Colt's Critics Corner - Central Intelligence
The Rock and Kevin Hart star in this very enjoyable comedy. The Rock, who at one time played the Tooth Fairy and a Scorpion King, does a great job in his roll. Instead of the typical tough guy, he plays an awkwardly overly positive person who idolizes Kevin Hart’s character. Kevin Hart brings his usual enjoyable energy to the role. As a side note, I kind of feel like Kevin Hart is a more refined Chris Tucker in a way, but that’s just my opinion. Also making appearance in this movie are Melissa McCarthy, Jason Bateman, and Aaron Paul. All three nail their minor roles, with Aaron Paul giving a hat tip to Breaking Bad. (You’ll know it when you see it.)
Much like my review of The Nice Guys, I would definitely go and see a sequel of this movie. I really think The Rock and Kevin Hart make a great on screen team.
Overall, I give this movie 4 Pith Helmets out of 5.
