Goofs

When 'The Fool' Murders Hierophant in the bathroom, Temperance says "So, you gonna get out from under her?" Fool replies by telling Hierophant's corpse "Get off me, you bitch," and then proceeds to push her leg off him. His shove dislodges her red high-heel shoe, which is seen to be flung a few meters from her corpse. In the following segment, when Chariot emerges from a stall in the same bathroom, Hierophant's cadaver is wearing both shoes. See more »

Quotes

Fool: What does Alpha do?
Chariot: You know, the usual. Some president, UN official, American politician wants to talk shit about the military industrial complex, wants to stop spending $600 billion on a war with no fucking end, well, whether it be 1963 or now, they intervene.

Fun movie

Reading the plot summary I went in thinking this would be all mindless action. The action is pretty mindless, but the movie is really more comedy than anything else. The dialog is the real treat here (especially that delivered by Rob Corddry).

We're taken into an unexpected world, where American covert operatives are shown to be unglamorous, ultra-jaded, and a little crazy, like your average caricature of a stereotypical office environment, complete with cubicles, water coolers and fluorescent lights. It's far from the suave and sophisticated spy life normally depicted.

It seems like a typical day at the office, until something goes terribly wrong and suddenly everyone starts killing each other. Though still cracking jokes and making sarcastic banter.

I found the movie entertaining almost throughout. It's written and performed well for the most part. Aside from a couple of exceptions, the impressive cast list only play bit parts. Don't expect to see much of Ving Rhames or Zack Galifianakis, for example. Nevertheless I thought everyone was nicely utilized, for the amount of time they chose to donate.

My only serious problem with the movie came towards the end, when the movie seemed to try and offer some sort of serious message tied into real-life events as its conclusion; which just didn't work, probably because it didn't jive with the humorous meat of the film you just watched. The movie works best at face value, without the backstory that's eventually revealed. Basically it tries to be too much, when it should've settled for just being fun.
