OSS 117: Cario - Nest Of Spies

1

Amusing spy spoof, but becomes tiresome

The clumsy title hides an amusing spy spoof built around a clueless secret agent dispatched to ’50s Cairo to defeat a fundamentalist rebellion.

More Austin Powers than 007, the tuxedo-clad Jean Dujardin makes an entertaining hero in a lavish affair that takes a satirical look at France’s
imperialist past and snobbish disdain for the world at large.

It’s more fun than Quantum Of Solace, but endless ribbing at genre clichés becomes a bit tiresome. No extras.
