The wife and son of a Mexican drug lord embark on a vengeful quest to kill all those involved in his trial and imprisonment -- including Miami Detective Mike Lowrey. When Mike gets wounded, he teams up with partner Marcus Burnett and AMMO -- a special tactical squad -- to bring the culprits to justice. But the old-school, wisecracking cops must soon learn to get along with their new elite counterparts if they are to take down the vicious cartel that threatens their lives.

Went to see Bad Boys for Life with my husband. I loved the first two movies and went in with high expectations... unfortunately I didn't love the movie. There was a ton of big-screen action which is normally all I need to have a good time. But the storyline was...dumb. You can pretty much predict what's going to happen, which isn't unusual in action movies and something I can overlook most of the time. All the funny scenes are in the trailer so those moments didn't hit as hard during the movie...I already knew they were coming.

The action scenes are over the top, bordering on silly but who doesn't love a helicopter blowing up (the hallmark of any respectable action movie)?

I'm not sure I was able to give Bad Boys for Life a fair shake. I expected too much--not on the action--but from the story. My husband, who can be won over with enough car chases, also wasn't as impressed. We actually agreed on our rating this time!

This is more of a rental for us. It definitely has big-screen action sequences but they are glued together with an eye-rolling story.
