The review update: I didn’t finish the movie. Life is just too short. It didn’t grab me at all. Maybe I was spy-thrillered out after watching The King’s Man the night before. It started to get a little more interesting near 1/3 of the movie when all the women started working together, but by then I was ready for bed. I may try to go back and finish it, and if I do, I’ll update again.
