Story: Action comedy sequel directed by Tim Story which continues to follow Ben Barber (Kevin Hart) who has graduated from the police academy and is now a full-fledged Atlanta P.D. cop, and wants to make it as a detective.

His soon to be brother-in-law, James Payton (Ice Cube) is still annoyed by his tactics. As Ben’s wedding day approaches their boss Lt. Brooks (Bruce McGill) assigns them on a huge case that is in Miami, to take down Pope (Benjamin Bratt), a drug lord who’s been supplying the local dealers in their home state.

Verdict: Wasn’t a huge fan of the first one so I didn’t have high hopes for this second installment and sadly there was nothing here that made me change my mind. I will say that it does have some funny moments and Hart and Cub have a good watchable chemistry but as a whole the story is just not good. I’d give it a miss unless you’re were a huge fan of the first movie.
