From IMDb: “The adventures of two California Highway Patrol motorcycle officers as they make their rounds on the freeways of Los Angeles.”

Poster Rating: C / D (2) / D+

Review: (#1) In spite of the certain trainwreck of the coming feature, this poster is adequately average. Plenty of detail to engage the viewer without any depth or creativity.

(#2-#3) These character posters are dull with vacant backgrounds and unpleasant foregrounds. (#4) This is an overall better design than the character posters, but it’s uncoordinated and uninteresting as you would expect from this film.

Trailer Rating: F / F

Review: (#1) It so wants to be 21 Jump Street, that it’s utterly depressing. The show wasn’t much more than fluff when it was on there, but at least it took itself seriously. This one doesn’t seem to care if the audience is in on the joke. They just want people to waste money to see and hate it.

(#2) Another trailer that continues to showcase a film that looks horrendous, a shameful attempt at humor that destroys the source material it’s spawned from. Worse still is that it features some questionably sexist and decidedly homophobic content, which takes from the Michael Bay screenwriting playlist, which isn’t a good sign.
