Here is the critics’ consensus for Blockers on Rotten Tomatoes:
"Blockers puts a gender-swapped spin on the teen sex comedy — one elevated by strong performances, a smartly funny script, and a surprisingly enlightened perspective."
John Cena continued exploring different types of roles when he appeared in the film Blockers. Blockers was a raunchy comedy with numerous sexually charged jokes and humor, and Cena played one of the adult leads in the film.
Blockers allowed John Cena continue to break the mold most people were wanting to put him into when he decided to become an actor as well as a wrestler. He’s proven through multiple comedic films that he has a knack for the comedic timing to pull off these types of roles.
Displaying this type of comedic timing to pair with his action roots was key in his development as an actor. It allowed him to take on the role of Peacemaker which will be his starring role in the HBO Max show on January 13.
Blockers was successful both critically and financially. It had a budget of $21 million and pulled in $94 million worldwide at the box office.
You’re always welcome to make your own justification about the quality of a movie. Blockers can currently be rented on Amazon Prime Video.
