Quotes

Michael Cleveland: That idiot is dead.
William Cobb: So incredibly dead.
Michael Cleveland: Voice analysis is back. Name's Samuel Larson. He published a book claiming to be, get this... an internartional assasin. We should probably pull him out, put him on a plane home.
William Cobb: Why the hell would be do that?
Michael Cleveland: Because we are the CIA. Bet you a Benji he's dead in less than 48.
William Cobb: Double he doesn't make it to breakfast.

Funny, original and well made
19 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just watched this Netflix comedy and was pleasantly surprised. The production values are high and the writing is funny with lots of laugh out loud moments and good one liners. The story is original with a person who writes a novel about an assassin but his publisher markets it as a true story. Things get quite complicated as he gets caught up in different factions wanting to assassinate the other in Venezuela.

Kevin James as always amazes with lots of physical dexterity despite his size. Zulay Henao plays a female DEA agent and she has some amusing and snappy action sequences and fight scenes. Her dialog with Kevin James is quite hilarious. Andy Garcia gets quite a few comic roles these days and he is good. Liked Maurice Compte - Colonel Carrillo from Narcos in a supporting role.

One of the best Kevin James movies.
