Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Like our two loose cannons with badges, the movie misses its target at least as often as it hits it. Along the way, as well, it will likely batter a few brain cells into a premature grave."
‑ Collin Levey, Wall Street Journal
"Bad Boys II is the rare case in which escapism involves leaving the theater."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"You can’t fault it for pure action, I s’pose, but it left me feeling cold."
‑ Johnny Vaughan, Sun Online
"It's only when Bay turns serious in the final 20 minutes that the movie founders, and then sinks, under the weight of his Pearl Harbor-type pretentiousness."
‑ Dan Webster, Spokesman-Review (Washington)
"The action is what makes the movie. Smith and Lawrence's witty comebacks and petty quarrels are still funny though they'll never be as fresh."
‑ Dominic Bloch, Sky Movies
"The producer Jerry Bruckheimer and the director Michael Bay's buddy-cop destructorama has all the editing beats of a sex film."
‑ Bruce Diones, New Yorker
"This sequel is as sour and jaded as they come."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"By the last-reel showdown in Cuba, your senses have been carpet-bombed past repair, and the overlength of the thing leaves you moaning for mercy."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"By the end, you're past caring who kills whom and just want to escape from this smug, sadistic nonsense."
‑ Jason Caro, Radio Times
"Like the first film, this is basically a generic buddy cop movie and an episode of Miami Vice fused together, towing a trunk of old boring ideas and pointless camera tricks."
‑ Christopher Borrelli, Toledo Blade
"Producer Bruckheimer and director Bay have sunk to a new low for irresponsible, inhuman violence, dragging Will Smith and Martin Lawrence along for a ghastly, deafening display of bloodshed."
‑ David Germain, Associated Press
"Way over the top, the film is morally off-kilter, designed for laddish lunkheads with a thirst for the lowest common denominator."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Clever ideas and hilarious moments drown in a flood of violence and profanity."
‑ M. K. Terrell, Christian Science Monitor
"Despite the energetic efforts of Smith and Lawrence, Boys is yet another hyperventilating sequel with an inflated plot and running time."
‑ Leah Rozen, People Magazine
"Overlong, overblown and underwritten it may be, but Bad Boys II still punches the pleasure centres enough to qualify as big, dumb fun. Just."
