Bad Boys II Reviews

Tim Robey
Daily Telegraph

By the last-reel showdown in Cuba, your senses have been carpet-bombed past repair, and the overlength of the thing leaves you moaning for mercy.

Despite the energetic efforts of Smith and Lawrence, Boys is yet another hyperventilating sequel with an inflated plot and running time.

The action is what makes the movie. Smith and Lawrence's witty comebacks and petty quarrels are still funny though they'll never be as fresh.

Overlong, overblown and underwritten it may be, but Bad Boys II still punches the pleasure centres enough to qualify as big, dumb fun. Just.

Sure, we can quibble about the bloodied body parts, the gluttony of bullets and gore, but who's gonna give a damn, when there's so much fun to be had?

Bad Boys II is indeed one bloated, loud, frenetic slice of all-around excess, but it's all in good summertime fun.

An unapologetic, unreconstructed actioner that's as entertaining as it is politically retrograde.

What carries the film is the comedic pairing of stars Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, who actually improve on their contentious oddball chemistry.

It's not always tasteful and it's nowhere near as fun as the original, but it's a slick thrill ride that thankfully has a surprisingly raw, pounding edge.

An action flick worthy of a John McTiernan, if not a John Woo.

Bad Boys II plays like one huge "f**k you" to [Bay's] critics by giving them all that they expect from him to the nth degree.

Bay throws everything that is wrong with this world into his film, and the result is often blissful debauchery. Quite terrible in spots, but Lawrence and Smith are very funny.

Bad Boys 2" is exactly what a summer sequel should be - bigger, better and badder than the original.

... just enough escapism laughs and action to recommend to anyone who isn't drooling for Seabiscuit just yet.

Crass, derivative and profligate, the film is also tremendously funny and exciting, at least until it starts to take itself seriously.

With apologies to Joe Carnahan, THIS is the movie that should be called 'Blood, Guts, Bullets and Octane'!

Beyond the extreme close-ups, past the acute camera angles and above the exploding gas tanks, what sets BBII apart is its comedy.

Bad Boys II delivers, but as nearly every summertime spectacle is proving this year, more seems more and more like less.
