It seems to take a lot of effort to get the whole family to watch a film these days but this did it. Liked the fact that the female agent, who looked to be 007's love interest, didn't become too important (and at times proved useful). The shower scene female was also quickly dispatched having served her purpose, even if a 'waste of a good scotch'. After that we got on with the action which provided some originality in places. Light entertainment that did it's job without too much annoyance.
