The story follows a one-time bullied geek who grew up to be a lethal CIA agent (Johnson), coming home for his high school reunion. Claiming to be on a top-secret case, he enlists the help of the former “big man on campus” (Hart), now an accountant who misses his glory days. But before the staid numbers-cruncher realizes what he’s getting into it’s too late to get out, as his increasingly unpredictable new friend drags him through a world of shoot-outs, double-crosses and espionage that could get them both killed in more ways than he can count.
Hart and Johnson both have their fair share of action comedy creds with collective roles in films like Get Smart, last year’s Ride Along and its upcoming sequel early next year. Considering this, I think Central Intelligence has a lot to offer with both actors able to channel range beyond their respective types, and it speaks a lot to why this is just the kind of film that could work.
Saving the world takes a little Hart and a big Johnson. WATCH the new trailer for #CentralIntelligence! https://t.co/LbsTinXRfs
