Thoughts

Loved this! From start to finish it was brilliant. Funny, good story and a legitimate spy action thriller underneath it all. I didn’t even see the twist coming, although probably should have done. Loved the relationship between Kunis and McKinnon and how it evolved and eventually got closer.

We rented this movie on the Apple TV but afterwards wished we had bought it, so there can’t be a bigger recommendation than that.
