21 Jump Street (2012)
Consistently Funny, But Not Lasting
"21 Jump Street" (2012) is a movie that starts off strong, with very well timed off-beat humour that gets the viewer interested. It combines this off-beat humour, with self-inflicted sarcasm, which also provides a feeling that the movie isn't taking itself too serious. After the movie cleverly lays out the initial framework, we enter the main plot of Tatum and Hill being sent to high school to infiltrate a drug ring. The plot seems to lull at parts, however has enough well timed, witty humour to prevent the movie from becoming stale. The major problem is that the movie does not achieve to go out with a bang so to speak. There fails to be any memorable parts that leave a lasting impression. The unexpected highlight of the movie was that of Ice Cube's role, in which he provides great comedic relief.
Overall the movie is entertaining enough to garner a watch, but is nothing spectacular. 6.50/10
