In the film, super spy Orson Fortune (Jason Statham) must track down and stop the sale of a deadly new weapons technology wielded by billionaire arms broker Greg Simmonds (Hugh Grant). Reluctantly teamed with some of the world’s best operatives (Aubrey Plaza, Cary Elwes, Bugzy Malone), Fortune and his crew recruit Hollywood’s biggest movie star Danny Francesco (Josh Hartnett) to help them on their globe-trotting undercover mission to save the world.—Lionsgate
Lacking in jokes. Lacking in real thrill. Middle of the road spy flick.
More bad: the jokes arent really funny. Missing the mark almost every time. That’s two down.
Even more bad: the supporting actors are bland. All of them. That’s three down.
Beware all you Jason Statham fans, this movie surely aint a terrible spy action flick, but it is definitely not Jason Statham’s best either, because I have seen all his moves before, done better. And although the quirky and wonderful actress Aubrey Plaza is co starring I must admit that even her role is not her best either.
So what we have here is a below average spy flick, that just wont get really exciting.
Still worth a watch, but dont expect any originality or real thrill. It’ll do as a mindless throwaway spy flick.
