Michael Bay directs Ryan Reynolds, Mélanie Laurent and Manuel Garcia-Rulfo in this espionage action comedy where a set of anonymous experts fake their deaths and try to right the world’s wrongs.
Bright, brash and smug. The incoherent time structure strings together three big and not unenjoyable set-pieces. The stuff inbetween is pretty repetitive and predictable. Reynolds gets to have a few crowbarred scenes in where he sasses an authority figure and gets the girl. Very paint by numbers, but hits the dumb pleasure target if not the exact spot.
