Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay

Harold and Kumar are back and ready for another weed fuelled adventure. Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay (2008) yet again says it all in the title. The get more than a slap on the wrist when their bong is mistaken for a bomb and they are sent to Guantanamo Bay as terrorists. After escaping, the duo has to face a long cross country adventure to try and clear their names.

The film is exactly what it says on the tin; Harold and Kumar escape from Guantanamo bay and go on the run. Putting the main plot point straight up in the title is a risky move but they managed to pull it off again with moderate success. The story is very straight forward and a bit like their last film, lots of random events keep happening to them, which are fun but add a bit too much similarity. The similarities that are seen didn’t ruin our enjoyment but did put a damper on things. The story had more meat in the long run, but we didn’t enjoy it in the same way as the previous film.

The characters are just more of the same. They are a bit thick and again points fun at law enforcement and politics. They were used to expand the plot more in this film with several other storylines running parallel to their own. This is mostly the federal agents chasing them and always managing to fall short.

The film is pretty consistent throughout the film with the comedy coming from their actions and the events which take place. This is one thing we are glad they didn’t change as it was what made their other film so funny.

Overall it’s a pretty decent film but defiantly not one of the best. It’s an easy film to watch and doesn’t require your full attention. We are giving it a 6/10 for being funny but not as much as we had expected. Why not let us know what you thought in the comments below.
