If you want to see a big Hollywood spy/action movie with some nice cinematography, stylish lighting, etc. this is a good choice.  At first, I thought it was shot in 35mm anamorphic, but it turns out it was shot on the Alexa, I guess with some mild grain added in post, not sure, but the look was great.

 

There was one action scene at night in a harbor involving a boat chase that I think used some Canon C500's and GoPros mixed in there and that was the only stuff that didn't look as rich as the rest of the movie...

 

Otherwise, I really enjoyed the cinematography, very classy and stylish.  Great use of zooms in a retro way, too.

I believe there's a particularly brilliant article coming up in American Cinematographer which will confirm many of those observations.

Entertaining movie but a LOT of static shots that were out of focus. Very well shot and lit otherwise. Some of the night exterior lighting was superb.
