Trivia

An Italian actor was cast as Victoria (Elizabeth Debicki)'s husband, Alexander. Making his starring English-language feature debut as the handsome race car driver is Italian Luca Calvani. Calling him a new discovery for worldwide audiences, producer Lionel Wigram commented: "Luca is the epitome of what we had in mind. He gives Alexander just the right air of sinister glamour that makes him credible and, at the same time, so much fun." See more »

Goofs

The helicopter shown is a Sikorsky H-34 rather than the Westland Wessex in use by the Royal Navy and RAF at the time. The Westland Wessex was a British-built turbine-powered development of the Sikorsky H-34. The Wessex had either one or two protruding exhausts on the side of the nose, depending on the model. The H-34, which was piston engine powered, has a protruding single exhaust on it's nose only on the left side. See more »

"When you hear something that sounds like a gunshot, drive."
29 February 2016 | by Zbigniew_KrycsiwikiSee all my reviews

Never watched the show, so can't compare the two, or whether or not this is a faithful adaptation of it or not, but I loved this film. It perfectly rides the fine line between straight 1960s spy movie throwback, and satire of one.

Villain is pure 1960s vamp/ femme fatale, Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer's chemistry alone makes this worth watching. Hammer's twitch as his anger reaches boiling point is a great bit of detail. Cavill really reminded me of Roger Moore's Bond, specifically from The Spy Who Loved Me. He has a suave, "Trust me, I know what I'm doing" attitude throughout.

Several scenes creatively have the action taking place in the background, while the focus is on the foreground. A perfect example, and maybe my favourite scene in the film, is Cavill sitting in a truck, basically picnicking, with a large sandwich and bottle of Chianti, while boat chase is playing out in front of him, reflected on the windscreen.

The film is rated PG13, but it doesn't look watered down to get that rating, ... Henchman's electrocution torture scene was both graphic and simultaneously funny- another case of the action playing out in the background, while Cavill and Hammer debate the fate while in the next room.

The plot is a bit of a mess, especially toward the end, but a great cast, sharp dialogue, and great attention to detail, and good action makes this a winner
