The whole cast is great, including Rose Byrne and Jude Law but the real standout has to be Jason Statham. Rather than his regular winking nodding style of humour it's a full on comedy character and he earns the biggest laughs as bumbling special agent Rick Ford.
The good news is - he'll be back.
Talking to Empire, director Feig said he's not done with the world:
“That’s another world that I don’t want to walk away from. It's the first thing I did that I set up to be a possible franchise and Melissa is dying to do it. I have a story for it, and a funny idea that will kick it off that involves Statham.”
Sounds good, and considering the first film managed to pull down close to $250 million on a modest budget the studio is likely to be along for the ride. The best part is that he's going to be the same ridiculous character, according to Feig: Will he get any more self-aware in the sequel? No, god no. He’ll get less self-aware.”
