21 Jump Street is arguably the sequel of the popular television crime drama series in the late 80s. Own her series starring the young actors (at the time), such as Johnny Depp, Peter DeLuise, Dustin Nguyen and. Depp after the TV series of his career playing the climb becomes a movie star. The story of the movie itself is almost the same with his tv series, the young police officers disguised as high school students to uncover the drug syndicates in the school. Different from the big-screen version of this story is transformed into a pure comedy.
Duo of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum play super silly as agents Schmidt and Jenko. This film reminds us a lot of other silly comedy, Pineapple Express (PE) with a deadly duo, Seth Rogen and James Franco. While Schmidt and Jenko physically and intellectually complementary. Schmidt is smart but physically weak Jenko covered by a muscular but weak in the brain. But unlike the PE that the strength of the dialogue of the two main players, 21 Jump Street offers doings and acts very silly funny movie from beginning to end.
As with PE even though her acting is not as silly as Rogen and Franco, but the main strength of this film there is the duo’s main players, Hill and Tatum. Although they were previously more often played in a serious drama, but they were not awkward acting silly like that. Only it seems odd they were too old to be posing as high school students. One more player who stole the attention of Ice Cube is a captain with his talk was always curt, rude, and sharp. Unfortunately did not like his TV series, 21 Jump Street team members do not contribute much more, of course, be more focused on the two main characters that’s all.
21 Jump Street was different tone with the original television series. Comedy formula-pairs it is more suitable for today’s audience. Warning to viewers: Words curses and ribaldry present in almost all the dialogue. One again, the big surprise at the end of the movie that is guaranteed to make you gasp. This movie is guaranteed until your stomach will churn out. It was this film is a silly crime comedy after PE a few years ago.
