Surprised that a few of the reviewers didn't enjoy this. I certainly did and felt it was well made , well acted and an enjoyable story line. It has set it's self up for follow up films and I would be one that would be happy to watch the next one.

Saw this the other week and thought it was pretty good.

It is all about the style, but the leads more than hold their own against the sharply tailored suits and elegant locations and who watches a Bond or Mission Impossible film for the plot anyway 7.5/10

I really enjoyed this film. The two leads were easy on the eye, and I would certainly go and see a follow up film.

It made a change to have no Computer Equipment and Programmer saving the world.

Enjoyed David Beckham's Cameo as The Projectionist too.

8/10 for me.

Really underwhelmed. The trailer gave me that "must see" vibe, but I think I fell asleep a few times in the cinema. Could've been so much better for me

5/10

I really enjoyed this. Retro feel was good and all three leads seemed well cast and to be enjoying themselves greatly. A good yomp in typical Guy Ritchie style.

8/10 from me.

I think I liked this film more than I should just because Henry Cavill is in it. Watched this twice and on the 2nd screening thought it was quite bland. Nice to see the female characters stealing the show though. 5/10

I watched this a couple of days ago and enjoyed it particularly how they retained the 60s setting. A fairly slick film that could have been a little better polished but otherwise an enjoyable spy caper. 7/10
