The Spy Who Dumped Me

This movie was anything, but predictable and typical.

You think you’re going to see a fun, light-hearted action right? Wrong. This movie contains every possible genre that could be imagined, but in the best way. It’s filled with action, romance, tons of comedy, plot twists, and even death with some gore. Although this movie is Rated-R, due to language and gun violence, this movie is not inappropriate for any age of a mature teenager.

Now, how could a movie possibly hold all of these features, but still not be considered a “cheesy, over the top” movie? That would be compliments of the all-star women leads: Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon. Their comedic timing, wit, and ability to act as having a strong- best friend relationship, makes it impossible not to love this strong women duo. As this movie is filled with honorable mentions: the creepy Ivanna Sakhno, the kind and sweet Sam Heughan, and the cute deceased boyfriend: Justin Theroux, Mila and Kate make every moment of the movie suspenseful, action-filled, heart (and gut) wrenching, and completely hilarious.

This plot was so well written with plot twists and action in nearly every scene. There isn’t one scene that was “boring” or “slow” throughout the entirety of the movie. The lead Audrey, Mila Kunis, has been dating a man she really liked, and he suddenly dumps her. She is then kidnapped by the C.I.A. and told that her ex-boyfriend, Drew, was a spy. They release her and soon after, Audrey and Morgan, Kate McKinnon, are targeted by spies for something that Audrey’s ex left with her. Drew talks to Audrey and explains that he dumped her to protect her, but she must deliver the trophy he left at her house to save millions of lives. The two women are determined to deliver the package and deem themselves spies on their own.

There isn’t much else I could say about the plot, because I would spoil something. The previews were perfectly vague enough to not make the movie predictable, yet perfectly detailed enough to make you want to go see it. This movie is a must see. It is definitely up there for my favorite movie of 2018, and definitely the best Rated-R movie I’ve seen this year.

RATING: 94%
