Chris Rock plays a dual role as a CIA agent and his twin brother (separated by adoption as infants) who didn't know of each other's existence. When the agent is killed in the middle of a deal, the CIA pays a visit to his brother, a small-time bookie with a good heart and an aversion to 'suits'. He is talked into playing the role of his brother in order to complete the deal that was in progress.
Anthony Hopkins' talent makes the best of the rather mediocre script given to his character, and his character becomes a character you sympathize with and root for.
There are many laughable moments in this movie, and it moves along at a very good pace ... there are some predictable turns but enough unpredictability to keep you guessing.
I left the movie with the thought "I'm glad I went; it was well worth seeing".
Oscar-caliber? No. Good entertainment? Yes; definitely. Put this on your summer movie list; you won't be sorry you did.
Much of the hilarity and charm of this film comes from that BAM--and it comes through. Does anyone expect Anthony Hopkins to be anything but dry as an FBI Agent? I mean, his boss, after all, seems to be 30 years younger than him. Why is he taking orders? Why does he have a crew of geeky 30-somethings to handle, as well as groom Jake Hayes for a critical job?
It isn't perfect. I'll bet Chris Rock made up 40% of his lines on the spot (like, what does C.I.A. stand for?). Anyone expecting "Three Days of the Condor" gets what is expected, disappointment. Taken for what it is (such as, why is one of the head criminals an ex-K.G.B. Colonel named "Vas" which is at best an OLD nickname for an out-of-date Russian first name.....it moves, it is funny, and is definitely worth two viewings, so at least, well, $9.99. And there are so FEW comedies worth the time these days!!!
In the 2002 "Bad Company" a victim in "Silence of the Lambs" (Smith) is a very friendly CIA colleague of the former and future Hannibal Lecter (Hopkins), at which, one might fall over laughing at this casting. In the 2002 "Bad Company" Hopkins chews gum while shooting at villains. Shakespearean educated actors as Wild Bills. Only in America. "Bad Company" 2002 DVD sells for shipping costs, the disk lists for $.01 plus $2.88 USA First Class mailing. Viewers will be challenged to top that entertainment value.
