The basic idea as shown in the trailer is that 2 CIA agents happen to be dating the same girl. She doesn't know that they know each other and they decide to compete for her affection without letting on that they know each other. As time goes on, they use all sorts of spy gadgets and techniques to try and undermine the other relationship.
I was a little surprised to see the degree they went in the development of the CIA theme. We knew the guys were agents going in, but the initial setup is something out of an action movie as they infiltrate a Hong Kong skyrise to try and intercept some big baddies.
Interestingly I felt that the greatest chemistry was actually between the two male leads rather than between either of them and the lady they were pursuing. The guys just felt so comfortable and natural working with each other and their interactions were fun, smooth and believable.
A lot of the spy action and technology was naturally stretched beyond believability but worked in terms of our acceptance levels for these types of film. The overall relationship setup and delivery was done well and the ending was satisfying. While I don't know that I'd watch this movie over and over, it was a lot of fun and I'd watch it again if the opportunity presented itself.
3.5 out of 5 stars
