Plot Summary
The film follows the story of James (Ice Cube), a full-fledged Atlanta cop, and Ben (Kevin Hart), fresh out the academy, and eager to get in on the action. James and Ben are soon-to-be brothers-in-law with Ben getting married to Jame's sister Angela (Tika Sumpter). With Ben and Angela’s wedding date approaching, James still cannot get along with his future brother-in-law because of his odd working style unconventional tactics. At this time, the mismatched cop partners get assigned with a task in Miami to take down a drug baron. When in Miami, James and Ben are assisted in their investigation by Maya Cruz (Olivia Munn), a no-nonsense Miami cop and AJ (Ken Jeong), a computer hacker with key information related to the case. However, when the duo learn that the powerful and respected Miami businessman Antonio Pope (Benjamin Bratt) is the drug lord, the soon-to-be brothers-in-law realize that they now face a bigger problem than getting back in time for the wedding.

The Guardian|Review by Mark Kermode
Not good, then, but not especially terrible and infinitely preferable to the excrescence of Hart’s previous outing, Get Hard.

Independent|Review by Geoffrey Macnab
In this genial but feeble action-comedy sequel, Kevin Hart's rookie cop Ben Barber comes on like a more flamboyant and foul-mouthed version of the pint-sized 1950s British movie star Norman Wisdom.

The Telegraph|Review by Tim Robey
This tired comedy sequel features more bikinis and more guns than the original – but no more laughs

Screenrant.com|Review by Sandy Schaefer
Ride Along 2 is an uninspired retread of its predecessor, but manages to reach the (low) bar set for this action/comedy franchise.

RogerEbert.com|Review by Susan Wloszczyna
At some point in between the gun-glorifying shootouts and the ridiculous vehicular chases that end in an explosive inferno that would scare even Dante, “Ride Along 2” pulls over now and then to engage in comical repartee.

RollingStone.com|Review by Peter Travers
It should be fun to watch Kevin Hart and Ice Cube in a comedy. Sadly, it’s a stretch to call Ride Along 2 "a comedy." It's simply a retread of the first Ride Along, a 2014 box-office hit, and proof positive that a bigger budget doesn’t buy bigger laughs.
