Police/CIA comedy has been way overused by Hollywood, which is probably the biggest challenge of the latest film by Dax Shephard who wrote and directed his latest comedy CHIPS with Michael Peña.

Based on the 70s - 80s series, the film brings the combination of the two actors into an operation which is hindered by their own personal dilemmas. One is a divorced cop who is trying to win back his ex-wife and the other is a sex addict who goes undercover for the California Highway patrol. The two eventually are teamed up to protect the streets yet take a detour to take care of CIA work. 

Dax Shepard directs, writes and stars in the film which I think is too much and may have gravely affected the film. Despite his expertise on action and film making, the movie could have been better in a lot of ways. However I still like Michael Peña for his role here which he played good, however there are parts of his lines or jokes which I think is a regional reference, which is quite hard to laugh about.

CHiPs stars Dax Shepard, Michael Peña, Rosa Salazar, Adam Brody, and  Vincent D'Onofrio. Now showing in cinemas distributed by Warner Bros Entertainment Company.

Deliberation time kids! 

Show summary in 3 lines: Many CHiP Happens

Technical Effects: 3 out of 5 stars (Although action scenes are quite cliche, I kinda liked the morbid parts)

Plot: 1 out of 5 stars (They meet, the fight, the work together, the end)

Acting and Actors: 3 out of 5 stars (I like Michael Peña, though he can written to do more with the film)

Pros:  Bikes, gore,

Cons: Swarm of dialogues, racism, connection 

Music and Soundtracks:  2 out for 5 stars (Music was kinda hard to relate to)

Overall: Rating 3.6 out of 5 stars (Fairly entertaining but lacks story and lines that can make it iconic and gave homage to the original series)
