22 Jump Street (2014)22 Jump Street is a great example of what a sequel should look like.… More 22 Jump Street is a great example of what a sequel should look like. Sequels that are just as good or better than the original are hardly seen by the public's eye, but not when it comes to the likes of the two talented Directors, Phil Lord and Chris Miller. They always know what they're doing, and they're yet to make a bad movie. I loved the first one, but what makes this a slightly better comedy movie than that are the jokes, the writing, and the cast. Just when you thought the whole movie would be the the same as the original, it's only the same at the slightest. 2014 seems to be a good year in terms of Comedy. The plot follows the buddy cop, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum), as they come back to do the same thing. Infiltrate the drug dealers, find the supplier. What changed is that they went from going undercover at a High School to a four year College. When Jenko quickly makes a friend with a college football player, things go out of hand between him and Schmidt. They must figure out how to keep their friendship connected, or else they will no longer work together anymore. You might think the storyline is the same as the first one, but there were changes that were made throughout the whole movie. Sure, some of the parts had the same elements, but the script seemed to be rewritten. If you've looked at the few trailers and saw this movie, you could easily tell some of the dialogues were changed. Some of the scenes from the trailers were excluded from the movie, which left me feeling a little disappointed, just like what they did with the first one. Other than that, I began to not care because the whole movie was outstanding. I guess they thought some of the parts from the trailers would ruin the film, and they thought re-editing would make it better. If that was the reason, it's totally understandable. Regardless of the changes, it was easy to adjust it. Don't be mislead by the trailers like I did. Otherwise, you'll go into the theater feeling reluctant. I loved some of the changes they made with this film. There were a lot of jokes and one-liners that are impossible to not laugh at, including the moments where they make fun of sequels. I thought that was pretty hilarious. So much action were going on as well, which keeps people entertained from beginning to end. The characters were funny, especially Ice Cube's character in which he had a meltdown in one of the scenes from the movie. The plot was funny and well-written, even though there were moments that looked familiar. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are back as Schmidt and Jenko, and they delivered their performance that was just as good as last time. The chemistry between the two is great, and they were born to work together. Ice Cube is back as Captain Dickson, and he stole the show once again with his aggressive behavior, priceless looks on his face, and hilarious one-liners. There is a cameo appearance by Queen Latifah as Dickson's wife, which I was surprised about. You'll only see her once for a short time, but it was worth it. Dave Franco is back as Eric, and even though he was shown for a short time, it was great seeing him again. I enjoyed the sequel to 21 Jump Street. It's rare to find a good sequel nowadays, but this is proof that there are sequels out there that are just as good or better than their predecessors. If the next Jump Street movie was ever going to be made sometime in the future, the directors better think of some good ideas like they did with this one. I was quite surprised with the changes they made here because I thought everything from the trailer was going to be put into the full movie. I guess I was wrong. If you loved the first movie, you will definitely love this one. The funniest movie of the year in my book.
