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

“..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]

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

“..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]

“..it is a creamily sensuous, richly observed piece of work, handsomely detailed and furnished..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]


“..Youth has a wan eloquence and elegance, though freighted with sentimentality and a strangely unearned and uninteresting macho-geriatric regret for lost time, lost film projects, lost love..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

AREA 51 :

“..there's no creative leap to enjoy and little filmmaking finesse to study..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]


“..it's an interesting idea - a series of monologues to camera, interspliced with home video..”
by Cara McGuigan [The Skinny]


“..this is the sort of film where you enjoy the cast even though the running time becomes a bit of a snore..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]


“..unfortunately, there's really nothing fresh or gripping there. It's all dull, procedural police work..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]


“..Jimenez's sprawling cat-and-mouse thriller loses momentum and focus in the homestretch, but until then its '70s sun-and-sin-on-the-Cote d'Azur vibe is electric...”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]


“.."Absolution" isn't complete, highlighting a forgettable villain and expendable supporting characters, but I supposed it's about as close to a coherent endeavor as Seagal is willing to make these days..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]


“..frankly, Pound Of Flesh could have used more of Crank's everything-and-the-kitchen-sink silliness..”
by Adam Nayman [A.V. Club]


“..the movie plays its stupidity straight, with crude first-draft dialogue ("He's keeping the photos for safekeeping") delivered via soap-level performances..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]
