Capably anchored by [Robert] Redford giving the spunkiest, most alive performance he gave in a decade in either direction.

Two generations of Hollywood 'golden boys' team up in Tony Scott's Spy Game, a neatly plotted espionage thriller. [Blu-ray]

... 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.

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

Redford is great - treat the rest on a don't-need-to-know basis.

It just isn't thrilling enough -- an impression compounded by Scott's tiresomely overenthusiastic and gimmicky camerawork.

An adventure that holds its own among the classics of the genre, a smart, sturdy and fascinating glimpse inside a hidden world.

Another Hollywood-style action flick that entertains, but isn't terribly original...

Pretentious camera tricks and confusing flashbacks overshadow fine performances.

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.
