A Call to Spy

Critics Consensus

A Call to Spy overcomes a surprising lack of tension with an overall engaging tribute to an oft-overlooked group of World War II heroes.

Critic Reviews for A Call to Spy

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (24) | Rotten (8)

  • A Call to Spy has a stolid pacing that makes you feel every minute of its two-hours-plus running time. But it's still an interesting story that's yet to fully come into the light.

  • Like the story it follows, it's the result of many talented women working together for the common good.

  • It's refreshing to come at the spy genre from a different angle and rewarding to be introduced to these extraordinary women. Just don't expect a pulse-pounder or even a particularly atmospheric, experiential film.

  • An engrossing and often thrilling spy drama, and a tribute to this courageous and diverse group of women.

    October 2, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The title may fall flat but the movie, a sturdy directorial debut for producer Lydia Dean Pilcher, gets to the heart of the matter.

  • "A Call to Spy" is a welcome, albeit imperfect, addition to the existing slate of movies about World War II.
