In Vietnam, 1975, CIA veteran Nathan Muir (Robert Redford) recruits Tom Bishop (Brad Pitt) to work as a military assassin. Ten years later Muir and Bishop are working together in Beirut when Bishop falls in love with human rights activist Elizabeth Hadley (Catherine McCormack). Hadley is wanted by the Chinese, and when they finally get hold of her, Bishop goes solo and attempts to rescue her. When he also gets arrested, it falls to Muir to devise a way to save his friend's life.
A thinking person's thriller, Spy Game employs dense plotting without sacrificing the kinetic momentum that is director Tony Scott's trademark. The film has the byzantine scope of a novel, focusing on veteran CIA operative Nathan Muir (Robert Redford), whose protégé Tom Bishop (Brad Pitt) is scheduled for execution in a Chinese prison. It's Muir's last day before retiring (cliché alert!), and Bishop is being deliberately sacrificed by oily CIA officials to ensure healthy trade with China. Muir has 24 hours to rescue Bishop and his perfunctory love interest (Catherine McCormack), and Spy Game connects the mentor's end-run strategy to flashbacks of his student's exploits in Berlin, Beirut and beyond. Ambitious but emotionally bland--and not as exciting as Scott's Enemy of the State--Spy Game offers pass-the-torch humour between leather-faced Redford and pretty boy Pitt, and although their dialogue is occasionally limp, the movie compensates with efficient style and substance. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

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.
The story of Bishop's recruitment and his training by Muir is juxtaposed with Muir's efforts to find out what is going on and doing something about it. Fortunately Muir has a faithful and competent secretary (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) and the fact that nobody in the building is a field agent, which means it is really not a fair battle of wits. The flashbacks on Redford training Pitt (sometimes it is hard to remember these guys are playing characters) are interesting, but sketchy, as are the missions out in the field. Muir lays down the lay for Bishop, which includes such gems as "Don't EVER risk your life for an asset. If it comes down to you or them... send flowers.Read more ›
Now the con's. Okay this movie is predictable. It's a spy movie. I don't want an ending I know from the start, I want an ending that satisfied all the answers that were swimming in my head, yet somehow evaded explanation. This did not happen in this movie. Everything was obvious, although Redford's performance did fool many.
And my other problem, they didn't use Brad Pitt enough.Read more ›
