This review is from: Spy Game [DVD]  (DVD)
This film is for you if you like a bit of brain exercise. It has a few explosions alright, and two great leads....but it's the intellectual workout that impressed me.
The plot's a little like The Firm, perhaps. Not quite as good, but the same kind of thing: one man against an organisation.
There are a lot of twists and turns and, along with effective flashback scenes, this keeps the plot and the viewer on its toes. The acting is another worthy ingredient: Brad Pitt is good and Robert Redford is superb. Their pairing works too...if anyone was going to be a Rookie to Redford, it just has to be Brad Pitt.
Extra aren't bad. There're shorts on casting and choosing film locations. And I think that's about it.
All in all, a strong film with nice acting and a plot to get your teeth into. Recommend here.
