Central Intelligence Reviews

October 10, 2016
This is a tongue-in-cheek buddy movie that's above average, but not too far above average.
July 4, 2016
Summer blockbusters used to be reliably homophobic but, thanks to Johnson, this one's approach to love and lust seems genuinely new wave.
June 30, 2016
This is a likable odd-couple action comedy from director and co-writer Rawson Marshall Thurber, who gave us Dodgeball.
June 29, 2016
The thin, disjointed thriller plot is little more than an excuse to show the characters reacting in opposed ways: Bob typically cruising through life-or-death situations, while Calvin freaks out.
June 27, 2016
A silly and endearing buddy film with a waning plot.
June 27, 2016
The window-smashing and car-crashing offer some giddy surprises, but the ridiculous yet bland gunplay is as generic as the setup.
June 24, 2016
Doesn't have much going for it beyond its leading men, the leading men just might be worth the price of admission.
June 23, 2016
No one can steal the show from Johnson and Hart. Their dual rhythms, alternately laid back and hyperactive, end up in a glorious and ridiculous kind of syncopation, unicornlike in its rarity and oddness.
June 22, 2016
With its canned, predictable action sequences and mirthless attempts at humor, it displays an ineptitude that is frankly shocking considering the talent involved.
June 17, 2016
The film has a firm grasp of Johnson's appeal as a leading man: He is Hollywood's most imposing ray of sunshine.

Central Intelligence won't blow you out of the theater, but you might be surprised at how well it works - how genuinely funny it is - given the familiarity of this concept.
June 17, 2016
This has a pretty good laugh quotient as far as big-budget action comedies go.
June 17, 2016
If you're a fan of either Hart or Johnson's usual movie shtick, Central Intelligence is just about fun enough to recommend.
June 17, 2016
A mostly dumb but often weirdly sweet action comedy about bullies, high-school friendships and grown men who still love John Hughes movies. Oh, and who happen to be spies.
June 17, 2016
A buddy comedy that's pleasant enough without ever reaching the full comic heights that Johnson's casting implicitly promises.
June 17, 2016
Johnson brings the funny. Underneath all that muscle, a comedy star is wrestling to get out, and he's finally emerged.
June 17, 2016
Central Intelligence is actually funny.
June 16, 2016
"Central Intelligence" is one of those slick, gunplay-riddled, stupidly plotted, aggressively loud buddy movies - so formulaic and dumb, even if you see it you'll probably forget you've seen it by the end of the year.
June 16, 2016
I like Central Intelligence, even when it is being stupid.
June 16, 2016
An odd-couple caper of staggering dopeyness that makes you long for the snap and sizzle of the buddy movies of the 1980s, "Central Intelligence" is a clean-out-the-fridge soup of celebrity cameos and C.I.A. confusion.
