A film so much better than it has any right to be, Central Intelligence pairs motor mouthed comedian Kevin Hart with Fast And Furious scene stealer Dwayne Johnson for a comedy about an accountant reunited with a former high school classmate now renegade CIA agent. The movie handles its espionage storyline poorly and drowns the second half in entirely generic action set pieces, but is surprisingly great in a first act centred around the changes the two have undergone since their high school days. The Rock is enjoyable in any role, but his Sixteen Candles quoting, unicorn loving beefcake is one of the funniest performances in years.
