Movie Review: BAD BOYS: RIDE OR DIE

This is the 4th instalment in the Bad Boys franchise and is a sequel to Bad Boys for Life (2020). Bad Boys (1995), a cop action comedy, paved way for Bad Boys 2 (2003).

While the first 2 films of this famous franchise were directed by Michael Bay, the 3rd was directed by Adil and Bilall. This 4th one has also been directed by the same duo.

 Indian fans can rejoice as the film releases in India a day early, on 6th June.






Story:

 The world's favourite Bad Boys are back with their iconic mix of edge-of-your-seat action and outrageous comedy but this time with a twist: Miami's finest are now on the run! 

Detectives Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) & Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) probe into the prevailing corruption within the Miami PD.

 Late Captain Conrad Howard (Joe Pantoliano) was supposedly involved with the Romanian Mafia and as the investigation progresses, the scenario turns as it gets twisted turning the detectives into fugitives, forcing them to work outside the ambit of the law in order to wrap up the case.

Review:

As usual, Mike and Marcus bring the house down with their witty exchanges. This time,  Marcus brings in an emotional angle, as a result of a near death experience, and the results are hilarious. The chemistry and synch of the duo is top notch yet again. 

Some of the action scenes are truly rivetting  like the one in Marcus' home, another on the highway, on an aircraft, and the climax portions to name a few.

There is an emotional angle with Mike and his son thrown in,  but nothing slows down the racy screenplay.

A summer treat yet again for fans of the franchise and genre.

Rating 3.5/ 5
