Entertaining and convoluted
17 November 2015 | by dennisdmcdonaldSee all my reviews

KIDON is an entertaining and convoluted "sting" movie in which an Israeli Mossad team tries to find out who is responsible for the death of a Palestinian agent in diplomatically sensitive Dubai. In the background there's a high-stakes duel between France and the United States for a massive Middle Eastern nuclear reactor construction deal.

But that's secondary. The fast-paced storyline is like a combination of SNATCH and THE USUAL SUSPECTS with a bit of BOURNE thrown in. Plus we get the usual silly computer hacker tricks straight out of MISSION IMPOSSIBLE.

No matter, we're only here for fun and the story only occasionally veers from caper into the dark side. We are, after all, being entertained by a motley group for whom larceny and murder are supposedly a way of life. But the humor, surprises, and nonstop cleverness take up the viewer's attention leaving little time to consider plot holes and improbabilities. For some another bright spot will be that the Americans and the CIA are not the bad guys in this film!
