Detonated? Looks like ‘Argylle‘, Matthew Vaughn’s new feature film did not please specialized critics as much. The film, which hits Brazilian cinemas tomorrow, February 1st, garnered more negative comments than positive ones, debuting on Rotten Tomatoes with an approval rating of 34%.
With a star cast made up of Bryce Dallas Howard, Henry Cavill, John Cena, Bryan Cranston, Catherine O’Hara and Dua Lipa, who makes her debut on the big screen, the production is inspired by the book of the same name, written by Elly Conway.
The plot follows Elly, “the reclusive author of a series of best-selling spy novels, whose idea of happiness is a night at home with her computer and her cat, Alfie. But when the plots of Elly’s fiction books — centering on secret agent Argylle and in their mission to uncover a global spy syndicate — begin to mirror the covert actions of a real-life spy organization, quiet nights at home become a thing of the past.”
But, after all, what are Rotten Tomatoes critics saying about the production? For MovieWeb’s Julian Roman, “Argylle is a complicated and spectacularly wacky action comedy packed with bombastic revelations.” Now for Matt Singerfrom ScreenCrush, the film features “a talented cast trapped in a never-ending story with a fake cat.”
