“Mr. & Mrs. Smith” Review

Mr. & Mrs. Smith: Created by Donald Glover, Francesca Sloane. With Donald Glover, Maya Erskine, Paul Dano, Parker Posey. Two strangers land jobs with a spy agency that offers them a life of espionage, wealth, and travel. The catch: new identities in an arranged marriage.

Sharing similar concepts to the two other movies and television series by the same name, this version works best when it’s doing it’s own thing instead of doing what’s been done before. The sound track, action, acting, and character developments are all top notch, but there’s times towards the end of season one that it hews too closely to the Pitt/Jolie version that I love so much, though I did love the ultimate resolution with the nosey neighbor. I am extremely unhappy with the storyline with the cat, imho a death of a family pet shouldn’t be used for dramatic effect and ranks among fridging girlfriends to me. It was the lone distraction in a great series, but I know many people (myself included) don’t like watching violence toward animals, especially ones that depend on the kindness of people to survive.
