As a kid, I loved the first two Bad Boys movies, but they are pretty much the perfect appeal for a typical little boys, over-the-top action, guns, explosions, and comedy. Recently rewatching them as an adult, they are still decent, but don't hold up nearly as amazing as I thought they were as a kid. I used to think Bad Boys 2 was one of the greatest movies of all time when I was a kid, LOL! But recently rewatching it as an adult, it's actually quite dumb but still entertaining.
Luckily for Bad Boys 3, I feel this movie is more mature than the previous two installments, it's almost like it grew up along with me. I was shocked that I almost found myself crying in this movie. This one by far has the best character development of the series. Plus the chemistry and comedy between Will Smith and Martin Lawrence is still there. I still might say the first two were a little funnier, but 3 still has it's moments.
A minor complaint is the villain is a little cheesy, but it's okay for an over-top action comedy like this. One last minor complaint is lack of action or big action set pieces. I think there is mainly 2 main ones in the movie. Maybe I was just spoiled by the super action-heavy and fast pace of Bad Boys 2, that movie still brings out my inner child. But I still take Bad Boys 3 over Bad Boys 2 any day. Micheal Bay's strength has never been substance, just straight up action and he does that very well. I never heard of these new directors, but they inserted some extra substance that the previous two movies lacked. Don't get me wrong, it's nothing mind blowing, but pretty much as good as you can get with a movie like this. If I was still a kid, I would say Bad Boys 2 is better than Bad Boys 3, but as an adult now, Bad Boys 3 is way better than 2, and quite possibly the best of the series.
This is how you properly do a long awaited sequel. This maybe the best sequel that took 10+ years. Because all sequels that take too long are always awful or not as good, but this is the rare exception. Doesn't feel like a rehash of it's predecessors, unlike the crap Star Wars Disney trilogy. Bad Boys 3 just adds more layers to the characters and doesn't disrespect them, and actually feels like a continuation rather than a rehash. Take notes Disney Star Wars.
