“21 Jump Street,” tells about two young policemen named Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) who also came from the same high school. Both of them have very different personality and fortunes from Schmidt who was a nerd with his physics skills and had difficulty approaching women until Jenko that’s very popular because of his handsome face and an athlete. After meeting again, they decided to be friends because each has complementary advantages. Even so, their job isn’t to take care of a dangerous criminal world but to be in a park police position. However, their captain named Dickson (Ice Cube) gave them a secret mission to disguise themselves as high school boys and trace the drug networks that circulated in the school. They were back in their high school and had to mingle with other teenagers.
Do you know why this movie is so good and entertaining to watch? Yeah, because the two idiots actor Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill managed to make all the audience because of their silliness. The characteristics of their personality are truly unique and innocent to be witnessed. Channing Tatum describes a man who always had a poker face and Jonah Hill who was innocent, weak, and lacked confidence at all. In essence, they work as silly police who are very contrary to their appearance. Both actors have managed to portray each character so that the audience who watch it will not be bored and will laugh constantly.
Each joke brought in this movie’s never boring so it’s easier to understand by every audience even though there’s also a joke that contains adult elements but all that’s very entertaining. When compared with the original version, 21 Jump Street could be regarded as having a very disastrous result for many viewers because many critics would think that this movie might be something new to watch. However, all that changed when everything was witnessed what 21 Jump Street is presented. The action scene is very cool to be accompanied by elements of humor and comedy, all of it has been written very neatly by its screenwriter. Sometimes, there’s a very touching scene and there’s also a scene that produces a level of surprise.
Overall, 21 Jump Street is a light comedy action film that’s highly recommended by everyone. This film managed to change the minds of people who initially thought this movie would be so ugly to watch. 21 Jump Street is a remake movie that you will never miss again. However, this film also features several cameo versions of its TV series. Therefore, sometimes there’s a sense of nostalgia coupled with cuteness.
