One of those that you saw the trailer and thought that it looked good. I had forgotten about the film when I saw it that it was available on Peacock and decided to see it. I like spy films when they are done right.
The story starts as Colombian police raid a drug deal. Only the drug in this case is a device that can control any system on earth. When a cop gets the device and tries to sell it. Government agencies try to keep it off the street against an organized crime group that wants the device.
I have to say that I enjoyed the film a lot. I thought the plot was interesting and had a good handful of suspense and a lot of good action. To be honest I was going to see another film and thought about starting this one and then I could not turn it off. I think it was because the story took off early and had good twists and the action was good.
The cast is a factor that for me made the film work. Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong’o, Diane Kruger, Fan Bingbing, and Penelope Cruz worked well together and all gave great performances. The movie has a good cast overall.
If you like spy films I think this is a good option. It has good action and a good storyline. At least I had fun watching the film.
