Movie Review: 'The Bad Guys' give a whole new meaning to good

'The Bad Guys' is a 2022 Hollywood heist comedy animation film based on a children's book series by Aaron Blabey.

The Bad Guys

The film tells a story of a criminal group of the infamous villains of all children's books and the Bible. This collection of Wolf, Snake, Piranha, Shark, Spider, and a Fox attempt to turn from the life of crime into model citizens but find that the only way to save the world is to stay bad.

Which makes sense because what is the Three Pigs without the Wolf, the story of the Fall of man in Eden without the snake, the movie 'Jaws' without Sharks?

The group wears the public's opinion of them as a badge of honour which seems to be their mask as they don't attempt to conceal their identities. They have a checklist for crimes that will propel them into criminal stardom while they threaten the police badge of town Police Captain who is at her wits end trying to catch them.

If you outgrew your fear of monsters, evil and bad in general, prepare to have some nightmares of a small philanthropic guinea pig called Professor Marmalade bring a Wolf and Snake through a hell of mind-controlled guinea pigs.

Professor Marmalade orchestrates a trap to use Wolf to take the fall for the biggest crime the city has ever seen, exploiting Wolf's street smarts and smugness to make him believe he has the upper-hand.

Although they identify themselves as The Bad Guys, evil reveals their vulnerabilities, bruising their bond, and gives them perspective in a high speed car chase, a helicopter chase and a sky-diving save and that restores their connection.
