Argyle

I know there have been some brutal reviews of Argyle, but that didn’t stop me from going out and giving ti a chance. I’m so glad I did! This movie delivered 100% on the coming attractions. It was fast paced and immensely silly – in a good way. I don’t know how anyone could have watched the trailer and not expected the over the top insanity Argyle gleefully delivers. Don’t think of it as a Bond-type film. Think of it as The Expendables on Ice.

A few words about the cast – wow. Sorry that’s only one word. The list should speak for itself: Bryce Dallas Howard, Henry Cavill, Sam Rockwell, Bryan Cranston, Samuel L. Jackson, and John Cena for comic relief. I don’t think you could make a bad movie with this crew if you tried. Catherine O’Hara is in it too, but is strangely not listed by IMDB.

Technically the movie is a marvel of editing. I can only imagine how meticulously every shot had to be lined up to allow the swift shifts between reality and the alternate reality the main character experiences on a regular basis. I would not be surprised to see award nominations for film editing – you read it here first!
