It's good-looking, reliably done, and spy drama fans should find it a robust enough example of the genre.

There's enough good explosive mayhem to let you know you are in a dangerous world of dangerous agents.

But I could have lived with all this, were it not for the complete absence of tension.

I found its lowered temperature agreeable. The action when it comes is the likely kind: punching, running, shooting, bonking on the head.

Spies delivers the vicarious pleasures of old-fashioned spy movies with the bold contemporary frankness of the best of cable.
