnny tapia. I probably like Johnny tapia a tad bit more but this movie was more sentimental and nostalgic. I grew up wanting to be bad boys, my best friend and I had our own bad boys verse. Even Reggie is back that's amazing
