(2020) (Will Smith, Martin Lawrence) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Action/Comedy: A long-time cop duo must contend with a woman who wants to get revenge on those who wronged her in the past, including one of those detectives.
- With nearly twenty-five years of being cop partners, Detective Mike Lowrey (WILL SMITH) and Detective Marcus Burnett (MARTIN LAWRENCE) are looking toward the future in decidedly different ways. Having just become a grandfather, Marcus is looking to retire and spend time with his growing family, something that Mike, a single man, can't comprehend. With their usual comic bickering, the two detectives decide to have a foot race that will determine if they retire or not. But as Mike is winning that, a gunman on a motorcycle shoots him repeatedly, nearly killing him.
Six months later, Mike is mostly healed and wants to work his own case, something that Marcus, who's now retired, thinks is a bad idea, which also holds true for their commanding officer, Captain Howard (JOE PANTOLIANO). But he does allow Mike to be an advisor to a new unit in the division called AMMO (Advance Miami Metro Operations ) that's now run by Mike's ex-flame, Rita (PAOLA NUNEZ). He doesn't think that team -- that includes the likes of Dorn (ALEXANDER LUDWIG) and Kelly (VANESSA HUDGENS) -- will be able to crack the case while another member of the team, Rafe (CHARLES MELTON), views Mike as an out-of-touch old man.
Little do any of them realize that the mastermind behind Mike's shooting -- and the assassinations of other prominent figures -- is Isabel Aretas (KATE DEL CASTILLO) who's escaped from a Mexican prison and wants revenge on those who wronged her and her late husband and is using her assassin son, Armando (JACOB SCIPIO), to carry out the hits. And with a personal vendetta related to Mike, she wants him to die last.
