In the Spotlight

Movie Rating: 5/5

By Sumiitra Yiohan Sooriaarratchi

An explosively hilarious action comedy film that doesn’t disappoint from beginning to end (note there are a lot of perfectly timed explosion in this film).   Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Taran Killam; also written and directed by Taran Killam. What impressed me about the movie was how well the script was written. The plot follows the style of a documentary where a team of hit-men (and hit-women) led by Blake ‘The Suit’ Hammon, attempt to kill the best hit-man in the business – Gunther – while documenting the entire process in order to prove to the world that they are responsible for killing Gunther.

Filled with a motley crew of interesting characters (the team is like a who’s who of notorious criminals – explosives experts, terrorists, hackers, poison experts, snipers and Russian contract killers), we are able to witness the planning, false-starts and set-backs in all their hilarity as the team does their best to take Gunther down.  As expected Gunther is always ten steps ahead of his assailants and the team is left dumbfounded by Gunther’s brilliance.
