Movie Review: “Bad Boys: Ride or Die”

Rating: D

Overview: “Bad Boys: Ride or Die” returns with the iconic duo of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence as detectives Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett. Directed by Adil & Bilall, the movie attempts to capture the magic of its predecessors but falls short, earning mixed reviews—54 on Metacritic and 69% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Plot: The film sees our favorite Miami cops framed and turned into the most wanted men in America. What follows is a series of loud, explosive, and predictable action sequences that rehash the formula of the first three movies. Despite its slick delivery, the plot is thin and uninspired, relying heavily on familiar tropes and over-the-top stunts.


  • Helicopter Hijacking: A gravity-defying sequence that’s both ridiculous and entertaining.
  • Art Gallery Shootout: Brazen and over-the-top, showcasing the film’s commitment to farcical action.
  • Oscar Slap Reference: A cheeky nod to Will Smith’s real-life controversy, which, surprisingly, works in the context of the film.
  • Reggie’s Home Invasion: The standout scene, featuring Dennis Greene as Marcus’s son-in-law, adds a touch of humor and tension.

Chemistry and Performances: Smith and Lawrence’s chemistry has moments of brilliance, but overall, it feels recycled and tired. Their jokes fall flat, coming off as forced and unfunny. The duo’s performances are marred by a sense of smugness, as they seem overly pleased with their well-worn shtick.

Direction and Style: Adil & Bilall continue to draw heavily from Michael Bay’s frenetic style. The action scenes are chaotic, with rapid cuts and constant movement. Unfortunately, the lack of innovation and the reliance on Bay’s style results in a visually exhausting experience.

Script: The screenplay by Chris Bremner and Will Beall is riddled with clichés. It recycles action movie tropes in an attempt to deliver thrills and laughs, but ultimately, it fails to bring anything fresh or engaging to the table.

“Bad Boys: Ride or Die” is a disappointing addition to the franchise. It offers a few moments of excitement but largely relies on tired jokes and overused tropes. The film’s greatest hits approach lacks originality and fails to capture the charm that made the earlier films enjoyable. Unless you’re a die-hard fan of the series, this is one ride you can afford to skip.
