21 Jump Street

They’re too old for this shift

Shut up Internet! I know I’m supposed to roll out weekly content for anyone to give a damn about my blog but I’m a busy guy, ok! That is if you count playing the xbox as being busy then I suppose that last comment was true… ish.

soo anywho … 21 Jump st review! oh yeah, I’m supposed to be doing that … three weeks ago!!!

Channing Tatum and Jonah hill are two high school drop-outs(go to the same school btw) and yet aren’t the best of friends because of schools own stereotypical social stature. e.g Hill is the nerd and Tatum the jock. Once they both find themselves in police academy (8) they suddenly find themselves becoming the best of friends. But however they’re not the greatest at their job and so they are sent to 21 jump St (undercover high school police operation) to stop a new type of drug being dealt around schools. Meanwhile they now have to go through the new updated high school social groups (with Hill now popular and Tatum with the nerds), still being criticised as worthy policemen and are in turn hilariously lectured by Ice cube.

First off … This movie is probably the funniest movie of the year. The drug scene in which they have 5 different stages of tripping, is just balls out funny (I’m so witty with my comments). Jonah hill is at his comedic best but I’ve now seen a more entertaining side of Channing Tatum (unless you find bad acting entertaining) that I was pleasantly surprised with. The dude is a natural movie comedian and I hope to see him in more comedy action type films(apart from the GI:Joe trying to be too serious you have to laugh at it films). So many side-splitting scenes it’s hard to count the brilliance that is this film. A definite for anyone’s DVD collection.

I know the producers of the film told me not to write this but um … god damn it! I’m going to write this anyway … I fucking love this film. They are the best band … er film ever! Ladies & gentlemen … Tenacious D!!! Wait what was I writing about again?

The EPICNESS of tenacious D aside (check out Rize of the Fenix), for all it’s comedy greatness 21 Jump St didn’t really live up to that 5 star level that Tripod Film hold in such a high regard. Some bromance scenes between Tatum and Hill were a bit awkward and unnecessary and some scenes were poorly edited(like this review to be honest). Plus the scenes without the leading duo (which was uncommon) felt lacking of the films goofy feel good atmosphere.

Fuck it! I’m nitpicking here and even though I don’t feel it merits 5 stars (for some solid reason that I just can’t think of right now), it’s still a great movie.

21 Jump Street gets 4 police academies out of 5. (4 out of 5 stars)

I thought of a good reason for 4 stars! … It’s another re-hash of something from the 80’s. Please stop. Especially Top gun 2.
