For the first part of the movie, I was disappointed. The movie starts with a very dramatic opening about a cholera outbreak that is devastating the population in Peking. Then it changes tones and becomes a strange comedy of overacting and ridiculousness. Just as I was about to give up, there is a twist in that explains things. Then the movie made more sense, and was quite enjoyable.
It is a lot of fun, zany, has interesting graphics, lots of twists, and is apparently based on a true story.
Overall, it was a great action, spy, comedy, out there movie that was really surprising considering the synopsis on Netflix.
