22 Jump Street Review (No Spoilers)

Summary of plot:
Following the events of the first film (21 Jump street) Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill must go undercover at collage to catch the dealer of a new drug "WiFi". 

Following the huge success of the first film many people were sceptical this film could live up to its predecessor (because usually films don't).  22 Jump street however didn't fail, it was actually really good, some people may even say better then the first (some).
There are many things which can be a sequel killer such as the main characters splitting up etc... but what made this film succeed was that they actually acknowledged this in the film and "took the piss" out of it.

Despite what they said several times in the film, it is completely different from the first which works really well - I particularly enjoyed the references to other film projects the actors have done (watch out for them).

One final point that this film had which may shock you were several characters with small roles played by big actors / actresses. To be honest it was not that important to the overall film but it was a nice touch.

Overall I Give 22 Jump street a 8.2 / 10 - If you like humour, puns and references then this is the film for you.
