22 Jump Street
22 Jump Street comes from the directing team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller who were responsible for 21 Jump Street, The LEGO Movie and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. These guys are on a hot streak having proved the doubters wrong with their chops in adapting of a more-or-less forgotten TV series from 1987 which starred a young unknown by the name of Johnny Depp.
The sequel features most of the stars of the original, most notably the two leads Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. The gimmick now being that they’re infiltrating a college not a high school. The film hardly needs much in the way of plausibility as the likeability factor and natural chemistry of Hill and Tatum made its predecessor so enjoyable. Let’s hope this one is as much fun.
