Bad Boys II Reviews

June 6, 2014
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.
June 6, 2014
The producer Jerry Bruckheimer and the director Michael Bay's buddy-cop destructorama has all the editing beats of a sex film.
June 6, 2014
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.
June 6, 2014
Bad Boys II is the rare case in which escapism involves leaving the theater.
February 5, 2010
This sequel is as sour and jaded as they come.
January 26, 2006
Way over the top, the film is morally off-kilter, designed for laddish lunkheads with a thirst for the lowest common denominator.
August 7, 2004
Bad Boys II, which reunites Martin Lawrence and Will Smith as Miami narcotics agents, resembles a full-length promo for itself.
July 22, 2003
Bad Boys 2 plays like a flashy highlight reel from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
July 21, 2003
... a nasty, mean-spirited movie.
July 19, 2003
Necrophilia, explosions, destroyed motor vehicles, gratuitous T&A and Martin Lawrence and Will Smith doing their lame Abbott-and -Costello act. What's not to hate?
July 18, 2003
Just like Bad Boys, only louder, longer and the stars get paid more.
July 18, 2003
Might be considered three action sequences and four comedy routines in search of a story.
July 18, 2003
Hulk plays like Three Sisters in comparison; T-3 is a talky thinkfest and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle a model of restraint.

Bad Boys II delivers, but as nearly every summertime spectacle is proving this year, more seems more and more like less.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
July 18, 2003
Very funny at times, maudlin at others and excruciatingly violent throughout, Bad Boys II -- director Michael Bay's latest festival of exploding cars and shaking cameras -- is, at 147 long minutes, just too much of a mediocre thing.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
July 18, 2003
Despite some awesomely choreographed stunts and the two stars' pedal-to -the-metal appeal, the movie seems endless.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
July 18, 2003
Bad Boys II just goes on and on, with more dazzling camera work, more 'funny' murders and executions by the bad guys and the good guys and judiciously used profanity and the occasional 'N' word for comic effect.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
July 18, 2003
The perverse feat of Bad Boys II is that it's formulaic enough to serve as a format-compatible sequel to half the cop buddy capers ever made.
July 18, 2003
It's bigger. It's louder. And, like the title says, it's bad.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
July 18, 2003
The latest collaboration between director Michael Bay and producer Jerry Bruckheimer, two filmmakers who bring out the worst in each other, is just as bloated and fatuous as their previous efforts.

July 18, 2003
A mind-boggling, nerve-numbing, adrenaline-pumping combination of shock-and-awe brilliance and idiocy.
July 18, 2003
Everybody involved in this project needs to do some community service.

BBII ripples and rumbles with remarkable stunts.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
July 18, 2003
In some eyes, this is a movie; in others, it's a weapon of mass destruction.
July 18, 2003
It is the loudest, crassest, fastest, most destructive, biggest and dumbest.

July 18, 2003
Just when you thought summer movies couldn't get any louder, more violent, more intentionally brainless -- and, worst of all, any longer -- here comes Bad Boys II, its chest all pumped up with the pure pointlessness of it all.

There seem to have been more bullets fired in Bad Boys II than in several small wars.

The movie is 2 1/2 hours of hard-working intensity.

July 18, 2003
Take away its endless trail of bodies, and Bad Boys II is a stale, tedious, woefully acted movie that wastes the talents of Smith and proves once and for all that Lawrence has precious little talent at all.

Appallingly mean-spirited with ha-ha bullet wounds and dismemberments.

The cinematic equivalent of toxic waste.

July 17, 2003
[An] assaultive, bombastic, and occasionally funny spectacle.
July 17, 2003
Basically the longest, the most expensive, most vulgar and by far the stupidest episode of Miami Vice ever

Bad Boys II is enough to make a young person feel old, and an old person stop going to the movies.

July 17, 2003
Bad Boys II gives new meaning to that overused phrase 'over the top.'
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
July 17, 2003
You're definitely getting more bang for your buck; too bad most of the bangs look alike.
July 17, 2003
A simple cop buddy movie extended to unconscionable length in order to accommodate redundant action scenes, endless banter between stars Martin Lawrence and Will Smith and several potential endings, this production suffers from serious overkill.
July 17, 2003
Somewhere deep beneath the layers of broken glass, twisted chrome, mutilated flesh and burnt gunpowder clogging Bad Boys II, there are faint signs of a cunning little crime comedy straining to breathe free.

Jerry Bruckheimer has delivered a destruction extravaganza that is the peak, the thundering apex, the exploding propane refinery of overblown mayhem.

July 17, 2003
Smith and Lawrence give good razz, but Bad Boys II proves that it's possible to pack a movie with so much popcorn that it leaves the audience overdosed.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
July 17, 2003
Absolutely shameless in its propensity for violence and nonstop action -- and, most of the time, a heck of a lot of fun to watch.

The violence is repugnant, yet thrilling.
July 16, 2003
Bad Boys II isn't just bad -- it's a catastrophic violation of every aspect of cinema that I as a film critic hold dear.

Bay ... inflates what should have been a lean, taut action comedy into a two and a half hour marathon.
