Bad Boys For Life
When I first saw the trailer for Bad Boys For Life my initial response was; really? Another Bad Boys film? This looks like shit.
But then the inevitable invite to an advanced screening came and I’m all like hell yeah! I’m not sure what changed in the months between the first trailer and the invite, and I’m not aware of any serious head trauma during that time, but I went along to see how two much older characters cope with full-on Hollywood policing.
I went into Bad Boys for Life expecting a silly but entertaining action flick, and that is exactly what was served up. Nothing more, nothing less. Bad Boys is still a solid check-your-brain-at-the-door popcorn enabling action spectacle. It contains more cheese than American puts on pizzas on any given day, and it ramps up the silliness as much as it does the action.
But on that silly little boy level, it bloody well works. If you’re looking for stupid but fun, Bad Boys is for you.
