Review – The Spy Who Dumped Me

Spy movies are seemingly about as common as any other genre - Bond, alone, has had twenty-six films - and spy spoofs are growing in number, as well. Whether they come in the form of Mike Myers's classic Austin Powers series, Rowan Atkinson's Johnny English, Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson in Central Intelligence, or any... Continue Reading →
