PRO AND CONS.
Three different operatives are trying to get their hands on golden eggs that once belonged to Cleopatra – FBI profiler John Hartley (Dwayne Johnson), art thief Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds) and the mysterious ”Bishop” (Gal Gadot). An action-comedy that tries to fuse spy movies with Indiana Jones adventures; packed with fights and chases, but in desperate need of a compelling story. Still, constantly changing locations (including glamorous châteaus, a brutal prison in the snowy wilderness and a Nazi bunker in a sweaty jungle) is one way of keeping us hooked.
