Directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller

I remember really enjoying how self-aware 21 Jump Street was. It never took itself seriously and the film was better off. This time around, it felt as though there was almost no plot, and the film just kept getting stuck in “this is a sequel” mode, and I felt the film suffered because of it. It’s fine if you have hard-hitting jokes, but the plot was really half-baked and ended up making the film sloppy. I also have to state that I felt that the film itself looked quite ugly, especially in comparison to another recent comedy “Bad Neighbours”. Hill and Tatum still have great chemistry though, so it’s just unfortunate that although they had a bigger budget, the film ended up feeling cheaper than it’s predecessor.
