It's an alien invasion story that skips all of the interesting conquest parts and all of the interesting rebellion parts to tell one small, pivotal story in between. Does it get the job done? Snooty and Goon will be the judge of that!
Enter a world where truth and lies are impossible to distinguish, where capitalism and communism duke it out for control of the world, and where one woman beats the shit out of every spy she meets all while drinking enough vodka to float a battleship. It's Snooty and Goon vs. Spy Vs. Spy!
The shortest distance between any two "spiritual sequels" is letdown. That's science.
