DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that Bad Boys for Life is the first film in the Bad Boys series that is not directed by Michael Bay? For those who aren't familiar, he was born Michael Benjamin Bay. He is a filmmaker known for directing and producing movies with big-budget action flicks of high-concept. His works are also known to have fast cuts, stylish visualization, and frequent use of SFX — especially lots and lots of explosions. He rose to prominence after his first directorial film, Bad Boys. He was the mastermind behind the "explosive" live-action Transformers movies. If you already watched those, then you may get the idea. Bad Boys and Bad Boys II, the first two of the series, were under his direction. Unfortunately, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah took over the direction for the third Bad Boys film. Although actually, Arbi and Fallah were not the first ones called to direct.
The supposed director of Bad Boys for Life was Joe Carnahan. He is an American actor, independent film director, producer, and screenwriter. Carnahan is best known for his movies The Grey, The A-Team, Narc, Smokin' Aces, among others. However, the director opted to drop out of the project due to all that stalled the progress of the motion picture. And then come Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah. Aside from Michael Bay not directing Bad Boys for Life, he was neither the producer of this installment of Bad Boys. Luckily, the dynamic duo of Martin Lawrence and Will Smith never left the franchise and is still there for the threequel. All films in this series will surely go down as the best Martin Lawrence and Will Smith movies ever. If you want to watch Bad Boys for Life, you might want to wait for a little further. Even though Michael Bay isn't involved, this should still be fun to watch.
