Plenty of car chases, moral ambiguity and a serious body count, but this loose adaptation of There Are No Spies falls into no man’s land.
As well-made a faith-based movie as you're likely to see, with the professional polish you'd expect from a studio-backed film like this.
Nowhere near as intriguing as the novel it's based upon. In fact it feels more like "Touched by an Angel: Teen Edition."
Plays like an inside joke, offering moments of diversion and offbeat humor but never amounting to anything more than a curiosity.
Tries to cram four stories into just over 90 minutes. Star-studded and easy on the eyes, but lacks a method to its shock-jock madness.
