Nice movie, with balanced funny script and really good cast ..
23 July 2015 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

The movie idea is really nice, genuine and fresh , the events are connected perfectly and the script looked really tight.. even though there were some predictability in it and the trailer kinda exposed most of the story but i still weirdly found it intriguing and catchy.

The genre was all about "Action | Adventure | Comedy" but honestly the "real" action element only presented in the first mission we saw agent 83 does and in the last fight with 84 , so to me the Humorous Comedy shown by most of the cast was really good and it made the movie more appealing.

As for the cast, i will state those who were really awesome in the movie and did their part really well and those who were just okay, Samuel L. Jackson he was amazing with a spot on performance, This year i'v watched also in Big Game and he got the same lovable personality .. Dan Fogler, Gabriel Basso and Rob Huebel they were hilarious and i wished to see more of them.. as for Thomas Mann the guy from project x maybe the script didn't give him a chance to do much ... Sophie Turner was just good did what were asked from her ,, i mean to be fair did more than what i saw in game of thrones ;D Rachael Harris appearance was nice , and not trying to be harsh but Dove Cameron was literally acting like she wasn't into the role ... but anyway it doesn't matter .. the movie went fine.

So Overall, it is a nice movie and suitable for family night ,, the amazingly balanced funny script and the nice performance by the cast made it look like this.
