January 21, 2016
The reasons the romance lacks life and the mystery lacks intrigue are one and the same: Plot leads character. London Spy is a game someone else is playing.

London Spy is a mood piece, set in a blue-and-gray London and taking long, dawdling detours between plot twists. This might have worked if the mystery elements had been more coherent and interesting.

London Spy has a promising title - must be a nifty spy story, eh? Well, it is a spy story, sort of, but hardly nifty: You'll spend five hours searching for a secret decoder device to figure out how so much promise could be so haphazardly executed.

Whishaw's intense fixity of purpose could do nothing to defibrillate his DOA dialogue.
