Hadn’t seen this since it was released on DVD and… pretty much remember it being as mediocre as it was back then. Normally with these buddy films, you have one character who is off-kilter while the other is more serious, but here you had both off-kilter. Had this been today, would’ve been a good opportunity to be a spoof of Mission: Impossible; cast a normally serious actor to play opposite the outlandish character. **3.0/5**
Annoying watch, probably won’t watch again, and can’t recommend.
I like Eddie Murphy, I usually depend on him to carry movie given he’s such a big personality. Unfortunately the character he is playing is every bit as annoying as Owen Wilson and that is amplified as, like I said, Eddie Murphy is a big personality and this character doesn’t call for any nuance.
Malcolm MacDowell does a his great creepy villain vibe, and Famke Janssen (“Golden Eye”: Xenia Onatopp) makes a great spy: I wish she had done more of it.
The majority of this movie is Eddie Murphy and Owen Wilson playing some stupid characters and getting into situations that they can barely handle most of the time.
It definitely doesn’t feel like a “spy movie” the same way that someone knocking over a set of steel plate armor doesn’t. This is much closer to an action-comedy, maybe similar to “Rush Hour”, but not as good.
I’m not saying there isn’t anything to enjoy here, I’m just saying you can flip through Eddie Murphy’s filmography to find a better movie, and there are a lot of other movies out there to see.
A Decent Laugh
I always liked Owen Wilson and Eddie Murphy, so I thought, in case the movie is worth nothing, I’d still get to see some friendly faces. For better or worse, I can say it was about what I expected.
I put this movie in two categories, and I think I placed it right: it’s a decent comedy, with parts attempting to live up to an action movie. At its heart though it tries to be comedic and funny, so that’s upon what it should be judged. Thankfully, you will get the chance to laugh out loud, but unfortunately not as much as you’d like to laugh out loud at a comedy. I won’t even mention rolling on the floor.
The story isn’t something really new, but it has quite a few humorous plot twists. The so-called funny character is Kelly, who really inflicts a fair amount of pain on his adversaries, but he is just such a nicely drawn, egocentric guy, that it actually works on a comedic level. It’s always just about him, and him and then some more.
The actors have their charm but I won’t really dwell on this as they are as high profile as it gets, Hollywood style, so you know what you get. Perhaps Wilson could have spiced up his game with a bit of the unexpected, but all in all he does what he does best.
I did feel a bit let down by the special effects, with some flimsy looking explosions placed here and there. However, the host city of Budapest looked really gorgeous throughout, making it well worth it’s money shots.
To draw the line, the film isn’t great, but it’s fine enough. No brilliant ideas, or anything like that, just the usual comic stuff.
