There is acting with the eyes and then there is Ian Hunter. Yet, he is outdone by a Baboon who can throw explosives and use sign language to curse out those who displease him.
The sets in the film are wonderful ranging from a space station type headquarters to an underground stone layer full of crocodiles. Duncan Jax may not pull off the charisma of James Bond but he sure does try.
A battle of opposites, Sybil Danning plays the action hero who doesn't say many words who is on a quest to find Wings Hauser, a God fearing, scene chewing, committed painter. Both bring some pretty fun elements to the action plot, highlights include Hauser asking a man in a box if he can breath just to shoot bullets into it for relief, and a stuffed polar bear on wheels.
Like all Nolan's films there will be a mainstream backlash about how dumb the film is, which will focus on plot holes, exposition, and things like Michael Caine's insane last scene.

I actually felt an emotional jolt when a younger brother jumps into his brothers arms after a night in jail.
