Like the best Tony Scott films, Spy Game simultaneously questions and celebrates outmoded codes of masculine professionalism.

The kind of movie that represents an engaging evening’s diversion, but makes no impact and leaves no lasting impression.

Redford is cool in this movie. He's as cool as a Baskin Robbins delivery truck caught in New England's Blizzard of '78.

Briskly paced and has enough style to keep the formula and implausibilities, for the most part, out of mind.

It really is Redford's show. He works things so smoothly and with such a silver tongue that you honestly do believe the man was a top spy for the government.

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.
