The 355 doesn’t really come close to meeting its potential, so SKIP IT. But if you’re not ponying up 20 bucks, it’s possibly an entirely passable yeah-sure-why-not kind of watch.

CIA agent Mason “Mace” Brown joins forces with a rival German agent, a cutting-edge computer specialist and a Colombian psychologist when a top-secret weapon falls into the hands of a group of mercenaries. Together, the four women embark on a breakneck mission to save the world while staying one step ahead of a mysterious figure who’s tracking their every move.
However, the movie did have its good moments. A stand-out component is the idea of female empowerment, even down to the title. “The 355” is named after the only female spy that George Washington hired during the American Revolution — whom he called “Agent 355” to keep her identity a secret.
The 355 May Not Be Based on Real Events, but It Was Still Inspired by a True Story. The new female-centred action-spy thriller, The 355, is finally on its way to our screens after a long wait due to the pandemic.
