Nearly every scene pops with bright colors, and the characters have giant heads and big eyes, the better to convey their every emotion.

Spies In Disguise is the perfect Christmas movie having something for everyone. It offers a unique spoof on spy films, packs in a powerful message and is graced with the star power of Will Smith and Tom Holland to boot.
December 24, 2019
Spies in Disguise may not be revolutionary in any way, but it is a fun and entertaining family film appropriate for the holidays.
December 24, 2019
Spies In Disguise is buoyant, zippy and pleasing to look at. With all the glitter and rainbow weaponry at Beckett's disposal, the movie doesn't want for bright colours.
December 24, 2019
The central plot conceit of Spies in Disguise is so strange -- to the point that it's almost absurd -- that one has to admire it.
December 24, 2019
The problem with Spies in Disguise is not so much that it has a dumb premise, but that it doesn't seem to know what to do with that premise, throwing together a bunch of dopey jokes, spy-movie clichés and pigeon facts.

Unless their parents are secret agents, smallfry won't get any of it, even a big bathroom joke with a bigger word. The rest of us might smile occasionally.

Entertaining but ephemeral.

No disguising this one. A spy turning into a pigeon is terrible. Younger kids will find this appealing but the rest of us score it as pigeon poop.

The idea of a man turning into a pigeon is silly. That said, the film makes it work by fully embracing that silliness.
December 24, 2019
Once the initial fun of its premise has been milked, the movie simply runs completely dry on the ideas front and just settles into the groove of the standard kiddie blockbuster.

The lessons are so treacly, and their delivery method so single-minded, that the Valley Girl phrase "gag me with a spoon" springs to mind.

Spies in Disguise shines on its own. [Full Review in Spanish]
December 23, 2019
Its true charm lies in the interplay between Smith and Holland.
December 23, 2019
Kids will probably love it.
December 21, 2019
There's a level of craftsmanship that's to be admired, even as you tick off every predictable sequence and plot point as it advances steadily to its obvious conclusion.

I am dismayed to say this was the worst film I've seen all year.
December 20, 2019
A buddy movie, Bond spoof, body-swap comedy and action adventure all rolled into one, Spies in Disguise borrows lots of ideas and successfully tailors them to a junior audience...
December 20, 2019
Call it The Spy Who Doved Me: a body swap comedy pushed to unusually daft extremes, even by the standards of the form.

You leave the theater willing to see the protagonists again in a new mission. [Full review in Spanish]
