This is a stylish 1960s-style spy picture with no pretense to anything but entertainment. Never having had the pleasure of catching the television series by the same name, I must admit I have no benchmark to offer, but I certainly have a glowing opinion of it and a matching recommendation for it.
First things first: the two guys, i.e., the CIA agent and the KGB operative are eye-candy. But they’re more than strong jawlines and mesmerizing voices; they’re as dapper as they come in their Italian tailored suits and impeccable manicures, and know what they want and where they’re going. The plot itself might have been a bit more convoluted than necessary but the super-snazzy and elaborately retro-looking period sets keep your attention span alive.
Overall, well worth the price of admission. If you have fun company, it definitely gets even better.
