3.5 stars - decent enough stars

I like the collaboration between ours and our allied forces. So that was a definite plus for me. It got off to a good start with the English SBS hero Stratton (played by Dominic Cooper) and the American Navy Seal -Marty (played by Tyler Hoechlin) getting into trouble in a flooded pipe.
Another american joined the team laterbut I didn't like him quite as much as Hoechlin whom I thought was the better actor of the two.
Cooper was pretty good as Stratton though his accent wavered from commonal garden to posh back and forth.
The worst actor in this though, by far, was Connie Nielsen, who being Dutch could be forgiven for putting on a diabolical version of the English cut glass accent, but as she was playing an English woman so it just didn't work. In fact nothing about her rang true and she did grate a little after a while.
Contradictory to a lot of reviewers of this film I don't think it was trying to be a James Bond film, not all MI6/Elite forces films are. I think this was quite distinctly different and I did enjoy it for that. It's just some of the support actors were a bit 1980's, what I mean by that is that the dialogue is a little forced, and too slow and carefully paced, as it could be in that era. Overall though it wasn't bad and if you want to watch a British actioner then there are worse one's than this.

Not half bad tbf.

Amazon are getting pretty good at "movieing" these days.
Boss Level was epic.

This is a little different. It's a bit James Bond, a bit Strike Force, a bit SF Run & Gun.

It's not the most original story, but it beats most political stuff that's not so subtly shoved into movies these days.

An entertaining watch.
Even though it was supposed to have some SBS stuff in it, you really don't see a lot of that.
It basically 1 SBS operator and 1 US SEAL and they do missions for MI6.

Fair enough. 🤷‍♂️
It probably does happen. It certainly wouldn't surprise me.

The body count they left around London might have raised a few eyebrows like.
They were very casual about killing the terrorists as opposed to capture. (I like that)

There was actually one guy they had tied up, they wanted information from him.
They then said they were going to shoot his 5 year old son unless he spoke - which he did.
They walk out of the place they were holding him and then "Stratton" hits a number on his cell phone, and *KABOOM* no more doing bad guy stuff for you fella!

I'd have really liked a modern day movie based on the SBS. They never get much of a look in.
It's always SAS, but usually Navy SEALs in movies. So cool to see *some* SBS action.

Don't watch it thinking you're going to see loads of that sort of stuff. Because this is a two man team with a backup staff of about 6. So probably not too close to real life. But entertaining nonetheless.

Spooks is better
Verified purchase
Unfortunately the story never really knitted together, was disjointed most of the time. The action sequences were reasonably good but the talky bits in between didn't quite ring true. There was one interminable piece of exposition where Stratton and his boss seemed to be explaining the point of the film to each other.

It filled the time but at no time did I feel connected to any of the characters.

Casting rather poor.
Verified purchase
It could have been a lot better - some of the acting was rough, and why on earth chose Connie Nielsen, a Dane, to be the boss - I have seen much better acting in 1960's B sci-fi and her accent and postures she held were appalling.
Derek Jacobi was a surprise - not mentioned except in the end credits - he, of course, is not included in my views about rough acting and his character is such a change.
The story is OK, and there is excitement spread throughout the film.
Included in Prime made it a lot more enjoyable than if I had paid for it.

At least entertaining
Verified purchase
Enjoyable action romp with a good plot. Clearly like most of the genre the need to turn off your logical brain is required but that's ok .
Personally had a problem with the male actors who although very good were not recognizable to me and I just wish they did not all have the same trending hair style and stubble beard as at some points i lost who was who. However an enjoyable watch and worth your time.

Too many poor actors
Verified purchase
Action is good. And Stratton is well played. But too many of the actors are forgettable or downright lamentable. The one who plays Summer, is so arch and affected, it becomes excruciating to watch her. And where did she get that accent? Sounds like a spoof of British English.

Dreadful acting 20 mins in, Ruined the movie for me.
Verified purchase
20 mins in and a promising film was ruined by an MI6 woman trying to be 'upper middle class posh English accent MI6 officer' and ruined the whole film for me, Gave me a taste of a B movie, Turned it off at that point. Don't waste your time with it. .

Full of explosions and thousands of bullets fired at bulletproof heroes. When the woman agent was on the top of the bus as it sped towards its target why didn't she just break the propellers off the drone to render it useless,
