September 5, 2020
It should come as no surprise that director Rawson Marshall Thurber seriously plays up the vast differences in size and physique between Hart and Johnson.

Central Intelligence is very dumb, very weird, and plot-heavy to a fault, but it's also light-hearted, well-intentioned, and frequently very funny.
February 13, 2020
Hart and Johnson are playing variations of characters they've done before, and while they're hardly stretching themselves, they're doing what they do well.
July 17, 2019
Central Intelligence isn't groundbreaking, but it's a well-structured piece of fluff arranged around the right amount of substantive story beats.
March 29, 2019
While the only award it will win this year is best tagline, Central Intelligence proves that a little Hart and a big Johnson makes a lot of fun.
February 19, 2019
The narrative may be lacking, but the Rock [Dwayne Johnson] and [Kevin] Hart more than make up for it with their combined talents.

Central Intelligence isn't going to be on anyone's list of the best films of the year, but it is definitely a good way to spend a lazy summer night -- especially if you want to laugh.
December 10, 2018
There have been worse comedies to come out this year, but very few have been as lazy, which is essentially the antithesis of what Johnson and Hart promote.
August 29, 2018
The specter of [John] Hughes is all over this entertaining, clever, and finally heartwarming comedy.
August 23, 2018
Hhere's the latest attempt at finding a winning formula for a movie double act, and it's a decidedly more miss than hit affair.
August 22, 2018
"Central Intelligence" has plenty of humor, a great onscreen bromance, and is really fun.
August 22, 2018
Slap my face and call me puerile, the new buddy comedy from Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson had me giggling and guffawing throughout... it's just plain silly fun.
June 13, 2018
What could have easily been a throwaway comedy ended up being a heartwarming bromance with enough pop culture references to make me and the nerdy friends I went with feel right at home.
January 16, 2018
Hart and Johnson actually pair up nicely, and Central Intelligence is a fun action-comedy largely because of their antics and the chemistry that they manage.

Remember how The Rock used to bully Jonathan Coachman during every interview, convincing him to make an ass of himself every single episode of Raw? Replace Coach with Kevin Hart and you have Central Intelligence

Speaking of comedy, the punches and the Black guy jokes are silly. The action scenes are decent and work to certain extent but the film is avoidable on the whole as it lacks 'intelligence.

The film's deft pace, it's frenzied silliness, punchy wisecracks coupled with the Johnson and Hart's deft handling of the situational comedy holds your interests despite the threadbare plot.
October 23, 2017
It helps that he's working with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, a man-mountain with an unexpected gift for comedy, but the fact is -- I never thought I'd write this -- Hart is emerging as a genuinely funny guy.
October 11, 2017
The actual plot doesn't really matter-there's a computer doohickey, because when is there not?-what matters is Hart and Johnson bouncing off each other.
August 21, 2017
Really is a case of good enough. There's enough to make for an amusing comedy, but like that disappointed teacher, you know it could have been so much better.
