Storyline

Super spy Lance Sterling and scientist Walter Beckett are almost exact opposites. Lance is smooth, suave and debonair. Walter is not. But what Walter lacks in social skills he makes up for in smarts and invention, creating the awesome gadgets Lance uses on his epic missions. But when events take an unexpected turn, Walter and Lance suddenly have to rely on each other in a whole new way. And if this odd couple can't learn to work as a team, the whole world is in peril.

ACTION AND HUMOR: ONE OF THE BEST SIGNED BLUE SKY STUDIOS
23 March 2020 | by RinoBortone91See all my reviews

One of the best films signed Blue Sky Studios. Direction not exactly impeccable, but with a lot of interesting ideas, especially in the "noisy" scenes where you usually get confused, instead here everything is crystal clear and all in detail. Excellent mixture of humor and action, also due to the charisma of the Smith-Holland couple. Bad for some important in-depth background not told, especially for the poor characterization of villain, which is merely reduced to the redundant sector of pain-revenge, but nothing not passable. A beautiful small pearl in animated films.
