The movie isn't wall-to-wall action, but there are enough action scenes to keep the pace lively. There is also a second chase scene towards the end of the movie that is perhaps even better than the opening scene's chase. I think the real strength of the movie is the comedic element. The banter is quite snappy and a few of the lines I couldn't hear because of the laughter filling the theater.
In particular Henry Cavill delivered as the slick cool spy Solo. Armie Hammer also delivered as the Russian counterpart, Illya. In many ways he plays the straight man to Cavill's comedian, which is actually the harder part to play.
The third part of the group is Gaby, played by Alicia Vikander. The part she played is the most uneven of the group. To an extent it seemed like they couldn't quite figure out her role, so she ended up being a bit of a third wheel. That being said, she didn't detract from the movie, and serves as another foil for the two main characters. Also Elizabeth Debicki did an excellent job as the female villain. Since this is a period piece, I think it's important to point out that they went through a lot of effort to get things right.
Fortunately for me, they did such a good job that it, that it didn't feel like I was being beaten over the head with the 60's. There were a number of iconic outfits, but overall it was subtle enough that I wasn't jarred out of the movie, which says a lot about the great job they did.
Also, if you've seen the trailer and thought it showed promise, then you should definitely see the movie, because the trailer doesn't show all or even most of the good parts, but gives a good sampling. Sign In. Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends.
