The first time I tried to watch the first one I had to give up, though that’s really no fault of the movie itself. I have a terrible time with British accents, so I couldn’t understand what anyone was saying, and therefore couldn’t follow the plot. I got as far as the part when
the girl drowned in the training facility
and I quit in fury and disgust. These are reprehensible scumbags, and they’re supposed to be the good guys? Screw that, I’m out.
I eventually made the discovery that you can have English subtitles on an English language program. (I know, I know, I’m special.) So I tried it again and was able to follow it all the way through. It was mildly entertaining and cute. It was also revealed that
the drowned girl had actually survived and was working as an analyst or some such
but I’m not sure that makes it much better. I have a feeling that detail was added in exposition because of the feedback of test audiences.
The second one just went WAY too far into camp and cutesy.
