Turned out to be much better than expected. I was worried that the change of director would ruin it, and it definitely isn't on the same level as the others, but Nicolas Bedos was very faithful to the first two movies. My expectations about OSS 1001, the new agent, were subverted in a good way. Some very funny moments. If you liked the first two movies, you should definitely give it a watch.

Found the movie really refreshing, as most movies today are politically correct and try to fit a certain type of agenda. I am a millennial and I enjoyed it, as there are some comments that you need to be born in the 60s to understand it. Saw the OSS117 movies before and this is the best.

Not so funny than the two previous episodes, this OSS lacks humor (it was more childish, not so provocative as what you would expect from OSS), a better writing (some scenes just sound fake, or repetitive), and more rhythm (a few scenes feel like forever without adding anything to the story). The actors do their best though, Jean Dujardin is excellent as always.

I was expecting more after a lot of advertising on tv, press, online. Not worth the hype.

I believe you need to be born in the 60s to fully understand the mix of derision and nostalgia of this movie, surely the reason why most did not get it, considering the reviews.

The first half is better than the second, though.

Low below par on this 3rd installment of the "parodisiac" OSS117. And for his mission on the African continent there was nothing "afrodisiac" either.

OSS 117 Alerte Rouge en Afrique Noire looked like a cheap version of the original episodes. Lack of characters, lack of situation, lack of places, depths, lack of good dialogues and more crucially lack of laughters from the spectators 'seats.

Despite the obvious will of making OSS 117 the object of its own conservative joke the whole movie is étriqué and only consists in the slashing of all what made the French espion an interesting character to laugh with. In this installment we don't even laugh with him, we pity him.

Kuddos to Jean Dujardin's amazing performance despite the curse the writers cast on his character. Dujardin filled the shoes the best he could. A pity he wasn't provided the play one of the rare French stars deserve instead of a costard mal taillé.

I have to say upfront I am a huge fan of the 2 previous movies directed by Michel Hazanavicius, I was nervous for this one because I hold them in high regards, and director Hazanavicius was not coming back because "he didn't like the script".

I'm pleased to report the movie still succeed to make us laugh and entertain, Jean Dujardin is back in strong form. His comedic timing is always golden and his facial expressions haven't changed. The aesthetic was also a treat, like the 2 previous movies the set design, color palette and exotic locations makes it a beautiful film to look at. Maybe not as good as the other ones but still solid.

I would say that the story/plot is probably the weakest point of the film, it drags a bit with a 2-hour runtime and they try to introduce a new agent played by Pierre Niney that feels a bit forced and didn't really work for me, it was hit & miss (mostly miss) with this character. It feels like they didn't really knew how to end this movie, but it didn't really take away from my enjoyment of it.

This type of comedy can be tricky in today's politically correct day & age, but I thought they stayed true to Hubert and didn't held back. Now that he's going to Africa you can expect him to be maladroit... and he is. It never feels mean however, you can tell he's just an idiot who doesn't know better.

Overall even though it does feel inferior to Rio Ne Répond Plus and Caire Nid d'Espions, it's something I know I'm going to watch again for Jean Dujardin's star performance as Hubert. Bonisseur De La Bath.
