Marcus Burnett is now a police inspector and Mike Lowery is in a midlife crisis. They unite again when an Albanian mercenary, whose brother they killed, promises them an important bonus.
Action Comedy Crime - As with the previous two films in the series, this is a violent buddy action comedy that is a big showcase for stars Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. Co-star Joe Pantoliano also returns. Constant language and some bloody violence make the film not for kids.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Average There's nothing here to justify the film's existence or reward the looooooong wait of those fans who have been expecting this movie for more than a decade. It's more of the same: Violence-saturated eye candy used to buff Smith's ego and inflate his bank account.
Roger EbertFull Review Above Average Surprisingly, "Bad Boys For Life" is nowhere near as bad as its opening day schedule would indicate. It is the best of the three films, offering in some odd ways a corrective to the prior installments.
USA TodayFull Review Good Smith hasn't lost any of his macho cool as fast-driving, shoot-first-and-read-Miranda-right--later lawman Mike Lowrey and Lawrence is still hilarious as his slightly more responsible partner Marcus Burnett...
NY PostFull Review Good ...the third "Bad Boys" film...is a return to form for the actor (Will Smith). His combat, comedy and even his tailored sexiness is back to full power. The prince is, once again, fresh. The plot isn't really, but who cares? Think of "Bad Boys for Life" as a Pennsylvania highway store: full of explosives and fun.
