    Even with the multiple twists that come throughout The 355, the plot threads continue to weave themselves around a mysterious hard drive. Simply called “the drive” by the film’s characters, the device is introduced in the first scene of the film and switched hands many times between intelligence agents and master criminals. Agents attempt both to buy or steal the drive for their respective agencies but ultimately the man behind the curtain attempting to possess the drive is a powerful man named Elijah Clarke (Jason Flemyng). But what is the draw to the seemingly innocuous device? As The 355vaguely explains the tech, the drive contains a special decryption program that can access any system. This makes it a fair rival to any of the gadgets seen in the Bond movies. At one point in the movie when the device is in enemy hands, it is used to cause city-wide power outages and plane crashes. Loose gun CIA agent Mace (Chastain) and company are terrified by what the use of this device might...

    The allure of the drive brings about the biggest twist of The 355in the form of Nick Fowler’s (Sebastian Stan) betrayal of Mace. As colleagues, the pair began their pursuit of the drive together supposedly on behalf of the CIA. The two start up a romance before being separated in an intense chase for the drive. Although Mace is told that Nick died in the chase, she is shocked to come face-to-face with him once again (mirroring the history of the MCUs Bucky Barnes, another Stan character) after her CIA superior, Larry Marks (John Douglas Thompson) encourages her to go rogue to retrieve the drive in his honor. Nick reveals to Mace that he has been working for Clarke the whole time and that he has been sent to the art auction in Shanghai to bid on a piece of art in which the drive is hidden. It is only a little later revealed that Marks was also on Clarke’s payroll and that Mace was duped by both men. Nick and Marks were using Mace’s skills and rebellious streak to their advantage to o...

    Nick’s betrayal is revealed in The 355s most glamorous set-piece, a lucrative art auction at a gallery in Shanghai (where Mission Impossible IIIs Ethan Hunt traveled in search of the Rabbit’s Foot). After turning the drive into Marks, it is quickly stolen again by an agent of the Chinese MSS (Bingbing Fan). Former MI6 agent Khadijah Adiyeme (Nyong’o) tracks the drive to Shanghai and informs Mace, German agent Marie Schmidt (Diane Kruger), and Colombian psychologist for the DNI Graciela Rivera (Cruz). With the drive hidden inside an antique art piece, participants placed bids on the vase while simultaneously bidding on the drive over the darknet. The agents make a plan to infiltrate the auction and get the drive back but are thwarted. They are then taken to a safe space by the Chinese agent, who reveals herself as Lin Mi Sheng, and tells the group that the auction was an elaborate set-up.

    Nick quickly seeks to fix his mistake, locating Sheng’s safe space, and threatening and killing the agents' loved ones until Sheng gives up the drive. Khadijah destroys the drive but the women are implicated in the crimes and are forced to go on the run. A couple of months later, Mace and the other women seek revenge on Nick, who has been promoted by the CIA. Mace begins reminiscing to Nick about the story they were told in training of agent 355, an unnamed womanwho served as a spy for the colonies during the American Revolution. After poisoning Nick and leaving him to be arrested for his crimes, the women part ways but seem to have an understanding that they’ll probably work together again. The 355doesn’t overtly announce a sequel as Marvel films do with a post-credits scene but the ending leaves the story open for one. Despite the film’s title, the group of women is never formally referred to as the 355. This leaves potential for the story to continue; perhaps Mace could start a n...
