CHICAGO – There’s something to be said for a well done ass kicker in January that provides an entertaining distraction from the ice and snow outside. “The 355” is not it, offering a typical quick cutting action thriller that plods along in the most formulaic and least exciting manner possible. There’s nothing in this movie that hasn’t been done to death already.

HollywoodChicago.com Oscarman rating: 2.0/5.0
Rating: 2.0/5.0

Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong’o, Penelope Cruz, and Diane Kruger make up this butt kicking collection of spies. They’re all elite operatives from four international agencies who must join forces and work through their own emotional baggage to retrieve an all powerful hard drive from falling into the wrong hands.

“The 355” opens in theaters on January 7th. Featuring Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong’o, Penelope Cruz, Diane Kruger and Sebastian Stan. Screenplay by Simon Kinberg and Theresa Rebeck. Directed by Simon Kinberg. Rated “PG-13”
