Ahhh, the good old action comedy. The major downfall many films of this genre have it starting out funny, but enviably the action scenes begin. Generally the humor then dies off and since it's trying to be a comedy the action isn't particular interesting or good.
I was happy to find this did not fall into that trap. This is due to a pretty strong script and the inherent likability and comedic talent of the leads. Mark Wahlberg is also a fairly heavily used side character and the script is favorable to him as well.
The action still isn't great, but this film leans far more into the comedy side and i believe it is to it's benefit. I thought I would regret watching this, but it's actually one of the better entries in the genre. It's no Hot Fuzz or 22 Jump Street, but it's way better than it's surface would suggest.
