The BAD BOYS Honest Trailer.

Come, I will conceal nothing from you: I haven’t actually watched either BAD BOYS movie. I’m not entirely sure that this Honest Trailer is convincing me to. Or that it’s convincing me not to. I am, as they say, on the cusp when it comes to these two flicks.

    I’m pretty sure these movies are exactly what it says on the tin. If you want 4.5 hours of that, you know where to find it.

    I haven’t seen the second, but I can speak to the first.
    .
    It’s a buddy cop movie. Two partners from different walks of life fight crime, and stumble across a threat they must defeat with little to no support. It’s purely formulaic to the point that I don’t even remember the specifics, just a checklist of beats they hit.
    Don’t go into it expecting surprises. You won’t find any. It plays the formula absolutely straight. The only deviations from stock are that both main characters are black, and that the director had an unusually large amount of money to work with.

    It’s well done.
    The actors and their characters are likable. The banter is sharp. The explosions are big. It never falls into unintentional parody.
    .
    The formula has been done better many (many) times. Even by animated anthropogenic animals.
    But I’m not sure it’s ever been done *louder*. (
