Описание: Обходительный, блистательный оперативник ЦРУ Кевин Поуп (Крис Рок) выполняет совершенно секретное задание по сдерживанию торговцев ядерным оружием на черном рынке, когда его внезапно убивают. Время идет, и не имея других доступных вариантов, ЦРУ с большой неохотой вербует брата близнеца Кевина, с которым он мало общался, - Джейка (тоже Крис Рок, конечно), чтобы заменить погибшего. Но поскольку Джейк является полной противоположностью Кевина - "трудяги Джо" - ветеран ЦРУ агент Гэйлорд Оакен (Энтони Хопкинс) берется натренировать Джейка за 9 дней до переговоров по ядерному оружию с террористами.
Рецензии: That cliches and plot threads are stranded into the action and comedy, making some decent entertainment, that while does go for the entertaining, doesn't go for much else, which it could've. Directed by Joel Schumacher, it has his good humor (along with Rock's), but also has the Bruckheimer edge which entails quick camera moves and one liners even in a chase scene where it's hard enough to keep track of the cars.
Here, Rock has two roles, but the first gets killed off while on a CIA mission. The other is a ticket scalper and record spinner who gets recruited by the higher ups to pose as his dead brother to make a deal and get a bomb; Hopkins plays the boss figure, Stormare the bomb seller. There is enough room for Rock to roam, and he does with his dialogue and (sometimes) acting, and even includes some of his own lines in ad-lib style (ex: I'll eat a pig's *ss if they cook it right). Hopkins does what he can, though he could've done more, and the last act seems like every other action film we've seen this side of the hemisphere. So, it's not the highlight in the director's or stars careers, yet it's a getaway for a couple of hours and its intended audience will feel averagely fulfilled.
