Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This sequel is as sour and jaded as they come."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Bad Boys 2 plays like a flashy highlight reel from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City."
‑ Jon Caramanica, Village Voice
"Epitomising everything that's wrong with modern Hollywood, Bad Boys II isn't simply bad, it's one of the worst films of the year."
‑ , Film4
"Bombastic director Michael Bay oughta have his artistic license revoked."
‑ Joe Lozito, Big Picture Big Sound
"There's some 'bad', meaning good, here; there's also a lot of plain bad. Frankly, there's just far too much of everything."
‑ , Empire Magazine
"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
"... a nasty, mean-spirited movie."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Generic, loud and violent action; not for kids."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Hollywood psychopathology writ large."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Jerry Bruckheimer nous offre une fois de plus du cinéma fast-food très vide et irresponsable."
‑ Jean-François Vandeuren, Panorama
"Bad Boys II, which reunites Martin Lawrence and Will Smith as Miami narcotics agents, resembles a full-length promo for itself."
‑ Peter Rainer, New York Magazine
"Necrophilia, explosions, destroyed motor vehicles, gratuitous T&A and Martin Lawrence and Will Smith doing their lame Abbott-and -Costello act. What's not to hate?"
‑ Charles Taylor,
"Sure, we can quibble about the bloodied body parts, the gluttony of bullets and gore, but who's gonna give a damn, when there's so much fun to be had?"
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"The movie is one big raging pile of macho steam-blowing. Maybe the participants got something out of their systems, but the result just feels like hot air."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"I'm going to get straight to the point on this one: Bad Boys 2 sucks."
‑ Jason Zingale,
