The film does have it's tongue planted firmly in it's cheek and and is saved from being a complete dud by it's humor, soundtrack and visuals. The '60's Europe recreation is "fab" and the wardrobe department worked overtime to get everything right. Although how exciting can it be watching the two leads argue over women's fashions?
Henry Cavill looks the part as Agent Solo but has no personality. Arnie Hammer works hard on his accent as Illya but plays him as a big Russian bear. Hugh Grant co-stars in a small but significant role, especially if you are a fan of the original T.V. show. The femme fatale is played by Alicia Vikander and she is an absolute delight to watch. The other female lead, Elizabeth Debicki, makes a fine icy, cool villain. What can it say about the film when the two featured women are more interesting than the two main male characters?
