Dragged Across Concrete (***1/2) is a symbol of a great faltering career

Dragged Across Concrete feels like an epitaph on the career of Mel Gibson. He's done good work for so many years, only to be busted down to making movies that make their debut off the big screen.

Central Intelligence (**1/2): A measure of the Rock’s comedic flexing ability

Let's be serious though. This isn't mensa material. It's a big dumb action comedy. There is nothing here as funny as Thurber's Terry Tate, Office Linebacker and thank goodness there is nothing nearly as bad as We're The Millers. It might get a few sequels, and that's fine. I'm pretty sure I won't remember one joke in 5 years, but I will smile when I think about it, just the same.
