Good light-hearted fun with some explosive car chases
12 November 2018 | by thekarmicnomadSee all my reviews

A woman realises her ex-boyfriend is actually a spy and, along with her best friend, get caught up in an international espionage ring.

This doesn't walk a straight path along either action or comedy - you get a bit of both. It is generally quite silly and benign but has some really fast paced, high octane action sequences (expect the odd burning and neck-snapping).

I wouldn't say this is hilarious but it is definitely entertaining. It does a good job of mixing moments of quite inspired wit with some other more puerile stuff and the banter between the two leads is quite snappy, as is the exchanges between the actual spies.

The acting is great, as are the effects, production and camera work.

Story-wise it felt about fifteen minutes too long but that is not bad for an action comedy (where normally I'm reaching for my phone half an hour before the end).

Although this has action in it, this is a firstly a comedy, so don't expect the plot to be too grounded in reality - they are not remaking Bourne here.

To be honest I was put off by the amount of one-star reviews on IMDB; I assumed this was going to be a two hour beating with the feminist bat. It honestly isn't. There are some man-jokes in there but they are well balanced, in good nature, and funny. I found the main characters easy to engage with and I was rooting for them at the end.

Don't be put off just by all the low reviews, its not the best movie ever, and won't be everyone's cup of tea, but I honestly don't think it deserves as many one stars as it has.

At worst this is a solid action movie with a bit of girl-talk.

At best this is a light comedy with great characters, lots of actions, and a sprinkling of romance. There should be something in here for everyone's main stream needs.
