Movie Reviews: 'Central Intelligence'

undefined © Rex Images undefined Here’s what the critics are saying about Central Intelligence, starring Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Amy Ryan, Aaron Paul, Danielle Nicolet, Timothy John Smith and Megan Park:

Hindustan Times

Hart and Johnson share an easy chemistry and there are enough lines in there to keep the jokes coming. Johnson calls a befuddled Hart “snacksized Denzel” and “like a black Will Smith” at various points in the film. The muscled Johnson plays Robbie like a goofball who is still struck on Hart’s high school charisma. His love for unicorns, fanny packs and schmaltzy films keep the laughs coming.

The Guardian

Central Intelligence, Johnson and Hart’s first pairing – and it’s a natural pairing at that – is an asinine film with a plot so moronic one wonders if it were devised by some sort of computerised algorithm. Yet the result, while instantly forgettable, is a fundamentally pleasurable experience. Read the complete movie review here.


Central Intelligence isn’t anything more than it proclaims to be, but it is unquestionably successful in its particular goals. In a summer of somewhat overburdening would-be blockbusters and franchise installments, Central Intelligence is a breath of star-powered fresh air. Read the complete movie review here.

The Wrap

Although Johnson and Hart are in talks to share the screen again in next year’s ‘Jumanji’ remake, ‘Central Intelligence’ doesn’t feel like the birth of a great comic duo — more like a blind date that goes a little better than expected. The chemistry’s not there yet, but let’s give it another shot. Read the complete movie review here.

    Charlie Cox Said Acting Blind Screwed Up His Han Solo Audition

    Charlie Cox, the actor who plays Daredevil on the Netflix show said that sometimes playing the superhero has an effect on his acting ability. Cox was referring to his auditon for the solo…Han Solo film where he had trouble making and keeping eye contact because the Daredevil character he plays is blind. Cox told the Hollywood reporter that he wasn’t told at the audition what it was for but he was pretty sure it was for the Han Solo movie. Cox then stated, “Halfway through it, the casting director stopped me and said, ‘Why aren’t you looking at me?’ I realized I had gotten into a habit of not making eye contact, because the only thing I had done for two years is play someone who is blind.” The part of Han Solo eventually went to Alden Ehrenreich but hey at least Charlie still has his day job.
