The 355

Eleanor Kelly

In the movie The 355 a CIA agent joins forces with other agents from around the world, together they search for a top secret weapon that fell into the wrong hands. You’d think that overall the movie has a decent plot, and that they’re all women spies is pretty inspiring, but no.

The movie has many well acclaimed actors and actresses, like Sebastian Stan, who has starred in many movies, Lupita Nyong’o, who is well known for being in Black Panther, Penélope Cruz, Diane Kruger, and Jessica Chastain all famous in their own right. 

The movie is neverending, the plot takes a long time to actually develop, and for all of the women to band together and agree to become one group. Eventually they get the top-secret weapon and don’t do anything with it, one would assume that they would destroy it but they didn’t, and it ends up in the wrong hands again. There are many back and forth exchanges, but in the end the movie lacks a cohesive plot. 

I have seen many spy movies, so I think that I have a pretty good idea of how spies work. The 355 was not a good spy movie, it had so much talent and did not reach its full potential. I do not recommend spending $19.99 on this movie.
