Pulse Nigeria has put together what different critics are saying about the movie;

Sequels aren't usually a challenge, but it's always nice when a filmmaker actually tries to do something. This movie is strictly on autopilot. New York Times.

Hart delivers every line as if he's frantically trying to delay his own execution; Cube speaks with only deliberate, terse scolding, like he's clarifying a request to Siri.IGN Movies.

If you thought the first one was fun, taking another spin won't disappoint.Associated Press.

As always, Hart unleashes his manic energy on the audience, but his heart doesn't seem to be in it the way it was in the original. Maybe he's getting tired of the shtick, too. Washington Post.

To call "Ride Along 2" rubbish is unfair to rubbish, which at some point had a purpose.- New York Post.

Though some of the jokes land, that's entirely due to the performances; there's not one example of clever writing in the entire picture. Guardian.

Ice Cube and Kevin Hart reteam, and add Ken Jeong to their ranks, in this tired, witless and potentially lucrative sequel. Variety.

'Ride Along 2' is a painfully unfunny retread that can't even live up to the meager pleasures of its predecessor. Forbes.

Scripted by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi, 'Ride Along 2' is directed by Tim Story, and produced by Will Packer, Matt Alvarez, Larry Brezner and Cube.

The first 'Ride Along' starred Hart as  security guard Ben, who had to convince James, a veteran cop, that he is worthy of James' sister, Angela.
