Review by Paul Salfen
This is Paul Salfen with your KLAK Movie Minute. In theaters now is Argylle, a fun star-studded little spy romp about a fictional spy named Argylle played by Henry Cavill that’s a figment of an author’s imagination who gets swept up into a real life spy novel situation when characters try to track her down and extract what’s going to happen next to get ahead by forcing her to write. It’s a pretty creative romp from director Matthew Vaughn with some funny hammy performances from Bryan Cranston, Sam Rockwell, Bryce Dallas Howard and Cavill. It’s lighthearted but somehow a little too long and not as sharp as Vaughn’s previous work and certainly no Bond movie but it is a pretty good big screen adventure. Throw in Dua Lipa, John Cena, Samuel L Jackson and a few other surprises for good measure and some romance, some action, and a few laughs so basically it’s got a little something for everyone but probably not enough of one thing for most people. That’s it for this week. Join me next week and every week for another Movie Minute right here on 97.5 KLAK, AMFM Magazine, and RECRD.
