So literally the same vibe as the other two movies.

Martin Lawrence has always been the sidekick to Will Smith in the franchise. Even in the first film which was before Independence Day when they may have been close to being the same level of star Martin was presented the less cool, less suave, less sophisticated, less physically gifted of the two. He was there to play the comic relief and somewhat of the moral centre that's his job in the franchise. There will no doubt be the classic partner type dynamic in the film but let's not act as if they were ever presented as equals from the get.

LOVED the first two movies but I find myself caring very little about this third installment

Everything eventually loses its appeal. Whether it be because of time, style, content, or any other factor that may affect the preference of the viewer. It just doesn't work forever.

That being said I am sure that there are people who will be more than happy to part with their money to see the film. I myself am down for it simply because it is a cheeseball actioner anything beyond that is a win for me.

You are mostly right but the difference is in the 1st film they felt more like equals. In the first film Martin had times where he was off doing his own ass-kicking. Same with Will. In the 2nd film it changed up a bit. Will was doing the majority of the action and Martin was just following behind him and complaining the entire time. They damn near made the lovable Marcus Burnett unlikeable. At least with this film it would be more understandable since Martin looks like a walking blueberry.

Iím not saying your opinion of their dynamic is wrong. I just feel like itís being ratcheted up so much now that not only does it make Marcus annoying but it also makes the viewer wonder why the hell Mike even wants him around. The whole Bad Boys 4 Life shit doesnít cut it.

The franchise is comprised of good pop corn flicks. From what I heard Bad Boys 2 flopped, I hope this one does well and brings further interest into the franchise.

Bad Boys 2 didn't flop but it wasn't a HUGE success either becuase of that ridiculously high budget.
