Cynicism plays an important, but not exclusive, role here in making the Smiths’ relationships entertaining and interesting, even when they are not assassins, but just a couple who have lived together for a long time and no longer really get along with each other, they are very amusing. The humor and action together, make this movie a kick-ass movie.
