22 Jump Street movie review by Stevie Mack

It’s $6 movie day (every Wednesday), so you will find me at Rave Cinemas Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza 15 + Extreme This is where I settle in with a large bucket of popcorn to watch all the hottest movies.

After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt and Jenko when they go deep undercover at a local college. But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team, and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership. Now they don’t have to just crack the case - they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship. If these two overgrown adolescents can grow from freshmen into real men, college might be the best thing that ever happened to them.

I liked the first 21 Jump Street movie adaptation, but I was skeptical about 22 Jump Street, thinking it would be just a sequel cash cow for all concerned, but it wasn’t. In fact, it far exceeded my expectations.

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum took bromance to another level in this flick. They had me rooting for them to triumph over the bad guys as well as the hindrances in their friendship.

Amber Stevens was so good; I forgot I knew her in real life…LOL…but true, and this was some of Ice Cube’s best comedy performances since Friday.

There was never a dull moment, tons of jokes, action and Special FX. The theater had a family like vibe to it, so everyone laughed out loud, long and hard,  without fear of retribution, if there is such a thing.

Go see this movie, and go see it at a theater that will allow you to laugh out loud, long and hard, because you will.

That’s my two cents.
