Bad Boys: Ride or Die Story

The film kicks off with Detective Mike Lowrey tying the knot with his physical therapist, Christine. Right after the wedding, Mike and his partner, Marcus Burnett, are pulled into a high-stakes investigation of corruption within the Miami Police Department. Their late Captain Conrad Howard is posthumously accused of colluding with drug cartels. Determined to clear Howard’s name, they enlist the help of Mike’s son, Armando Aretas, who is imprisoned for Howard’s murder. Armando insists on Howard’s innocence and offers to help identify the real mastermind.

During Armando’s transfer back to Miami, an ambush leaves Mike and Marcus as fugitives. U.S. Marshal Judy Howard, Captain Howard’s daughter, leads the manhunt. The duo finds themselves targets of every criminal gang in Miami. With support from AMMO team members Dorn and Kelly, who are romantically involved, they uncover the villain: a rogue ex-DEA agent named James McGrath. In a climactic showdown at an old alligator park, Mike, Marcus, and their allies rescue Christine and Callie, Captain Howard’s granddaughter. Judy, moved by Armando’s heroism, allows him to escape.
