    It's a weird mishmash of cynicism and sentimentality . . . If the narrative stuck with it's original bleak structure instead of turning into a love story with a happy ending I might have liked this more.

    From director Tony Scott comes the exciting and intense thriller Spy Game. When CIA operative Tom Bishop is captured by the Chinese and left for dead his former handler attempts to rescue him. Robert Redford and Brad Pitt lead the cast and give excellent performances. And the script is especially well-written, particularly the dialog, and does a great job at developing the characters. Also, Scott's directing brings a lot of tension and suspense to the scenes. Smart and provocative, Spy Game is an incredibly engaging film.

    Man oh man, it's not easy keeping alla world's nutcase reactionary knuckleheads under our protective thumb but, thanks to our boys and girls out of Langley, Virginia, whirred peas is a dish served throughout the whole wide world. Redford plays the administrative guy, dealing with smug policy hacks threats in the store, while Pitt is our boy in the field facing the usual gun-toting variety. Tony Scott films one scene in this CIA love lettet nonsensically revolving around an outdoor, roof of-some-overseas-building exchange. "What was that all about," I wondered.

    interesting film from Scott but its Redford & Pitt who are the best part of spy game. if you can keep up the plot you'll ignore the inevitable outcome.
