This was fun, albeit a tad long. Really liked the setup and twist.
Spoiler:
although not sure about the double twist
. I did feel a few pieces were too OTT in a wink wink (literally in one) way that I didn’t care for.

Also, a few scenes you could definitely tell were green screen which was really distracting.

I don’t know why, but the end scene game me The Saint vibes.

Right down the middle action/spy/thriller with corny writing and stunt casting.

I feel asleep a couple of times but didn’t miss anything.

I’d give it a C or 2.5 stars.

I really thought Argylle and Wyatt were gonna have a “moment” there at the end… but there were “fireworks.”

I actually didn’t hate this. Yes, it was about 30 minutes too long and yeah, there were a couple sequences that were so ludicrous that they need to be seen to be believed but damnit this movie was just charming. Even some of the overly silly scenes had a charm to them that was hard to dislike.

Im not sure how much replay value this has but its good for at least one viewing as long as you go in knowing its overly goofy.

I did laugh harder than I should have when Wilde threw his back out during the Paris fight. Probably because I just threw my back out the other day so it was still fresh in my head.

I just watched this. I didn't care for the opening sequence one bit, but as the film went on, I grew to like it. As others have said, it could easily lose 30 minutes, and some of the CGI is atrocious, but it is a fun time and the characters likeable. The hook at the end was weird, but I wouldn't mind seeing it explored.

And, hey, Bryce Dallas Howard is super cute in this and Sam Rockwell is easy to root for.

This did start off a bit rough but overall it was entertaining and I probably would've like it more w/o the double twist at the end. But, damnit if I didnt end up liking this alot. Rockwell was fantastic and Bryce was good too.

I’m watching it right now on Apple TV. Definitely over the top silliness. Okay way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon.

I enjoyed this film but it is indeed one odd duck of a film, such a wonderfully weird and quirky movie.
