Goofs

While watching things unfold in the bunker "control", states that 6 assassins are dead, 3 from each team. At this point in the movie however, there are only 5 dead. Emperor, Judgement, Tower, Heirophant, and High Priestess. 3 From omega, and 2 from Alpha. The "Devil" is the only other dead character, and he is the boss, neither a member of Alpha or Omega.

Quotes

Fool: [Chariot is showing Fool his new office] Am I smaller than everyone else is? And there's a column in the middle.
Chariot: Yeah, well, it's 'cause it's your first day. And you're a fucking loser.

Fun movie
24 July 2010 | by equazcionSee all my reviews

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.
