    Looks absolutely horrible. Indistinguishable from the countless clones of better films. Ugh.

    Mr. Lawrence looks like Mr Klump these days.

    I think I'll catch it on Netflix. I liked the first one and the second one was ok. I don't feel this one is theater worthy at this point.

    I know January isn't the dumping ground it used to be, but a 1/16 release date still smells like a vote of little confidence from the studio...

    Oh, I think it looks just fine. Seeing this fun actors play these fun characters is the draw here and my wife and I are planning on seeing it at the theater (it opens close to her birthday, so the timing is awesome!).

    Well...
    BB 1 was a popcorn flick.
    BB 2 was another popcorn flick.
    BB 3 ...Are u expecting it not to be a popcorn flick, but a twist, as a "steak" flick? Which u can savour every bits of meat in time consuming manner?

    I’m not expecting it to be anything actually. I was merely commenting on the trailer.

    The first trailer has managed to make an action/comedy look boring. Have to see what other ones do, but this one does not make one want to run out and see this film when it opens.

    personally,i was expecting something else... perhaps a transfer of senior negotiator/detective from SFPD whom had handled a nutcase like Michael Wincott to join crime fighting team with the younger black duos... yeah... Metro may hv flopped a big time then,i do hv a good popcorn time with Eddie Murphy action comedy flicks that period.

    I'm glad to see it's getting good reviews. I just got back from seeing it and it was very entertaining.

    It's still a formula action movie, but Smith and Lawrence have great chemistry and the script is actually funny. It doesn't feel forced like it does in other actions movies (Hobbs & Show, for example).

    Much better than the 2nd film.

    B+

    I'm borderline shocked by the good reviews, just because I thought the 1st 2 movies weren't very good.

    Still not sure if I'll bother with this one, but I'm more interested than I was before the reviews hit!

    I saw it, it was okay, but I swear this was the buddy-buddy cop version of
    Gemini Man
    .

    The actress playing Rita wasn't a good actress, but very easy on the eyes.

    I walked out of the theater saying eh, about what I expected from a Bad Boys movie. Guess I'm just not a fan of this series. As far as recent action movies go, I enjoyed Gemini Man more.

    Saw the film in IMAX today. Dreadful in all respects. I am sure that 11 months and 140 films from now it will be on my short list for worst of the year.

    Based on the last three posts, I'm surprise this movie got a 76% score on Rotten Tomatoes and the audience score is at 97%. It even got an "A" grade from Cinemascore.

    Yup. The positive buzz makes it more intriguing!
