Tony Scott's 2001 spy movie is, as you might expect from the director, a more stylish affair than most. It's also more cerebral and less action packed than you might expect from a movie combining him, Robert Redford and Brad Pitt. Indeed, Redford's character spends the movie going through his last day at work, playing office politics - but playing it to great effect in a race against the clock to save the life of Brad Pitt, and interlaced with flashbacks which mean we do also get to see rather more of the action man Redford.

It's one of those plots that's a relief to watch on DVD as you can pause and rewind when the ambiguities or twists get too bemusing, although the DVD extras are rather lightweight.

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.

An intelligent espionage film!! Don't get me wrong I liked The Bourne Identity alot, but Spy Game is very much a different side to the spy genre. The agents in this film are much more believable. Generally all the CIA men are middle aged pen pushers quibbling over what to do to save face when Brad Pitt's character gets caught behind enemy lines (so to speak). The film juts back and forth between Redford on his last day in the office and the flashback story of how he and Pitt became colleagues / friends years earlier. The strength of Spy Game is in Redford's quite brilliant performance under interrogation from his own colleagues. Where there's little action here, the dialogue and performances make the secnes the most interesting. The flashback scenes where much of Scott's trademark action takes place, are oddly enough the parts that are hardest to follow. Spy Game is a solid and intelligent film, but it does get a little bit lost about two thirds of the way in. With a few minutes trimmed out around this point it could have warranted 5 stars, but minor quibbles like that aside it's still worthy of four for Redfords performance and some great cinematography.
