Our Score
Kevin Hart stars here as an accountant who's lured into an international spy mission by Dwayne Johnson, his former classmate and then a social outcast, who's now working for the CIA. The film will be wholly familiar to fans of Hart's work, as he once again plays the fast-talking comedy whirlwind who's in over his head. Director Rawson Thurber (Dodgeball: a True Underdog Story) profits from the manic energy he always brings to a film, but what makes this one different is that he's not alone in delivering the laughs. Johnson is the secret weapon and is able to outshine his co-star to create some of the funnier moments. Central Intelligence is enjoyable thanks to its winning comedy partnership and heartfelt anti-bullying message.

Summary

Action comedy, starring Dwayne Johnson as a one-time geek who suffered constant humiliation at high school but grew up to be a lethal CIA agent. But when he is targeted by his own organisation, he comes home for a high school reunion, where he enlists the help of the former campus tough guy - now a meek accountant - who very quickly wonders what he has got himself into. Co-starring Kevin Hart and Amy Ryan.
