Critic Reviews for Bad Boys II

All Critics (176) | Top Critics (46)

Like our two loose cannons with badges, the movie misses its target at least as often as it hits it. Along the way, as well, it will likely batter a few brain cells into a premature grave.

Wall Street Journal
Top Critic

The producer Jerry Bruckheimer and the director Michael Bay's buddy-cop destructorama has all the editing beats of a sex film.

New Yorker
Top Critic

Producer Bruckheimer and director Bay have sunk to a new low for irresponsible, inhuman violence, dragging Will Smith and Martin Lawrence along for a ghastly, deafening display of bloodshed.

Bad Boys II is the rare case in which escapism involves leaving the theater.

AV Club
Top Critic

This sequel is as sour and jaded as they come.

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

Way over the top, the film is morally off-kilter, designed for laddish lunkheads with a thirst for the lowest common denominator.

Audience Reviews for Bad Boys II

Michael Bay takes his ideas and injects it with any drug or substance you can think of. Bad Boys II is an unnecessary sequel that is filled with nothing but shooting, explosions (with a decent action sequence), strobe-light effects and childish humor. I guess this is what Michael Bay thinks you'll experience when on ecstasy. 3/5

I dont think it's a coincidence that I had a huge headache after sitting through the loud, noisy, explosion infested and above all idiotic Bad Boys 2 but I can easily conclude why. First of all this film proves everything thats wrong with Hollywood today. Big budgets and massive stars dont make decent popcorn movies. A story and some likable characters would do it for me among most people. But this lowest common denominator action flick is just lightning paced, charmless, witless, thrill free and heartless drivel that's badly directed by Michael Bay and follows the same formula as the first film and I mean doesn't do anything new whatsoever. With even more explosions, bad acting and Michael Bay's typically pointless upskirt shots. It's supposed to be an action film yes, but it lacks any form of power and consequently the film is just completely boring.

After the below average Armageddon and the terrible Pearl Harbor, Michael returns to form with the sequel to his directorial debut. This sequel takes the first film and injects steroids that doubles everything. Doubles the comedy and the action. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence still retain that dynamite chemistry, with better comedy material to boost. The action is bigger, louder, and a lot more explosive. The film's highway chase sequence is one of the best action sequences committed to film. The film is essentially non stop action, but with its slightly bloated time length, it may get tiring for some. If you are not into the hardcore comedy style, then this is not the film for you. The music is also very good, although it does sound similar to Speed at times. This film maybe dumb, but it is a very entertaining dumb movie.
