Verdict – 3/5

 

Pros –
1) John Woo redefined stylized action movies 30 years ago. David Leitch is adding a new chapter in this genre. Neon lightings, retro wave music, hand-to-hand combat, single sequence shot are key elements of his direction.
2) End Credits : Under Pressure – Queen ft. David Bowie
3) James McAvoy as Percival – his hungover, show-up-late, don’t-know-which-way-is-up act.

 

Cons –
1) Mediocre cold-war spy-thriller. Style over substance.

 

Quote –
“It’s a double pleasure to deceive the deceiver.”
