John F. Kennedy once said, “when written in Chinese, the word ‘crisis’ is composed of two characters - one represents danger, and the other represents opportunity.” It has long since been debated whether or not this claim by President Kennedy is true.

Everyone knows the theme song. As sure as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, I am positive people know the theme song. “Bad boys, bad boys. Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do when they come for you?” These words have been buried deep in my brain since that fateful day when I was 10 years old watching “Bad Boys 2” on my dad’s fat-backed television set. It’s a vivid and clear memory that has always lingered in my thoughts. So when I heard there was a third movie coming to the silver screen, I was a flurry of emotions.
