4.0 out of 5 stars There's Been An Incident, 22 Sep 2013
This review is from: Spy Game [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
I happened on to this film on a rainy, dreary day. It turned out to be a good film, all because of Robert Redford.

Robert Redford, plays Nathan Muir, as a CIA spy. we see him in the last 24 hours of his last day at work. Brad Pitt, plays Tom Bishop, as a young recruit. Catherine McCormack, plays Hadley, a love interest of Bishop. She was sent to China on a top secret mission, and when trouble developed, Bishop was sent to save her. All of this in a 25 year time span, and we see the past in flash backs, partly while Muir is being questioned by the CIA hierarchy. All the while Muir has been acting to get both Bishop and Hadley back, against the CIA's orders. As his last day takes place, we see how this develops and how his leaders really know nothing about him. All they think they know is wrong.

This is an action film, but much of it is head games. Redford as Muir is the film. Just when the powers that be, think they have the man, they are proved wrong, and it is the cunning of this man Muir, acted by Redford, that saves the film.
It kept me hooked.
