Set in the early 1960’s this film is a fresh take on the television series from the 60’s of the same name. The film follows a CIA agent (Henry Cavill) and a KGB agent (Armie Hammer), the two must team up regardless of their differences to stop a common enemy. Also starring Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki and Hugh Grant.
I loved this film, it reminded me of Kingsman only set in a different time period. I thought it was very stylish and fresh. Very comical in places which gave the film a light atmosphere. What I liked as well was that it was a little different from, let’s say all films because the guy doesn’t get the girl in the end. He almost does but then they’re interrupted and she leaves and we’ll never know if they see each other again. It’s got a lot of action and drama in it to keep you hooked from start to finish.
