If done well, but difficult to try, spy movies are a treat. You can either go for the mass entertainment of the James Bond, Mission Impossible or Jason Bourne films, or pick up the grittier and more grounded genre of films like The Hunt for Red October, The Recruit, Argo Huh. Our very own Raazi and Baby. In fact, Netflix’s recently released Spanish-language film, The Wasp Network, by French director Olivier Assayas, features a truly international ensemble, which is as much of a razor as its splash in history. And is characterized by the striped, unattractive work of the genre. And the glamor that most detectives actually do. I wish, where Razi showed how exciting history and reality can be without adding Bond or Bourne’s flirt, the Wasp Network settles in for a light-hearted engaging history lesson that will keep you fully invested in the mystery and Erases the mystery.

What is it about
Demonstrations against some sections of Cuban citizens at the height of the growing unrest in the 90s and against the long-running Fidel Castro government, a group of melee, highly trained women and men from Cuba infiltrate the cells of rogue terrorist Cubans Shown deflected to Miami, Florida (whose borders lie in kissing distance to those of Cuba), who, with the secret support of the US government, all spoiled the Cuban economy by hindering tourism and intimidating foreign investment. Could have been doing what he was doing throughout.
Undeniably, but with a keen interest in contemporary world history, recent political leaders, real spy rings, and deep roots between the US and Cuba, Netflix’s Wasp Network offers a good history lesson because within 2 hours someone Can also expect. . Penelope Cruz, Edgar Ramirez, Gail Garcia Bernal, Wagner Maura (Pablo Escobar from Narcos) and Ana de Aramas all make interesting performances, even when the narrative becomes pedestrian in the second half. Yorick Le Sax and Dennis Lenore’s CamaraWork are clever while Simon Jacquet’s editing keeps things possible even when the pace is fast and the lack of suspense is evident.
As previously mentioned, the lack of mystery and intrigue is a major obstacle to the functioning of the Was network. Writer-director Olivier Assayas adjusted the volume of history to two hours, and he weaves around it in a way that is admirable, but admirable, but one needs to be reminded that a detective film needs drama, suspense, thrill. Needs and we are sure it will be ‘These elements have been difficult to buy from such a high-stakes, real-life story, more so when films like Raazi and Argo have demonstrated how to do it. Choosing a more grounded approach is well and good, but not at the cost of your film. Also, for all the realism that Asaias aims for, he can’t help but avoid more than a few intrigues, flaws, and convenient narratives.
The Wasp Network was all the material for a crackerjack, fact-based spy film. Alas, it ends up being an interesting history lesson at best and a spy detective at its worst. I am going with 2.5 / 5 stars.
