Reviews for this film from our members:
José Arce @ LaButaca.net [Spanish]
Excerpt: Phil Lord y Chris Miller vuelven con una secuela superior a su predecesora en todos los aspectos, una comedia de acción lisérgica en la que el cachondeo es constante e imparable. La química entre Jonah Hill y Channing Tatum es evidente.
Jason Bailey @ Flavorwire
Excerpt: The meta-sequel and old-guy stuff is very, very funny. The “ha ha, that’s so gay” business leaves a sour aftertaste.
Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy
Patrick Bromley @ F This Movie!
Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
Excerpt: In the end, I was let down by “22 Jump Street,” and it once again proves that sequels are often inferior to their predecessor for a number of reasons.
Bill Clark @ From The Balcony
Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
Excerpt: From its ‘Previously on…’ opening recap through its hilarious closing credit push for the animated series, video game and sequels which move their address up through 40, this meta in joke has the good sense to keep its audience in on it.
Edwin Davies @ A Mighty Fine Blog
Excerpt: Probably the most entertaining yet self-critical mainstream film since Scream.
Jim Dixon @ Examiner.com
Billy Donnelly @ This Is Infamous
Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
Excerpt: 22 Jump Street might not be as consistently funny as its predecessor, but it is twice as clever.
Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
Excerpt: ’22 Jump Street’ applies the same playful philosophy from the first film when Jenko and Schmidt are assigned to a drug investigation at a nearby college.
Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
Excerpt: Subversively satisfying, if senslessly silly sequel…
Vadym Grygoriev @ kinoblog.com [Ukrainian]
Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
Excerpt: The whole production is rather pointless, but that IS the point. The truth is, the only thing a comedy really needs to be, is funny and 22 Jump Street is indeed that.
Blake Howard @ Graffiti with Punctuation
Excerpt: 22 Jump Street is the kind of funny that leaves your stomach sore and face hurt.
MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
Excerpt: Funnier, cleverer, wittier, and snarkier, than the first film. It is nonstop self-deprecation that doles out well-deserved smacks to about 817 Hollywood things that desperately deserve it.
Daniel Kelly @ Danland
Excerpt: It’s effectively a remake of its older sibling, with only the stingiest of cosmetic changes applied, yet it uses this dearth of innovation to breed a cunning satirical undertone.
Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
Excerpt: “22 Jump Street” knows it’s a sequel, takes the piss out of being a sequel, and takes a risk by unabashedly being more of the same and yet being just as funny, if not funnier, than “21 Jump Street.”
Kristin Dreyer Kramer @ NightsAndWeekends.com
Dan Lybarger @ KCActive.com
Excerpt: In fact, much of the bawdy humor in 22 Jump Street comes from its makers’ staunch refusal to take anything about the venture seriously.
Matthew McKernan @ FilmWhinge
Excerpt: The film doesn’t hang together perfectly and it does have its wandering moments and the action sequences are always never as funny as they need to be (when are they ever?), but the film is consistently funny throughout and that is really all one needs.
Brent McKnight @ Beyond Hollywood
Excerpt: ’22 Jump Street’ is a mediocre sequel about being a mediocre sequel. Simon Miraudo @ Quickflix
Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
Excerpt: Might as well jump…
Kenneth Morefield @ 1More Film Blog
Excerpt: So what can I say about 22 Jump Street other than that I laughed?
[New – 10/9/14] | João Pinto @ Portal Cinema [Portuguese]
Jason Pirodsky @ Expats.cz
Excerpt: The self-referential sequel gags aren’t especially funny, but the producers are probably laughing all the way to the bank.
Cole Smithey @ ColeSmithey.com
Excerpt: Everything about the concept of a “Jump Street” franchise reeks of Hollywood’s perpetual drive to repackage a formula and call it a movie. Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
Excerpt: The rare follow-up that improves on its predecessor…consistently amusing and sometimes hilarious.
