About the Movie
The story follows a one-time bullied geek who grew up to be a lethal CIA agent (Dwayne 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" (Kevin 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 shootouts, double-crosses and espionage that could get them both killed in more ways than he can count.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: No one can steal the show from Johnson and Hart. Their dual rhythms, alternately laid back and hyperactive, end up in a glorious and ridiculous kind of syncopation, unicornlike in its rarity and oddness.
Fresh: Central Intelligence won't blow you out of the theater, but you might be surprised at how well it works - how genuinely funny it is - given the familiarity of this concept.
Fresh: The window-smashing and car-crashing offer some giddy surprises, but the ridiculous yet bland gunplay is as generic as the setup.
Rotten: With its canned, predictable action sequences and mirthless attempts at humor, it displays an ineptitude that is frankly shocking considering the talent involved.
Best movie ever!!!!
Better than expected!!!
I watched this in the theater. You know how some previews give away all the funny parts. Well this one didn't!!! The Rock is funnier than Kevin Hart which isn't what you'd think. Kept me laughing constantly and wondering which way the twists were going. If you want a good laugh and a movie worth purchasing this is it!!! Enjoy!!!
Never knew that the Rock was such a comedian!
