For many years, old cinema material has been revived practically non-stop – but hardly any of these revivals have been really successful. Successful producer Jerry Bruckheimer , who launched cult hits like «Armageddon», «The Rock» or «Con Air» in the 90s and later the «Pirates of the Caribbean» saga, has a good hand when it comes to screen comebacks : While he ‘s just launched a cult sequel, Top Gun: Maverick , to huge success, it was 2020’s Bad Boys For Life that shattered all expectations.
«Bad Boys For Life» grossed over 426 million dollars worldwide, more than any other Hollywood production that was released in the first year of Corona. Nobody really expected that! Sure, Mike Lowrey ( Will Smith ) and Marcus Burnett ( Martin Lawrence ) owe their box office throne to the fact that their comeback started in January and thus before the pandemic began.
Last but not least, the success is also due to the fact that many fans of the predecessors have longed for the film for years — and that the result is also really good. Anyone who still wants to convince themselves of this has the opportunity to do so for the first time on television today: «Bad Boys For Life» celebrates its free TV premiere on ProSieben today, June 6, 2022 at 10:40 p.m.!
Thanks to the slot after 10 p.m., the action fireworks can be seen completely unabridged. Alternatively, the third «Bad Boys» film is of course also available on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Blu-ray as well as from various streaming providers such as Amazon Prime video:
» «Bad Boys 3» DVD, Blu-ray & 4K at Amazon *
» «Bad Boys 3» at Amazon Prime Video *
«Bad Boys For Life»: Great action fun — even without Michael Bay
A full 17 years after » Bad Boys II «, the time had finally come: after Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett were repeatedly announced to return, which then fizzled out again, «Bad Boys For Life» saw the skeptical eyes of the trade press and fans the light of the film world.
Not only skeptical because it was questionable whether the cult cop duo wasn’t a bit rusty after all these years, but also because director and material battle pope Michael Bay no longer sat in the director’s chair — and room for the Belgians Youngsters Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah («Gangstas 4 Life») made. But all fears were unfounded.
