Mismatched crime-fighting duo Ice Cube and Kevin Hart are back for this routine sequel to the by-the-number original. They are trying to bring down Benjamin Bratt’s smuggling kingpin with the aid of Olivia Munn’s straight-arrow Miami cop and Ken Jeong’s shifty hacker.

Hart’s pint-sized motormouth is meant be intensely annoying and he drives future brother-in-law Cube to grim-faced despair from the start. However, perhaps Hart does a little too well with his acting, because the audience also soon tires of his insufferable character.
