The helicopter shown is a Sikorsky H-34 rather than the Westland Wessex in use by the Royal Navy and RAF at the time. The Westland Wessex was a British-built turbine-powered development of the Sikorsky H-34. The Wessex had either one or two protruding exhausts on the side of the nose, depending on the model. The H-34, which was piston engine powered, has a protruding single exhaust on it's nose only on the left side. See more »

Well worth the 1hr 56 minutes I spent in the theater
This movie was well worth the 1hr 56 minutes I spent in the theater. I was completely entertained from the opening till the end. The characters were very likable, Armie and Henry had great chemistry, with each other and with the female lead played by Alicia Vikander.
I loved the snappy exchange between both actors, each had classic lines which worked with their character's personalities. The action kept me on my toes, the car chases were done with vintage cars which was nice to see.
Obviously, the cars were from the '60s to correspond with the movie's time-line, as were the fashion worn by both ladies; funky earrings and eyelashes for days. Despite the time line in the movie, the women were portrayed in a very dominant role, at times upstaging the men, but not in a bad way.
I loved the comedic element of the movie and so did the audience that sat in the nearly half empty theater. One of the lines that had us laughing was when Henry's character described Armie's character as barely human, he referred to him as "it" saying things like you should have seen "it run," and "it ripped off the trunk of a car."
While Henry delivered his comedic lines with swoon-worthy swagger, Armie did a very good Russian accent, with little quirks like a horrible but non-threatening temper.
I loved everything thing about this movie, the way it was shot, the tone, the story line, everything. I hope they continue the franchise there is still so much about these guys and girl that I want to learn more about.
