Decent enough Spy/Family movie. Worth watching
27 January 2017 | by huguesptSee all my reviews

Quite a few reviewers bag this movie, I just don't know what people expect these days. I guess they expect every single movie made to be in their taste and a Billion Dollar AAA+++ movie. Anyway, as a spy movie, it is not a 10/10 but it is also a good family movie (8) above, you know your own children. Normal violence you would expect from a Spy Thriller but not as bad as the XXX movies. There is a lot of family values and struggles that many families can relate too and I believe the writers portrayed that very well. Costner's acting in this was about an 8/10 as were the others excluding his on screen daughter who I thought was superb. Costner delivers a believable performance/character, just not his best. The action is frequent enough to keep you entertained along with the Costner on Screen family and another On Screen Family who have lessons for us all. The filming and angles I thought where great and in some cases extremely difficult, although in this day and age, anything can be done on a computer.

All in all this will appeal to those who like a Spy Thriller, a Family movie, bit do not expect this to be XXX or one of the latest James Bond movies. Worth watching, an 8/10 overall and I would watch it gain. I guess if they threw more millions at it, it could have been better received by some of the harsher critics on here.
