Many years ago when The Rock left the WWE to pursue Hollywood I was very angry over it. Over time he began starring in some really great movies and has made a name outside of pro wrestling. However making that name has helped garner more exposure for WWE whenever he’s returned home. Prior to watching Central Intelligence my favorite movies that he starred in are Pain and Gain, Be Cool and Faster. This movie without a doubt is now in my all time favorite movies that showcase The Rock. For a year when I checked social media he and Kevin Hart each recorded video of them talking trash, trying to upstage each other and having a lot of fun on set.. Kevin Hart has always been so fun to watch no matter what he is in. My favorite role of his happens to be his role in Think Like a Man and Think Like a Man 2. He’s all over the place in those movies and you almost never know what’s going to say.
When you combine the talent of two funny man there is bound to be a lot of laughter. The Rock and Hart were also joined by Aaron Paul, Amy Ryan, Megan Park, Jason Bateman and a special cameo by someone who brings a lot laughter in all the movies she is in. Some action comedy movies really are cheesy and get off point sometimes but this movie stayed on point while being extremely hilarious. If you are a wrestling fan you can definitely tell The Rock’s character was inspired a little by professional wrestling. The fanny pack was a huge thing in wrestling back in the 80’s and 90’s. The whole unicorn thing had to been inspired by The New Day which makes it even funnier.
I don’t like giving away movies or what’s in them but if you love The Rock or Kevin Hart’s work in the past then you will love this movie. It’s movies like these that I am glad The Rock went and conquered Hollywood. A movie like this makes him successful and in turn he brings that success back to WWE. If you need a good laugh, if you’re a WWE fan who still enjoys The Rock’s work or if you love Kevin Hart’s work then this movie is a must see. The only thing I am going to say is to be sure to watch the outtakes once the movie is over. They are just as hilarious as the actual movie itself. Be sure to check out Central Intelligence when you can. I honestly hope that Kevin Hart and The Rock do more work together in the future!
