Marcus Burnett: You see that?
Mike Lowery: They throwin' cars. How'd I not see that.
Marcus Burnett: Hey, Mike, I'm just trying to be helpful.
Mike Lowery: Hey, you'd know what would be fuckin' helpful, Marcus? Just shut the fuck up and let me drive, let's try that.
People can think how they want, but I enjoy watching this movie. There is nothing to get out of it, except lots of action and humorous scenes. A nice, big, loud, action packed ride that is very easy to watch. There is nothing to gain from this except entertainment and it does its job... Bay style.
What's also hilarious is how every shot in this movie is a 'trailer shot', you can take any five scenes and turn that into a trailer for the movie.
Marcus Burnett: Shit just got real.
Marin Lawrence and Will Smith return as narcotic cops, this time dealing with a drug lord who goes from Cuba to Miami, dealing with ecstasy through various sources.
While dealing with this, the presence of Burnett's DEA agent sister, played by Gabrielle Union makes things difficult. Especially since Mike has been seeing her.
Capt. Howard: I can't believe you guys. Do you get up in the morning, call each other up, 'Good morning, Marcus. Good morning, Mike. How you doin'? Ai'ight. So how we going to fuck up the captain's life today? Gee, I don't know. I don't know. Ooh, look. Over there. Let's kill three fat people and leave them on the street?'
Joe Pantoliano also returns to wonder how these guys blow up everything and everybody in their path.
This movie is literally packed with all kinds of violence, but as I have said, I enjoy it. Its great escapism. Michael Bay knows how to make action sequences work.
