Adil & Bilall direct Will Smith, Martin Lawrence and Vanessa Hudgens in this belated third entry in the loud mouthed black buddy cop series.
We wait about an hour for a true action sequence. There is way too much soap. By the point there’s any sustained carnage a well past-it Martin Lawrence has stepped away from the plot. He does make it back for the big finale but it ain’t as BIG as anything Michael Bay delivered in Bad Boys 2. Dialled back, broken up and without a killer soundtrack… it is not as good as its predecessors, nor is it deliriously BAD as its predecessors. A cash-in for a product that didn’t have a lot of integrity in the first place. What happened to you mutherfuckas? You used to be off the chain.
