Like the movie Will Smith and Martin Lawrence looking a bit weary as action stars but they try hard. Well coordinated big action sequence at the end almost too coordinated sequence really.

Excellent movie with lots of fast action and near disasters!

Another garbage movie, not true in any form to real life at all. It's about time the American moviemakers took a real good look at the rubbish they are putting out.

BB For Life -- Disappointing
The original films were hard hitting, fun, and funny. This as 1-more-film for nostalgia's sake rather shoots the original concept in the foot as it bilks attention out of its foundational fans. What most disappointed me is that the two main characters aren't themselves -- they come across as characters of the characters, and even rides over into the police captain's faux version of himself. The script, acting, and comedy frequently if not constantly seems forced.

1. After seeing this 2020 DVD movie "BAD BOYS FOR LIFE", become available at Public Library [in my opinion] thought it would be something special to request, on my Library Account
What a disappointment !!!!!. For this entire 2hr 4min "movie". You should "AT LEAST" skip to 1hr 5min time; because before that all the actors/actresses DO " IS TALK", no ACTION SCENES.
2. THE MAJORITY of the "BAD BOYS FOR LIFE" entire movie - is about Miami Police detectives going through a >
MID-LIFE CRISIS ""starred [ONLY WILL SMITH - Miami detective Mike Lowrey]"", because HE IS MORE WELL KNOWN over Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence).
3. While listening to Mike and Marcus talking in BAD BOYS FOR LIFE; I probably UNDERSTAND NOW why this DVD movie was Rated "R" for especially "SWEAR WORDS LANGUAGE THROUGHOUT - evey swear word you know is spoken REPEATLY"
4. YOU DO NOT NEED TO WASTE TIME watching 12minutes SPECIAL FEATURES after DVD movie ended, BECAUSE IT IS SHOWN AUTOMATICALLY, as the movie ended.
And the Special Features are pretty stupid - It shows SUPER-SHORT CLIPS behind a Green Screen.
5. There is no reason to discuss ANY OTHER ACTORS/ACTRESSES in my review of this 2020 DVD movie, because
I rarely saw anyone else, until the later portion while watching.
This BAD BOYS "WHATTA YOU GONNA DO" - I am glad I DID NOT PAY MONEY in the Movie Theather.
In the original 2000-Bad Boys and 2003-Bad Boys 2, acting roles were shared - since both Will Smith and Martin Lawrence; had just started to be in leading movie roles.
..... I would have been so angry, since I enjoyed when both Movie Roles where shared before in 2000 and 2003 movies, AND THOSE PREVIOUS VERSIONS were MUCH MORE ENJOYABLE.

Excellent! We sure hope there is a 4th one!

Read the other comments and you will probably find a common feeling about the movie. It is ok as an entertainment action film with comedy. If you enjoy The other guys movie with Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg you will probably enjoy this one.

The Bad Boys trilogy database are all overlaid with each other.

★★½ Bad Boys (1995): Good first 9.5 minutes and the story degenerates to a farcical string of comic skits on marriage and trailers of stunts ... with excellent Miami skyline views from the air/sea circa 1995, except that the nightclub scene, shown as nightclub Zillion at 1:05:30 mark, is located in Atlanta. Two more sequels of the buddy-cop pair with Smith, and Lawrence whose 2010 "Death at A Funeral" is a must watch for a "black" comedy:
★★★★ Bad Boys II (2003): A better and bigger budget film than the 1995 pilot, made possible with the introduction of an undercover NY cop Syd (Gabrielle Union) working a case with the Bad Boys in Miami. It is a bit long but has a couple of exciting car chase stunts and the explosive Cuban military mission in the finale.

★★★½ Bad Boys for Life (2020): The bad boys are showing their age but still deliver an entertaining action-crime comedy thanks to a twist from the past and the introduction of a lethal assassin. Good shots of the glitzy skyscrapers and urban barrios of Mexico City.

I enjoyed this movie for what it is! Action and fun banter between Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. I wish the AMMO crew could have gotten a bit more shine, but maybe in the next installment.

First half of the movie can be skipped. The second half was much better.

What's AMMO?
-Advanced Miami Metro Operations. A small team trained in new tactics and investigative methods.
Gonna replace us old dogs.
- Or teach them some new tricks.
What did he take from you, Mike? You're still here. All he took from you
was the legend, "Bulletproof Mike." But I saw you on the ground bleeding. You're human, just like the rest of us.
You go out there for vengeance, you gonna get someone killed.
-Oh, we definitely bringing some smoke. That fool put holes in me!
And you're filling them with hate, Mike. Look, you need to start thinking about your karma, man.
You still got them blue pills, right?
-I don't need no damn blue pills.
That's what you said about your glasses.
