“..ultimately, a celebration of the silly and the sweet, a combination that's welcome again and again..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
2 of 4

“..the loosey-goosey magic of the first movie is gone, replaced by endless jokes about disappointing sequels. Point proven..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
“..Lord and Miller know how to sell a joke visually better than most contemporary comedy directors, and "22 Jump Street" is rife with delightful throwaway visual gags..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
3 of 5

“..like any savvy sophomore, this comedy sequel knows there's a trick to getting a passing grade..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
4 of 5

“..its huge laugh count, and for the best end credits sequence in recent memory, it registers as this year's live action comedy to beat..”
by Simon Brew [Den of Geek]
3.5 of 5

“..if you liked 21 Jumps Street, you'll like 22 Jump Street, because it's pretty much the same movie. So while the film is wickedly funny from start-to-finish, be warned that you'll feel a sense of deja vu throughout..”
by Chris Tilly [IGN]
“..for once, cranking out a play-it-safe sequel yields something satisfying..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
Review rate : B+

“.."22 Jump Street" might not be quite as good as "21 Jump Street," but it's remarkably close, to the point where subsequent viewings could see it elevated above its predecessor..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

“.."22 Jump Street" is a hugely enjoyable shambles..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]

“..Moreno was famous for verbal innovations and linguistic skill in his portrayal of the underdog, but the film doesn't capture the hilarity it seeks..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD :

“..but in the end it's a fond, fairly toothless B-movie take on a romance that wasn't so much May-December as straight-up statutory..”
by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly]

GHOSTBUSTERS :

“..deliriously inventive, evergreen 1984 family comedy..”
by Tom Huddleston [Time Out London]

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW :

“..boasts sporadically electrifying visuals but a frustratingly messy mythology..”
by Matt Risley [Total Film]

THE CALLING :

“..the puzzle at the centre of the tale just seems so outlandish and preposterous, it's difficult to take the film seriously..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

LIFE OF CRIME :

“..nothing about Life of Crime is going to linger in memory, save the unassuming way Leonard devoted himself to character and story mechanics..”

THE DAMNED :

“..is The Damned scary? Yes, a bit..”
by Ernest Hardy [Village Voice]

LAST WEEKEND :

“..the most striking moments in Last Weekend are not the expected ones..”
by Serena Donadoni [Village Voice]
