Quick Review

This 60'ies era spy movie has an excellent dry sense of humor and simply works as fun entertainment, done with style.

The three leads play off each other to great effect and especially Armie Hammer underplays his part in a way that is really entertaining.

There is a surprising warmth to the movie and I am still hoping for a sequel.
