A Mindless Action, Clichéd Dialogue and Overabundance of Fire. Martin Lawrence and Will Smith is an agreeable comic pairing when given the right material and a reason for their relentless squabbling – otherwise, their sniping is annoying rather than hysterical. Nevertheless, a gap of eight years – an age in filmy terms – means that the hardly indelible characters have fallen off the movie-going radar and need to make quite a noise to recapture an audience. In ‘Bad Boys II’ the main characters Martin Lawrence as Mike Lowrey and Will Smith as Marcus Burnett. Needless to say, there is no need for continuity where there is no other character or storyline, so you can take the “II” as nothing more than a friendly reminder that you watching something separate and distinct from the first film.
In Miami, there was a crooked bad man and a criminal named Hector Juan Carlos Tapia. Who was drug kingpin and trafficking Ecstasy, brutally executing his associates when they displeased him and mutilating rivals in his kitchen? For taking him down two wisecracking cops Mike and Marcus are assigned to stop a drug lord from flooding Miami with deadly ecstasy.
Marcus brotherly loves Sydney (Gabrielle Union) intensely and risks his own life to protect her from harm. She is an undercover DEA who also happens to be romancing Mike, gets caught in the conflict. Reminder the Bad Boys theme music and let 143 minutes of soulless brutality begin.
Again director Michael Bay has proven him an auteur of splashy, hyperkinetic films whose plots could fit on a matchbook cover.
The movie is very deep and super funny, but definitely not for kids. Here is the situation that any underprivileged overseas village or human nook that brings innocent American lives that much closer to drugs is worth decapitation.
