Watching comedy gold like this movie was a treat. In 1996, Calvin Joyner is being recognized for an award at the last high school pep rally. We have an awkward, unfunny sequel where the main characters have no chemistry so you can't believe they are partners. Calvin immediately takes off his jacket and gives it to Robbie covering up his birthday suit who thanks Calvin and leaves the school. They're still not that friendly but I'm still going to say I'm wrong. There is some decent action in the last part of the movie but it just feels like a lazily inspired sequel that brings nothing new to the table.
Any how his character in this sequel is not all over the place screaming at unneeded times for no reason or just trying to be the focus of attention. Calvin steals both sets of satellite codes and runs upstairs back into the park where he is intercepted by both Bob and Phil. He may be losing me at this point. James reluctantly takes Ben to Miami to follow up on a lead that's connected to a drug ring. Not for boring people who have no sense of humour. With one of his hitmen in the room, Pope has Griffin killed in his apartment, then orders his men to find whoever stole his money.
They remind me of real best friends Ice Cube and Kevin Hart return to milk their chemistry from the first Ride Along in the sequel to a movie that was just alright. As a matter of fact, it is somehow worse than the original. I highly recommend a second viewing of this absurdly incredible cinema masterpiece. It lasted about three minutes and was a waste of time. Trying not to spoil the film, this is hard. It's exciting , the story is great and the cast is awesome! Ben's obsession with video games is well-used as part of the plot and in a great sight gag, but the movie's plot points feel very contrived and as if they only exist to get us from one semi-humorous moment to the next. I can't say enough about the trailers before the movie and the opening scene, while utterly hilarious, did not disappoint.
It wasn't a good comedy either, there was about 3-4 little chuckles throughout from some of the audience including myself for some of the one liners. The action, comedy, and elements of the plot are shamelessly copied from the original. Instead you got the sequel trap - recycled jokes still can be funny , but the bigger budget distracted the director. There are a few amusing scenes, the pair trade insults and banter with each other as Hart desperately tries to impress Cube. After the original, I thought the sequel has a chance.
We did not pay money to watch ice cube shoot at bad guys. You'd expect some real good laughs when Jeong and Hart get together in a scene but it did not happen like that. I would definitely recommend if you are looking to have fun and enjoy a good laugh! But instead we get way too long action scenes, romantic ice cube subplot which is so unrealistic it actually distracts the viewer and takes away from the movie and less laughs. . As he walks off stage, he spots his high school crush, Darla, and the two share a kiss.
Kevin Hart is driving through a car chase but suddenly the film changes into a video game version of the events that are happening. For a start i don't find Kevin Hart funny in the first place, but i know he has potention. Maybe the repetition is getting to me. The difference between Ice Cube and Ice T and Kevin Hart and Chris Tucker is simply this. Bob tells Calvin to stay in the park and enters the garage alone. A lot of the humour is more awkward than funny and a prime example is about halfway through the movie. The case brings them to a homicide detective and a computer hacker who reveals evidence that implicates a respected businessman.
Let me say this, this movie was hilarious. Bob takes out the bullies and then leaves with Calvin. It was so random and out of place, like he even looks at Ice Cube and he becomes a creepy avatar of himself. We wanted to laugh at Kevin Hart. I Have to admit I was suckered in by the trailer, it was exciting and action packed. James is working with Ben on actual cases, but doesn't think Ben is up to advancing to the rank of detective.
So of course the film jumps location. Central Intelligence premiered in Los Angeles on June 10, 2016 and was theatrically released in the United States on June 17, 2016. Both of these clowns sold there souls, a long time ago. There is a part in the movie where they start doing a video game type of filming. Bob believes that Calvin shot him as part of a plan to trick Phil into confessing. Calvin betrays Bob and Bob is arrested.
Movie generally has a lot of funny moments and i was engaged all through. It has a few chuckle worthy moments for sure, but no where near what it was trying to aim for. It wasn't a good comedy either, there was about 3-4 little chuckles throughout from some of the audience including myself for some of the one liners. At home, Ben begins to plan his wedding to Angela Tika Sumpter , but he clashes with the wedding planner Cori Sherri Shepherd. Everyone i know that's seen it loved it. It is a bit dumb and full of clichés.
It won't enter any top movie list and it won't teach you anything useful. The characters are as stereotyped as possible ranging from no non-sense cop to diabolical, good looking evil mastermind and very attractive female side-kick. My expectations were for low, like for every comedy sequel and I wanted to like this movie. Ken Jeong is going through a list on the computer. It's actually getting a little annoying.
