Two and a half hours of explosions and witless banter.

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.
The producer Jerry Bruckheimer and the director Michael Bay's buddy-cop destructorama has all the editing beats of a sex film.
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.
This sequel is as sour and jaded as they come.
Way over the top, the film is morally off-kilter, designed for laddish lunkheads with a thirst for the lowest common denominator.
An unpleasant, mean movie all the way.
I love Will Smith. And this is the first film this summer to pass the Joel Siegel sequel test: If this had been the first one would you want to see a sequel of it? Yeah. Although shorter.
Well, at least Bad Boys II was better than Pearl Harbor.
You cant fault it for pure action, I spose, but it left me feeling cold.
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.
Clever ideas and hilarious moments drown in a flood of violence and profanity.
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.
Sequel to the lame, unimpressive Bad Boys is a terrific mess of a film that has nothing good going on, on screen. The film lacks power, and knows it's an action film, but this is terrible. The performances are bad and the directing is plainly awful. I really don't know why Bad Boys II was made. I always felt that this was a poor attempt at creating a buddy cop action comedy, and it fails. The talent, if you can call it that is wasted on screen. The plot is terrible, and the actions scenes are sloppy. In Michael Bay's long illustrious cinematic career, there has been only two films of his that truly delivered. Bad Boys and this sequel isn't one of them. I absolutely hated this film and it was really bad. The acting and script were terrible. I view these films as a rip off of the Lethal Weapon films, though the Lethal Weapon films weren't excellent, in fact they were cheesy, at least most of them had an elaborate plot. Something that these two films lack. I hated this film, and I thought it was pointless to make. This is yet another Michael Bay that is totally and poorly conceived. Some of the cast actually do have talent, Peter Stormare, Joe Pantoliano and Will Smith are great, but the rest? Oh man, could they use acting school. Bad Boys II may entertain, but the films finished result is one that lacks real spark that has some of the cop genre so special in the first place.
