Perhaps not quite as good as The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, but good none the less ..
I watched half of this last night, and I'm very pleased thus far. It is faster paced than its predecessor, but the plot is not nearly as tight. Nonetheless, Noomi somehow continues to beguile despite the fact I find just about everything about her character repugnant.OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies
I really enjoyed this spoof on spy movies. It is French, so subtitles are the order of the day, but I feel like I caught nearly all of the innuendos. The comedy is of the politically incorrect / culturally insensitive variety, and in places is actually insightful regarding Western / Near Eastern relations. (I know, I'm lumping Egypt in with the Near East - so sue me.) If you are like me and don't appreciate the slew of American comedies which seem based mostly around illicit drug abuse (the humor of which I mostly fail to comprehend), then this will be a breath of fresh air.
