Topic: Bad Boys: Ride or Die

https://letterboxd.com/film/bad-boys-ride-or-die/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4919268/

When their late police captain gets linked to drug cartels, wisecracking Miami cops Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett embark on a dangerous mission to clear his name.


Well… it certainly was BAD, boys!

Seriously tho, it had some decent moments but overall this flick was derivative of better fare… and kind of forgettable, unfortunately.

MVPs were the ‘Bourne Identity’ moment Reggie gets and the Smolder Fu of Armando… I’d say Michael Bay would be rolling over in his grave if he had not indeed had the lamest cameo in a film that was about 20% cameos.

Speaking of which thank goodness Joey Pants gets his, I was sad we lost him in the last movie.

Also, I just wanted to point out that the whole first half they shoot sooooo many bullets and hit almost nothing, yet there’s only like three opponents. The second half there’s like a million dudes getting hit by ‘purposely fired ricochets’ annnnd NOTE TO STUDIO: I 1000% never want to see a film turn into a first person shooter evvvver again, if you please.


Calling it now:
Next Movie Reggie & Armando rescue the boys tongue

No surprise there! I found the 2020 Bad Boys for Life movie quite bad, not sure yet if I'll watch this one...

A weird thing to say/ write, given that he's still alive? big_smile

Hahaha... I know, I just was sooooo mad that I had been excited for it before I saw the flick, because I didn't hate the last one... I mean it wasn't great but it was decent enough and pretty fun.

So, when I was writing up my review for this installment I was like Bay would be revolted but then I remembered he was in this stupid scene where he almost hits Will with his car. Soooo, I guess he wouldn't be! Or, at least, he kept his mouth shut and cashed his check tongue

Anyways that got me a little more annoyed, so I do apologize, but after I wrote that it kind of felt apt to just let my passion win the day over logic... after all, that's what the movie seemed to be doing.
