No. Dear god, no.

Just…. why?

No.

What a challenge it must be to take a comic strip with an extremely simple premise (two spies that blow each other up) and turn it into a movie with a plot more complex than just two spies blowing each other up. If done well, it could be quite funny, I think. Don’t know if it can be, though, because… well… look what you have to work with.

I’ll be keeping my eye on it either way. It might be interesting.

Hmmm…so often things with very simple premises get turned into pretty terrible movies but I do think it’s possible for something like this to be done right so…we’ll see, we’ll see. Not going to hold my breath though.

Why am I thinking of that Mario Bros. movie right now? Could the stench be the coming from the same type of moronic thinking?

I’ve already started making big plans to miss this one entirely.

Can’t we just let Antonio Prohias’ lines on paper speak for themselves?
