Action-comedy fans will rejoice when Central Intelligence arrives in theaters. The film has been a topic of discussion ever since it was announced that Hart and Johnson would headline the pic as a high-school celebrity turned number-crunching accountant who teams up with the Rock's lethal CIA assassin. The pairing is probably going to be one of the biggest reasons for why people are going to turn out in droves to see this film. If you haven't checked out the trailer, then you should probably get on it because it really sets the tone of the movie even if it doesn't offer much in terms of key plot details.
Here's the plot synopsis:
The film follows a one-time bullied geek who grew up to be a lethal CIA agent (Johnson), coming home for his high school reunion. Claiming to be on a top-secret case, he enlists the help of the former “big man on campus” (Hart), now an accountant who misses his glory days. But before the staid numbers-cruncher realizes what he’s getting into it’s too late to get out, as his increasingly unpredictable new friend drags him through a world of shoot-outs, double-crosses and espionage that could get them both killed in more ways than he can count.
Central Intelligence has alot going for it, but much of that extends beyond the cast and plot of the movie. The director of We're the millers is the one behind this film and it seems like that might also play a factor in the "get people to the theater" game that alot of studios have to keep playing. The movie itself isn't even going to be the strong point since people will go just to see the Rock and Kevin Hart play off of each other in the various scenes that they share together. The film will probably rock out at the box-office because of its many strengths that include a unique comedic duo and a director who is developing a following for his comedy-centric projects.
