Mr. and Mrs. Smith – Filtered
Over time, John Smith (Brad Pitt) and his wife, Jane (Angelina Jolie), have grown distant. Taking refuge in their work, they are in the habit of keeping secrets. Neither of them even knows what the other does for a living. While each thinks that the other has a commonplace job, they are both actually assassins. Worse still, they work for competing organizations so that, without knowing it, they are enemies living under the same roof. But all of that changes when John and Jane receive the same target and quickly identify each other as the enemy. Suddenly, their marital conflicts turn into something far more dangerous as each tries to protect his and her respective organization by killing the other. So with equally deadly skills, Mr. and Mrs. Smith find that, in more ways than one, they have finally met their perfect match.
This filtered edition of “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” is relatively clean when compared to the original. Almost all of the sexual aspects have been eliminated along with the language. But there is still quite a bit of violence which includes multiple bombings, multiple killings with machine guns, and a guy getting a knife stuck in his leg.
Even though it was pretty far-fetched, I enjoyed watching Mr. and Mrs. Smith. There were so many shootings and bullets flying everywhere that I was amazed that they both came through basically unscathed!! It was somewhat reminiscent of the old TV show, The “A” Team- all those bullets and no one gets hit!! But, the acting was good, the action was fast, and the ending was happy. Keeping in mind the violence aspect, it is a good action flick to watch.
