Central Intelligence Storyline
Central Intelligence” is that it’s an action-comedy—the story of a C.I.A. agent named Bob Stone (Johnson), who recruits a former high-school classmate, Calvin Joyner (Hart), a mild-mannered accountant, to help him crack a case that quickly turns violent. And the problem with the action is that it’s filled with what, in a grim oxymoron, would be called gunplay.
Bullied as a teen for being overweight, Bob Stone (Dwayne Johnson) shows up to his high school reunion looking fit and muscular. While there, he finds Calvin Joyner (Kevin Hart), a fast-talking accountant who misses his glory days as a popular athlete. Stone is now a lethal CIA agent who needs Calvin’s number skills to help him save the compromised U.S. spy satellite system. Together, the former classmates encounter shootouts, espionage, and double-cross while trying to prevent worldwide chaos.

The chances of making a Central intelligence sequel were harmed by the Jumanji movies,co-writer and director Rawson Marshall Thurber has ruled out the possibility of a sequel to the action-comedy, even though he has a really cool, fun idea for a follow-up.

But still, the possibility of the second sequel of Central Intelligence isn’t ruled out yet. Let’s see what happens next.
Central Intelligence ending explained
20 years ago Calvin Joyner (Kevin Hart) was the only person to help overweight and bullied Robbie Wierdick (Dwayne Johnson) when bullies strip him naked in front of an assembly by giving him his letter jacket. Today Robbie has changed his name to Bob Stone and is with the CIA trying to track the Black Badger who killed his partner and stole the access codes to the CIA spy satellites which they sold on an anonymous auction site.
The CIA tells Calvin that Bob is the Black Badger, killed his own partner, and is trying to use him to get to the trade-off point. Calvin shoots Bob again as he lies down where Phil admits he is actually a Black Badger and lies about his death in order to escape the constant worship of Calvin Calvin in high school.
Calvin then interrupts Phil while Bob recovers and pulls him out. Access codes were returned to the CIA and Bob’s name was deleted in time for them to return to their 20th-grade school reunion on a CIA helicopter. Calvin hits the school computer system to arrange for Bob to win the crown of the next king.
She pulls out her high school bullet on the way to the stage as she undresses in front of the class to talk about dealing with your fears (bullies and nudity). She then met her high school crush (Melissa McCarthy) and danced with her. The film ends with Calvin starting his first day of work at the CIA and Bob returning his book bag to high school.
