MOVIE REVIEW -- Bad Boys 2, starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence is just one more really bad sequel for the public to avoid this summer. I would have fallen asleep but the movie was too loud.
Jerry Bruckheimer pumped $100 million into this farce; I assume the money was spent on special effects and Smith and Lawrence’s salaries. Certainly Bruckheimer wouldn’t spend a penny on the overused stock plot of two cop pals hunting down murderous drug dealers.
Bad Boys 2 had great action scenes and amazing camera angles. In fact, there was so much action that the sickly plot also suffered from a lack of logic and too few funny moments.
Amazingly, Will Smith, the rapper/actor who once held his Grammy up high and proclaimed to the world that he never cussed in his albums, had no qualms about swearing like an injured sailor or gawking at dead women’s breasts.
If you are a fan of the first Bad Boys movie, by all means, shell out a few dollars to see the sequel when it comes out on video. For everyone else who is looking for a good movie, don’t look for it here.
