Mostly enjoyable fun thrill ride Spy caper in the style, and with a feel of a Mission Impossible or modern Bond movie, but with the odd Marvel elements thrown in.

Falls a little flat towards the end, I feel, and doesn't quite hit the mark.

...Mainly, I think, because I was expecting a Marvel movie... more Superhero elements (which are in here, but not to the extent you'd anticipate) rather than spy movie... but also because even as a spy movie, it borrows too much from those kind of films, and you've seen it all before, and better from the likes of Bourne, and those other two franchises I mentioned... except watered down a bit for this audience, and a little diluted, and the impact lost by the addition of those occasional fantastical super-hero elements.

Cast is great though, Florence Pugh steals the show a bit, and probably the weakest is Winstone... not that he is bad, it's just his character is a paint by numbers villain that doesn't impress much (still, nice easy pay day for our Ray!).

The only other gripe, is a seemingly small thing, but an odd choice, nonetheless:

Johansson's widow wears mainly White! (?)

They've spent all these years building an identity for this character based around that slinky black business, then when she gets her own movie.... white.


White Widow?
