Movie Review: Central Intelligence ****

movie central intelligence

Central Intelligence is a buddy movie about fighting the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). A high school misfit is rescued by the most popular student (and athlete) in the final days of school. Their 20 year reunion is coming, and contact is made after years of separation. They have changed physically, but maintain an uncomfortable relationship. Their paths have taken unforeseen turns. Their friendship is rekindled. One is accused of going rogue as an agent for the CIA. The other has fallen short in his dreams and is looking for a little excitement. Together, their friendship could lead to a peaceful resolution or a final confrontation.

This is an action comedy with plenty of intrigue and an easy to follow plot. The movie could have worked as a drama, but was better as a comedy. The story was good. The action was good. The characters were believable. “The Rock” is a very funny muscle man, as is Kevin Hart as an athletic geek in their starring roles. My wife especially like the ending when The Rock removed his clothes and danced. The movie was good and is wide open for a sequel. There is a bonus scene during the credits. I was entertained. 4 out of 5 stars.
