Movie Review – Bad Boys II

Smith and Lawrence carve a swathe of destruction, carnage and misogyny through the streets and waterways of Miami, while Michael Bay’s adrenaline-fueled camera barely captures the entirety of this film’s “plot”. Filled with loads of “banter” by the two leads, as well as Bay’s penchant for filming women up their skirts, and plenty of brutal gunfights, car chases and explosions, Bad Boys II is lo-fi storytelling with hi-fi money behind it. Extremely violent and utterly irredemable as a piece of “entertainment”, the sequel to the fairly competent original is dirty, nasty, and utterly trashy. In other words: it’s a Michael Bay film.
