Two detectives (Martin Lawrence, Will Smith) uncover a conspiracy involving a drug kingpin (Jordi Mollà) while trying to stop the trafficking of Ecstasy in Miami.
" Might be considered three action sequences and four comedy routines in search of a story. "
" ... a nasty, mean-spirited movie. "
" 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 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. "
" Bad Boys II, which reunites Martin Lawrence and Will Smith as Miami narcotics agents, resembles a full-length promo for itself. "
" Bad Boys 2 plays like a flashy highlight reel from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. "
" 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. "
" 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? "
" A brutal, 2 1/2-hour display of production overkill. "
" Bad Boys II delivers, but as nearly every summertime spectacle is proving this year, more seems more and more like less. "
" 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. "
" Just like Bad Boys, only louder, longer and the stars get paid more. "
" This film, whose nonplot seems to be motivated by a contempt for humanity, takes violence and turns it into a new form of pornography. "
" BBII ripples and rumbles with remarkable stunts. "
" Despite some awesomely choreographed stunts and the two stars' pedal-to -the-metal appeal, the movie seems endless. "
" Way over the top, the film is morally off-kilter, designed for laddish lunkheads with a thirst for the lowest common denominator. "
" 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. "
" Everybody involved in this project needs to do some community service. "
" A mind-boggling, nerve-numbing, adrenaline-pumping combination of shock-and-awe brilliance and idiocy. "
" This sequel is as sour and jaded as they come. "
