My feelings on Bad Boys II which I watched over is somewhat mixed. BBII starts with a bang, with the typical slick editing and visual style you normally associate with all of Michael Bay's work. But then the movie starts to drag somewhat until it kicks into high gear when Martin Lawrence sister who plays an undercover DEA officer is nearly hijacked and killed. What follows is an murderous shoot out and a high speed car chase where even a speed boat becomes involved. Whilst the action sequences are well done for the most part, some sections of the car chase seemed a bit confused for me, or perhaps I'm just getting too old.
The plot line features Cuban druglord given a bit imitation of scraggily bearded Scarface, huge amounts of drugs and money and loads of people getting killed and already dead people's bodies getting abused.
Bad Boys II is not a movie I would call in very good taste. It is almost as if the producers deliberately set out to offend as many people as possible. Some of the comedy bits between Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are not too bad, and helps liven up proceedings somewhat between all the chaos and mayhem.
Action junkies should enjoy Bad Boys II for the most part, but we warned it is very loud, violent and crude. The movie length could also have been trimmed by twenty minutes or so.

Martin Lawrence and Will Smith makes one hell of a 'couple'
I couldnt wait for this movie to be released. What can be said?
To me this movie was better than the first one. . . fast cars. . .xplosions. . .and hot woman. The soundtrack is of the hook aswell.
The only problem I had with this movie is that it is too damn long(+/- 2hours)
Just when you thopught the movie was over, the creators came up with a last bit of story line.
The action in this movie got me sitting on the edge of my seat almost the whole movie through.
If you love Martin or Will or the Bad Boys, you should defenately get this dvd.
