This film is NOT what it is advertised to be; that's the best part.
When I first saw the trailer for this film, I was disappointed. It just seemed like another spy movie with a great cast, but nothing unique. I was extremely wrong. I was completely unaware of how stylized this film would be, but man was I surprised; in a great way. The film is set in the 80s, and so the whole film is stylized as so. The least I could say is - it's damn beautiful. From the neon to the soundtrack, it's an experience. One that shall not be forgotten. Oh, and by the way, the fight scenes? They're incredible. I will say that I couldn't quite tell what the plot was during the first 20-25 minutes, but it was eventually resolved, and I had a fantastic experience viewing this film.
