Running Time: 109 mins

21 Jump Street is an American  film about two police officers who are ordered to go undercover as high school students in order to find and break up a drugs ring, allegedly emanating from the high school itself.

This was definitely an odd film. It had two very distinct sides to it, on one, there was very predictable and normal comedy, while on the other, there was a great storyline that was very entertaining to follow.

I enjoyed watching this film, but when it came to all of the jokes, I think I saw almost every one coming, apart from a few more bizarre ones at the end, which I’ll keep a secret, because they really were funny.

Also, the storyline was just great. It was very entertaining to see them convert the typical crime thriller about drugs rings into a comedy set in a high school, with teenagers running the show, and for that original idea, I’m going to give this film a 7.1.
