The fast paced plot went straight to my bloodstream and made it impossible to breathe. All useful qualities from their perspective. Ben is still a spy, after all, still an assassin. It is most likely not targeted towards me either, probably more towards boys who are a little older than me. I just loved everything, and I believe this will make an amazing movie.
