I really like Chris Evans and Ana de Armas. They are both extremely likable and engaging actors. Unfortunately, their new movie on Apple + does not measure up to their charisma.

Ghosted is a romantic action/adventure spy movie that finds farmer Cole (Chris Evans) thrown into the world of CIA operative Sadie (Ana de Armas) in search of a passcode to open a case that contained a dangerous weapon that arms dealer Leveque (Adrien Brody) is trying to sell.

This film gets by strictly on the two leads and their screen presence. Fact is that the story itself is so dumb that Evans and de Armas cannot elevate this material past the inane plot and silly dialogue.

There is a ton of stars making cameo appearances in this film. Sebastian Stan, John Cho, Anthony Mackie, Tate Donovan, Amy Sedaris, Ryan Reynolds, Tim Blake Nelson, and Anna Deavere Smith all make appearances in minor, or even wasted, roles.

This feels like one of those dumb Netflix movies that drop on the streamer to fill space. The only difference is that this film is on Apple TV +. Chris Evans and Ana de Armas are extremely attractive and enjoyable usually, but their work cannot save this one.
