It delivers — on some basic, giddy, turn-off-your-frontal-lobes level.

Thank the movie gods for Dwayne Johnson, who delivers a performance of such charm, such unexpected goofiness that the screen practically glows every time he appears.

Won’t win any points for originality, but that doesn’t make it any less funny.

The result, while instantly forgettable, is a fundamentally pleasurable experience.

In the hands of a couple of less likeable performers, this could have been the sorriest load of old rubbish you'll see all year.

Is dumb in all the right ways, and also a bit smarter than you might expect.

Demonstrates an above-average interest in story and character, and tries, if not always successfully, to craft real comic situations and action sequences.

An action comedy without any action or comedy – not even The Rock’s charisma and enthusiasm can save this dud.

Central Intelligence Honestly I’m so impressed with The Rock and how he got away from stupid films, out of wrestling and into some decent comedy. Like a ‘Date Nigth’ sort of comedy with bouts of ‘Rush Hour’, it’s a laugh and bit more intellectual than it lets on. It’s got that funny guy from ‘Ride Along’ and awesome big man from ‘Faster’. Worth an evening...

Central Intelligence is a fun time if you don't take it too seriously and don't mind a seesaw of a plot. Most but not all punchlines hit their mark. If you like Dawyne "The Rock" Johnson & Kevin Hart, go see this movie, you'll love it!

Script is on point, a mate of mine and I giggled and snorted (yes, in parts), and in a few instances we high fived each other with our eyeballs - wait what, yes that good. If you want to goof off for an afternoon and be thoroughly entertained go see Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart actually act well, hit lines that are funny, and drop the mic. Put a fork in...

I thought Central Intelligence would be terrible - I was very surprised. It is seriously funny and the Rock is a big stand out. The supporting cast all work and even though it's 1 hour 48 it doesn't feel it. Well paced and well thought out.
