Starring Will Smith and Tom Holland and Ben Mendelsohn
The worlds greatest spy, Lance Sterling (Will Smith), gets framed for stealing dangerous tech. His only chance to catch the real bad guy and clear his name is turning to Walter Beckett (Tom Holland), a disgraced guy from the gadgets lab.
- There are moments so stupid it hurts to watch, but overall, there’s a weird charm to the movie.
- It’s definitely got some Hollywood preaching going on in there. Can’t we all just get along? Fire fighting fire makes a bigger fire, etc. Bad guys are people too.
- They went all Disney on Beckett’s mother. Kinda uncalled for.
- I get it’s a kid’s movie, but the humor is more juvenile than most animated flicks. More about pratfalls and potty humor than anything else.
- Flip side, there were some genuinely hilarious moments. My favorite moment was the subtitle from Lovey (I was aiming for your face.)
- Is it worth seeing? Yes, but I’d say moreso if you have somebody who falls in the target group of about 10-12 years old.
- Is it worth seeing twice? Nope.
- Am I glad I saw it? Jury’s still out on that one.
Harmless kiddie flick about Will Smith being turned into a pigeon.
