Cert 12A Stars 3
This silly, sweet and very self-aware espionage action comedy sees former wrestler Dave Bautista in his best leading role so far as a CIA secret agent taking on his toughest challenge.
A fan favourite from Marvel’s Guardian of the Galaxy films due to his dynamite dead pan delivery and a willingness to be the butt of jokes, he makes an entertaining double act with a streetwise 9 year old.
Utterly un-awed by her super-sized co-star, Chloe Coleman is a wonderfully confident charmer who plays the sarcastic and tech savvy young subject of a CIA surveillance operation.
She’s the estranged niece of a ruthless arms dealer who’s trying to get his hands on some plutonium.
There’s surrogate father-daughter bonding, ice skating, puppy dog shenanigans and the cold blooded treatment of a goldfish.
I enjoyed hanging out on the stakeout so much I was almost disappointed when the bad guys arrived for the explosive finale.
A far smarter and funnier film than the trailer suggests, I laughed far more than I thought I would and so will you.
