21 Jump Street is another film adaptation of an old TV show. Can we just appreciate the Tagline on the blu-ray cover: "The only thing getting blown tonight is their cover." It's poetry. For those of you who read my reviews know that I struggle with comedies, my humour is practically non-existent so I hardly ever laugh. I actually found this to be rather hilarious and laughed more than 3 times (I think that's a record?). It was good fun!! It knew exactly what it wanted to be and succeeded fantastically. A pair of police officers (who are the worst cops ever, no hyperbole) go undercover in a high school to bust a drug ring. This drug when taken has four unique phases which are portrayed on multiple occasions. They were funny as flip! Phase 2 is the greatest, massive props to the guy who envisaged those hallucinations. The story is actually well-rounded, the role reversal of our lead characters was a pleasant watch. The contrast of cliques from their past school life to the present made for some funny moments. I like the involvement of these cliques, the nerds were useful as opposed to just being picked on. The forced scenes of "yayyyy friendship is important" are quite cringe-worthy and didn't flow with the rest of the narrative. Channing Tatum was excellent, probably the first comedic role I've seen him in and he nailed it. Jonah Hill, who I notoriously dislike, was actually...dare I say...watchable. Now now, before you say "you finally like him Luke!" I still found him unfunny compared to Tatum, but he was tolerable. Brie Larson, Dave Franco and Ice Cube were also decent. A nice surprise towards the end as well. The action scenes were filmed with some exhilaration, particularly the limousine chase. I thought the editing had visual flair, reminded me of Edgar Wright. The soundtrack cutting out during a joke or the quick jump cuts to emphasise something (like the explosion opportunities in the freeway car chase). Honestly I didn't want to like this, but I had a really fun time and found it to be extremely watchable.
