Quotes

William Cobb: Could this guy be more of a mouth breather?
Michael Cleveland: Well I think his everyday Joe appearance is all a part of his cover. Think about it, you'd never suspect a guy who looks like that is an assassin. Which makes him the perfect assassin.
William Cobb: You really think this guy's the Ghost?
Michael Cleveland: I'll bet you a year's salary he kills the president tonight.
William Cobb: Easiest 17 grand I ever made. Yeah.

Best in class. 10 out of 10
12 November 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I give this movie a perfect rating and here is why. I think movies should be judged in terms of what they set out to succeed. Movies should be judged within their own genres. There are few movies that exist that incorporate every genre and viewers should not expect a movie to be all things at once.

That being said...this movie incorporates two genres, those genres being action and comedy. Withing the action-comedy genre this movie is completely without fault. This movie tries to succeed at being an action comedy and it does succeed, brilliantly.

Hilarious male lead with his usual brand of slapstick humor but this time in a less self depreciating way, I like his brand of humor in an action setting, no fat jokes and more stylish action choreography. Good chemistry with the believably badass female lead. I do not know if she used a body double for the fight scenes but it was impressive either way. There are multiple villains and you never know which one is truly bad or good so there are some nice little twists there.

I grew up in the 80s and lived on action flicks so this movie was awesome! Also I am not a fan of endless sex jokes and crude humor and this movie had non of it, just hilarious situations and slapstick action comedy at its best!

I will not give away to much of the story because it is pretty simple to follow. Go watch it!
