- QUICK TAKE:
- Computer-Animated Action: A top-level spy must not only contend with a dangerous criminal trying to destroy his agency, but also being turned into a pigeon by a gadgets expert.
- Lance Sterling (voice of WILL SMITH) is one of the best top-secret spies around, something not lost on his ego. But when he finds himself framed for stealing an important device -- by arch-villain Killian (voice of BEN MENDELSOHN) who changed his appearance to match that of Lance and thus make the crime seem real -- he must think outside of the box.
With internal affairs agent Marcy Kappel (voice of RASHIDA JONES) hot on his trail with her assistants Eyes (voice of KAREN GILLAN) and Ears (voice of DJ KHALED), that results in a visit to gadget guru Walter Beckett (voice of TOM HOLLAND). Ironically, Lance just fired him for the unorthodox but nonetheless effect tool Walter had created for him.
Walter wants to help and Lance ends up accidentally drinking the invisibility potion Walter had been working on. But instead of that making him disappear visually, that formula turns Lance into a pigeon. Walter's theory is that no one pays attention to such birds and thus Lance will be able to get around unnoticed and thus better be able to find and stop Killian.
With that villain prepared to unleash his squadron of deadly drones onto the spy agency headquarters, Lance must try to save the day, all while having to become accustomed to and best take advantage of his new physical state.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- If they're into action-oriented computer-animated movies, they just might.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
- For action, violence, and rude humor.
