I agree on Kirby, I hope that we’ll see more of her, though I couldn’t say exactly how she stood out.
The movie itself was…good. it’s still basically an action film, where the original series was all heists and con jobs, but it starts out in the right foot. By the end, though, it’s all action.
I’d compare it to Timothy Dalton era Bond or Connery’s From Russia with Love - reasonably clever for a spy/action film, but still pretty light. I was hoping for more, but by the standards of the day just having an action film that is even minimally clever, however bubble gum it may be, probably does make this film stand out from the bunch. But, personally, I think that’s probably the best you can say for it.
I’d still go for Munich, Spy Games, A Clear and Present Danger, Lucky Number Slevin, etc. ahead of this one of I was looking to rewatch something.
