Bad Boys: Ride or Die Review and Ticket Giveaway

Summer's hottest action-comedy is just around the corner! Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are back as Miami's favorite wisecracking cops in Bad Boys: Ride of Die. This time, they face their toughest challenge yet—clearing their late captain's name from corruption charges while dodging danger at every turn.

What to Expect

Action-Packed Adventure:

Bad Boys 4 delivers the explosive action you've come to love, but with a twist. Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) are no longer just chasing bad guys—they're on the run themselves. The plot thickens as they uncover layers of corruption within the Miami PD, linked to drug cartels.

Unmatched Chemistry:

The dynamic duo of Smith and Lawrence brings the perfect blend of humor and intensity, making every scene unforgettable. Their camaraderie shines as they assemble a rogue team to clear Captain Conrad Howard's (Joe Pantoliano) name.

What was Missing

I really wanted to love this film. I have been a huge fan of the franchise since the beginning but I needed more. The narrative, albeit engaging, follows a somewhat predictable path that aligns closely with previous installments. We don't see much evolution in the character arcs of Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett, and the attempt to introduce new characters falls slightly flat, leaving them underdeveloped.

Despite these shortcomings, Bad Boys: Ride or Die will probably be a box-office hit. The loyal fanbase, combined with the magnetic appeal of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, is likely to draw in audiences in droves. The movie's blend of action, comedy, and nostalgia hits all the right notes for an entertaining summer blockbuster.

I attended a previous screening and the emotions were mixed. A few commented on how Will Smith seemed different and while they didn't love these “signs” from Martin Lawrence, we all agreed that he still has it. I remain #BadBoysForLife

    The “buddy comedy” genre with two aligned but profoundly distinct protagonists always hits home, from “The Odd Couple” to “Leathal Weapon.” And in the tradition of “Leathal Weapon,” Smith and Lawrence expertly marry the buddy genre with a classic action film. I can think of nothing more satisfying than a feel good summer buddy action film.

    I’m beyond excited for “Bad Boys Ride or Die” because it’s bringing back the dynamic duo of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence for another round of action-packed fun. These two have a knack for delivering laughs and heart-pounding thrills, and I can’t wait to see what new adventures they’ll embark on this time. The title alone promises a rollercoaster of excitement, with the promise of high-speed chases, explosive action sequences, and, of course, the unforgettable chemistry between Smith and Lawrence. And with the chance to score a pair of free tickets, it’s like getting an invitation to the ultimate adrenaline-fueled joyride!

    I am so excited to experience Bad Boys 3 because I love the evolution of the story line from the first installment. I enjoy experiencing Martin and Will as young cops to now seasoned vets who still have the heart to fight for what is right and make us laugh along the way. It reminds me that no matter how much time passes we should always keep our sense of adventure and live our lives aloud!

    I’m excited to Mike lowery and of course Martin. I wish this had opened on memorial weekend like the old times when Will would dominate the holiday movie blockbuster scene. This is a team that will always be a favorite of mine. I look forward to seeing all the action scenes. Gotta love Martin Lawrence and the comedy he brings to any project.
