The Rock & Kevin Hart Do Hilarious Spy Stuff In Central Intelligence

The Rock & Kevin Hart Do Hilarious Spy Stuff In Central Intelligence

The pantheon of U.S. TV & Film is filled with crime fighting duos. This includes such standouts as Turner & Hooch, Cagney & Lacey,  Murtaugh & Riggs, Tango & Cash, Cates & Hammond, and the greatest crime duo ever to grace the earth, Crockett & Tubbs of Miami Vice fame.

But these stalwarts of the buddy-cop style now have some competition and it comes from arguably two of 2016’s most popular entertainers: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Kevin Hart. The Rock and Hart play Bob Stone and Calvin Joyner, respectively. And in Central Intelligence, Stone & Joyner team up to help break up an international espionage ring focused on compromising the U.S.’s top secret satellite system.

Film Synopsis: Bullied as a teen for being overweight, Bob Stone (Dwayne Johnson) shows up to his high school reunion looking fit and muscular. While there, he finds Calvin Joyner (Kevin Hart), a fast-talking accountant who misses his glory days as a popular athlete. Stone is now a lethal CIA agent who needs Calvin’s number skills to help him save the compromised U.S. spy satellite system. Together, the former classmates encounter shootouts, espionage and double-crosses while trying to prevent worldwide chaos.

Central Intelligence is rated PG-13 for crude and suggestive humor, some nudity, action violence and brief strong language.
