Argylle

When the plots of reclusive author Elly Conway’s fictional espionage novels begin to mirror the covert actions of a real-life spy organization, quiet evenings at home become a thing of the past. Accompanied by her cat Alfie and Aiden, a cat-allergic spy, Elly races across the world to stay one step ahead of the killers as the line between Conway’s fictional world and her real one begins to blur.

Review

Argylle an acclaimed film from the author of the Kingsman series. The trailer frequently featured goofy moments, spy action, Bryce Dallas Howard screaming, and a supposedly awesome cat or something. At first glance the film is very cheesy, but it seems like that’s intentional. Most of the film makes the audience think it’s one thing when it’s really another, and it reveals itself in twists that aren’t very surprising.

The cast delivers excellent performances, even if Henry Cavill’s hair is absolutely terrible. Dua Lipa’s appearance is short, but she does a great job, which is why I missed seeing her.Sam Rockwell continues an age-defying trend in Hollywood, as I forgot he’s in his mid-50s, following the likes of Tom Cruise and Jason Statham.

The film is too long and needed a better editor. I like a developed story as much as the next person, but calm down, film.

Now the fun begins. In this film, the word “ridiculous” is completely inappropriate.But it’s a lot of fun. There are so many laugh out loud moments that make up for many of the shortcomings. I don’t want to spoil the movie, but watch your blinking or you’ll miss the hilarity.

This film explores themes of motivation and the question of whether the emotions one experiences when making life decisions, even when told in the format of a spy thriller, would carry over if one had to do it all over again. Personally, I think this theory is worth exploring because I wonder whether I would make the same good or bad decisions if I were not exposed to certain stimuli or experiences.Nature versus nurture? People admit that they would like to talk to their younger selves to make sure things will get better over time or to avoid problems, but that is not enough. You never know if that would make a difference unless you eliminate those moments.

Overall, I really enjoyed this film and recommend it for its silliness alone. Don’t take the movie seriously, and I think you will too.The whole very long final sequence is a crazy suspension of disbelief, but take it.
