RIDE TOGETHER. DIE TOGETHER.
After several murders of prominent men and an attempted hit on Mike Lowrey (Will Smith), it becomes clear that Miami is under attack. It took 17 years for this third chapter in the franchise to materialize and the Belgian directing duo do their best to copy Michael Bay’s intense style. Expect car chases and shootouts, but there’s nothing here that makes the film stand out. Jokes fall flat and the theme of cops feeling their age and getting ready to retire was handled better in the Lethal Weapon movies.
