Highly Suspect Reviews: Bad Boys For Life

Bad Boys For Life Movie Review


Michael Bay fans will be pleased to know there’s a third Bad Boys film out in theaters today. Michael Bay fans will be upset to know Michael Bay didn’t direct it. Michael Bay fans need to suck it up and go see this movie which MIGHT (and I’m ducking here) be the best film in the series. Smith and Lawrence are back. Smith wants to never quit. Lawrence wants to retire. There’s a new team of young badasses that like to ‘ok boomer’ and Smith has to work with them. And someone is assassinating everyone involved in an old case including targeting Smith. So eventually, the band gets together and gunfights and explosions ensue. While this might be a blatant attempt to extend the franchise into Fast & Furious tropes (might?) we had a lot of fun with it. Listen to Chris, Ben, Alan, Sarah Jane, JC, and Mike Murphy deliver the goods.


DIRECTED BY: Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah

STARRING: Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, Charles Melton, Paola Núñez, Kate Del Castillo, Nicky Jam, Joe Pantoliano, Theresa Randle, Jacob Scipio, Massi Furlan, Michael Bay, DJ Khaled
