22 Jump Street Reviews and Ratings
Sequels are always tricky, but the fun filled ride, experiments a whole lot in this one, and honestly that’s what works. It’s not like they left out the clichés, they purposely put them in with great context, forcing you to laugh out loud. Throughout the film, you’ll find references to pop-culture, and the franchise in general.
Wait for the end credits, as it spoofs the whole notion of franchise, showcasing the detectives in different avatars – as med students, as veterinary students, Army school grads, even going undercover in a space school. This self-aware mockery really elevates it to another level.
Go watch the film for some raucous laughter session with your mates…
Just like in the first movie, Schmidt and Jenko have one simple mission: go undercover in order to infiltrate the drug dealers and find the suppliers. With the issue of a ‘plot’ quickly out of the way, 22 Jump Street storms head-on into becoming the most bromantic movie we’ve seen.
A street smart comedy that manages to regenerate the raucous atmosphere of the original.
