(trailer review) - The 355

*Insert 90's movie trailer voice* From the studio that brought you Jason Bourne. 

Unfortunately, this trailer feels lacking and I'm not quite sure what it is.  I'd like to see it but the trailer for Jason Bourne had more fighting in it I'm sure.  Or maybe it seemed more high-octane.  There was a small small explosion in the trailer and Jessica rapels down to the lower floor but, show me something cool like bigger stunts or more of that motorbike chase.  So essentially, Oceans 8 meets extraction and a touch of Mission Impossible.  The climbing on the outside of the building is definitely a call out to Ghost Protocol though and I like that.  I feel like saying from the studio that brought you Jason Bourne has skewed my view before I even started getting into it.

I just don't know.  I just don't want this to be a Charlies Angels as this definitely has potential and I'm loving the diversity, I mean, Lupita is black and British.  Representation matters.  It feels like I'm going to have a lot to say about this movie because it would seem Simon Kinberg the director, the last and only other film he directed was Dark Phoenix (X-Men movie), but he has helped to produce many other movies, some good some not so good and he's written for some movies I really liked like, Jumper, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, This Means War and Guy Richie's Sherlock Holmes, but also written for some duds.  We will see.

Also it's all good saying from the studio that brought you Jason Bourne, but it is the same studio that brought us Bourne Legacy, I mean, let's keep it real.

Directed by Simon Kinberg and starring Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong'o, Penélope Cruz, Diane Kruger, Bingbing Fan, Sebastian Stan & Édgar Ramírez
