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

This is Brad Pitt, for crying out loud! Where can you send him undercover? In the CIA's Beverly Hills bureau?

"Spy Game" might have worked better if it didn't try to straddle the line between war and peace like an inept double agent.

... afterwards I realized that I had been maneuvered into rooting for a dangerously reckless and presumptuous man.

...takes the spy formula and dilutes it with wholly unnecessary plot twists and a flashback structure that's more confusing than anything else.

Has the makings of a good movie ... but right now its only 65 minutes long and encased in another 60 minutes of beurocratic debris.

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.
