Our Score
Kevin Hart stars here as an accountant who's lured into an international spy mission by his former classmate Dwayne Johnson, 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. However, this is as much Johnson's movie, and he manages to outshine his co-star in some of the funnier scenes. The film succeeds thanks to its manic energy and heartfelt anti-bullying message (Johnson's character was a social outcast at school), while the winning comedy partnership of "a little Hart and a big Johnson" proved so successful that they teamed up again in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle the following year.


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.
