A movie review: By Lee Sonogan
(2016) 1h47mins/Action, Comedy, Crime
An interesting crime movie that is funny and keeps you guessing. This movie is about a mild-mannered accountant is lured into the world of international espionage. With a budget of $50 million, this move made $214 million in the box office. This movie has well written comedy and deeper themes.
When Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson’s characters first meet, Hart makes a reference to Johnson looking like Hercules. Johnson played Hercules in Hercules, made in 2014. Dwayne Johnson wears a fanny pack throughout the movie, and the film makes multiple comedic references to it. This is a reference to a popular meme, which shows Johnson wearing a fanny pack in the 90s.
In conclusion, this movie was more impressive than the trailer. The rock is very impressive in this movie. Creating most of the laughter and chaos in the movie. Plus the cameo appearances of big name stars add perfectly to the over all story. It’s a long movie, so everything in it is not funny. It’s worth a watch, but still… It is a 6.6/10 movie.
