Ride Along 2 - Five Reasons You’ll Love It

The brothers in law are back! Ride Along 2, which stars Kevin Hart as rookie cop Ben Barber and Ice Cube as seasoned law man James Payton, hits DVD shelves on Monday (you can pre-order it on the right-hand side of the page). 

This time the pair are off to Miami to track down a drug dealer with his claws deep in the law enforcement with instructions to make it back in time for Ben’s wedding to James’s sister Angela.

We caught an early screening of the comedy and have rounded up five reasons you’ll love it…

 

Ice Cube and Kevin Hart’s rapport is as strong as ever...

As stern, ice cold detective James and shrill, motor-mouthed rookie Ben, the pair’s rapport is as fiery and entertaining as it was in the first film, we could watch them for hours.

 

The new additions are welcome…

In the sequel the pair are joined by Olivia Munn’s badass detective Maya Cruz, Ken Jeong’s skittish hacker A.J and Benjamin Bratt’s sleazy kingpin Antonio Pope, they’re all on excellent form.

 

There are some brilliant comic set pieces…

After the success of the first movie there’s a bigger budget on show here and you can tell in many of the big set pieces, particularly Kevin Hart’s hilarious grapple with a very angry alligator.

 

And loads more explosions…

We’re willing to better at least half of the extra $15 this cost to produce went on pyrotechnics, there are loads...

 

There’s plenty of room for more…

It’s already been a hit in the US and if this movie is anything to go by, then James and Ben will be back for another adventure sooner rather than later...

 

Ride Along 2 will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on Monday (May 30th). Click here to order it from hmv's online store.
