Central Intelligence Movie
Action star The Rock is hilarious as a CIA agent in Central Intelligence
Central Intelligence is an action comedy starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart. The film is directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber who is also one of the writers of the movie. Other writers are Ike Barinholtz and David Stassen. The movie is scheduled to be released on June 17, 2016.
It is the story of two high-school friends that reunite to solve a top-secret case and to save the world from destruction. These friends are Bob Stone (Dwayne Johnson) and Calvin Joyner (Kevin Hart). Bob Stone used to be an overweight child during his school days and due to his overweight, he was bullied by others. His friends made fun of him because of his excess weight. But on growing up, he joins CIA and becomes a lethal undercover agent.
Second part of the story starts when Bob comes to his high school for reunion with his school time friends. Everybody is amazed at the physique and buildup of the former overweight boy. It is a reunion of high school friends but Bob is on a secret mission. He selects one of his old friends Calvin for help. Calvin is an accountant and living a peaceful life but he is involved in a secret mission of which Bob is part.
Third part of the story has the Bob training Calvin a civilian to work like a CIA agent and Calvin facing difficulties in the training. It is like an adventure for Calvin but for Bob it is a mission of do-or-die. They go through double-crosses and also get involved in shoot-outs while unearthing a secret plot. The movie has action and comedy as well as a civilian is shown working as an undercover agent. Calvin many times gets stuck into difficult situations but gets out without getting hurt.
It is an action movie as it involves unearthing of a secret plot but it is made action-comedy by involving a civilian in the job. A trailer of the movie is released and it shows that Central Intelligence will be a laugh-out-loud movie. In trailer, Calvin is shown getting angry in a hilarious manner. He is always confused as he has never worked as an agent.
Why watch the movie?
If you go through the story, you will find that it is different. This isn’t the first time that a CIA agent is made protagonist of a movie but involving a civilian in a deadly job is certainly an experiment. It is an action movie turned action-comedy but the comedy isn’t forced. Everything looks simple and the story is apprehensible.
