BluRay Review: Central Intelligence
I’d manage to avoid watching Central Intelligence for a while, it just didn’t look like my cup of tea. American comedies are a rare thing. Oh sure, films placed in the comedy genre are quite common, but true comedies hailing from Trump Land, you know, actually FUNNY comedies are few and far between. Central Intelligence didn’t look like it would rise above the usual rubbish mass produced by the Hollywood comedy machine.
But this unlikely buddy story of two high school acquaintances manages to climb up to that hallowed ground of being a heart warming and funny film, pretty much because of two things. A genuine chemistry between Hart and Johnston, and Johnston pulling off an totally not his character with ease. Hell, any film with Johnston acting the character of Bob Stone would be funny. Add to this a predictable but fun action story and you have the perfect film for a fun night on the couch.
Rating: M Violence, sexual references and offensive language.
