To insert dynamic cinematography, you usually need something remotely dynamic to be happening on screen... Oliver Stone has made a career out of [not doing] this.

Scott applies his usual flashy, stylized and high-voltage craftsmanship to the perfect vehicle here.

El espionaje no significa ser James Bond o Ethan Hunt el 100% de las veces, y aquí el duelo real es con el arma más útil y compleja: la inteligencia.

I'll admit the main story is implausible, but the flashbacks were spectacular, and the cast is really good here.

Writers Michael Frost Beckner and David Arata have written a truly riveting script, and cinematographer Daniel Mindel has done a great job of translating it visually.

It's clever and shows great control of craft, but it doesn't care, and so it's hard for us to care about.

A yawn, and the two glamour boys (who, by the way, look awful) are both snoring.

Happily, beneath the film's nostalgic veneer and tooth-rattling visual and aural effects lies a mature ambiguity that's unusual for a holiday blockbuster.

Tony Scott ... has done enough movies of this sort that at times it feels like he's sleepwalking through the hyperkinetic camera movements and rapid-fire editing

Like Pitt at his best, it's pretty, gritty, engrossing and fun.

An engrossing, tough-minded drama about the slippery morality of espionage and the harrowing decisions agents must make to serve the greater good.

The script by Michael Frost Beckner and David Arata manages somehow to be both tantalizingly complicated and comfortably predictable.

San Francisco Examiner

Spy Game is extraordinarily sleek and fleet, maintaining a breakneck momentum that could be likened to a runaway train or, more aptly, a heat-seeking missile.

Tony Toscano
Talking Pictures (U.S.)

Under the direction of Tony Scott, the film uses flash action and compelling camera work to move the story -- making Spy Game visually interesting.

Spy Game has blockbuster written all over it. The rental kind, not the box office kind.

Wittily scripted and wonderfully played by the veteran blond bombshell, Redford's HQ scenes sparkle.
