Ghosted is a romantic action movie from Hollywood. This new-age 2023 movie has a man-in-distress, as it deviates from the classic theme of damsel-in-distress stuff.
So, we get to see a role reversal in this movie. On one way, the lady actress Ana de Armas plays a globe-trotting and legendary CIA agent Sadie Rhodes. On the other hand, the gentleman actor Chris Evans takes the role of a simpleton Cole Turner. In the recent past, we have seen both these actors – Chris and Ana in the wonderful whodunit Knives Out.
Now, let us talk about the latest action-filled 2023 movie of these two actors.
Synopsis [official] of the Ghosted (2023) Movie
Meeting that special someone can be a real adventure. Salt-of-the-earth Cole Turner (Chris Evans) falls head over heels for enigmatic Sadie Rhodes (Ana de Armas) – but then makes the shocking discovery that she’s a secret agent. Before they can decide on a second date, Cole and Sadie are swept away on an international adventure to save the world.

What is the basic storyline?
The romantic life of Cole Turner (Chris Evan) and Sadie Rhodes (Ana de Armas becomes complicated when Cole gets pulled into the deadly and dangerous world of modern-day spies. No doubt, the easy-going and attractive pairing of Chris and Ana in this film certainly helped. Also, we loved this modern-day idea of role reversal. Three big cheers to that, yup.
What are our feelings about it?
As we told you all earlier Ana de Armas and Chris Evans have starred together in Knives Out (2019) and The Gray Man (2022) movies. We have already reviewed Knives Out and we will do the same with The Gray Man, which stars an Indian actor Dhanush. Although most of the critics have criticised this film, we liked this feel-good and light-hearted movie.
For us, it is a cheerful and total time-pass movie. We also liked its high-spirited adventure streak. No wonder. it became the most-watched film debut in Apple TV+ history.
So, this spy/romantic drama is worth a watch at least.

|Listlessly wafting between action, comedy, and romance without ever solidifying into a satisfying whole, this film earns a chorus of boos.

|This film isn’t great, but if you’re in the mood for a fun, lightweight action movie, there are definitely worse options.

Focus on the Ghosted Word
No, this movie is not about Ghosts. In other words, this movie is not a horror film.
The meaning of the “Ghosted” word
Well, according to the Cambridge Dictionary, Ghosting is abruptly ending communication with someone without explanation. This concept most often refers to romantic relationships but can also describe disappearances from friendships and the workplace.
And this is what happened when Sadie Rhodes suddenly disappeared from the life of Cole Turner and stopped communicating with him.
Focus on the lead characters of this movie
Sadie Rhodes (Ana de Armas)
Sadie Rhodes (Ana de Armas) is a legendary CIA operative.
Not many people are aware of her real identity. She (some people believe that a fabled female CIA agent is a man with amazing skill sets) is “The Taxman” in the global spy world. And herein the stereotyping creates all sorts of problems in the lives of Cole Turner and Sadie Rhodes.
Cole Turner (Chris Evans)
Cole Turner (Chris Evans) is a simple everyday common man.
He is a vendor in the farmers market of Washington DC. Nursing a broken heart, he falls head-over-heels in love with Sadie Rhodes. Thus, he chases her across the continents. So, a simple guy gets romantically linked with a female spy and their lives become complicated.
Focus on the fate of Sadie & Cole in this movie
Fate of Sadie & Cole
In the end, both Sadie Rhodes and Cole Turner act as (spy) partners and take down the bad guys in the end. Having completed their dangerous and life-threatening missions, both of them decide to give another shot to their love life. And then perhaps live happily ever after with each other.
